One of my favorite art markets in Atlanta starts this Tuesday night, February 19th, and goes on through the rest of the week. It is called the Spotlight on Art Market, and it is a great place to see and buy amazing art at really good prices. Many of the artists are emerging, many are established. There is a huge variety at the market - lots of contemporary art (my favorite), impressionist art, folk art. Another bonus is that the market is for a good cause - it organized and run by Trinity School, and takes place on their campus in Buckhead.

I love this art market because it is indoors, the art is very well displayed, there is a huge variety, and the prices tend to be quite reasonable (certainly more reasonable that galleries). There is also a lot of free parking (I hate it when it is hard to park somewhere). The market opens this Tuesday night with a great opening night party. It goes on all week and ends on Saturday. For hours and more information, check out the website: Spotlight on Art Market 2008
