An MFA candidate at UTSA, New Orleans native John Dalton Atkins employs found and repurposed objects to build mixed-media works suggesting eccentric Southern narratives. Inspired by “a global community of workers, makers, fixers, and backyard philosophers,” his MFA thesis exhibition “Down Home” comprises an immersive installation featuring large-scale kinetic sculpture, “clusters of junk commingled with dust and hair and dirt … and a rattling wheelbarrow of beer bottles.” Adding to the rural ambience, DJ Jacob Pierce (of KSYM’s “Close Up the Honky Tonks”) will be on hand spinning “the best in alt-country, classic country, folk and cosmic American music.” Following the First Friday reception, "Down Home" remains on view by appointment through May 26.
