New Exhibition of works by Suzanne Hughes Sullivan. She states, "I am seeking to invoke a feeling of warmth and intimacy in the viewer, to make them feel as if they were a part of the scene and could reach out and pick up a piece of the fruit or take a sip of wine. I characterize my work as realistic but not photographic.”
“Art in the Eye of a Needle”
Microscopic Sculptor, Willard Wigan, MBE
January 29, 2010 March 27, 2010
Following the success of his three-year European tour and appearance on America’s ‘The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien,’ and the garnering the front page of the September 30, 2009 Wall Street Journal, the Atlanta Art Gallery will be the home to the work of the celebrated micro-sculptor, Willard Wigan, MBE. Willard makes the smallest works of art on the planet. His work, which has only recently been released for sale in America, has been described as ‘The Eighth Wonder of the World.’ The exhibit will run from January 29 March 27, 2010.
This is an exhibition not to be missed. Wigan will be exhibiting up to 15 new pieces of micro-sculptures released into the American market with which to mesmerize the people of Atlanta. The works, which are small enough to fit in the eye of a needle, will include Charlie Chaplin on the end of an eyelash, The Simpsons on a pinhead, Harry Potter & Friends and Mahlia Jackson within the eye of a needle. The sculptured pieces are housed in cases incorporating microscope lenses focused on the work. An appreciation of the size of the work is only achieved by viewing ‘in the flesh’.
Bill Dixon, gallery owner, states, “An exhibition of this type is extraordinary for the Atlanta Art Gallery. However, keeping with high quality and extremely skilled creativity this is a must to see. Come and experience micro-sculpture that is a complete privilege to have on exhibit at my gallery. Wigan’s work is utterly unique and a special opportunity for the people of Atlanta to witness firsthand the meeting of art and science.”
