Now Showing September 7th - October 7th 

Paintings & Performances by Amanda Grae Platner
Presented and Curated by: Joe Dreher AKA JOEKINGATL

Amanda’s work deals with the positive adaptation of stressful, uncontrollable situations.  Resolve can be strength; standing up with determination to overcome, facilitate change, and force progress. Conversely, we can settle; resolve to give in, give up, or look away.  Our personal lives, as well as our local and global communities are saturated with a constant drip of stressors, creating a continual need to choose the level of our involvement with progress.  Drowning by Resolve, is a body of work exploring these challenges through painting and endurance performance.

Platner is an artist living and working in Atlanta. She is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, with a BFA in painting. Recently her piece Bipartisan (Work Week Performance) was featured on WABE 90.1-FM’s show City Lights with Lois Reitzes, and in Atlanta Magazine.  More information can be found at www.amandagraeplatner.com
