Adams, Ron

Website: http://ronadams.studiopassport.com/
Bio:

The life of Ron Adams has from his youth been inexorably linked to the graphic arts. He studied drawing, technical illustration, and commercial art at a broad range of schools, primairily located in Los Angeles. At the age of 29 he began working at the esteemed graphic workshop, Gemini G.E.L. Beginning his tenure as an assistant printer, Adams soon recieved the honor of Master Printer and the opportunity to work with many leading contemporary artists including: Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Frank Stella, and Ellsworth Kelly. In 1973, he left Los Angeles for Editions Press in San Francisco before moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he opened Hand Graphics, another nationally recognized press. There he collaborated with such artists as Judy Chicago, Luis Jimenez, John Biggers, and Charels White. After thirteen years as owner and director of Hand Graphics, Adams sold the business in 1987 to return exclusively to producing his own art. His expressionistic and physically exaggerated figurative realism gives an almost mythical strength to the common people and narrative situations that he renders so elegantly.

Arliss, Anita

Website: www.anitaarliss.com
Bio:

I capture compelling images from a perspective that is in motion, to reflect a spontaneous event. The pieces are created from many formal processes; after shooting the photographs, I digitally manipulate them and in the final stage, these images become part of the painted surface.  Working in mixed media -  photography, painting, and digital media - is the best combination for my artistic sensibility.  I combine external and invented realities through the layering of variegated techniques. I photograph while I am moving or while the object is moving (or both.) Then I upload images to my computer and, using digital filters, selectively alter the shapes and colors of the image, sometimes pasting sections together from sequential photos.  This manipulated image is then printed on canvas.

The most exciting part for me comes when I paint into the canvas, feeling the experience from memory.  Generally, I apply layers of thick and thin oil paint and glazes. The final result is an artwork appearing both spontaneous and simply made, but actually created from many formal processes and intellectual choices.

Bailey, Radcliffe

Bio:

Atlanta-based artist Radcliffe Bailey was born in New Jersey in 1968. He received a BFA from The Atlanta College of Art, and has grown in national notoriety since then. Much of Bailey's work begins with vintage sepia-tone photographs of African-Americans from decades past; many of which were given to him by his grandmother. Bailey works them into mixed-media collages on wood or canvas that incorporate other found objects and bands of bright color. In 1994 Bailey was invited to participate in Equal Rights & Justice, a group exhibition at the High Museum in Atlanta and in 1997 was included in As Time Goes By: History, Memory, and Sentimentality, a group exhibition at the Stamford, Connecticut branch of New York's Whitney Museum. Bailey’s solo and group exhibitions have been reviewed by numerous publications including The New York Times, ArtNEWS, and Art in America. In a 1996 interview with Vibe Magazine's Kevin Powell, Bailey stated, "I'm like free jazz. I'm not concerned about where I'm going, just as long as I'm moving forward and documenting life." Work by Bailey is on permanent display in Atlanta's Hartsfield International Airport, owned by prominent collector and Georgia resident, Sir Elton John, and included in numerous other collections, including the MOCA GA permanent collection. Bailey was also featured as one of twenty-seven artists in the recent Georgia Council for the Arts publication: “Georgia Masterpieces: Selected Works from Georgia Museums” and the MOCA GA exhibition it inspired, Twenty Georgia Masters.

Barber, LaMar

1999 Glenwood Downs DriveWebsite: lamarbarber.com
Bio:

Working as a storyteller, with color and characters as the text, my work visually articulates oneness. 

The modern attitude of acceptance concerning race, culture and spirituality is commercially revealing itself in America; thus a hot topic of discussion. By capturing America’s story through geometric characters and pulsating colors my work expands this dialogue into American art.

The hope is to act as a continuum of the transcendental concepts implemented by artists of the Harlem Renaissance. My goal, as was theirs, is to go beyond the divides of mankind.

