Virgo is a multi disciplinary group exhibition centered on the origin, mythology, and evolution of the astrological history of Virgo.


The objective is to examine the heroine in an allegorical context with representation of who, and how, they are personified in contemporary culture. Each artist creates their own perception of the narrative presented as an ethnology of meaning.

Please join us for hors d’oeuvres and libations at 1 pm on Saturday, October 1, in celebration of Atlanta Art Week and our inaugural exhibition, Virgo.

About the Gallery


Wolfgang Gallery is a contemporary art gallery in Atlanta, Georgia with a focus on emerging and mid career artists across all mediums.

Wolfgang Gallery aims to not only highlight design, but to bring to Atlanta works that previously have only been seen in major artistic hubs such as Los Angeles and New York.

Our approach is to represent artists with artistic integrity that are on the cutting edge of thecontemporary art world, and striving to bring nuanced perspectives to their medium.

About the Artists


Alison Blickle’s paintings depict women engaged in mysterious ceremonies. Each exhibition is presented as a narrative, exploring powerful female archetypes found in mythology. Blickle’s recent work reimagines ancient myths, setting the stories in our modern world, and weaving their themes into our current social and political happenings. Figures pose in theatrical, choreographed movements, reflecting Alison’s belief that art making is ritual, and that all ritual is performance.

“I’m interested in creating images of women supporting and connecting with one another. I am part of a community of incredible women~ artists, witches, and revolutionaries, and it informs my work big time.”

Blickle has exhibited widely in the United States and Europe, with recent solo exhibitions at Over The Influence in Los Angeles, and Kravets Wehby Gallery in New York. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at MOCA Tucson, Nassau County Museum, Deitch Projects, New York University, The Hole, and Unit London. Alison received an MFA from Hunter College in New York in 2009, and a BFA from California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2006. She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.

Lewinale Havette’s artwork has been featured in exhibitions in museums and galleries in the United States and Europe, including 1-54 Contemporary African Fair in NY, Delphian Gallery in London, UK; Launch F18 in New York, NY; the Masur Museum of Art in Monroe, Louisiana; and The ROOM Contemporary Art Space in Venice, Italy. In addition, she was represented by the Pérez Art Museum Miami at Art Basel Miami.

Adéla Janská is among the female artists who have emerged on the Czech fine arts scene without receiving their schooling at the notorious art centres. The Olomouc-born author studied in Slovakia (Bánská Bystrica), only to return to her home town afterwards. Having graduated from the Academy of Arts in 2009, her first exhibition took place as late as 2013. Yet, in the shadow of the art metropolises, if there even is such a thing in our context, an original painter has developed, one of a unique contentual world and convincing artistic expression. Last year she had her debut exhibition in the USA in her home Gallery “The Something Machine” Adela lives and works in Olomouc, Czech Republic.

Andrea Mary Marshall is a multi-disciplinary artist and fashion designer that lives and works in New York City.

Her artwork focuses on self-portraiture composed of photography, painting, and mixed media and has been shown in solo exhibitions, “Toxic Women” and “Gia Condo,” with Allegra LaViola Gallery, New York, NY and “Sacred/Iconic” and “The Feminist Calendar” with Garis & Hahn, New York, NY.

Additionally, she has participated in the Whitney Art Party, the Creative Time Fall Ball, PULSE Miami, SPRING/Break Art Show and in group exhibitions with Hazan Projects, New York, NY; Eric Firestone Gallery, East Hampton, NY; Alan Koppel Gallery, Chicago, Illinois; Phillips Auction House, New York, NY and the Lady Dior Multimedia Traveling Art Exhibition, commissioned by Dior, LVMH among others.

Her work has been featured in the New York Times, Vogue, W Magazine, ArtInfo and Interview Magazine and is held in international private collections.

In her large-scale oil paintings, Brooklyn-based artist Jay Miriam finds beauty in the mundane. She examines what lies in the ordinary, captivated by the seemingly small moments of life. Miriam’s contemplative practice involves painting from memory, or imagining new worlds from scratch, and through bold mark making and loose brush strokes, creates stories entirely their own. Known for her portrayals of nude feminine figures, Miriam’s subjects exude a playful sense of mystery. Often there are elements to her paintings that would physically be impossible in the real world, however; in the composition Miriam plays with the movement of the eye to convince the viewer these moments feel right. The perception of the viewer is as important to the whole of the painting as the painting itself.

Jay Miriam works with traditional oil techniques, and often paintings take months or up to a year to complete. Born in New York City (Polish-American, 1990) and raised in Brooklyn, Miriam earned a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and an MFA from the New York Academy of Art. Miriam has mounted solo shows in Richter Fine Art, Rome, Italy; Ornis A. Gallery, Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Half Gallery, New York, New York; and Cudowne Lata, Krakow, Poland. Selected group exhibitions include Richter Fine Art, Rome, Italy; Spurs Gallery, Beijing, China; Seasons Gallery, Los Angeles, California; Gruin Gallery, Los Angeles, California; Half Gallery, New York, New York; The Cooper House Gallery, Dublin, Ireland; Garis and Hahn, New York, New York; among others.

Hayley Quentin is a Los Angeles based artist using intuition and technical precision with the goal of merging the intuitive with the analytical (both in the conceptual ideation and reception of her work); using a quiet whisper, a curled finger, to beckon the viewer to linger. Quentin uses colored pencils on canvas in a wholly unique way; essentially painting with pencils using oil glazing techniques, she calls the works of this meticulous process “drawing paintings”. At first glance the eye is seduced with diaphanous color, soft and fuzzy, eliciting the viewer to come closer in an attempt to understand or gain further visual information. The closer one gets, however, the less you’ll be able to see, the pigment dissolving within the texture of the canvas. The work exists in an interstitial space, at the transitional moment where language ends and visuality takes over.

Hayley Quentin attended Otis College of Art and Design, receiving a B.F.A. cum laude in 2008. Quentin’s work has been shown at multiple venues in Los Angeles including Nicodim, the Irvine Fine Arts Center, False Cast Gallery, and Big Pictures Los Angeles. Quentin’s first solo exhibition, Myth, opened in 2019 at Ro2 Art in Dallas, TX. Her work has also been featured in various art publications including Artillery, MATH Magazine (The Art Issue), and Full Blede. She is a current MFA candidate at Otis College of Art and Design, 2023.

Her work has been featured in Anthem, Artforum, Boston Globe, The New York Times, Slate, Vice, Village Voice, Washington Post, among others.
