The Visual Art Series at the Rialto is an ongoing collaboration between the Rialto Center and Comer Art Advisory, a visual art consulting firm, and Ernst G. Welch School of Art & Design at Georgia State University. The series transforms the Rialto lobby and mezzanine into an exhibition space for projects organized by Comer Art Advisory. Exhibitions relate to Rialto presentations or city-wide arts initiatives including the Atlanta Film Festival, the National Black Arts Festival, Atlanta Celebrates Photography, and ATLart06.
The exhibits are open to the public during Rialto performances and events, every weekday from 10 AM to 4:30 PM and each month as part of Turner First Thursdays, the artwalk of downtown galleries sponsored by Central Atlanta Progress and Turner.

Drawing Outside the Lines an exhibition by Kevin Archer & Alex Brewer
This exhibition pushes the concept of drawing through traditional media and an unconventional approach. Kevin Archer's continuous lines cause the eye to travel throughout the canvas, while Alex Brewer's works explore free movement to create multiple forms. Both artists bring a fresh perspective to traditional drawing.
