"Coeducation", a joint exhibit from couple Chelsea Raflo and Chris Hamersly, loosely explores the dynamics of living and learning in close contact. The artists describe the process of creating the work for this exhibit as "a study in cooperation and collaboration as well as the simplicity of coexistence. Through working together, we found ourselves learning from each other, either through direct communication or just by way of... proximity and observation."
Raflo, an Atlanta native, graduated from Kenyon College in 2008 with a B.A. in studio art and currently works at Riot Atlanta, a creative post-production studio. She utilizes a variety of mediums in her work but for this exhibit, focuses on drawing and painting. Her work reflects an interest in the junction of the verbal and visual worlds. She has most recently exhibited in the MOCA GA "Movers and Shakers" group show and in a solo exhibit at Carroll Street Cafe. Her animation work has been featured on the IFC Sundance Network. More info can be found on her website (www.chelsearaflo.com).
Hamersly studied photography at Georgia State University and currently works as a screen printer at Danger Press. He works primarily in pen and ink. Past exhibitions include a solo exhibit at San Francisco Coffee Roasters and group shows at 11:11 Teahouse, MINT and MJQ.
