Emily Amy Gallery is a new contemporary fine art gallery located in Atlanta, Georgia. The gallery exhibits a broad spectrum of art that is conceptually significant and visually stimulating, with a focus on works that recall mid-twentieth century modern masters.
The gallery represents twenty highly refined emerging, mid-career, and established artists from across the country to accommodate the needs of new collectors and seasoned art buyers alike. The artists work in a variety of media, including oil, acrylic, mixed media, and collage. A combination of solo and group exhibitions, along with an eclectic, rotating inventory, enable collectors to regularly view new work and learn about ever-changing trends.
The gallery is located in the Brickworks community in the up-and-coming design district on the Westside of Atlanta. The unique 3000 sq. ft. exhibition space, which contains concrete floors, exposed brick, high ceilings, and an abundance of natural light, serves as a calm and quiet backdrop to the art. Formerly a brick factory, and later a furniture warehouse, the space retains all the charm of its roots.
Under the leadership of Emily Kirksey Amy, the gallery strives to become one of the leading contemporary galleries in the Southeast. In her role as owner and director, Emily acts as an adviser to artists and clientèle, drawing upon her significant experience as director of one of Atlanta’s longest-standing galleries and her extensive education in the United States and abroad in art history and the fine arts. Emily’s warm and welcoming personality will make you feel right at home at Emily Amy Gallery.
Emily Amy has been a key player in the Atlanta arts scene for the past seven years. Emily is well versed in both art history and the fine arts by means of her education in the United States and abroad at institutions including Vanderbilt, Harvard, and the University of Georgia. It was at University of Georgia where Emily pursued her Master’s degree in 20th century American Art. Her passion and knowledge of early and mid-twentieth century modern art, namely Expressionism, Cubism, Constructivism, Abstract Expressionism, and Color Field Painting, have significantly influenced her recruitment decisions, evidenced by the stable of artists at Emily Amy Gallery.
While in graduate school, Emily worked closely with two Atlanta-based galleries, providing her with priceless experience under the direction of some of Atlanta’s most esteemed gallery directors. Upon leaving the University of Georgia, Emily accepted a job at one of Atlanta’s longest-standing galleries and quickly became one of the youngest gallery directors in Atlanta. After gaining substantial knowledge as a director and manager, she decided it was time to follow her dream and open a gallery of her own.
