Premiere event to showcase national talent

Special for the AJT

This year Spotlight on Art and Neiman Marcus join forces for the first time to provide art enthusiasts and holiday shoppers with a special preview of the carefully curated Spotlight on Art 2015 collection. From November 29 through January 27, Neiman Marcus Atlanta Lenox Square will feature a superlative selection of works by twenty-five talented artists in a range of media and styles.

“Youth and the arts is the primary focus for Neiman Marcus’ corporate charitable strategy,” says Rebecca Brodnan, Public Relations Manager for Neiman Marcus. “Neiman Marcus Atlanta is thrilled to partner with Trinity School and specifically the Spotlight on Art event, which is the perfect partner to further our charitable outreach in the community.”

Neiman Marcus is generously donating display space and sharing their world-renowned customer experience, with all proceeds from the gallery going to Spotlight on Art, an annual fundraising event supporting Trinity School. In its 34th year, the Spotlight on Art Artists Market has grown from a small fundraiser into a major event in the Southeast and the art world.

“We are honored to have some of our top selling artists from around the southeast providing works for sale at our spectacular new Preview Gallery at Neiman Marcus Lenox Square,” says Spotlight on Art 2015 chair Molly Jamieson. “The dynamic array of pieces will satisfy all tastes, from a beautiful Melissa Payne Baker angel ornament to a grand patriotic Steve Penley painting. We are thrilled to have artists who show all over the world provide us with pieces for our Preview Gallery at Neimans, which will be open to the public November 2014 through January 2015. Thank you, to Neiman Marcus for hosting this Gallery, and thank you, to our artists for participating in the 2014-15 Spotlight on Art Season.”
