Atlanta Fairs


Atlanta metro area sees scores of art fairs annually, most of the easels-around-the-square variety. A more recent event was produced by the Atlanta Gallery Association, called ATLart(04) and (05). Like the Atlanta Celebrates Photography event, this was more a series of networked events taking place at individual venues than a proper fair in a single location. Also many of Atlanta's local Neighborhoods try to unite their neighborhood in local chili cook-offs, holiday events, and craft fairs featuring the work of many local artists and crafters. Please take time to check out the Atlanta Art Calendar to find out about different Fairs and Happenings in and around Atlanta.

They repeated the event in early '05. They have promised an even bigger event for thier '06 event. Please take a look at thier site if interested in attending or more details.

ART EXPO ATLANTA
A corporate art experience of a very high (or low) order, took place in Atlanta in September of '05. This observer found it all a little scary -- more about techniques of reproduction than processes of creation.
