E-merge is a survey of Atlanta's contemporary artists conceived and curated by Hope Cohn for the Art Program at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The exhibition is on view at the T-Concourse from January 2013 to January 2014.
To emerge is to come into existence, to become evident, to come into sight or view.
Atlanta has a vibrant and active arts scene. With an internationally recognized art museum, several prominent regional arts institutions and numerous art galleries, Atlanta is also home to hundreds of active artists. Working in many different artistic styles and media, Atlanta's artists are creating high quality works of art from cutting edge to traditional artistic explorations. The goal of this exhibition is to provide a representative sampling of the work of Atlanta's current visual artists and to show the variety of styles and media that have been created by some of Atlanta's strongest artistic talent. Sculpture, painting, photography, video and installation-based works embody the breadth of practices in the city and create a space and dialogue for art appreciation and contemplation among busy travelers. Please pause for a moment to enjoy this exciting cross section of Atlanta’s current visual artists.
