In a recent review for the New York Times, Roberta Smith writes about the High's current exhibition, Dalí: The Late Work, concluding: “It is well worth the trip to Atlanta.”

Along the same lines, I have to suggest a journey just a little further south to Milledgeville where two concurrent literary-themed exhibitions (yes, the ones I was excited about in July), Mickey Smith: Collocations and Stories by Jessica Bruah, are finally opening Wednesday, September 15 at the GCSU Museum. (You may remember that the Georgia College museum houses a gallery dedicated to the career of Southern author Flannery O'Connor, a celebrated alumna.)

Already acquainted with Mickey's work, I'm anxious to get down to the campus and see the installation. I've heard that her large-scale photographs of bound journals and periodicals look amazing in the gallery. Above is a peek behind the scenes, but Curator Shannon Morris says these pieces really need to be viewed in person to be fully appreciated. And of course I'm looking foward to learning more about Jessica's show. If you're interested in attending the opening reception, that time again is 5 to 6 p.m., September 15. The exhibitions will be open to the public through November 19, 2010.
