ATLart[09] kicks off Thursday, Jan. 22

Pull on your fancy pants people, it's time for ATLart[09], the Atlanta Gallery Association's 18-day visual arts extravaganza full of champagne wishes and caviar dreams. Like other citywide cultural blowouts that strive to "[expand] the reputation of Atlanta as a cultural capital," various galleries around town will wear the ATLart[09] badge through Feb. 8.

One of ATLart[09]'s signature events is its annual ARThouse, a mansion, nay palace, transformed by high-end art into a "museum-style" experience (because museums are too artsy). This year's ARThouse takes place at 514 W. Paces Ferry, aka the Pink Palace, in Buckhead and features a Frederick Hart sculpture garden.

Tomorrow night's opening gala isn't for the faint of wallet (tickets run $275/person or $500/couple), but the ARThouse will open its doors to the rest of us Fri., Jan. 23 for a more reasonable fee ($12-$22). The three-week ATLart[09] culminates with the annual ART PAPERS art auction Sat., Feb. 7.
