Artifact, a studio at 1080-B Duncan Ave., is presenting a new exhibition by alumni members Shane Darwent and Luke Padgett. The "Alumni" show is scheduled 5-8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 20.

After helping to start the studio and show space in the fall of 2011, Darwent and Padgett left Artifact after a year to pursue other ventures. They since have returned to Chattanooga and are presenting the past year's gleanings for this exhibition.

Darwent will show a portion of his traveling solo exhibition, "Coming Soon," which explores the post-recession, American landscape through photography, painting, sculpture and found-object installation.

Padgett, who has been an active freelance filmmaker since leaving Artifact, will be screening a rotating selection of recent works.

Acoustic music by traveling and local musicians will follow. Admission is free.
