imageAfter weeks of anticipation, a crowd packed the house to see the new Buckhead location at Kai Lin Art. The gay-owned gallery celebrated its move with the Friday opening of “Monsters 2.0.”

The exhibit – Kai Lin’s largest to date – was a fitting housewarming for the bigger, better location. The works of 14 artists came together to add to the gallery’s vision of its original “Monsters” theme show that proved so popular in the former Midtown location. It worked; the gays followed in droves (photos).

Gallery owner Yu-Kai Lin and his staff have been hard at work promoting and preparing the new 4,2000-square foot Streets of Buckhead location since announcing their big plans for a big move, even taking to the airwaves for some 11Alive love last month.

The new space also includes Kai Lin Shop in an effort to expand not just the elbow room, but the bottom line, Lin told Project Q Atlanta.

image“The decision to move from Midtown into Buckhead was a also business decision based upon expanding our space, increasing exposure to a new market, and growing sales volume,” he said in July. “Our focus will remain the same as far as art and events and with the third component being our retail store where shoppers can come and spend time picking up hand crafted jewelry, fashion, books, stationary, decor and gifts.”

“Monsters 2.0” is on display through Oct. 22.
