35 Galleries in 12 hours Part 3: South of Pharr, Peachtree Hills, Bennett Street

This is going to take a few more posts. They started with "Part 1: Dogs, Birds, and a Wild Hare" and "Part 2 Buckhead Galleries." This was the Atlanta Gallery Association Art Sun-up to Sundown – Citywide Art Walk Saturday, August 21, 2010 10 am – 10 pm.

I was getting warmed up. Grandview is a tiny street in Buckhead that has more than it's share if lifestyle stores crammed into little houses. The buffer zone between commercial and residential in south Buckhead is an interesting subject for another day.

Grandview is home to the Atlanta Artists Center & Gallery "Founded in 1954 ... the oldest continuing artists organization in the area. With over 450 members from 10 metro Atlanta counties, we’ve become the largest all volunteer, non-profit (501c3) fine art organization in the Southeast." Folks were receiving art for their AAC 7th Annual National Show - 2010.

Here is Charles Woodbery out front who was getting the job done.

Inside, owner / artist Charles Reinike had just completed this commission, a charming anniversary present. I wish you could see it up close.

Almost next door is the stunning TEW Galleries which is not just an art gallery but a stunningly beautiful space. I met Timothy Tew himself. Here is the TEW Galleries Facebook Page.

The David Gallery/Painting Exchange matched painting to umbrella, a great effect.

Whew, I'm not even halfway done.

Next time you visit ADAC don't miss this stunning mosaic at the Peachtree Hills Rec Center. Anyone know the artist?


I blogged about Ms. Surlin's mosaic at the Kirkwood fire station. This one is watery too.
