While you are hiding out inside from the 90 degree temperature with 90% humidity, why don’t you make some art? Just make sure that your popsicle doesn’t drip. Click on Read More to see who is looking for art this month.

IMG_2607[1]

On the same day as the WeLoveFAFATL show (July 12,2014), there was an opening for Doodleslice‘s solo show at Hodgepodge Coffee. This FAFATL artist’s show consists of 1000 of drawings (doodles). Don’t worry, I didn’t take pictures of ALL of them ; ) If you didn’t make it to the opening, I believe the show will be hanging until the end of July (that’s next week!) or you can check out some pictures after the jump.

Places to get an artist’s booth – Part 2

Atlanta loves festivals and there are a few coming up that are looking for artists interested in selling items. This is a great way to make back some of the costs of creating free art. I’ve tried to find smaller or less well known festivals that have lower booth costs. More info after the jump.

If you weren’t able to make it out to the corner of University Avenue and McDaniel Street for WeLoveFAFATL, I have some pictures from the show. The show was a collaboration with WeLoveATL, so the pop-up gallery was on and in their fantastic truck (pictured above). Keep an eye out this week for pieces from the show being dropped. Make sure to check #WeLoveFAFATL & #FAFATL.

In Case You Missed It: Show Us What You Got Show 06/14/14

June 14th was the latest show at Trackside. The theme was “Show Us What You Got” meaning that the artists brought their A Game instead of themed art. If you somehow missed this show, check out pics below. If some of these look familiar, it is because some of the art was left over from previous shows. If you see something you like, make sure you head over to Trackside with some cash. I believe the art will stay up until the beginning of July. So get your butt on over and support local artists!
