NEW GALLERY MAKES ITS ATLANTA PREMIERE
When husband and wife art collectors Ramsey and Heidi Maune decided to start their own gallery, Maune Contemporary, they didn’t keep it under the radar. To the contrary, they launched with an exhibition by an iconic artist with an equally iconic tie to Atlanta: Alex Katz. The renowned American figurative artist draws inspiration from advertising art history, including hometown brand Coca-Cola. As part of the gallery’s opening exhibition, Katz’s “Coca-Cola Girl” series made its area premiere in September. The couple says they were thrilled to have Katz in their opening show, which they felt was a fitting way to honor their new home in Atlanta, given the brand’s rich heritage and extensive ties to the city. “We’re also extremely fortunate that we were able to procure an original Alex Katz Coca-Cola Girl oil painting to feature as well,” they say. The exhibit will be on display through Nov. 16.
