The Hudgens Center for the Arts is devoted to all things paper this summer. Its four exhibits, on view through September 3, encompass limited-edition prints, book arts and — surprise! — dress design.
The Book Arts Invitational Exhibition at Hudgens shows a range of approaches to the genre, from text-dominant works to Brian Dettmer‘s intricate sculptures and Eileen Wallace‘s evocative hand-made paper pieces.
“Pressing Matters,” which occupies the main gallery, is a juried presentation of works by members of the Atlanta Printmakers Studio. A six-year-old cooperative and grass-roots success story, it offers studio space and equipment to its members and educational opportunities to the community.

APS also conducts residencies for emerging artists. You can meet the current fellows, Jessica Caldas and Ann Otterness, and see their work at their gallery talk on Thursday, July 14, at APS’s West End headquarters.
