We are so excited to be representing one of our very own, Hailey Lowe! Many of you know Hailey from her days here at GIFA.

For those of you heading off to spring break in the next few days, be sure to check out Erin McIntosh's work at Hartsfield-Jackson! Erin's paintings will be featured alongside work from a few other of Atlanta's top talent in the E-merge exhibit, running from January 2013 - January 2014. This exhibit, which will be held in the T-Concourse, is a survey of Atlanta contemporary artists conceived and curated by Hope Cohn for the Art Program at Atlanta's international airport. Way to go, Erin!!!
