Macon Arts Alliance presents an opening reception for a new show by Andrew Catanese on Friday, January 4th from 5-8 PM at Macon Arts Gallery at 486 First Street.  Join us for an Artist Meet & Greet with light refreshments sponsored by Spa Medical, Vein Specialists of the South and Rosenberg Financial. The event is free and open to the public. The new exhibit will be on display through January 25, 2019.

Artist Bio
Andrew Catanese attended the Sam Fox School of Art and Design at Washington University in St. Louis where he obtained his BFA in Studio Art. He grew up near Richmond, Virginia and currently lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia from his studio at the Goat Farm.

Show Statement
The figurative, narrative paintings are characterized by a neo-gothic style and horror vacui aesthetic. The dense, tapestry-like images are populated with figures in disguise, caught in moments of violence and intimacy, and surrounded by the thick, heavy native foliage of the South. The work critically addresses the rigid moral dogmas inherent in many of the appropriated narratives. Catanese's work depicts qualities similar to Southern Gothic writers like Zora Neale Hurston, Truman Capote, Flannery O'Connor, and Carson McCullers. Simultaneously, the integration of myth with landscape in the paintings explores the idea that linking stories to places shapes our our collective identity and celebrates the way ties are strengthened to our homes and our values.

In addition, Helms College culinary students receive experiential learning opportunities through service at Edgar's Bistro.

Named for Edgar Helms, founder of Goodwill Industries, Edgar’s offers guests in Macon a true “win-win” situation. You get to enjoy creative cuisine and delectable desserts and also enjoy that warm feeling inside that comes from helping others.
