Atlanta, GA— The Office of Cultural Affairs and City Gallery Chastain is pleased to announce Drawing Connections featuring ten locally based artists -Alejandro Aguilera, Yanique Norman, Kojo Griffin, Corrina Sephora Mensoff, Matt Haffner, Chung-Fan Chang, Corrine Colarusso, Ben Smith, Leslie Kneisel, and Benjamin Jones.  This group of artists was chosen because they symbolize various aspects of the Atlanta arts community who have one thing in common, the love of artistic expression.

Those who attend will truly enjoy an atmosphere of exploration and interaction with the artists and their works of art.

This exhibition features drawing which is known as the purest form of art.  While most of us think of drawing as pencil to paper, these artists will challenge your perception. Each artist has a distinctive style and unique voice that is known by viewers of the art.   

Drawing Connections will attract different audiences based on the diverse offerings in the gallery.  This show consist of mixed media, works on paper, and installation, etc.  There will be something for everyone.  Each viewer will experience unique perspectives of this traditional art form.
