Atlanta Contemporary

Formerly the Nexus Contemporary Art Center, this significant gallery is now best known as the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (ACAC). As perhaps the city's most forward-looking source for art, ACAC plays host to an enviable roster of exhibits and also maintains an exemplary collection of the most current and cutting-edge contemporary art. Special events are hosted on a fairly regular basis. The center also conducts Studio Artists Programs for supporting local artists with creation and presentation of their work.

High Museum of Art

It is hard to miss this ultra-modern, white structure that houses Atlanta's finest collections of classic and contemporary art. A towering atrium soars to four interior levels, with the galleries moving from 18th and 19th Century collections near the ground floor to cutting-edge art on the upper levels. The High has increased in size to 312,000 square feet (2972.89 square meters) with three buildings designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano: the Susan and John Wieland Pavilion, the Anne Cox Chambers Wing for galleries, and an office building. The High is a frequent host to some of the world's most important touring collections and has hosted exhibitions featuring artists like Pablo Picasso and Norman Rockwell. With over 18000 works in the permanent collection, the High also displays old prints of Abe Lincoln, General William Tecumseh Sherman and an array of sculptures and photographs.

Alan Avery Art Company

According to the consistent raves of local critics, Alan Avery Art Company, formerly Trinity Gallery, is a nice modern art gallery. Located in the heart of Buckhead, it presents notable works by contemporary and past artists, including major exhibitions of the works of such renowned names as Robert Rauschenberg and Chuck Close. All of the pieces are for sale, so if you are looking for a special kind of art that is both a beautiful decoration and conversation piece, this is the ideal place to begin your search.
