Get This Gallery Closes Its Doors After 10 Years
July 12, 2014
After ten wonderful and productive years I’ve decided to close the gallery doors. The timing of my decision was to ensure that Get This Gallery ended on a high note, as the gallery was in its best year of business to date. The opportunity to be in the Monroe Drive location for the past year has been fantastic and given us the opportunity to push the program to new heights.

Over the past ten years, the gallery has produced 50 exhibitions and worked with dozens of artists from Atlanta and across the country. The High Museum of Art acquired eight pieces for their permanent collection from Get This Gallery artists over the past three years. The gallery’s most recent highlight was placing a painting by Ben Roosevelt in the collection of Iggy Pop.
Notably, the gallery worked with Mike Brodie, Ben Venom, Bill Daniel, Gyun Hur, Jiha Moon (guest curator), Ben Roosevelt, Andy Moon Wilson, Fahamu Pecou, Matthew Craven, Austin Eddy, Shara Hughes, Harrison Keys, Tommy Nease, Bean Worley, Drew Conrad, Heather McPherson, Stephanie Dowda, Will Oldham, Abby Banks, Rick Froberg, Jill Storthz and William Downs (guest curator), among many others. It was a pleasure to work each and every one of these artists.
Lloyd Benjamin will pursue independent curatorial projects and art consultation through a new business venture, 4th Projects. 4th Projects will not maintain a brick and mortar space, however temporary art exhibitions and events are planned. There is currently a 4th Projects installation on view at the Hyatt Midtown through September 1st featuring works by Scott Ingram, HENSE, Heather Greenway, and Bean Worley. Additionally, 4th Projects is working with Stephanie Dowda on a solo project that will be opening at the exhibition space at the law firm of Arnall Golden Gregory, LLP in late summer.
