Coffeeshop Art

If you’re looking for an excuse to try out the new Inmanm Park location of Inman Perk Coffee, here’s one for you:

Our Inman Park location welcomes “Petals” — an exhibit of floral photography shot locally and abroad by Atlanta photographer Sabrina Sexton.
Join us for a free reception to view the exhibit and meet the photographer on Saturday, April 22, from 7 to 10 p.m. “Petals” will be on display through May 13, 2006.
“Petals” is sponsored by Sugar7, who will donate 7% of every print and notecard sale to a non-profit organization.

Ms. Sexton is a local blogger and left this message for us (with some editing, if that’s okay)

I’m having a reception for the opening of my photography show at Inman Perk Coffee in Inman Park this Saturday (4/22) from 7 to 10 p.m. My father recently passed away, and his own photography was a huge inspiration to me growing up. I’m dedicating the show to my dad and will also have some of his photos on display during the reception… I’m really looking forward to sharing my dad’s photos with everyone. They’re mostly black and whites from his time in Korea in the 70s. My photos are flowers shot in Georgia, Hawaii, Beijing, and Hong Kong. Free desserts and free coffee too. “Petals” will be on display through May 13.

The next weekend, Octane Coffee is having a Calligraphiti show that seems pretty cool. I tell you, featuring local artists is one of my favorite parts of local coffee shops. It’s a great advantage they have over more national chains (though, it’s unclear to me why local neighborhood Starbuck’s don’t display some local art. Or do they and I just haven’t been in a while?).

    I’ve seen art hanging in the Starbucks on Cascade Rd. (near 285). It’s been a while since I’ve been there, though, so I don’t know if they still do that.

    I’ve also seen art hanging in the Starbucks near Lake Lucern off Hwy 78 in Lilburn.
