Who+ What: Celebrating its 35th anniversary this season, the Spotlight on Art Artists Market consistently pulls record crowds with nearly 1,000 pieces sold each day. Thousands of visitors make the trip to the six-day Artists Market each year for its ever-changing inventory of artwork.
Spotlight on Art 2015 featured more than 350 invitation-only participating artists. Artist alums include Benny Andrews, Radcliffe Bailey, Howard Finster, Thornton Dial, John McWilliams, Todd Murphy, Gogo Ferguson, and Robert Rauschenberg. Their work and that of hundreds more have been added to prestigious museums and collections around the world, including the High Museum of Art, The National Gallery, The Smithsonian, the Museum of Modern Art, and many others on five continents.
Pieces at all price points, from $5 to $15,000 in areas such as Contemporary, Realism, Impressionism, Folk, and Sculpture, as well as the stunning Jewelry gallery.
“As the largest artists market in the Southeast, there is truly something for every art lover at Spotlight on Art,” says Sarah Williams, the Spotlight on Art 2016 chair. “With the help and hard work of more than 200 volunteers, Trinity School transforms its walls into 6,000 square feet of incredible gallery space. Whether you are a casual observer, art aficionado, an emerging artist looking for inspiration, or a seasoned talent, a walk through the Spotlight on Art Artists Market will expand anyone’s understanding of the amazing world of art!”
Proceeds from Spotlight on Art support Trinity School funding priorities such as student financial aid and continuing teacher education. The Sixth Grade – the “senior class”of students at Trinity – also dedicates a portion of proceeds as a charitable gift to an organization to be chosen in the fall as part of their Values curriculum. Past recipients have included The Joseph Sams School, Families First, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, and Atlanta Pet Rescue and Adoption.
Where + When: The Spotlight on Art Artists Market will be held February 1 – February 6 on the campus of Trinity School at 4301 Northside Parkway. The Artists Market is open to the public each day and for two celebratory “meet the artists” evenings, Opening Night (February 1, 6-9 PM) and Cocktails & Canvases (February 5, 6-9 PM).
