VIP Artist Preview + Dinner with Khalilah Birdsong
From an entertainment executive for more than 15 years for Tyler Perry to learning to be a painter, Khalilah has tapped into a creative gift that was buried inside her to create a new profession. Collectors of her work include many high-profile collectors such as President Barack Obama.
Guests at Art Over Dinner with Khalilah Birdsong will not only be treated to a farm fresh meal under the stars at The Art Farm, but will also be given a VIP Preview of her latest works, which will be featured in a solo show at Hathaway Contemporary beginning November 11th.
Sunday, October 22nd
The scale and evidence of physicality of Khalilah’s paintings echo Alfred Leslie, Joan Mitchell, Jean Riopelle and the late abstract paintings of Gerhard Richter. She differs from many of these early abstract painters in that while their art depicts references to nature and a looser, freer gesture, she combines physicality with a finely-calibrated balance in her work. This speaks to her own personal gestalt, rather than any movement or school of painting defined by social milieu or a specific time.
Sponsored by Lexus, Art Over Dinner is a series of intimate gatherings with artists and the organizations that support their work. We collaborate with the chefs at HomespunATL and local farmers to bring a seasonal meal that showcases winemakers and brewers, and invite our guest artists to spark the conversation at one long farm table on the outdoor deck of The Art Farm at Serenbe.
Art Farm at Serenbe is a vibrant artist complex that provides a place for engagement and inspiration. It serves as Serenbe’s central place for artists, the arts and culture. This complex is deeply rooted in process, education and creating multiple platforms for creativity. Artists, practitioners and researchers come here to deepen their practice and broaden their creative connections.
