A kind of virtual gallery, considering how itâs being launched by former Atlantans who now all live in New York and Washington, D.C., Opal Gallery at 484 Moreland Ave. is perched in alt-heaven. Itâs next door to A Cappella Books, a stoneâs throw from Criminal Records and Aurora Coffee, day job and exhibition space to many Atlanta artists.
For its Feb. 5 (6-8 p.m.) opening, Opal will feature the work of NYC-based photographer and UGA grad Christy Bush, whose Soundtrack to Nothing documents teenage indie-rock fans.
I can't wait to check out the space.
