AJC readers really appreciate your expanded coverage of the arts with articles like the ones written by Howard Pousner. Capturing the essence of visual arts events and happenings, beyond the more well known Atlanta art venues, continues to be refreshing.Now to get the metro-Atlanta community to seek out some wonderful shows at places like The ART Station in Stone Mountain Village or a planetarium show at the Tellus Museum in Cartersville..
