ATLANTA, GA: Winner, winner, chicken dinner! Macey Ley will exhibit her new TV Dinner series of large-scale paintings at the Rialto Center for the Arts May 3 – June 23, 2017. She is joined by Atlanta-based artist Tom Francis in the duo show entitled Well-Fed Endorsements of the Uncanny, a series of bold paintings that dazzle the senses and provoke thoughtful consideration of the unseen.
TV Dinner paintings by Macey Ley are an ode to nostalgia and cultural myth, where an icon stands in for far more than food. It is not so much the food itself viewers recall as the experience of how their families gathered (or didn’t) over an evening meal. At once heroic and humorous, these large-scale paintings with peas the size of giant grapefruits challenge observers to reflect on their own eating-watching habits and to form their own conclusions about one of the most revered American icons.
The exhibition runs May 3 – June 23, 2017 with a reception June 1 from 5:00-8:00p.m. The gallery is located at the Rialto Center for the Arts, 80 Forsyth St SW, Atlanta, GA 30303.
Gallery hours: Mon – Fri: 10AM – 4PM and during performances.
