We celebrate AMPLIFY every October at the Spirits for Spruill event at Spruill Gallery.

In 2020, Spruill Gallery introduced AMPLIFY, an annual creative placemaking project on the Spruill Gallery grounds meant to engage the community through vibrant public art installations and to support working artists and the art economy.  Each year, a national Call to Artists is announced and from that pool of entries, the AMPLIFY artist of the year is chosen. This artist installs their design on the Smoke House wall at the Spruill Gallery and the mural is unveiled at the annual Spirits for Spruill celebration.

This year’s AMPLIFY Artist:

Artist Charity Hamidullah

Charity Hamidullah
Charity Hamidullah is a multi-disciplinary artist who has been living and creating in Atlanta, Georgia since 2011 and a current fellow of The Creatives Project (2023-2024). Her work began as a tattoo artist where she assisted in helping clients honor their identity through body adornment. Her admiration for her community soon transformed her canvas with hopes to inspire and uplift more individuals. Hamidullah utilizes color, figurative and environmental elements to illustrate stories of identity , empowerment, and growth while uniting spaces with the love language of art.
