Welcome To Atlanta: Charles H. Nelson, A Retrospective Opening Reception and Artist Talk

Welcome To Atlanta: Charles H. Nelson, A Retrospective Opening Reception and Artist Talk

Join Hammonds House Museum on June 15 for the opening of Welcome To Atlanta: Charles H. Nelson, A Retrospective", curated by Fahamu Pecou. Charles Huntley Nelson was the perfect storm. An artist’s artist, the scholar’s scholar, and the trickster’s trickster. His work blended genres effortlessly from painting and drawing to performance art and video. This exhibition represents a small percentage of Nelson's art, but in mining his dynamic corpus of work one discovers the impact of Charles Nelson, particularly in the works of contemporary Atlanta-based artists today.

This retrospective is also a significant mark in the history of the Hammonds House Museum, which initially brought Charles to Atlanta where he was the first Seagram’s Artist-in-Residence in 1995-1996. Welcome to Atlanta is a snapshot of the artist that also captures the spirit of the city that helped shape his vision – a space of reinvention, imagination, and collaboration
