Prices go up this time: 200-400-600

Atlanta GA – The Defoor Centre gets ready for another Off
The Wall show – this time we are upping the prices to $200, $400 and $600 for
artists to sell at. The week long show starts on November 13, 2011 with
afternoon party and comes down Friday November 18th. This is a great
time to check out the local artists, see what’s been going on in their studios,
and maybe buy a unique gift this year for the Holidays. Various artists, whether it been on paper or
on metal or sculpture or pottery this is a great chance to see the goods of
city’s most creative people.

“Over the past five years, since the first show, we’ve
changed it up a bit but always staying in touch with the basics, good work at
unheard of prices. It’s important for the non-art crowds to see more than
what’s going on and not been in a festival mode this is a gallery show,”
explains art director Jill Kettles. It was played upon her time at New Visions
Gallery at the TULA art center in Buckhead that gave her idea to create her own
to carry on the legacy. As a large gallery the place is able to house a lot of
work and it shows it various set ups as each room is different in its wall

Many well known and well-liked artists have been a part of
this; Karina Keri-Matuszak who
was voted best emerging artist from Creative Loafing readers, in 2008. Longtime
veteran gallery and marketing guru Sharron Ragan, whimsical mixed media Mark
Collins, and cutting edge photographer Matthew White have all been there from
day one. This is what makes the sales good, they’ve all sold and they are a
continuing force to drive more artists to this show. Sometimes just being
around them gives you the inspiration to do more.

So come out with your artistic minds in hand and your check
book in tow to be prepared to buy some fabulous work, cause it will be gone
before you can blink.

About the Defoor Centre:

The Defoor Centre is located off Howell Mill Rd in Atlanta
in the reviving Westside neighborhood, where a lot of local vendors that cater
to the interior designers have been going to for years. The Centre has been a
growing facility hosting major fundraisers to corporate meetings to private
weddings all in house catering with a full bar. 100 years ago this place was a
hospital for the soldiers fighting at the Battle of Peachtree Creek and to this
day they are “still there.”
