MFA students curate group exhibition for Atlanta Art Week

Francis Oliver

Organizers of the 2023 edition of Atlanta Art Week invited nine MFA students at the Lamar Dodd School of Art to present the group exhibition Unlisted at The Works, a mixed-use development in Atlanta’s Upper Westside, from October 3 through October 7, 2023. Atlanta Art Week partners with over 20 galleries, museums, and arts institutions in the metropolitan region to spotlight a rich variety of cultural programs. Participating students, in their third and final year of the fine arts graduate program at the University of Georgia, will serve as the first formal link between Athens and Atlanta during this seminal annual event. 

Join the artists for an exhibition reception on Tuesday, October 3rd from 5 – 7 pm at 1295 Chattahoochee Avenue NW, Suite 126. Find out more, including gallery hours, at An optional RSVP response for the reception can be submitted here.

“One of the premier art communities in the nation is just 60 miles away — our inclusion in Atlanta Art Week puts us in a rarefied position as one of the only partners outside of the Atlanta area to participate, alongside institutions like the High Museum, the Atlanta Contemporary, and MOCA GA, said Joe Peragine, director of the School of Art who is himself an accomplished artist represented by Marcia Wood Gallery in Atlanta. 

“We are always talking to students about professional practices and preparing for success beyond the classroom. Unlisted positions our MFA students to be in conversation with colleagues in the region who can inform their current body of work as they prepare for their upcoming thesis exhibition in the spring.”
