The Faces That We Face by artist Richard Halprin

AtomArt Gallery is proud to open 2019 with emerging artist Richard Halprin of The Inkling Fountain. “The Faces That We Face” exhibit runs from January 12th, 2019 – February 15th, 2019

Join us for the opening reception on
Saturday, January 12th from 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM.
Meet the artist and enjoy live music, hors d'oeuvres and refreshments. “My art is a crisis of crisscross addictions, to facets of faces, to fact into fiction. A steady slipstream of whimsical quips, of tightening focus to loosening grips, a subtle barrage of middle finger flips, a punch in the nose, a kiss on the lips. A chamber of torture with morphine drips, a passive aggressive acid trip through the minefields of passion, that digressions unzip. Peeping Tom confessions and manic solo missions performed without practice or permission slips” – Richard Halprin

In support of Richard Halprin's charity, the William Booth Legal Aid Clinic (https://centralusa.salvationarmy.org/emi/fight-for-justice), AtomArt will donate a portion of all sales for the duration of the exhibit.

P.S. Save the Date & Plan for a perfect date night for Valentine’s Day! Closing Reception takes place on February 14th 2018 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Cyndy Weeks-Pattersons: Canticles of Lost, Rusted and Useless Items

A little bit about Cyndy Weeks-Patterson ........
BFA- Center for Creative Studies- Detroit, Michigan 1988
MEd-Art Therapy- Wayne State University- Detroit, Michigan 1999
I am a Native Detroiter. I am also often considered a traitor to my roots. In 2001, I relocated with my family to western Massachusetts to open a Bed & Breakfast. Wanderlust had been pulling at me for many years, and I felt it was time to experience life in an entirely different way. Over 30 years a native inner-city Detroiter, and as most fellow Detroiters, my relationship to the city was...complicated.

A painting by Atom Kaiser

Atom Kaiser, a Detroit-based artist, has opened a public art gallery in Ferndale, called Atom Art, featuring a collection of his abstract paintings, and eventually work from other artists.

“The gallery is something I’ve always wanted to do … the idea is to sort of reach out and let other aspiring artists have a place to show, too,” Kaiser says.

Kaiser is opening the gallery in partnership with the Brain Injury Association of Michigan, a non-profit organization based in Brighton that provides resources, treatment, and support for those affected by brain injuries. He says 20 percent of all proceeds from Atom Art’s ribbon-cutting event on April 16 will be donated to the association.

Kaiser suffered brain damage from an automobile accident in 1995,  struggling with memory issues and concentration problems. He says he felt inspired to paint, which became a catalyst to his healing. Kaiser heard about the Brain Injury Association of Michigan several months ago and felt the organization presented a great opportunity for a partnership.

“I felt ‘Wow, what a great charity for me to support,’ especially because its near and dear to me (because) I’m a survivor,” he says.

The 3,000-square feet gallery, located at 522 E. Nine Mile Rd. at the corner of Paxton Street, currently features 15 works of Kaiser’s art.

“I left the space sparse because I want people to be able to use it for different things … I don’t want (the artists) to be limited by the fact that there is a wall in the middle of the gallery,” Kaiser says. “I think we are planning early June (to begin displaying other artists’ work) and then it will be quarterly shows.”

Kaiser says the Brain Injury Association and the gallery are also in future discussions regarding art workshops and classes.

“There’s a project that they are doing with masks … the thing with traumatic head injuries is that you look the same, but you’re completely different inside, so the idea was to let people make masks to show how the feel inside and it got a terrific response … so I’ve offered up the space for them to work on that.”
