The Gallery

The Gallery @ Westside Cultural Arts Center –  Hours: Tuesday – Friday 11:00am – 4:00pm.

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.

After consulting with many physicians, in March 2013 he chose to undergo experimental procedures which allowed him to regain 10% -15% vision in one eye.

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.
