Pam Longobardi is not only an artist. She's an environmentalist and activist who has traveled the world exploring oceans. Lombardi is a Distinguished Professor of art at Georgia State University and has won numerous awards for her work, which has been on display in several countries around the globe.

Plastic in oceans is central to her work, and she joined "City Lights" host Lois Reitzes to discuss her exhibit "Reworlding," which is on view now at Hathaway Gallery through Sept. 16.

Mother's Day is Sunday, and we thought it would be fun to invite in a mother and daughter who both work in the arts for a conversation.

We fell immediately upon Alice Lovelace and Theresa Davis. Lovelace is a writer and activist who moved to Atlanta in the 1970s and helped found a number of organizations, including the Arts Exchange. Davis, her daughter, is a teacher, poet and organizer who can be found hosting poetry slams around the city.

Art is still going up on the walls of the airplane hangar-like space of the Notch8 Gallery. Artist Tiffany Charesse watches, smiling and satisfied, as her work is hung. One of those pieces is of a modern dancer —tank top, jeans and ballet flats rendered in delicate pastels. The dancer’s knees are bent, he is up on his toes with his arms outstretched. This image repeats in a pattern that stretches all around the picture — the dancer holding hands with himself over and over.
