ABOUT JESSICA

Jessica Caldas is an Atlanta based artist, advocate, and activist. Her work deals primarily with connecting personal and community narratives to larger themes and social issues. Caldas has participated in numerous emerging artist residencies, including the Atlanta Printmakers Studio in 2011, MINT Gallery's Leap Year Program from 2012-2013, and WonderRoot’s 2013-2014 Walthall Fellowship. Caldas was named Creative Loafing's Best of ATL Artist for 2016 and 2015, received the City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs Emerging Artist Award in Visual Arts for 2014, and was a finalist for the Forward Arts Foundation's Emerging Artist Award in 2014. She has shown work nationally, internationally, and throughout the city of Atlanta at various galleries and through several public art programs. Her work has been featured at Burnaway, ArtsAtl, Creative Loafing Atlanta, Atlanta Magazine, Simply Buckhead, and more.

Prior to working full time as an artist, Caldas worked with the Atlanta based non-profit, Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation, coordinating their Domestic Violence and Guardian ad Litem programs and continues to volunteer for the foundation. For several years she was also the volunteer director of Hollaback! Atlanta, the local chapter of an international movement focused on fighting against the harassment and assault of women and the LGTBQI community in public spaces.

In her advocacy work, Caldas spends time lobbying for policy at the local level and spent time with the YWCA Georgia Women's Policy Institute at the 2016 general assembly to assure the passage of the Rape Kit Bill and in 2017 to stop HB 51, a bill that would have harmed the safety of sexual assault survivors on college campuses.

Caldas is currently pursuing her Masters of Fine Arts degree at Georgia State University and received her BFA in printmaking from the University of Georgia in 2012. She lives in Atlanta, GA.

COMPENDIA by Jason Kofke and Mike Germon

 
 
 
 

 
 

Please join us for Compendia, an installation of new and existing work by Atlanta-based artists Jason Kofke and Mike Germon. Kofke and Germon are both known for weaving past, present, and future into revaluations of our place within history, and the mythologies that we rely on to provide meaning in an increasingly fragile world. Together for the first time, these two artists offer a glimpse into the future, by way of the past.

Compendia is the second of three projects in a year long partnership with CenterForm. View our inaugural project, Echolalia by Tori Tinsley, HERE.

Kofke is a recipient of a 2015 ELEVATE (Atlanta) Award, a 2011 Artadia Grant and a 2009 Idea Capital Grant. He has been awarded residencies at...

ABOUT MIKE

Atlanta native Mike Germon’s collages look to have been found in an old drawer in which they did not belong. His pieces include elements that reference scientific themes ranging from astronomy and biology to theoretical physics while addressing topics of mythology, science fiction, and magic.

Having earned his BFA in Art (digital media) from The University of Georgia in 2005, Germon has since worked as a props person in the film industry while...
