In honor of MLK Day, we are sharing this work entitled “Your Choice” by Emma Amos which depicts Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X alongside one another. The work itself can be displayed in two different orientations, with one figure facing upward while the other is upside down. No matter how you choose to view it, Amos presents the two men as connected and inseparable, capturing the essence of contrasting philosophies bound by a shared pursuit of racial justice.
Today is your last chance to see this work on view in "Emma Amos: Color Odyssey."

Exhibit Review: Emma Amos “Color Odyssey“ at the Philadelphia Museum of Art

Secondly, I was very interested in seeing the work of a Black woman artist that I never…

The Many Styles of Emma Amos, and Her Drive to Get Free
The Many Styles of Emma Amos, and Her Drive to Get Free
PHILADELPHIA — Spend a few hours on social media, and you’ll come across heated discussions about who gets to speak for whom. That makes it a good time for an exhibition of art by Emma Amos, a painter, printmaker and weaver who grappled with age-old questions of identity and authority that feel freshly urgent. “Emma Amos: Color Odyssey,” a survey of her work organized by the Georgia Museum of Art…

Third Thursday events and exhibitions for April 15
The next Third Thursday — the monthly evening of art in Athens, Georgia — is scheduled for Thursday, April 15, from 6 to 9 p.m. All exhibitions are free and open to the public. It is recommended that you contact a venue in advance to confirm its current status or ticketing protocols, especially in light of the potential for changing circumstances during COVID-19.
The Porcelain and Decorative Arts Museum at the Center for Art and Nature
The Porcelain and Decorative Arts Museum at the Center for Art and Nature at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia will be opening its doors for timed ticket access (https://botgarden.uga.edu/porcelain-and-decorative-arts-museum-timed-access-now-available/). The newest building at the garden holds the personal porcelain and decorative arts of Deen Day Sanders, a longtime supporter of State Botanical Garden. The space is designed to draw environmental and conservation connections to the collections in the museum.
Eight different gallery spaces blend conservation, botanicals, art, beauty and curiosity. Adjacent to the building is the Discovery and Information Garden, where visitors can connect to the living botanical collection that is represented in many of the porcelain works in the museum. Please join staff and docents for a time in the Porcelain and Decorative Arts Museum to develop your own ideas on art and nature and become inspired to see the natural environment through the lens of the many artists on display.

“Diorama” — An installation by Jaime Bull in the Glass Cube. Imagine going to the natural history museum and looking through the glass window into another world. Instead of woolly mammoths or sub-Saharan zebras, Bull’s installation is populated with large-scale assemblages of wicker furniture painted in a psychedelic color palette. Supported by the 2020 Arts in Community Resilience Award through the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission and Athens-Clarke County Unified Government.
“Athens Facades” — Photography by Mike Landers. The artist took these building portraits at dark downtown and in Five Points between 2000 and 2002. His first building portrait shows what had been The Gap on Clayton Street, which left a beautifully symmetrical illuminated façade and an empty interior. Landers finds this an exercise of looking in and looking out.

Emma Amos wittily inserts her own likeness into this domestic scene of her friends by reproducing an earlier self-portrait titled "The Flower Sniffer" on the wall behind the dancing couple. The effect of this insertion is complex—while Amos’s image engages the viewer with a direct gaze, its presence is marginal to the scene itself and ignored by the people in the room. See this work on view in "Emma Amos: Color Odyssey."

Philadelphia Museum of Art “Who is Emma Amos?” (2022)
Promotional video for the “Emma Amos: Color Odyssey” exhibition at Philadelphia Museum of Art. A painter and printmaker who was a member of the African-American art collective Spiral as well as the feminist art group Guerrilla Girls, Amos’s work explores issues of race, gender, and art history. I highly recommend the show if you’re in the area, but hurry, it closes on January 17.
