This month, Atlanta artist Holly Irwin presents a new series of paintings and works on paper inspired by Coco Chanel. The daughter of a fashion illustrator, Irwin interprets the designer’s trademark elements—ropes of pearls, tweed suits, little black dresses—using her signature dreamy brushstrokes. The solo show, Mademoiselle, is hosted by DK Gallery, a contemporary art gallery located in an 1800s storefront on historic Marietta Square. An anchor of the city’s popular Art Walks, DK has attracted a growing following (outside and inside the Perimeter) with monthly themed shows inspired by featured artists, as well as multimedia work by a stable of more than 35 established and emerging artists. November 6 to 28, 25 West Park Square, Marietta.
