Atlanta Fine Arts League 2nd National Exhibition

"Lavender Lace" has been named as one of only 44 finalists in the 2nd Annual National Juried Exhibition of the Atlanta Fine Arts League.

This exhibition was juried by the wonderfully talented New York based realist painter Yuqi Wang, winner of the Grand Prize in the Portrait Society of America's annual competition. Most recently, he also won a major award in the National Portrait Gallery's biennial Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition.

AFAL scored a tremendous coup when they secured Mr. Wang to teach 2 week-long workshops in Atlanta this summer and as a result he will be in town and in attendence at the opening reception to present the awards.

Only 2 1/2 years old, the Atlanta Fine Arts League has already hosted 2 national juried exhibitions with a third in the works and has presented workshops with nationally recognized artists. AFAL has also received tremendous recognition by the public, the news media, the Georgia General Assembly and the Georgia Governor for their community project Art From the Heart - artists donating their time and talents to creat portraits of Georgia's fallen soldiers for their families.

We are truly honored to be a part of their 2nd Annual National Exhibition. "Lavender Lace" will be available for sale; contact the gallery for more information.
