the first time, Atlanta’s premier and emerging gallery spaces
are joining forces to present Atlanta’s first Atlanta Gallery
WEEK! After identifying the need for a city-wide mechanism for
promoting Atlanta’s modern and contemporary galleries and
for reaching new audiences, 13 commercial galleries have banded
together to present and promote the importance of Atlanta’s
galleries to the city’s arts ecology.
The primary goal of the ATLANTA GALLERY WEEK is to jump-start,
in earnest, wide-spread collecting of contemporary art in Atlanta.
Atlanta’s galleries are integral to the livelihoods of hundreds
of visual artists. We hope to spark interest in a city-wide initiative
to educate young professionals and retirees, alike, about art collecting
and how such collecting practices can enrich the Atlanta’s
cultural community as a whole.
