Michi Meko’s triptych “The Enlightenment of Gold Naps” (2015) is part of his exhibit, “Pursuit: Almost Drowned,” opening Saturday at Alan Avery Art Company.

Things are hot all over, but especially so for Michi Meko.

The Atlanta artist has a one-man show opening Saturday at Alan Avery Art Company, “Pursuit: Almost Drowned.”

Michi Meko's "The Standard" (drawing, acrylic, gold leaf) will be on view in the High Museum of Art's "Sprawl" exhibit.

Michi Meko’s “The Standard” (drawing, acrylic, gold leaf) will be on view in the High Museum of Art’s “Sprawl” exhibit.

And Meko’s first work purchased by the High Museum of Art will go on view as part of the exhibition “Sprawl: Drawing Outside the Lines,” opening July 18 at the museum. The sprawling, 115-work show is a sequel to the High’s popular 2013 exhibit of Atlanta-based artists “Drawing Inside the Perimeter.” (More info: www.high.org.)

“Pursuit: Almost Drowned” probes stereotypes and how “many of these false assumptions have, in fact, become (Meko’s) very salvation,” according to Avery.

Through Aug. 8. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesdays-Fridays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays. 315 E. Paces Ferry Road, Atlanta. 404-237-0370, www.alanaveryartcompany.com.
