While many of us struggle to recover from our holiday spending orgies -- those four-digit credit card bills staring us in the face -- temptation comes a-calling with the year's biggest art sale. The annual body-packin', checkbook-wavin' madhouse known as the ART PAPERS ART AUCTION is probably the closest thing Atlanta has to an art fair's frenzied buying and scene-making. For big spenders, there is a collectors' preview Fri., FEB. 2. Regular folk can attend the main event Sat., FEB. 3, with works by more than 400 artists, food by Trois, Lobby, Piebar and others, and attitude by You. $20-$75. Fri., 7-9 p.m.; Sat., 7-10 p.m. Mason Murer Fine Art, 199 Armour Drive. 404-588-1837, ext. 19. www.artpapers.org.
