#8 – SCAD – Matthew Blackwell and Gregory Eltringham: "Horsepower"

The SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design)¬†Atlanta exhibitions department is currently presenting “Horsepower”, a two-person painting exhibition by Spring 2009 Visiting Artist Matt Blackwell and SCAD Savannah painting professor Gregory Eltringham. The works in the exhibition present “a distinctive homage to the energy of horsepower.”

For you artsy folks, the SCAD website describes the exhibition: “Blackwell’s expressionistically-painted cruiser cars exude a cool, iconic power as well as a nostalgic semblance of the American past, while Eltringham’s playful portraits utilize horse imagery to illustrate a range of human relationships.” For us laypeople: a really cool look at horsepower, including a painting of a topless couple riding hobbyhorses. Seriously.

The exhibit continues through Friday, February 26, 9 AM – 6 PM.
