don’t overdo it, do it over
Presented by The John Riepenhoff Experience
Artist John Riepenhoff curates the miniature gallery The John Riepenhoff Experience, which presents don’t overdo it, do it over from Saige Rowe, a native of Conyers, GA.
A recent graduate of the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, Rowe works primarily with video and photography, exploring the boundaries of both. She is especially fascinated by the flatness of the media, seeing it as both a subject and challenge for her practice. The exhibition’s title work uses interactivity to address the abstraction of a linear narrative.
Join us for the opening at Nasty Cowboy, located at 2230 Cloverdale Dr. SE in Atlanta!
