+ about atlanta film society
Now celebrating a 40-year history, the Atlanta Film Society (ATLFS) is one of the oldest and largest organizations dedicated to the promotion and education of film in the United States. ATLFS aims unite the Atlanta community by serving artists in creative growth and inspiring audiences through the power of the moving image. Enriching the community through screenings, classes, workshops and other events year-round, the chief operation of ATLFS is the Atlanta Film Festival.
In February, 2005 Daren Wang hatched a hare-brained idea to establish a festival celebrating the spoken/written word. He enlisted other dreamers and doers who had hatched versions of the same idea including Tom Bell, Linda Harris, Richard Lenz, Alice Murray, Bill Starr and Judy Turner. Together, using a stone soup model, everyone brought what they had and the magic began brewing.
The AJC Decatur Book Festival is the largest independent book festival in the country and one of the five largest overall.
Join us as we explore the development of such an important festival as well as the career, new book, and musings of Exec. Director & Author, Daren Wang.

Cocktails + Artist Talk, 6pm
*Art Over Dinner will feature a Pop Up Shop featuring a variety of artwork & limited edition goods by Lulie & Raven*
Raven is an abstract and impressionist painter located at Slate Studios in the Cigar Factory in Charleston, South Carolina. Raised on the Gulf Coast, she was inspired and raised around the creative influence of her family’s art gallery, The Zoo Gallery. She has created a lifestyle surrounding her work, thriving on the strength of women, the beauty of imperfection, and the harmony of mental and physical well-being of the figure.
About Lulie Wallace
Majoring in Art at College of Charleston, Lulie Wallace started painting shortly after she graduated. She wants her art to be a challenge, to hopefully evolve for the better, and thinks it is a privilege to be in her studio and to be a part of creating something that she loves. She is attracted to joyful, thoughtful people. She loves bright, vibrant colors and hope that the paintings that she creates have a timelessness about them and are passed down to daughters and granddaughters.

About Melissa Payne Baker
Melissa Payne Baker is best known for her abstract paintings that convey emotions or feelings that touch the viewer. From traditional interiors to contemporary, her abstract artwork creates the perfect punch to any decor. The heart and soul of her work is derived from everyday life and experiences. Melissa spends her days chasing her dreams as well as her young son, both keeping her creativity in full bloom. This Southern artist found her passion for art early in life, learning from generations of artisans. With a degree in Marketing from the University of Mississippi and over two decades in interior design, she pours her experience into each abstract piece she creates.
About Augusta Wilson
Augusta Wilson is interested in art that is both accessible and thought provoking. She wants to bridge the gap between paintings that belong in MOMA and paintings that match your sofa. The best of both worlds is achievable. For as long as she can remember, proper etiquette and design have been her guides. She has a BFA in painting from the University of Georgia and a MFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta. Wilson’s education led to a summer in the hills of Cortona, Italy, a love affair with events and marketing, and a visual language that never tires.
About Huff Harrington Fine Art
What happens when two committed Francophiles, art lovers and design junkies get together over a bottle of red wine? A fine art gallery with a little je ne sais quoi is born, followed a few years later by its home furnishings and décor sibling. Huff Harrington Fine Art was started by Ann Huff & Meg Harrington with a gallery located on a cute and quiet street in Atlanta’s busy Buckhead neighborhood. Over the years, they found that their taste in art struck a chord with clients and they dove into developing collections filled with exciting artists – emerging and established, French and non-French.
