As 2017 comes to a close, looking back I have a lot to be thankful for.


FUTURE DEAD ARTISTS (FDA) is having an open call for emerging, mid-career, and established visual artists and photographers in the Atlanta area to participate in their group art exhibition,  Thankful.

As 2017 comes to a close, one word comes to mind, "Thankful". The year held a lot of highs and a few lows and I'm thankful for every moment. So I figured 'Thankful' would be the perfect theme for the first show at Future Gallery. What are you thankful for?

Sounds like a dope show you'd like to be a part of? Then please submit your work by November 18, 2017, to be considered. Read below for more information on how you can apply.
