Responding to New Collectors



Emily Amy Gallery seems to be responding to new collectors by offering an array of smaller works on paper from emerging artists, in addition to the large works on canvas by established talent. The former are often more attainable. One of the fresh faces represented by EAG is Zuzka Vaclavik. Zuzka received her MFA from the University of Georgia in 2008 and is passionate about the slower paced process of working with paint as opposed to other media. Shown above are two examples of her watercolors on paper, each 15 by 11 inches. Read more about Zuzka at RedandBlack.com, and check out the Atlanta Intown cover story on Emily Amy's efforts to spearhead WAD -- the Westside Arts District.

Also, a reminder: Hollins' senior majors exhibition opens at the Eleanor D. Wilson Museum tomorrow, Tuesday, May 5, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Under the direction of Amy Moorefield, the Museum is gaining a stronger national profile.

I love the watercolors, very ethereal!

Beautiful watercolors. In fact, that is one medium that our collection is missing.

If there is any interest, Zuzka Vaclavik and other local emerging artists will be included in a show running July 10- August 26 entitled "Buy Local": A Group Show celebrating Atlanta's Emerging Talents!

Thank you for posting this, for people my age looking to get into collecting (but with smaller budgets), it's nice to know that not only can we appreciate art, but buy it in a gallery setting sometimes and not always off of etsy!
