Current Exhibition: Aaron Whitehouse “FLOW” Art Opening Friday, March 9 / 7-10pm. On Exhibition through Friday March 30, 2018.
Please join Westside Cultural Arts Center and Aaron Whitehouse as he brings his meditative ocean based works of art to the forefront in “FLOW”.
This body of work (FLOW) is meant to sow seeds of peace within the viewer- the calming feeling experienced when standing on the beach and taking in a deep breath is really what it’s about. It is also a meditation on surfing/surf culture and the art of flow. The idea that I could bring those simple yet powerful feelings to a major city with all it’s clamoring sounds and sensory overload is one I feel worth exploring…” – Aaron Whitehouse For more information, please click here:

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.
