Bill Lowe Gallery, artist Tom Swanston, & the Peachtree Pointe Lobbies

It's what you should do; it's what architecture tourists want: put art galleries in great lobbies so the view changes from time to time. Building managers should do it rent free for vignettes like these featuring artist Lita Cabellut.

So it is with Bill Lowe Gallery in Two Peachtree Pointe. Peachtree Pointe by Smallwood, Reynolds, Stewart, Stewart & Associates, Inc. is a prominent terminal vista for Peachtree at Pershing Point - two curvy buildings that look like one. They are between WSB and The Temple in the Peachtree Street jumble.

Bill likes the birds which is no surprise once you see Tom Swanston's flocks of shiny silver and gold birds.

Mr. Lowe told me he'd designed the gallery for exploration. Up one balcony I found polar bears.