Barton, Elilzabeth

101 Coventry RoadPhone: 706.548.4668Website: www.elizabethbarton.com
Bio:

I make wall hangings from layers of cloth that I have painted or dyed, cut into pieces and reassembled.  It’s like painting with fabric, the benefit of the fabric being that if you don’t like it in one place, you can move it to another. The imagery I depict is related to places I have seen.  I wish to explore the beauty of everyday environments both cityscapes, industrial and rural landscapes.    I want to create a sense of place but also reveal the dynamic bones of the scene.  I enjoy working in series. 

Reflected light, translucency and the effects of time are recurring themes; repeated patterns of natural or architectural forms are a leifmotif.   The aim is to make work that glows with light and is rich with color and nuance; a work in which the unified composition is satisfying, but the details are fascinating.

I was born in York, England, educated in England and U.S.A., obtained a Ph.D  in 1975.  I emigrated to U.S.A. in 1976.  Whilst working in the health service at the University of Georgia, I began to make quilts, focusing on Art Quilts with the encouragement of an NEA grant and acceptance into Quilt National in 1995.

Benjamin, Paul Stephen

562 Lantern Wood DrivePhone: 404.508.4358Website: www.paulsbenjamin.com
Bio:

Paul S. Benjamin creates sculptural works that incorporate found and appropriated objects. The uniform black exteriors cause the shapes to converge and create dynamic abstract forms. The pieces are about rebirth and transformation. In the literal sense, the objects are given new life and transformed into sublime sculptural forms. The works speak about duality: past and future, tragedy and joy, abundance and lack. The objects are used as symbols that represent historical and personal events. Paul has been commissioned by the City of Chicago Percent for the Art Fund. He has also received numerous private commissions.

Berroa, Felix

Bio:

"I began drawing and carving wood and common stones during my childhood in the 50s. From the beginning, it was faces, the human figure, self-portraits, or just a pretty girl who would catch my eye.

My later work had been realistic, but during the last stage of my studies at the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, in the Dominican Republic, my work began to transform into what it is today.

My ability was forged by a team of some of the most recognized artists of the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico.

In my art, “the lines” wish to be seen in order to more definitely mark the 'expressions' of our joy, dreams, and suffering. The idea of those 'small lines' was taken primarily from my work as an etcher. By observing the Old Masters of that discipline (Durer, Rembrandt, and others), I assimilated the sort of line that they used to achieve volume and shadow in their forms. I adapted to enhance the expressions, not only in the faces of my characters, but in their bodies.

My characters are mostly women and children because I dedicate my attention to those human beings considered in the society as "weakest". They are actually the most tender and beautiful, the givers and receivers of life.

Bio:

From the moment I found out that I couldn't be King of America, being a photographer went from second on my list to first. It's been first ever since. By taking a photograph, the present becomes the past and leaves a visual record. It is the only way I know to stop and freeze a moment in time that can never be changed or erased. It still feels like magic.

In high school, I did all the things that any budding photographer would do, like yearbook and school paper photo's. At 5' 8, I was too short and skinny for any sport other than wrestling. Since World Championship Wrestling had yet to be invented and Ted Turner had never even heard my name, photographing sporting events was the closest I would ever come to being a super jock. It had to do. After high school, I went to The Rochester Institute of Technology, where I got my degree. Since RIT was strong on technology and weak on sports, the only teams they ever played were neighboring high schools and nobody had any interest in my recording their crushing defeats. At this point, even I could have cared less about the Yearbook.

The school was very expensive, and being paid to repair bowling pin machines at the alley put cash in my pocket and became much more important. That is where I meet my wife to be. We got married and moved to Atlanta. I got my first job at a small photo lab, doing processing and printing. After working there for a couple of years, I left and went to work at a small photography studio, and remained there until they went belly-up five years later. At that point, I hung up my shingle and have worked on my own ever since. I have branched out into other areas, like digital photography, and use the Nikon D1x system. I do large format stuff as well. I continue to do trade shows, pr and studio work. My personal work consists of large format nature stuff and whenever time permits, I head for the hills to do just that.

