Atlanta isn't usually known around the country for its art galleries. Theater and fine dining we've got covered, but art tends to get left out of the talk about us in other towns. But ATLart, this year's citywide annual event presented by the Atlanta Gallery Association, is working to change that.
The centerpiece of the three-week celebration is ARThouse, a museum-style exhibition showcasing many of Atlanta's art galleries. The house where it's being held is a work of art itself: 541 West Paces Ferry, otherwise known as the Pink Palace, an Italian Baroque-style home not far from the Governor's mansion, is 16,000 square feet of luxury. From the 18th century English tapestry to the exposed brick work and original incinerator fixtures of the expansive basement, just touring the house would be worth the admission price.
