Born more than two decades apart, Atlanta artists Steve Penley and Hutton Snellings are teaming up for Collide, a joint exhibition in the gallery above Onward Reserve in Buckhead. Fans of their work may find the match odd; Penley, the “unofficial artist in residence” for Coca-Cola, paints American iconography (the American flag, Teddy Roosevelt), while 26-year-old Snellings produces ethereal abstracts. In the studio, though, sarcastic banter colors their conversation, and their 10 collaborative canvases—boundary-breaking combinations of each of their preferred methods and hues—are just as much fun. March 20 to 22, $7,000–$10,000 per 48-by-48-inch piece
