Gather Atlanta

"What is Gather Atlanta?" is a question I get a lot. The long version is at Gather Atlanta's website, and the short version follows. It's the only place that you can come to see the panel discussion "Art and the Public Sphere" featuring local artist Fahamu Peacou, graffiti mainstay HENSE, Laurie Stallings of GloAtl (the only thing to ever make me care about dance at all), and public arts supervisor Dorian McDuffie. It's also the event to attend to meet the people involved with local galleries like Beep Beep, Youngblood, and Eyedrum, other creative spaces like Plaza Theater, Relapse Theater and B- Complex, and other arts initiatives like Living Walls, Dashboard Co-op, and Dance Truck.

Gather Atlanta is this Saturday, July 31st from 6pm-10pm at Trees Atlanta in Reynoldstown. The panel discussion will begin at 6:30 and general networking will continue from 8-10.

New Tees For Youngblood and MINT

Two local galleries have recently released new tee shirts. Emily Maxwell and Stenvik Mostrom, two of my favorite Atlanta artists, have created images for MINT Gallery and Youngblood Gallery respectively.
