Upcoming ‘Queer Art Showcase’ will feature work from 5 Atlanta artists

An art showcase that features queer-identified artists will be held in Atlanta later this month.  

The event was put together by married couple Cameron Lee and  Rigel Gemini “to elevate local queer artists, promote creativity in Atlanta and engage millennials in the art scene,” a press release said. The duo recently moved to the city from Los Angeles.  

“Spectra: Atlanta Queer Art Showcase” will include work from Lee and four artists chosen by him: Jon Dean, LaRue Caillet, Savana Ogburn and Taylor Alexander. The local artists will earn 100 percent commission on any sales.
