The Well of Roswell is presenting a set of works by artist Meagan Murphy titled “The Egyptian Gods and Goddesses: Unleash Your Ancient Essence” now through December 9.
A multimedia producer and artist, Murphy specializes in portraiture and documentary film. She worked for PBS in Boston, where she produced award-winning content. Following a transformational tour through Egypt in 2011, she sketched and researched many of the deities she saw there.
“With so many of us having strong past-life ties to Egypt, the exhibit is powerful,” says Becky Arrington, co-owner of The Well. “The energy of each of the gods and goddesses comes through and speaks to the viewer.” ❧
Phoenix & Dragon Bookstore, in partnership with Art Career Mentoring Services (ACMS) at Kennesaw State University (KSU), is presenting “The Celestial Show,” an art exhibit featuring art students at KSU. The exhibition will be on display from November 5 through January 7 and is free to the public.
The public is invited to meet the artists at the exhibit’s opening on November 5 from 4 to 5:30 p.m.
Phoenix & Dragon Bookstore hosts the exhibition annually to “celebrate the ethereal realms and the magic within our skies,” says the bookstore’s owner, Candace Apple. Curator Rachel Mara seeks to showcase up-and-coming artists who find themselves “at home among the stars.” ❧
Heart Soul and Art, a metaphysical shop in Marietta, is presenting “It’s All Magic,” a juried art show now through December 2. The exhibit showcases more than 50 artists from the Atlanta area. The theme of the show “embraces the infinite possibilities of the mystical, surreal, and unexplainable to awaken the magic within each one of us,” says Sharron Ragan, owner of Heart Soul and Art.
An artist’s reception will be held November 11 from 5 to 6:30 p.m., and winners’ ribbons and a total of $500 in cash rewards will be presented.
