October 25, 2013ALPHARETTA, Ga. — A fine art gallery is going to be celebrating its grand opening Nov. 15 17.
The Sedgwick Gallery, a fine art gallery located in historic downtown Alpharetta, is opening at 61 Roswell Street.
Located in one of the city's oldest homes, built in 1856, the Skelton-Teasly House provides a backdrop to showcase exquisite works of art and adds to the cultural experience of downtown Alpharetta.
"We think it signifies the perfect time and place for fine art," said Ryan Sedgwick, gallery manager.
Sedgwick Gallery will highlight the works of 20th century Masters including Peter Max, whose pop art has inspired Americans for decades; early French modernist Marc Chagall, whose work can be found on the ceiling of the Paris Opera House; American expressionist painter LeRoy Neiman, renowned for his brilliantly colored paintings and inspired screen prints of musicians and athletes; and Salvador Dal', the world famous Spanish surrealist.
The gallery also includes distinctly American works by Thomas Kinkade; Tarkay, the Austrian-born Israeli painter and watercolorist; and fellow Israeli master printer Amram Ebgi.
The gallery features custom commissioned and framed oil paintings perfect for decorating any home as well as rotating features with established local artists.
"I have conducted hundreds of charitable art auctions nationally, and believe it is an opportune time to bring that kind of excitement to my hometown," said Scott Sedgwick, gallery owner.
From 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday, Nov. 15 and Saturday, Nov. 16, as well as from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, complimentary drinks and hors d'oeuvres will be served. For more information, call 404-281-9998 or visit sedgwickgallery.com.
