2. Each night of the week is in a different part of town.
Each night focuses on a different neighborhood, with the galleries in that part of town hosting events and welcoming new visitors. Visit the website for a complete schedule, list of participating galleries, and even a map, but the basic outline is:
OCTOBER 1 - BUCKHEAD I & CASTLEBERRY
OCTOBER 2 - WESTSIDE GALLERIES
OCTOBER 3 - BUCKHEAD GALLERIES II
OCTOBER 4 - HIGHLANDS & PONCE
OCTOBER 5 - FLUX NIGHT
OCTOBER 6 - INMAN PARK & BUCKHEAD
3. It leads up to Flux Night
The week is being planned in cooperation with Flux Night, Atlanta's hugely popular night of free public art in the Castleberry Hill neighborhood, which takes place Saturday, October 5. Contributor Erin Elyse lists the Ten Things You Need to Know About Flux in this week's Creative Loafing. (Yes, there will be a quiz on all of this).
5. Every week is gallery week.
Atlanta galleries are actually open year round, and they are always free, and it seems there's always something interesting going on. There's no reason to ever feel intimidated or weird about going into one. To keep up on what's happening in the world of visual arts, and to read interesting news, profiles, and reviews from the art world, check out some of Atlanta's great arts websites like BurnAway, ArtsATL and, of course, your weekly Creative Loafing!
