Review of LATinGA in AJC

Pilar Martinez

Spruill Gallery’s “LatinGA” features eight Atlanta artists with Latin roots, but don’t expect insights or epiphanies about being Latin or Georgian. The artists come from different countries, and their origins play very different roles in their art -- for some not at all. Gallery director Hope Cohn uses the theme as an umbrella rather than a scaffold, a way to corral a group of artists who merit our attention. The exhibit succeeds quite well as a series of mini-solo displays.

The bottom line: Spruill Gallery does a good job of showcasing undersung Georgia artists, as it does here with a group whom you’ll want to know about.
