Arrested Frames—Through May 9
Featuring paintings, mixed media, and animation by Temme Barkin-Leeds. Admission is free and the public is invited.
Barkin-Leeds has exhibited her work in numerous shows in Atlanta and Washington, D.C. Her Arrested Frames series “was created in 2012 to freeze and arrest images from shooter video games, making them unable to move and unable to suggest a real environment… The paintings and drawings interfere with the games by making them immobile and abstract.” A portion of proceeds from sales during this exhibition will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
