The Decatur Arts Alliance is making great use of the window space left behind when By Hand South owner Brenda Leder retired. The window has become “Decatur Street Gallery” showcasing the work of local artist Gail Vogels. Glad to see that this wonderful window has become part of the street scene on Ponce.

Artists interested in an opportunity to have their work displayed should contact Executive Director Angie Macon at 404-371-9583.  Kudos to the Arts Alliance for their efforts to support local artists! Consider joining the organization and getting involved.

Okay, so I “borrowed” the title from a DM Blog comment, but I thought it was appropriate! Last month the Great Decatur Beer Tasting Festival brought over 4000 people to the Decatur Square to taste over 4oo different beers. So, to be fair to the wine drinkers in the area, the Decatur Arts Alliance is presenting the 8th annual Decatur Wine Festival this coming Saturday. There will be over 350 different wines for your tasting pleasure, plus 14 restaurants offering samples of their foods and music all afternoon. And all of this plus a commemorative wine tasting glass for only $30! Interested?  Get your tickets here!
