2020 AHSAE Satellite Show

We will choose 165 works for the main show to be showcased at the Atlanta Dogwood Festival. Because of the numerous high quality submissions from participating schools, we will include more schools and students this year.  The jurors will also select a Satellite Show to be displayed in the Limelight Gallery at Binders Art on Piedmont Road in Buckhead.

One of our longtime sponsors, Binders Art Supplies and Frames, is sponsoring the official 2020 AHSAE t-shirt again this year. Thank you Binders for supporting our artists and educators for decades. 

About Art Throwdown

How it Started

When Jeff Mather brought the idea to Grady High School's John Brandhorst, senior Perrin Turner (2009) spread the word to his peers and Brandhorst got the ball rolling. The Art Throwdown brings students from high schools across Atlanta to engage in a different kind of art competition.  The next Throwdown happens outdoors, in front of the AHSAE in the Dogwood Festival.

"The idea is to bring high school artists together and really provide a live experience with visual art where friends, family, and the larger community can get a closer look at the creative process. Participating high school artists also get hands-on experience geared towards the next level of artistic expression and learning, whether that means attending college or working in a professional environment."  --Perrin Turner (2009)

Is your school interested in sending a team to the AHSAE/Dogwood scrimmage?

Email John Brandhorst, Throwdown coordinator, to get your school's name on the list:
