The Arts in Atlanta site:

The Arts In Atlanta
This site is a major network of links to the inner world of the arts in Atlanta run by Hilary King. The site has a similar subdivision of networks that this site has. However, her site is much more elaborate. The network of links points to every aspect of artistic diversity within the metro area. These areas include, Art Centers, Educational Facilities dealing with the arts, and Art Festivals.

The purpose of reviewing the critics of Atlanta is to understand their style and interests within the main network of galleries that operate within Atlanta. These critics represent a strong foundation for getting the word out on outstanding local artists or visiting international artists. Since this collection of reviews of shows is small so far the point is to see how they relate to the network of artists that live and operate here in Atlanta.

Artists' Books, 'Zines and Comics

Related publications that cover art activity and include artwork includes "'zines," the limited edition photocopied compilations associated with the punk rock music scene. A good selection of these can be found at Stickfigure Distribution (est. 1992), open only on Saturdays.
Comic books and graphic novels have become an increasingly important art medium. Some of these small press products can be found at Criminal Records in Little Five Points. An active publisher of small "craft comics" is Top Shelf Productions in Marietta.
