Kibbee Gallery is one of the DIY galleries — that is, founded and curated by artists — that now flouish in Atlanta. Preston Snyder has turned over the first floor of a house in Poncey-Highland to Ann-Marie Manker and Ben Goldman, who mount exhibitions that give mostly youngish artists a chance to show their work and use the gallery’s quirky spaces to experiment with site-specific installations.
“Sprout,” curated by Manker, features four artists–Kelly Clonninger, Katherine Gaddy, Julia Kubica and Pam Rogers–who share an interest in nature and its metaphorical possibilities but pursue it in distinctive ways.
The works are mostly small, as befits the domestic setting. They are characterized by meticulous craftsmanship and lots of good drawing, and they radiate the pleasure the artists take in their laborious processes.
Friday’s closing party is your last chance to see “Sprout.” 6-9 p.m. May 28, 688 Linwood Avenue.
