ATLANTA – The energy levels were high as the Swan Coach House Gallery unveiled a fantastic new exhibit featuring dazzling creations by young, contemporary artists from the Atlanta area. “All That Glitters”, opening on March 13, 2008, sponsored by Dorsey Alston Realtors, uses as the common thread connecting the creations either glitter, sequins or beads. Marianne Lambert, curator for the gallery, has noticed this particular trend occurring among southern artists and has done a wonderful job of gathering the best talent in the region to organize this show.
Jody Abstance, President of show sponsor Dorsey Alston Realtors, was thrilled to greet a wide array of guests to admire the unusual, unique and beautiful creations in the exhibit, which ranged from paintings to decorative boxes and soft figure sculptures. All of the artists use glitter in amazingly different ways to illustrate their artistic expression.
The festive atmosphere was enjoyed by all on Thursday night, and the Swan Coach House Gallery hopes that many other Atlantans and visitors will have the chance to view this captivating exhibition, which runs through April 26, 2008. The participating artists are Amalia Amaki, Sarah Emerson, Claire Joyce, Cecilia Kane, Joni Mabe, Eric Mack, Judy Parady Wendy Phillips and Jim Waters. To view examples of their work, please visit the Swan Coach House web site at www.swancoachhouse.com. The Swan Coach House is administered and supported by the Forward Arts Foundation which supports the visual arts community in Atlanta.
The gallery is located at 3130 Slaton Drive, N.W., Atlanta, Georgia 30305, and is open Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
