January 26 through February 6, 2005
Promoting Visual Arts in Atlanta
Last year, the Atlanta Gallery Association formed with the goal of expanding the reputation of Atlanta as the Cultural Capital of the South and hosted its first major event, ATLart, which featured nine events spanning 16 days in 29 galleries. January 2005 will bring the second installation in what is now the city’s most anticipated annual art event. For ATLart, AGA will include even more innovative events, reaching a broader audience and making art more accessible and enjoyable.
Creative Loafing Named ATLart “Best Art Trend” saying: “This year, members of the Atlanta Gallery Association (AGA) organized a galvanizing event, ATLart, dedicated to promoting collaboratively staged lectures, tours and art openings to up the Atlanta profile on a national level.”
ATLart takes place in Museums, Galleries and Alternative Art Spaces throughout Atlanta.
