Phone: (770) 977-2732/Email: email@example.com "Rory Golden is a powerfully articulate artist who takes on some highly charged issues and this exhibition may ruffle some feathers, especially here in the conservative South", says Byrma Braham, director of Avisca Fine Art Gallery. Gallery director, Byrma Braham, is quite familiar with Golden's' work, saying of Golden in preparation of a solo exhibition at her gallery, "It was the aesthetics that first pulled me in-the energy. Braham says "It's new territory for me…there's a part of me that always wants to push buttons, because at a certain age, you tire of doing the same things.
Byrma Braham, gallery director at Avisca Fine Art in Marietta, shows work by Ann Tanksley in the 'Images of Zora' exhibit on display at the contemporary fine art gallery, which specializes in art by African-American artists.
Byrma Braham, Avisca co-owner and gallery director, said guests at the opening of Tanksley's exhibit included a mix of students, professionals and seniors of different backgrounds from across metro Atlanta. The Avisca gallery exhibits primarily black and Caribbean artwork. Hurston's appeal as a fiction writer who specialized in relationships within black culture is broad and attracts both young and older readers, Braham said. "It might have to do with the colorful way in which she wrote and her imagination," said Braham, a Jamaican native.
Byrma Braham, a longtime dealer who is opening Avisca Fine Art in Marietta this month, suggested that it suffered from competition with other NBAF events.Nevertheless, she says, "They created a solid foundation."She, like other dealers interviewed, plans to come back next year.They will perhaps be joined by some of the nonparticipating dealers who were seen scouting the fair, including one from Paris.
Byrma Braham has been an art dealer and collector for over 20 years.In 1985 she co-founded one of New York City's first full service African American art galleries.She ran the gallery with her business partner for 11 years prior to relocating to the Atlanta area.A knowledgeable and articulate authority on African American art and the business of selling art, she has lectured and consulted extensively on the subjects and has curated a number of exhibitions.Forsaking the rigorous demands of running a full time gallery, she has chosen the path of a private fine art dealer, a position which allows her to travel to seek out talent and to carefully cater to the needs of her clients.
