about us
{ surprise! }


Poem 88 gallery and bookshop will be temporarily closed until mid-May when we re-open in a new space at 1170 Howell Mill Road, Westside Provisions District, Atlanta GA 30318. The new, larger space, currently occupied by Seed Factory children's shop, will provide three distinct salons: the front space for current exhibitions, the center space for the bookshop and reading room and the back space for exhibitions of work in inventory.

Plans are in the works for more specifically community-engaged practice directed by gallery curator and owner, Robin Bernat, in collaboration with Poem 88 artists including Julia Kjelgaard and Steven L. Anderson. Activities will be focused on greater communication and interaction between White Provision shop owners, employees, and the community along the Howell Mill corridor including the residents of Our Sister's House shelter.

Our May show will feature paintings and sculpture by Atlanta artist In Kyoung Chun. An MFA graduate from GSU, Chun received the Emerging Artist Award from the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs in 2012-13 and was also a Walthall Fellow through WonderRoot Center. She has had two residencies at the Hambidge Center and will present work focusing on qi energy developed over the past two years.

In the summer, Poem 88 will present works by two artists new to the gallery, Atlantan Hannah Tarr (above left), a RISD BFA graduate and Micah Cash (below left) of Charlotte, N.C. an MFA graduate of Connecticut College and an instructor in painting at UNC-Charlotte.