Bright, Sheila Pree

Website: www.sheilapreebright.com
Bio:

Sheila Pree Bright is a Fine Art Photographer who is known for her photographic series Young Americans, Plastic Bodies and Suburbia.  Her large-scale works combines a wide ranging knowledge of contemporary culture, addressing commentary on American beauty standards, Patriotism and portrayals of urban and suburban themes.  Recently, Bright took the Young Americans portraits to the streets of Art Basel Miami this past December, wheat pasting eleven images in the Coconut Grove neighborhood on building and abandon homes that are often unnoticed in the urban landscape.  Bright revisits the series which exhibited as a solo show at the High Museum of Atlanta in 2008, curated by Julian Cox, Founding Curator of Photography and Chief Curator of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. The work examines attitudes and values of Generation Y as American citizens. The series shows diverse young Americans, who are new to the voting system, and exploring ideas of what it means to be American. The sitters expressed their perspectives in a statement and posed in their chosen stance with the American flag.

With much success of launching her wall portraits in Miami, she is traveling the series to other cities in 2013.  Bright states, “I want to engage with communities nationally after observing the major divide during the most recent Presidential election. I am passionate about re-framing these images by giving communities an open forum and empowerment." Bright's goal is to encourage public engagement and to create dialogue about being an American in the 21st century.

 Bright has also been in exhibitions at the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum in Washington, D.C., the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Cleveland, Time Inc, NY, US Contemporary Photography, FotoFest in Houston and the Leica Gallery in New York.  She has been featured in numerous publications, the recipient of numerous awards and in private and public collections to name a few; Library of Congress, Washington DC, High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA,  de Saisset Museum, Santa Clara, CA, Oppenheimer Collection: Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland, KS, Sprint PCS Art Collection, Overland, KS and the Paul Jones Collection, Birmingham, AL.

Brown, Annette

Website: www.annettebrownphotography.com
Bio:

Atlanta, based artist and photographer, Annette Brown, refers to her work as an
unspoken conversation with her subjects. Annette seeks to create an emotive
experience for the viewer through her imagery by capturing a spiritual synapse
between herself and her subject in harmonious synchronicity with the opening
and closing of her camera's shutter. "My camera is in essence my eyes
peaking into the souls of my subjects, reflecting light from their spirit and
recording a visual symphony of the soul, the silent music of their lives."
The ability to open dialogue is her primary intention. In this vein, the work seeks
to transcend the physical through the interconnectedness of artist and subject
transforming energy to imagery, establishing an unspoken conversation with
the viewer.


Annette's work has been on exhibit at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles,
The Composition Gallery in Atlanta, The Tubman Museum in Macon, and at
The Mobile Museum of Art. Her work has appeared in Rolling Stone, Vintage
Guitar, Vogue, Vibe, Blender, on MTV Networks, Larry King Live, and in the
publication entitled In Concert, Photographs by Annette Brown. She has also
lived and worked as a photographer in London, England, and has traveled
extensively in Europe and the USA.

Brown, Stacey

Website: www.sbrownart.com
Bio:

Artist Stacey Brown, currently residing in Atlanta, Georgia offers an eclectic collection of original paintings for the contemporary art lover. Born and reared in Murfreesboro, North Carolina, his artistic journey of discovery began with aspirations for a career in graphic design. After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, he embarked on a successful ten year career in his chosen field, but something was "missing" in his life.

That something "missing" drew him to his paint brush, and he decided to pursue his true love, fine art. His passion for the arts has led him to a successful career as a full-time artist, expressing himself through acrylic paintings on glass, and watercolor on paper.  He remains visually aware of his surroundings by incorporating colors that correspond with current contemporary trends, as well as remaining in tune with his roots with traditional landscapes, and urban neighborhood scenes that exude keen observations of everyday life.

Discriminating art lovers throughout the country and abroad collect his eclectic and contemporary creations, which has led him to emerge as a visionary artistic talent for the 21st century.

