After 17 years in Atlanta, the highly regarded contemporary art gallery Solomon Projects is closing the doors to its Monroe Drive space. Gallery director Alexandra Sachs says that gallery owner Nancy Solomon will be transitioning to “project based collaborations with gallery artists outside the Monroe space. One of the first projects will be with Sarah Hobbs beginning January 12. She will be creating monthly installations in a storage locker near here over the course of the year.” During Hobbs’ storage locker show, gallery goers will be able to enter into a space that Sachs calls a physical manifestation of photographer Hobbs psychology-laden images of obsessive, anxiety filled states.

During its tenure, the Monroe space, revamped in 2001 by Bldgs. architects David Yocum and Brian Bell, has exhibited a distinguished array of both national artists such as Ridley Howard, Carter Kustera, David Humphrey and Douglas Weathersby and local artists including Joe Peragine, Sarah Hobbs, Scott Ingram, Radcliffe Bailey and Nancy Floyd—all of whom received significant solo exhibitions at Solomon Projects. Solomon received a bachelor of arts degree in art history from Barnard College in New York City. In 1998 Solomon was awarded the Georgia Women in the Arts Award by the State of Georgia.
