Wassily Kandinsky’s birthday is celebrated at Modernnow.


Often called the “Father of Abstract Art,” Kandinsky trained as a lawyer in his native Russia, but discovered his true calling was in art. He and his wife moved to Germany, where he studied art while Mrs. Kandinsky filed for divorce. He went on to found the group Der Blaue Reiter and taught at the Bauhaus, always writing prolifically on the connections between art, music and spirituality (and found time to marry again). Much of his work was destroyed, as “degenerate,” by the Nazi party.

Located in the vibrant artist community of Studioplex and adjacent to the impecable Serpas Restaurant, Modern Now Gallery is a rare find in the Atlanta Art Scene. Their collection ranges from thousands of rare art & architecture antiquarian books (including hard to find journals) to a wide range of artworks that span from local fringe to established Atlantan artists as well as a wide range of Modern Masters; that price from the affordably decorative to the impossibly rare. If you are visiting Atlanta or are a member of the community, you should stop by and experience the culture and the fresh perspective they have of contextualizing the old with the new, the established with the fresh, and the proven with the experimental.
