Reception for Artist Deborah Landry at Mason Murer on April 6
     Artist Deborah Landry of Sharpsburg will soon be leaving Coweta County with a BANG -- well, actually THREE BANGS!!  The first BANG will be the display of several of her art works at the prestigious Mason Murer Fine Art Gallery in Atlanta from April 6 through May 5, 2007 as part of the University of West Georgia Atlanta Gallery Project Award Exhibition entitled "Nature, Nostalgia, and Nepotation".  There will be an Artists Reception held on the opening night from 7PM through 10 PM, which is free and open to the public.   The Mason Murer Gallery is located at 199 Armour Drive in Atlanta.  Information about the Gallery is available on its website www.masonmurer.com or by calling 404-879-1500. 
    The art in Landry's display will be all new work.  Included will be a ceramic installation, engravings, and wooden sculptures.   One of these sculptures, shown here, symbolizes the wanton clear-cutting of trees prior to the building of the typical modern housing development.  The wood in the sculpture was obtained from stumps recovered from a clear-cutting prior to burning.  The houses sitting on the stumps are ceramic. Landry's creativity is apparent in this unique form of protest against the clear-cutting abomination. 
    The second and third BANGS will be the grand openings of large mural public art works Landry did for Douglasville and Fairburn.  These will be announced as soon as the dates and details have been determined.