Bruehmueller, Dagmar

Website: dagmar@Bruehmueller.com
Bio:

The composition of my paintings comes from my background, which is rooted in the rich culture of Brazil.

In my art, I create balance between serenity and the strength of independence.
Serenity is reflected in the use of circular harmony and warm rich tones.
Independence is represented by the use of brilliant contrast and division of space.
Within this balance flows a sensual tension from my subtle fusion of strength and femininity.

My creations are ordered through the impact of specific moments that I find awesome and profound.  I infuse my work with the responsibility and positivism that I see and feel in the world.

Cantrell, Kimmy

Website: http://www.kimart.com/
Bio:

Kimmy Cantrell is an artist living and working in College Park, Georgia. Largely self-taught, Kimmy discovered his artistic vision in high school. His art teacher, Curtis Patterson, now at the Atlanta College of Art, admired his command of clay. Kimmy’s first piece, a clay vase, landed on display at the Atlanta Board of Education Building. Still, he never considered making art his livelihood. Instead, he studied business administration at Georgia State University and spent 12 years in distribution management. In 1991, he left College Park to accept a job in rural south Georgia. There, after almost 20 years, his life came full circle. “I just decided one day that it was time to reconnect with the clay, so I picked up some, and sculpted a vase.” Kimmy’s vases evolved into bowls, and he hasn’t stopped creating since. Kimmy enjoys developing fresh variations on four recurring themes: faces, still life, fish and the female anatomy. Kimmy uses still life collages of clay and metal to tell his story. He uses asymmetry to challenge traditional definitions of beauty. “I want to show the beauty within flaws,” he explains. “Imperfections tell stories that are far more compelling than perfection.” Through his fragmented watermelon, flowers, and fish, for instance, he recounts fond childhood memories of cooking, gardening, and fishing with his grandmother. Kimmy’s vibrantly colored faces tell stories too. “I manipulate the shape and position of the eyes to express a range of emotions” he remarked.

His work has been exhibited at galleries, festivals, and museums internationally, including The New York Art Expo; The Clay Studio, Philadelphia; Ohio Craft Museum; Gallery Gora, Montreal; North Carolina Central University Museum; Quinlan Visual Arts Center, Gainsville; Kubatana Modern Art Gallery, Atlanta. Festival awards include: Columbus Arts Festival, Columbus, Ohio; Port Clinton Arts Festival, Chicago, Illinois; Dogwood Festival, Atlanta, Georgia; Sausalito Arts Festival, Sausalito, California; JazzFest, New Orleans, Louisiana; The Plaza, Kansas City, Missouri. He has also appeared on FOX TV’s Good Day Atlanta and in regional and national publications, such as Art & Antiques Magazine, Images and The Washington Post Magazine. Creative Loafing art critic Donald Locke has compared him to renowned artist Thornton Dial. Kimmy’s work is represented in private and public collections across the United States and abroad including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, England, Australia, and Italy.

In 2012, Kimmy was commissioned by the Coweta County Library System to develop an exhibit for the opening of the Senoia library. Currently, Kimmy is working on a commission for the Fulton County Arts Council which will be exhibited at the Adamsville Health Center in December 2013.

Carpenter, Philip

506 Midtown Place NEPhone: 404.874.6469Website: www.marciawoodgallery.com
Bio:

For Philip Carpenter making color pencil drawings replaced painting ten years ago, but the processes are similar in that each drawing requires its own painterly invention to describe new surfaces and to create effective illusions. In the drawings Philip has moved from singular portraits of ordinary things (tools, flowers, toys) to images combining his interests in the prosaic and the precious—trash and treasure. He continues to use dolls and action figures acquired by rummaging through thrift store refuse—his ongoing backdoor survey of our disposable culture. But these figures are alien to him —he doesn’t watch television and he’s never been to Disney World. Previous to using them in his work he had studiously insulated myself from such and he finds his outsider’s detachment an advantage in selecting the objects. Philip pairs these pop culture icons with facsimiles of traditional works of art, with both depicted actual size as often as possible. Employing a knack for mimicry developed copying paintings to demonstrate techniques to his students, Philip meticulously renders the objects and the facsimiles as his way of knowing them fully. Each combination is developed intuitively and individually. They are alike in obvious ways but often centuries apart. Fine Art encounters popular culture; the ideal meets mockery. Other combinations are less pointed, more poetic, and inexplicably (in)appropriate.

