Event Description

Solo Exhibition by Vivian Liddell. Closing reception and Artist Talk, Saturday, August 5th, 7-9 PM. 

In the Hall of the Mountain King, a solo exhibition of sculptures, monotypes, and mixed-media paintings by Vivian Liddell, uses Edvard Grieg’s musical composition for the Henrik Ibsen play Peer Gynt as a starting structure. Liddell explores her family dynamics and connections to Danish folklore, as they relate to patriarchy, power, religion, and the American South. The show includes an audio accompaniment.

From ArtsATL:

On display at Eyedrum through August 5, Vivian Liddell's “In the Hall of the Mountain King” may be the simplest, cutest, most subversively complicated exhibition about power and gender in the American South that you’ll see this season.

Whether our work is created with gentle nuances or bold, aggressive, to the point visuals, our creations are meant to be seen.

Shambhala Meditation Center, a place for contemplation presents a visualization of our thoughts.
