Seven people of various ages and shades of grey stand in a group all looking up toward the sky. Nearby an ordinary looking guy sits on top of an 8 ft. tall column. The constructed wood sculptures stand outside my studio waiting to be delivered to public art exhibitions in Chattanooga and Atlanta. You can see them and more at his Open Studio and Sculpture Trail event – Sept. 2, 3, and 4 from 11am – 6pm.
The group of seven figures is for a two-year exhibition at the Bessie Smith Cultural Center in Chattanooga’s Martin Luther King district. The title “Future and a Hope” comes from the prophet Jeremiah – For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11. “Ordinary Guy” sitting casually up on the column honoring everyday people will be part of this year’s Art on the Atlanta Beltline event. The Beltline, Where Atlanta Comes Together, is a new public space being developed in Atlanta on a 22-mile historic railroad corridor.
