Penultimate [pi-nuhl-tuh-mit] adjective,
next to the last: the penultimate exhibition at 378 Gallery
378 Gallery presents for January 2023 exhibition, Penultimate, beginning Saturday,
January 7, running through Saturday, January 28, 2023. There will be an opening event
featuring Dance Party featuring DJ Saasha Foo in the Lo Gallery at 378 Gallery on
Saturday, January 6 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Penultimate presents the work of four artists,
Brannon Gullatt, Gibbs Hasty, Rosser Shymanski, and Jim Wakeman.
Brannon Gullatt says about his work, “Things that have always inspired my creativity
are Barbie, Catholicism, and atomic paranoia. Growing up on a farm in a religious
household I had to play with my sister’s dolls in secret, so Barbie always had a
forbidden frisson. Reading about miraculous events of Catholic Saints amazed me,
though discussions about them were discouraged in my Protestant family. As a result, I
mashed my secret obsessions together along with a dose of mid-century atomic pop to
become the person I am today.”
Gibbs Hasty presents work at Penultimate from a vast collection of paintings that he
has completed in the past few years. He attended the School of Fine Arts at
Fontainebleau, France, and completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Atlanta
College of Art. Gibbs has held many positions throughout the years, but his most
cherished memories are from his tenure at the Art Institute of Atlanta where he was an
instructor for 21 years.
Rosser Shymanski is an Atlanta artist specializing in serendipity while using enamel
paint on glass. His long history as a creative performer adds a touch of whimsy and
color to his paintings, giving the illusion of a micro/macro universe unique to each piece.
Jim Wakeman says about his work, “The kinds of things that always had an impact on
me are old TV westerns, 1950s science fiction, pop art, and pop culture. I like to take a
surrealistic approach to my work that is reminiscent of that moment when you wake up
and piece together the bizarre dream you just had. A lot of my stuff is influenced by
dreams and stuff I recall from my childhood.” He is a native of Schenectady, NY. After
earning his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the State University of New York at Albany,
he moved to the Atlanta area. He enjoys working in large format figurative oil paintings
and is intrigued by the juxtaposition of elements and time periods.
The January exhibition, Penultimate, at 378 Gallery can be viewed during the regular
gallery hours of Fridays and Saturdays in January from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and by
appointment by calling gallery director Tom Zarrilli at 404-530 9277.
378 Gallery will be closing permanently at the end of February 2023. The Gallery staff
has enjoyed presenting the local arts community with events featuring art, music, and
performance throughout the past four years and extends deep gratitude to all who have
enjoyed this space during that time. It was fantastic while it existed!
