Ally White, MFA '16, Solo Show in Atlanta

Ally White presents her first Atlanta solo show, No Worries — an exhibition of acrylic and wool paintings taking place at Eyedrum Art & Music Gallery September 17th thru October 8th. These works depict day-dreaming figures and the lush multicolored world they live in. Investigating contrasting themes of happiness, anxiety, loneliness and self-comfort, each piece works to balance and cope through the use of color, humor and play. 

White grew up in Dallas, GA and received her BFA in painting from the University of Georgia in 2013. Since graduating, her work has been exhibited in multiple group shows in and around Atlanta, including the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, ATHICA, and Mint Gallery. Her first solo exhibition was with Trailer Park Proyects in San Juan, Puerto Rico in 2014. White was featured on the cover of New American Paintings #106, and was selected as a “Jury Picks” for 100 Painters of Tomorrow, a publication produced by Beers Contemporary in London.
