Every Tuesday, we give you our top picks for the week, from installations and sculptures to paintings, drawings, street art, photography, videos and more.

New

Donna Mintz: Ex Astris. The artist and writer returns, in her words, to an “abiding exploration of time, place and memory.” She pairs gold leaf with otherwise mundane materials using the idea of the reliquary, a container/shrine in which sacred relics are kept. At Sandler Hudson Gallery through May 4. The opening reception begins at 7 p.m. Friday, March 29.

Street art. Nashville-based muralist Kevin Bongang‘s Love, Live . . . Life at 1776 wraps around a corner at a seven-story apartment building — 1776 Peachtree St. NW — in south Buckhead. Read more about the mural and the SCAD Atlanta grad in our weekly column.
