Tucked behind a burger chain in a high-end shopping center, Poem 88 is easy to miss. The gallery doesn't exhibit the biggest names in Atlanta or have the highest profile, but it has cultivated a core audience that keeps returning. And for good reasons that go beyond the typical exhibition: There is heady experimental music by groups such as Chamber Cartel, soulful folk performances, small-press books in the shop, and film screenings of art house favorites. When the programming coincides - as it did with the exhibition Blow-Up and a Michelangelo Antonioni film series - it creates an opportunity for the audience to look at the work on the walls in a new light, to see the connections between inspiration and action. less...

There's something wonderfully raw and unpretentious about self-taught artist Lloyd Benjamin's Westside art space Get This! Gallery. Benjamin tools casually around the gallery in jeans and a T-shirt, the band-aids on his fingers alluding to the manual labor taking place in the frame shop he runs out of the back of the building. In the same way that Benjamin creates a laid-back feel in his immaculate space, he lends a sense of polish to emerging local artists, such as street art duo Paper Twins, when their works find a place on his walls. Jill Storthz's time-trippy Woodcuts and the Jiha Moon-curated printmaking survey Life Iconic rounded out a year of compelling exhibits. 662 11th St. 678-596-4451. getthisgallery.com. less...

GET THIS! GALLERY is a small but smartly curated space run by artist and musician Lloyd Benjamin, whose own artwork focuses on train yards. The gallery’s edgy artwork by musician Rick Froberg and train-jumping photographer Mike Brodie also keeps the Castleberry Hill neighborhood’s gentrifying, upscale tendencies in check. Benjamin’s eye for under-the-radar artists makes Get This! a noteworthy space with true vision. less...

The tiny, adventurous ROMO GALLERY in Castleberry Hill consistently surprises — and sometimes confounds — visitors with its mix of emerging and established artists, and local and national talent. Its exhibition of L.A.-based artist Jennifer Celio was a standout this year.
