Culture notes: Memory painter Linda Anderson exhibit (and sale) at KSU; Rialto’s Leslie Gordon honored

VISUAL ARTS
Memory painter at KSU

Northeast Georgia folk artist Linda Anderson is the rare painter with a waiting list of collectors. So it’s an unexpected twist that “An Artful Memory,” an exhibit of her memory paintings opening Oct. 18 at the Kennesaw State University Fine Arts Gallery, will include four new pieces for sale, ranging $5,000-$15,000. Anderson is donating 30 percent to KSU’s College of the Arts. Opening reception 5-8 p.m., with Anderson signing her book, “Flashes of Memory: An Appalachian Self-Portrait.” Free. 770-499-3223, www.kennesaw.edu. HOWARD POUSNER

Rialto leader honored

Leslie Gordon, director of Georgia State University’s Rialto Center for the Arts since 2003, recently was named recipient of the Mary Beth Treen Award, recognizing her contributions to the performing arts presenting and touring industry. The downtown this season is presenting everything from Israeli and Turkish roots music to New Orleans funk to international dance — a mix aimed at engaging the University System of Georgia’s most diverse school. The Treen Award is presented annually by South Arts in collaboration with the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and the New England Foundation for the Arts during the Performing Arts Exchange conference in Baton Rouge, La.
