Nestled among a number of commercial and non-profit art spaces in Atlanta’s Westside Arts District, TWIN KITTENS brings further diversification with its inspiring business approach and aesthetic values. The generous and empowering spirit of TWIN KITTENS is represented by its 0% commission policy, enabling artists to maintain control over the sale of their artworks. As a result, exhibitions at the gallery are ambitious and thought-provoking, often containing an element of risk-taking on the part of the artist and always showing a great deal of artistic consideration. TWIN KITTENS hosts a range of creative programs and community engagement projects throughout the year, aimed at empowering working artists and inspiring the local community alongside innovative exhibitions by local national and international artists such as Kristen Jensen, Ryan Thayer and Anthony Wislar.
