Culture notes: Art exhibit is one positive about Hartsfield-Jackson Airport holiday delays; details on Nexus, Artadia awards

VISUAL ARTS
Creativity takes wing in airport exhibit
We wouldn’t wish a delayed or canceled flight on anyone this holiday season. But if you are traveling domestically and find yourself with time on your hands at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in coming days, you can check out a strong survey exhibition of Atlanta art that has received positive response from travelers this year.

Curated by Hope Cohn, “E-Merge: Contemporary Atlanta Artists,” in the T-Gate Gallery, features some of the metro area’s top visual talent, including Kevin Cole, Bethany Collins, Brian Dettmer, Craig Drennen, Gyun Hur (who will have a solo show opening at Get This gallery on Jan. 4), Kyoungmin Park and Michael Reese. You can scan QR codes on the text panels and go to the artists’ web sites to find out more about them.

Comprising 60 works of sculpture, painting, photography, video and installation-based works, “E-Merge” has just been extended through April. 404-382-2478, www.emergeatl.com. HOWARD POUSNER
