Past Event June 14, 2016 / 6:30pm – 9:00pm
Home is Where the Art Is
Susan Bridges’ home and gallery are located in historic Inman Park. Built in 1893 for the Robert Winship family, the home has been restored, a charm on the necklace of Inman Park’s historic landmarks and buildings. Bridges’ home is a beautifully constructed Victorian home. Her interests in contemporary artwork create a beautiful juxtaposition of classically rendered beauty and modernity. On view are works primarily from whitespace artists such as Amy Pleasant, Sarah Emerson, Seana Reilly, Ann Stewart, Wendy Given, Suellen Parker, Teresa Cole, Tommy Taylor, Pete Schulte, Eric Mack, Julia Hill, Mimi Hart Silver and Matt Haffner. Bridges’ home is one of well-preserved history and combined with her interests in the nuances and multi-facets of the contemporary, has shaped up to be a house, gallery and artistic space with a life and character all its own.
For 15 years, Atlanta native Susan Bridges curated pop-up shows around the city in churches, U-Haul facilities, shipping containers, and an underground parking garage. In 2006 she opened Whitespace Gallery in a former carriage house behind her Victorian home in Inman Park. Today the gallery represents more than 40 local and national artists, who’ve shown work at the Smithsonian Institution, the Venice Biennale, and Art Basel Miami Beach.
Guests will receive an email with address and parking details the morning of the event.
