Is artistic ability passed down through bloodlines?
Art lovers can see for themselves on June 14 when two of Georgia’s best-known contemporary artists, Thomas Arvid and Steve Penley, are paired in a Father’s Day-themed exhibition with their sons at Marietta’s DK Gallery.
In the one-day show titled “Like Father Like Son,” Marietta resident Arvid, billed as “America’s preeminent painter of wine,” will show alongside sons Jimmy, 13, and Christopher, 11.
Penley, the Carrollton-based Pop-inspired painter of American iconography, will be exhibited with his son Lyall, 11.
Located on the Marietta Square, DK Gallery promises special kid-friendly foods and art activities for children during the 2-5 p.m. event.
Free. 25 W. Park Square, Marietta. 770-427-5377, www.dkgallery.us.
Meanwhile, Arvid plans another gallery appearance this month. He will unveil a new edition, “Just in Case,” at historic Roswell’s Vinings Gallery, 6-9 p.m. June 20 and 21. 10 Elizabeth Way, Roswell. To share talk and a glass of wine with the artist, RSVP via 770-299-1122, viningsgallery.com.
