Thanks to Flux Projects, Atlanta has a steady flow of temporary art installations throughout the city (I really loved Charlie Brouwer’s Rise Up Atlanta last April in Freedom Park on Moreland). The current public commission is Caroline Lathan-Stiefel’s Ocean. In general, her work features labor crafting processes, such as sewing, weaving (often with pipe cleaners), and crocheting, to create abstract landscapes and biologically-inspired structures. While Lathan-Stiefel is not from Atlanta, her work is heavily inspired by late Georgian native Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden, most evident in her material choices and mosaic composition. Ocean is no exception to this palette. More after the jump →

The Indie Craft Experience is one of favorite craft organization/events in Atlanta co-founded by our very own Shannon Mulkey and creator of a bardis Christy Petterson! This is their second year doing a holiday pop-up shop, and it is one of the best places to do all of your holiday shopping in one spot. Nestled in the back of Criminal Records Atlanta, you can find handmade gifts from mostly local artists (if not local, the rest are domestic — handmade in the USA!) while having an abundance of gifts for the music/comic book lover in your life in the Criminal Records shop. They’re only open a few more days (through Christmas Eve) and they’re having a great event this Thursday filled with boozy hot cocoa, treats from Bookie Macarons (YUM!), and tote bag giveaways printed by Fallen Arrows and designed by Sarah Watts of Wattsalot.
