The Atlanta Fine Arts League, Inc. was created in 2005 as an artists' collective by a group of Atlanta area professional artists, working in representational genres and multiple mediums to create opportunities for exhibitions, art and business education and to offer opportunities for community service, by bringing awareness and attention to various issues that affect our community as a whole. By sponsoring various arts projects, events and exhibitions designed to enrich the community, our artists are able to give back in unique ways with their art.

AFAL is also an organization dedicated to creating an atmosphere for our professional artists to share ideas, find support and build professional relationships. Dinner discussions, workshops, exhibitions, an online Fourm and an E-News letter are just a few ways the League helps support its members and their careers.

AFAL's other goals are to provide mentoring and offer guidance
to aspiring and emerging young artist.

Our professional artist members include painters, sculptors, print makers
and medical illustrators.
