We all need alternatives - things to do - ways to learn- things to see - so we are offering Georgia's only Drive Thru indoor Art Gallery this Friday from 6pm to 10pm. You will literally stay in your car and drive through our Sanctuary building. Originally used as a drive in warehouse, we have been blessed with large steel doors on either end of the building,
Click on the "For Tickets" button to the right to get tickets. In addition, we have built a "gallery program" sales guide to use when you are going through the exhibit. Click on this Show and Sales Guide to get more information on any of these amazing works. Each piece will be described in order for each artist, along with a detailed description and pricing information. Please review this guide before and during your drive thru experience.
Our gallery will be set up like a small tunnel of sorts, complete with road striping and panels suspended close to the drive thru lane to enable you to see each piece in better detail.
Our featured artist this month is Marty Fromm. Marty has spent over a year chronicling Grant's Lounge in downtown Macon. Grant's is an iconic spot - having hosted nearly every one of Macon's great bands in their nearly 50 years of existence. Grant's was recently purchased and is being carefully updated to accommodate planning requirements but retaining its original charm. Grant's is still run by the Grants, Ed and Cheryl, and we are hopeful that when completed, the vibe will be every bit as cool as it has always been.
Marty has taken over 85,000 photographs of patrons, players and people, and 16 of his best photos will be on display for you to enjoy and to purchase.
As an added bonus, we are pleased to announce the informal opening of the "Quonset Hut", one of our large buildings on the campus. For this event, Craig Coleman, the Chair of the Arts Department at Mercer University will be creating a video immersion experience, complete with 6 video projectors lighting up the walls and entire ceiling of this iconic old building.
Finally, our "Wunderkammer" a joint venture between Triangle Arts Macon and The Museum of Arts and Sciences will be showing several new and old artists whose work is particularly appealing. As before - all our work will be for sale.
We'd also like to thank our ongoing sponsors
Finally, we'd like to mention that in our continuing effort to revitalize neighborhoods and the organizations that support them, we are providing 20% of our ticket proceeds to the Grant's Rebuilding effort. If you haven't been to Grant's, once it opens, you absolutely HAVE to go down there. And tell them you heard about them at the Triangle;-)
We will be selling advance tickets for $5 through Eventbrite - see below - or for $10 at the door. There will also be merchandise for sale.
