Atlanta is full of artists and art lovers.
This week’s Best of Atlanta poll found out what art gallery is your go-to for your cultural and creative fix.
IDEA Gallery, short for Innovate-Design-Exhibit-Art, won the No. 1 spot by write-in nomination. Serving as an art inubator, art gallery and non-profit organization, they work to create the opportunity for local artists to practice their craft and make a living from their artwork. The community is showing their appreciation by putting IDEA Gallery in first place.
Coming in second place, dk Gallery has become a destination for art lovers and art discoverers alike. The gallery on Marietta Square represents local and national established artists with contemporary fine art pieces that bring joy and excitement to the space.
As your third place winner, the Ann Jackson Gallery is a family owned business located in historic Roswell. The gallery carries a variety of mediums including oils, acrylics, works on paper, sculpture and glass. Fun fact: They are one of only 30 galleries worldwide licensed to represent The Art of Dr. Seuss Collection.
If you have the time to shop around, then you’ll want to feast your eyes at our other official nomineees: ZuCot Gallery (Intown), Eyedrum Art & Music Gallery (Intown), HATHAWAY Contemporary Gallery (Intown), Westside Cultural Arts Center (Intown), The LONA Gallery (Gwinnett), Woodruff Arts Center (Intown) and Dalton Gallery at Agnes Scott College (DeKalb).
Many of Atlanta’s best art pieces are found outside of the walls of an art gallery, i.e. in the open air displays of Atlanta’s best murals you didn't know existed.
