Artists Atelier of Atlanta
Featuring work by: Jan Lewin

Exhibition: Sun, Sep 1, to Thu, Oct 31 2013

This exhibit is comprised of mixed media pieces inspired by photographs taken in India during the artist's stay in winter 2013 at the Nek Chand Rock Garden in Chandigarh, India. The artist, Jan Lewin, was one of two Americans chosen for a four-week artists' residency in the visionary folk art garden, created by world-renown, outsider artist, Nek Chand. The 36-acre garden was inspired and built at the direction of Nek Chand, Today, the garden is a journey through a magical fantasy land with thousands of mosaic sculptures, waterfalls, meandering paths and rock walls. It is visited by as many as 5,000 tourists a day. Lewin, a life-long artist, was inspired by the mosaics, vivid colors and textures of India to produce textural tablets imbedded with transferred and manipulated digital photographs. The colors and textures are meant to simulate the mosaics, white wash, concrete and plaster walls found throughout the country. The Artists' Atelier, where Lewin is participating artist, is a working artists' studio and gallery located on Miami Circle in Buckhead.

Opening Reception: Sun, Oct 6, 1pm - 4pm
