Best Gallery for Opening-night Parties 

Atlanta Contemporary Art Center

535 Means St.

For chichi, no one could top Fay Gold's coming out party in her new space last summer (with gorgeous carved ice martini bar and sushi). But on non-profit art space manage a consistently high energy when it comes to openings. The 2001 Biennial at the Contemporary was celebrated with live music and performance art, and the annual Artparty is a monumental blast-off for the center's first fall show. Three others merit mention: Eyedrum, which features so many local artists, there's always a crowd opening night; ShedSpace, which gets the curiosity vote, luring gallery goers into backyard sheds; and the annual Erotica show, which plays a one-night stand to great throngs of people.
