ATLANTA, GA.- Alan Avery Art Company will celebrate their 30th anniversary with the exhibition The Glass Ceiling Shattered, 30 Years – 3 Great American Women Artists, featuring work from Louise Nevelson, Helen Frankenthaler and Kara Walker. The exhibition has opened to the public Saturday, December 3, 2011. The exhibition continues through Friday, February 10, 2012.

For the past three decades as an art dealer, Alan Avery has strived to bring a different voice and a new perspective to Atlanta’s collecting audience by bringing artists and great works to a city that may otherwise not be seen on southern soil. To celebrate Alan Avery Art Company’s landmark 30th anniversary, Alan wanted something that had not been done before, something that would not only speak about who he is as a dealer, but also offer the city an opportunity to learn, grow and expand their knowledge in the world of art and collecting great works of  art.

Throughout history, not only in the arts, the contributions of women have been over-looked. In the 20th century this perception began to change. With the women’s movement in the late 1960s and early 70s female artists garnered further acceptance and critical praise from the art world and general public. Associations like the Woman’s Caucus for Art provided venues for their art, giving them the visibility that has long been denied them.
