On Thursday, April 21st, the Swan Coach House Gallery and the Forward Arts Foundation opens the exhibition, The Price is Right: Art Under $1000.
Although the economy is slowly recovering, buyers are still cautious in their spending. In response, the gallery is once again presenting our popular show from last year, The Price is Right: Art Under $1000. “Over the past year, I spent a great deal of time searching for artists who are making interesting work, but who are not necessarily well-known.” says Marianne Lambert, curator. “Although there is work by many established artists in the show, it also includes wonderful work by less familiar artists, some of whom are still in art school.”
The gallery is installed “salon style” with an amazing diversity of paintings, drawings, photography, prints, and three-dimensional objects by 40 Southern artists. While the quality of the work is very good, so are the prices. It is a win-win exhibition in that the prices are right for the buyer, and it is hoped the sales–even in this difficult economy–will be good for the artists. At the very least, this is an opportunity to enjoy perusing a broad range of art created by talented artists working here in the South.
Participating artists are:
Teresa Bramlette Reeves
Robert Sparrow Jones
Michelle R Cornelison
Katie Bowman Walker
Mary Beth Woiccak
April 21 – June 4, 2011.
The Swan Coach House is administered by The Forward Arts Foundation which supports the visual arts community in Atlanta. This exhibition is sponsored by Margaretta Johnson Taylor.
