Arts for All Gallery

Watch This Is Atlanta on PBA30 Atlanta's PBS StationThe city of Atlanta is home to a multitude of fine art galleries. Located in the historic Healy Building in downtown Atlanta’s Fairlie-Poplar district, one will find a very unique gallery by the name of “Arts for All Gallery”.

Arts for All Gallery is dedicated to exhibiting artists of merit with disabilities and/or low income. “Arts for All Gallery” is a program of VSA Arts of Georgia, a statewide resource that works with artists and organizations to encourage everyone to enjoy and participate in the arts. In addition to paintings, “Arts for All Gallery” displays photography, textile art, sculptures, and other visual fine arts done within the parameters of their mission.

One visit to this gallery and patrons quickly become aware that the works on display maybe created by artists with various disabilities; however their “disability” does not hold them back from creating exceptional art! The gallery also provides Braille exhibition pamphlets, as well as audio descriptions of selected works of art.
