Emily Amy Gallery closing
The shakeout among Atlanta’s private art galleries continues with the recent announcement that the Emily Amy Gallery will close.
“As I am sure you can imagine, the decision has been very difficult for me, as the gallery has been my life and my dream for the past five years,” Emily West, owner of the gallery in Westside’s Brickworks development, wrote in an announcement.
West said she will become director of Anne Irwin Fine Art and that a number of her artists will join the roster of that longtime gallery at 690 Miami Circle, Suite 150, Atlanta. Irwin plans to show them in the exhibit “Introductions,” opening with a 6-8:30 p.m. reception on Feb 22.
Emily Amy Gallery will remain open, with a group show on view, Thursdays through Saturdays through March. 1000 Marietta St. N.W., Suite 208, Atlanta. Information: 404-877-5626, www.emilyamygallery.com. HOWARD POUSNER
