The Welch School of Art & Design at Georgia State University is excited to announce its annual MFA Open Studios event. For this multi-floor, multi-building event, M.F.A. students in Painting, Drawing, Printmaking, Ceramics, Textiles, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Sculpture, and Photography welcome the public in to visit their spaces.

Guests have the opportunity to roam the halls of our school, dropping into student studios for exclusive looks at in-process work and conversations about our artists and designers' practices. Larger classrooms and exhibition spaces in our building will house multi-media installations and video-art screenings. Each year, our B.F.A.s eagerly participate in the event, exhibiting and selling their own work from senior portfolio. Meet emerging artists, see demos, buy work, and take part in the second annual Atlanta Art Week!

During Atlanta Art Week, the Welch School Gallery will feature simultaneous solo exhibitions by photographers Tanyth Berkeley (New York City) and Jimmy Fike (Avondale, Arizona). Berkeley's tender street portraits and Fike's images of ephemeral North-American edible plants reverberate with themes of environmental justice, the climate crisis, and the commons. The gallery will be open for extended hours so that party goers may visit the shows!

This year's theme is "GLITCH” and we once again encourage dress that matches the vibe! The night will be DJ'd and free beverages and snacks will be served late into the evening.

Atlanta Art Week is a new initiative that celebrates the visual arts in one of the fastest growing art hubs in the United States. Founded by Art Advisor (and Georgia State Alumna) Kendra Walker, AAW aims to create a dynamic environment that brings together galleries, artists, collectors, and art enthusiasts to promote cultural exchange, education, economic development, and appreciation of the arts
