'H.C. WONKO HOLIDAY SHOW'
Championing the art of lowbrow for the past few years at its former
Bennett Street location in Buckhead, the Alcove Gallery recently
moved to a larger space that can accommodate events such as this
month's Willy Wonka-themed show.
Featuring works by artists known for subject matter ranging from
zombies to monkeys to wide-eyed women, locals like Dave Cook, Charlie
Owens, Dirk Hays and Bethany Marchman will be joined by national and
international artists such as Barcelona's Sergio Mora and Berlin's
Nastja Holtfreter for this festive holiday show. Aside from each
piece featuring that artist's sugarcoated slant on the Roald Dahl
classic, the entire gallery will be transformed into a chocolate
factory for this weekend's opening party. Dancers from Blast-Off
Burlesque will perform as Oompa girls and local bluegrass outfit the
Floating Coats will provide musical morsels of delight.
