Expedition fun from Bryson Thurston: daily 7 am-7pm until January 11th; The Sentient Bean, 13 E. Park Ave.
The solo exhibition blurs the lines between adventure and misfortune with a playful series of mixed media paintings created in 2021; inspired by the time on Tybee Island and Savannah in late spring. Cowboys, explorers and characters in his pictures are reminiscent of a child’s adventure fantasies and seem to have their own story. Bryson decides to leave a lot to the imagination: the series invites the viewer’s inner child to play and arouses a sense of joy and curiosity that we all knew once.

Benjamin Jones work 1994-2020: Through December 22nd, Laney Contemporary, 1810 Mills B Lane Blvd .; Laneycontemporary.com.
New sculptures, including uniquely eccentric rabbits, skulls, and elephants, emerged when Jones uncovered stored boxes of pins and abandoned styrofoam rabbit shapes that he had saved over a decade ago. The materials, carefully embellishing each shape with paper mache and colorful needles, speak to Jones as discarded and reborn objects from his past and materials for his future, such as sculptural pin cushions that haunt us from a mentality of the Depression or homemade Fabergé eggs, they exude a revitalized sense of culture reuse that is required during virus lockdown.
The rabbits’ acupuncture fluff and the adjacent pierced skulls appear to be protected with a layer of experience and armor.
Social distancing on the lawn and in the gallery. The personal selection of drawings and sculptures shows the continuities of a creative life and the connections between past iconography and new energy.
“White wig” by Mehryl Levisse: December 12th at the SCAD Museum of Art, scadmoa.org/exhibitions/white-wig. Levisse’s multifaceted practice explores notions of subjectivity and identity related to queer experience. With gender-specific symbols and images associated with pomp, masquerade and cabaret, the artist produces an extravagant visual language that questions generally accepted notions of masculinity and femininity. Levisse’s performances and installations function as stages on which gender is re-mixed and veiled. As a moderator, the artist stages the space in order to question the limits of the body and the social codes that define our behavior.
