The Studio Artist Program is opening its doors and inviting Atlanta to get a sneak peek of what these 14 artists (some pictured above) have been up to. The program supports them by providing subsidized studio space and encouraging them to create. From getting to see their new work to getting first dibs on a new piece, it’s a unique opportunity to meet artists like Christina A. West (second from top left). Curator Daniel Fuller will be on site to provide a tour of the current exhibitions as well. All entry fees directly benefit the program so come out and support these hard-working artists.

$5. 6 p.m. Thurs., June 23. Atlanta Contemporary. 535 Means St. N.W. www.atlantacontemporary.com.
