A range of mediums from a variety of queer artists will be on display Sunday during the second show from Atlanta’s Queer Underground Artists’ Society at Bellissima.

Their pieces represent a range of artistic mediums, such as acrylic painting, photography, jewelry, metal pieces, furniture, stained glass and mosaics.

At the AQUAS show, artists will display and sell their art. Meier says the show will provide “a spectacular gathering that you don’t want to miss.”
