I am very proud of Samantha and all of these young artists, and thrilled to be part of her first gallery sale. I has been wonderful to watch Samantha handle every aspect of this exhibition. All of the artists who participated displayed great pieces.

The Young@Art opening reception on April 22 was well attended at Ferrari Fine Art Gallery. The show’s curator, Samantha Hughes, solicited submissions and selected works from aspiring, emerging and established young artists age 25 and under. Hughes is currently a senior studying art history and painting at the University of Georgia. The show represents the culmination of her semester-long internship with Ferrari Fine Art.
This week-long show was Hughes’ gallery debut as a curator as well as an artist. Additionally, this was the first opportunity for many of these artists to have works displayed in a gallery. Hughes was responsible for all aspects of the Young@Art exhibition, including the call-for-submissions, artist selection, arrangement and hanging of the artwork, creating the marketing materials, and promoting the event. The artists featured in the show are Abby Gregg, Andrew Huang, Daniel Byrd, Logan Shirah, Rachel Feels, Samantha Hughes, Wood Adamson and Zach Werbalowsky.

About Ferrari Fine Art:
Ferrari Fine Art seeks to exhibit artwork that depicts the simple joy, harmony and beauty that exists but is often overlooked in the rush of our daily lives or overshadowed by the predominance of suffering, conflict and injustice in our world. By connecting with causes and the organizations that are working to improve our community and the human condition, we hope to flip the paradigm of the community supporting the arts to create a venue through which art is supporting the community.
Founded by Atlanta artist Carolyn Holderness Ferrari as continuation of a career dedicated to the principles of social responsibility and cause consciousness, Ferrari Fine Art is unique in its mission to create a venue in which art supports the community.
