There’s been grace, color, popstars and cokeheads at gay-owned Kai Lin Art in Midtown. Now comes the work of four local contemporary artists who go masculine, bold and dynamic.

That’s how gallery owner Yu-Kai Lin (top photo, right) describes his ninth show, “afterglow,” which opened on Friday with a crowded reception at the gallery. The exhibit, which runs through June 3, includes the work of Kent Knowles, Wyatt Graff, Adam Wellborn and Fred Gear.

image“The show is a masculine show with bold, dynamic art. Lots of color and vibrant movement,” Lin says in an interview previewing the exhibit.

The evening, which offered a quite popular open bar, also featured the Deep House and Lounge beats of DJ Sabo and a video installation from students at the Savannah College of Art & Design-Atlanta.

Past exhibits at Kai Lin Art have included “Grace | Lush. Ethereal. Color” and “Popstars & Cokeheads.”
