Last night’s “Penny Candy” exhibition by artist Hebru Brantley at the Loews Atlanta Hotel was a really cool event! I’ll admit that I hadn’t heard of him prior to receiving a few emails leading up to the event, but clearly I was in the minority. If I had done a quick search, I’d have known he’s one of the most sought after artists right now. Shame on me.
There were about 20 pieces of his work on display, along with lots of free candy. Topped off with free drinks and a DJ, the event was definitely more of a party than a traditional gallery opening.
If you happen to be in Atlanta’s Cabbagetown neighborhood, you can see a Hebru Brantley mural up close on the side of The Cube Gallery at the corner of Memorial Drive and Powell Street.
Enjoy the photos.
