Art Galleries in Atlanta

COVID-19 Update: The impact of coronavirus on the arts community has been devastating. We lost Mammal Gallery and The Bakery, two vital DIY spaces. Most galleries that closed down in March or on April 2, when Georgia was put under a stay-at-home order, remain closed or, in cases like the MINT, Marcia Wood Gallery and the Hammonds House Museum, are accessible by appointment only. No arts organization, performance space or enterprise, regardless of size or mission, was unaffected.
