Push Pin Success
Wow. We had a huge turnout last Friday night for the opening of PUSH-PiN. Many people showed up early to make sure they got a good spot, and we would like to thank everyone for their patience. We were not expecting such an enormous crowd and were a little overwhelmed. Thanks also to Sara Keith and Allison Jarek from Atlanta School of Photography (ASOP) for providing an amazing photo booth, under very tricky lighting conditions. ASOP also provided beer, beverages, and prizes for the 1st, 2nd & 3rd place winners. Thank you, thank you, everyone.
A special thank you to the Brookhaven Mellow Mushroom for their generous donation of 18(!!!) pizzas for PUSH-PiN. When you're in the mood for pizza, please consider visiting them for a pie and a pitcher. And make sure you thank them for donating to APG.
Record Art Sales in 2017
APG sold over $8,000 in art in 2017. That's a record for at least the the last five years. And we wrote $5,600 in checks to artists for those sales. Did you know APG only takes a 30% commission on art sales? That's a lower commission on sales than most galleries in the Atlanta area; both commercial and non-profit galleries usually take a 50% commission.
