Artists in north Georgia, metro Atlanta and beyond will soon have a new place to share their visions – Reinhardt University’s Falany Performing Arts Center (FPAC)! Anticipated for next fall, portions of the Ken White Atrium will be available for artists to rent and exhibit their creations.
“There are so many wonderful artists in our area, but we don’t have an art gallery in Waleska for them to showcase their work. Opening this space for exhibits provides a great opportunity for artists,” says Jessica Akers, director of the FPAC. “The Falany welcomes over 15,000 visitors of all ages during a traditional performing arts season, enabling much exposure for artists.”
The addition of the art gallery also benefits guests of the FPAC. “There are many different art forms. In addition to our incomparable performing arts, we want to provide visual arts for a robust artistic experience when visitors arrive at the Falany.”
Artists will be able to rent the space based on their interests. “They can rent the entire gallery or just a specified area. We can also host opening receptions for artists, providing opportunities for their families, friends, and patrons to experience their work.” Most artwork displayed will be available for purchase, with opportunities to display paintings, pottery, sculptures, textiles and other works.
Details are underway to create this exciting new venue. Artists interested in exhibiting their work in FPAC should email Akers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
