Dear Friends,

Welcome to the blog for the Marcia Wood Gallery. This new blog is our way of staying in touch with you in a more personal manner than we can do on our website (though we hope you’ll visit it, too). Since the blog is new, it will surely evolve. For now, we’ve got updates on what our artists have been doing—we’re posting new information weekly—and what we’re doing as a gallery in terms of fairs and travel. Eventually we hope to include interviews with our artists, and some first-person pieces, maybe even special projects, by our artists and gallery friends.


If you’re going to be in New York at the end of the month, come by and say Hey. We’ll be at the Pulse Fair, booth #I-12.

Philip Carpenter

After Durer, 2007, Colored Pencils on Paper, 24 x 20

Recent New's on Philip Carpenter

Philip Carpenter’s artwork and biography are included in the online artist registry sponsored by Georgia Council for the Arts and the Southern Arts Federation.

He exhibited work in “Innovations: New Work by Contemporary Georgia Artists”, the inaugural exhibition at Gallery Walk at Terminus, October 24, 2007-January 19, 2008.

He exhibited drawings in “Manipulating the Ordinary” at Swan Coach House Gallery, August 9-September 22, 2007.

In her review in the Atlanta Journal Constitution (September 2, 2007) Debra Wolf wrote, “ On the lighter side, Philip Carpenter skillfully juxtaposes pop culture icons and classical paintings. Mickey Mouse takes on the Renaissance in “Art in America”, while “After Durer” stars Bugs Bunny pointing a know-it-all finger at Albrecht Durer’s famous hare.”

In her review in Creative Loafing (August 16-22, 2007) Felicia Feaster wrote, “Along with Philip Carpenter’s wonderfully wise-ass drawings of pop culture kiddie toys and cartoons juxtaposed with classical paintings, this quartet in particular shows how our banal surroundings can allow for both soul-destroying superficiality and spiritual striving.”

Philip gave a gallery talk for “Drawn in Georgia: Works on Paper from the Collection” at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia at Suntrust Plaza (November 2, 2006-January 20, 2007).
