“White Wig” by Mehryl Levisse: until December 12 at the SCAD Museum of Art, scadmoa.org/exhibitions/white-wig. Levisse’s multifaceted practice explores notions of subjectivity and identity linked to the queer experience. Using gender-related symbols and images associated with pageantry, masquerade and cabaret, the artist produces an extravagant visual language that questions commonly accepted conceptions of masculinity and femininity. Levisse’s performances and installations act as stages on which the genre is remixed and obscured. As master of ceremonies, the artist orchestrates the space to question the limits of the body and the societal codes that constitute our behavior.
“Door & Garden”: until September 17, then go to the chat gallery until October 9. Location Gallery @ Austin Hill Realty, 251 Bull St .; the gallery’s profits were donated to Friends of Coastal Gardens throughout the exhibition. Friends of the Coastal Gardens will also be holding a container garden sale on our giant staircase that faces Liberty Street.
Artists include Jamie Azevedo, Laurie Darby, Antione deVilliers, Joy Dunigan, Tate Ellington, Calli Laundre, Bellamy Murphy, Dana Richardson, Katherine Sandoz, Sarah Volker, Lisa D. Watson and Heather Young. Each artist was invited to visit Georgia’s Coastal Botanical Gardens and create works inspired by their surroundings.
August artists: Gallery 209, 209 E. River St .; galerie209savannah.com. Hannah Burtnik and Olivia Beaumont.
Burtnik creates functional pottery and garden art using the process of wheel throwing and hand building. She is fascinated by the different techniques for sculpting, adding textures and decoration to her pieces. Hannah is particularly drawn to the simple white glazing to showcase the patterns. All his pieces are unique.
Beaumont is best known for her oil paintings of richly dressed animal figures. Olivia’s paintings are full of historical artistic references. His use of Renaissance themes, Golden Age painting techniques, and costumes borrowed from historical nobility transports viewers to an old world. His portraits have been described by curators as haunting and moving. Its intention is to invite the viewer into an enchanted world, while striking human accords of wonder, beauty and humor.

Photography and video. Los Angeles-based artist Kevin Cooley captures shape-changing elements like lines, curves and shadows by performing controlled explosions in the desert under the direction of a master pyrotechnician. Working with various chemical compositions, he creates different shapes, shapes, colors and movements. In this sense, each image represents time and light exploding in the form of colorful and abstract spirals, clouds, tendrils and rays, much like the fireworks we see at this time of year. . Inspired by forest fires, nebulae, jellyfish, the motion trails of distant stars, and the dynamics of smoke in the atmosphere, Cooley’s work explores human fascination with natural formations and their common visual properties.
