Bask in the unique charm of Atlanta’s historic institution, The Callanwolde Center for the Arts, amidst the festivities of its Callanwolde Arts Festival the night before it opens to the general public. On Friday, January 22nd the former home of Charles Howard Candler will debut the expansive array of original artwork that it has rallied for the community to enjoy. Nearly one hundred painters, photographers, sculptors, metalworkers, glass artists and jewelers have gathered to display their artwork for the two-day indoor arts fest, and you’ll get to revel in it all (and maybe score some new artwork for your walls at home) before the home’s doors open to the general public.
Upon arriving at the historic home, you’ll be greeted with a glass of wine to sip on as you stroll around the home and revel in the artwork on display. And there’s plenty to see, whether you’re drawn to the steam-punk style, mixed media works of Athlone Clarke, the delicate jewelery pieces constructed by Cameron Kruse’s loving hands, or the artistic wooden carvings of Allen Quandee (or you know, innumerable works from the festival’s other 83 artists, the bulk of whom hail from the Southeastern corner of the United States that we call home). You’ll also have the opportunity to speak with a number of the artists themselves before they’re bogged down by the festival crowds – a bragging right that other festival attendees will not have the pleasure of claiming. As you peruse, enjoy edibles from hometown heroes Zest Catering, who will be passing hors d’oeuvres throughout the evening. Pinkies up, friends – this is sure to be a fine time of finery.
