Buckhead’s Blue Heron Nature Reserve Hosts Virtual Art Exhibit

Buckhead’s Blue Heron Nature Reserve is hosting a virtual exhibit by Alison Hamil, its artist-in-residence, from September 12 to December 7.

“Between,” an exhibition of watercolor-style images created with digital media, will also be open for in-person viewing by appointment only at the Blue Heron at 4055 Roswell Road. An in-person closing reception could take place if the pandemic situation permits at that time, according to a press release.

Hamil said in the press release that the pandemic has affected his exposure in other ways. She originally intended to create works based on mushrooms, related to the natural landscape of Blue Heron. Instead, she turned to works that might work better for virtual viewing. “Between” features images based on chakras, a spiritual concept from Hinduism and other philosophies.

In April, the city of Brookhaven commissioned Hamil to paint a public mural expressing unity in the pandemic. It included a stained glass style design and the phrase “Together Brookhaven”.
