ACP + APG Participants Acquire Photo Collection Through Print Swap

In a gorgeous atrium that just a few weeks ago was a disco, dozens of artists came together to collect each others photography. On Friday October 7th, 2016 during the kick off event for this years Atlanta Celebrates Photography Portfolio Reviews, The Gallery 145 hosted yet another successful print swap. The event took place at the Atlanta Photography Group Gallery and was open to members of APG and ACP Portfolio Reviewees. 

The event was also a sneak preview of the fabulous exhibition Arnika Dawkins Selects at the APG Gallery. The official opening reception is October 21, 2016 from 6:30 - 9:30PM.

This print swap, like all the others that The Gallery 145 has hosted, will hopefully lead to new audiences for artists, an expanded network of dedicated peers, and a generation of artists who support their passion by modeling the importance of collecting art. We look forward to seeing all of you next year!

For those of you who attended, please share images of your newly acquired work and tag @thegallery145.
