Folk art aficionados, devotees, and R.E.M. fans alike should make plans to attend the Georgia Museum of Art’s upcoming exhibition “Lord Love You, Works by R.A. Miller from the Mullis Collection,” which opens Saturday, August 8th, at the Lyndon House Arts Center (293 Hoyt St.).
Reuben A. “R.A.” Miller, whose property was the setting for the Jim Herbert-directed film “Left of Reckoning” (featured on R.E.M. Succumbs and the IRS best-of collection When The Light Is Mine), was a folk or “outsider” artist who lived in Rabbittown near Gainesville, Georgia. Miller was noted for his whirligigs and figurative cutouts, made from sheet metal and tin.
Watch “Left of Reckoning” at HQTV (available on page 2 of the menu).
