The Forward Arts Foundation is pleased to announce Kellie Romany as the winner of the 2016-17 Emerging Artist Award. Her work will be featured in spring of 2017 at the Swan Coach House Gallery. The finalists included in the exhibition are Chris Chambers, Travis Dodd, Rachel Garceau,  and Nick Madden.

This annual award, now in its eighteenth year, is presented to an emerging Atlanta artist — one who has had no major solo show and is not connected with a commercial gallery. The winning artist is selected by a panel who are active participants in the arts community and recognized as experts in their field. The award grants monetary

Support for the winning artist and also provides a venue for a solo exhibition at the Swan Coach House Gallery.
