REBRANDED ART GALLERY DEBUTS AT PHIPPS PLAZA
Phipps Plaza’s freshly rebranded Gallery Seven (formerly Carré d’artistes Atlanta) features original paintings, photographs, sculptures and more by artists from all over the world, with an emphasis on local artists. Owner Brenda Joyce says she opened the studio in hopes of bridging the gap between different cultures and helping the Atlanta art community become known on a global scale. “Art is for everyone,” she says. “With so much unrest going on in the world, I plan to use art to connect people from all walks of life.” Notable Atlanta-based artists whose work can be seen at the space include Leroy Campbell, DL Warfield, Bob Ichter and Nabil Mousa. And with pieces starting at just $40, the prices are even accessible to art lovers on a budget.
