Free shuttles run between the galleries, departing from the south side of the main academic building at 1600 Peachtree St., beginning at 5:45 p.m. Participants may join the gallery hop at any one of the three locations. Light refreshments are provided. The event is free and open to the public, and complimentary on-site parking is available at the main campus.

February’s gallery hop features:

“Everything Matters” Exhibition by Deborah Poynton
ACA Gallery of SCAD, 1280 Peachtree St., Atlanta, Ga.
Feb. 19-March 29
Artist gallery talk, 5 p.m., Feb. 19
South African artist Deborah Poynton’s psychologically powerful paintings command the exhibition space in a unique capacity with an enigmatic balance between the monumentality of her canvases and the sensitivity with which she paints the figure. “Everything Matters” ties a selection of Poynton’s most recent paintings together to exercise these physical and relational connections within her complex tableaux. The exhibition is part of the Atlanta gallery hop and is free and open to the public.

“The Slipper Tongue and Other Works” Exhibition by Jonathan Field
Trois Gallery, 1600 Peachtree St., Atlanta, Ga.
Feb. 19-March 13
The exhibitions department presents “The Slipper Tongue and Other Works” by SCAD art history professor Jonathan Field. New works on velvet and rubber from Field’s ongoing series, “Maxwell’s Demon,” employ appropriated media and art historical images to communicate entropic messages and obscure situations. Each image is carefully crafted from thousands of steel pinheads that shimmer against black, saturated surfaces. A reception will take place Feb. 19, 6-8 p.m., in conjunction with the SCAD-Atlanta Gallery Hop. The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
