EYEDRUM ART AND MUSIC GALLERY’s continued presence since opening in 1998 is a reassuring reminder that the indie spirit lives on despite the rising rents and in-the-box art thinking. This artist-run, nonprofit, interdisciplinary living room for the city’s culture hounds has capitalized on a renaissance sensibility by bringing video, performance, poetry, music, visual arts and everything in-between all together under one roof. Notable events this year included the Submerged and Shelter group shows, a solo exhibition by Gail Vogels, the Indie Craft Experience and a screening of artist Joseph Cornell’s films.

With a nose for cutting-edge artists and a willingness to take chances, Sam Romo’s eponymous venue, ROMO GALLERY, has added a fresh new conceptual-art voice to the growing energy of the Castleberry Hill art district. The gallery’s recent shows by outside-Atlanta artists, such as Working Artists in Brooklyn and photographer Yoshio Itagaki’s solo show, indicate a rising national interest in artwork addressing the intersections of technology and biology with media and folklore, which should only deepen and evolve over time. less...

With most galleries and museums, you kind of know what to expect. THE ATLANTA CONTEMPORARY ART CENTER, however, manages to continually shock - in a good way. The Contemporary has managed to consistently appeal to the fringe and the center, alternating its exhibitions between the fun and the eggheady, the pop and the academic. The Contemporary exposes innovative regional artists to Atlanta viewers, as in the recent Michael Oliveri exhibition "Fast Food, Hydrocarbons and Waves in Outer Space". And curator Helena Reckitt occasionally steps aside so independent curators can introduce a fresh perspective, as seen in this year's thoughtful group show "Terrain Vague: Architecture, Photography and the Postindustrial Landscape", which traveled to Pittsburgh's Carnegie Museum of Art.

If you buy art for an investment, there are plenty of places in Atlanta with pedigreed artists and pre-certified art you can frequent.

If you buy art for an investment, there are plenty of places in Atlanta with pedigreed artists and pre-certified art you can frequent. But if you buy art for the sheer pleasure of owning something you love, then YOUNG BLOOD GALLERY & BOUTIQUE is just the ticket. Its spicy subculture-surfing repertoire of local and national artists from the Workhorse collective to Atlanta's own Jacob Escobedo provides buyers with work that is socially relevant, political, smart-ass or just great eye candy. And even the most challenged slacker budget can find, if not art, then commerce in the heavy rotation of great neo-craft, clothing and etcetera on sale in the Young Blood Boutique.

They say change is good, and that certainly is the case with MARCIA WOOD GALLERY, which moved from a cramped Buckhead space to the urban-chic outpost of Castleberry Hill in January, and brought a fresh energy and vision to the space. Solo shows by neo-collagist and social commentator Marcus Kenney, Atlanta painter Katherine Taylor and stitch wizard Kim Ouellette, whose mix of conceptual sewing and wit was a major Wood discovery, proved standouts. And the stunning new gallery space featuring an infusion of space and light, plus a patio and courtyard, injected even more visual appeal.

Though situated in the land of big box retail, the quirky SPRUILL GALLERY is distinguished by the idiosyncratic taste of curator Ben Apfelbaum. Apfelbaum's juxtapositions of highbrow and lowbrow material, young and established artists, folk and academic art have put Spruill on the radar. Apfelbaum's mix of traditionalism and conceptualism in this year's "Silhouette: The Art of the Form" was a prime example of why art fans are bothering to trek to an out-of-the-way space for interesting art.

Visiting SOLOMON PROJECTS, with its steady lineup of NYC artists including Carter Kustera, Drew Lowenstein, Janet Biggs and Wendy White, is like having Chelsea or Williamsburg delivered fresh and piping hot to your front door without the hipper-than-thou attitude or the lingering smell of piss. Solomon's locus of smart, New York-centric artists tend to tap into the elements of fashion, video art and cutting-edge painting that make that city's art scene sizzle, from Kustera's catty evisceration of fashion magazine cliches to Lowenstein's sci-fi evocative paintings, both featured in solo shows this year.

A remarkable show in an unexpected venue, "ELLIE WEEMS: BIRTH, DEATH AND LIVE IN BETWEEN" at Barbara Archer Gallery surveyed the black-and-white portraits taken by this African-American photographer from the Depression through the '60s, and offered a tender, funny, touching glimpse into the many small wonders of private lives.

535 Means St. 404-688-1970 www.thecontemporary.org. For chichi, no one could top Fay Gold's coming out party in her new space last summer (with gorgeous carved ice martini bar and sushi). But on non-profit art space manage a consistently high energy when it comes to openings. The "2001 Biennial" at the Contemporary was celebrated with live music and performance art, and the annual Artparty is a monumental blast-off for the center's first fall show. Three others merit mention: Eyedrum, which features so many local artists, there's always a crowd opening night; ShedSpace, which gets the curiosity vote, luring gallery goers into backyard sheds; and the annual "Erotica" show, which plays a one-night stand to great throngs of people. less...
