The Gallery

The Gallery @ Westside Cultural Arts Center

The Gallery at Westside Cultural Arts Center is an Atlanta art gallery featuring a rotating collection of local, national and international artists, cultural and community programming, and an artist in residence program.

“Art should push the limits, raise questions and, most importantly, get people talking,” said Dr. Chappuis. “I’m attracted to artists who tell a story with their work and thus we provide space so they can create narratives beyond the traditional gallery model.”

WCAC works to attract artists who think and create outside of the box. From the Cracking Art oversized pink dogs in sneakers that flank the entrance to the mural plastered along a city-block-long stretch of the building by noted muralist, HENSE, WCAC showcases artists in their Atlanta art gallery from emerging to established in an array of mediums.

Scott Cunningham has had the best seat in the house for some of the biggest moments in sports, capturing the thrill of victory and agony of defeat for posterity.  After 40 seasons photographing the Atlanta Hawks and many of the world’s best athletes on the field of play and off.   From the Baseline: 40 Years Beneath the Rim,  curated by by Michael David Murphy of Atlanta Celebrates Photography, puts a spotlight on Scott’s photographic journey in a completely new way.

On these walls, you’ll see Hawks and legends, late nights and fights.  Know there was always another, always perfectly beyond the frame — Scott Cunningham, not just another man behind a lens: a pure professional, sharing a vision of a lifetime.”

George Settos – To The Edge and Back

Art Opening Friday, June 16, 2017  7-10pm  (Click HERE For More Info)

Throughout George Settos’ collection of work, there’s a common thread of nostalgia for days gone by, and the iconic musicians, performers and faces that defined them. Working primarily with acrylics on canvas and what he likes to call his own proprietary formula, Settos, best known for his pop art, high contrast portraits and raised textured edge created by using the back of his paintbrush, explores what is often considered “Black and White,” and how things change when you add another dimension. His 3-D technique can quite literally make his art jump off of the canvas.
