An artist gallery opening near the Beltline will showcase artists who tell compelling stories through their work.
Atlanta artist Laura Adams plans to open Brickworks Gallery, located on Greenwood Avenue in Virginia-Highland, on October 5.
The new art venue is in the B Mifflin Hood Brick Co. building, a refurbished historic, industrial-era building, according to a news release about the gallery’s opening. It is 5-minute walk north on the Beltline from Ponce City Market and a 5-minute walk down the Beltline from the south-east corner of Piedmont Park.
Adams has shown her work in galleries and exhibitions for 25 years. She has now chosen artists she has met throughout the years and brought them together at Brickworks Gallery.
“The artists come from all walks of life, but they have this trait in common: their work is a finely crafted expression of their lives and life experiences,” the news release says.
The first show in the gallery will be a collection of photographs by Atlanta photographer Ben Helton called “Messiah.” Helton’s work has been featured in The Atlantic, The Eye of Photography and Inspired Eye as well as other publications, according to ArtsATL.
“I spent 4 or 5 months documenting a small, store front church in Senoia, GA,” Helton wrote on his Facebook page about “Messiah.”
Opening night for the show is October 5, and Helton will do an artist’s talk on October 22. The show runs through October 31. For more information, click here.