Chandler, Gordon

Bio:

Originally from Massachusetts, Chandler came to Georgia after receiving his BFA in Sculpture from Syracuse University in 1975.

For ten years, Gordon developed his skills as a welder, did product design and all the while outfitted his Lee Street studio. 

In 1985 he was invited to exhibit at the Piedmont Arts Festival, and gained the attention of several Atlanta galleries with his unique and colorful steel furniture and began exhibiting in Atlanta.  In 1989, Chandler won “Best of Show” at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival and as a result, began exhibiting with the Ann Nathan Gallery in Chicago.

While Chandler was originally recognized for his functional pieces, his work now includes more sculptural work, such as kimonos fashioned from steel drums, larger than life figurative works, as well as other objects inspired by traditional Southern collectibles. Chandler has been broadening his repertoire to include steel trophy deer heads and quilts. The astounding diversity of his pieces, largely constructed from reclaimed welded steel, demonstrates Chandler’s expansive knowledge of his materials and the possibilities they present.

Chandler received his Masters Degree in sculpture in 1997 in order to teach college level art programs.  He has taught at Umass Amherst, University of West Georgia and is currently teaching Art Appreciation to non-majors.

He is currently represented by Ann Nathan Gallery in Chicago, Rymer Gallery in Nashville TN, Leslie Ferrin Gallery in Pittsfield, MA, the Lois Lambert Gallery in Santa Monica, CA, and Twist Gallery in Portland, OR and Seattle, WA.

Bio:

I find the force and beauty of the creative process to be compelling. It is vital to my existence.  While creating a mixed-media painting, spirit and intuition guide while my hands mindfully follow. This is an intensely satisfying experience.  I’ve always been curious and creative.  In my studio I get to explore my deepest thoughts and emotions through the experience of painting.  Understanding and beauty emerge as I am creating.  This process is equally additive and subtractive.  I often cover then uncover. For example, I layer my substrate with hand-made papers, altered mass media, drawings, photos, fabric, found objects, etc. Then I add layers of wax and/or acrylic paint, glazes, gel medium-encased sand, seeds and ephemera.  Lastly, I remove through scraping, sanding and sometimes even burning with a blow torch.  These processes are repeated many times.  As I am adding layers I prayerfully contemplate life.  As I remove layers clarity surfaces.    My mixed-media paintings are personal narratives that give voice to my thoughts and curiosities. Although I am often timid in expressing myself verbally, I am not the least bit afraid to honestly express through my creations. I thank God for this gift of expression.

Chrisman, Edward

Website: www.edwardchrisman.com
Bio:

I was born in Chicago in 1950 and raised in Greenville, South Carolina from the age of one. After my discharge from the Navy, I received my BFA from the Atlanta College of Art. Since then, I have been a full-time artist with an independent studio in Atlanta. My work has been exhibited in the Southeast.

The majority of my sculptures are in private collections with the exception of two large-scale steel pieces in the Smith-Gilbert Arboretum in Kennesaw, Georgia.

My work is primarily derived from found materials which I combine to represent organic objects and movement. I honed my planning, production and installation techniques at Colonial Forge which served as a solid background for creating complex, large-scale, steel objects into works of art with a professional finish.

I have had the opportunity to travel extensively in the U.S., Canada, China and Europe and have found inspiration in the foreign landscapes, particularly China. I have been married for 34 years and have two adult daughters. I am a musician (bass guitar) and enjoy the outdoors.

Bio:

Zachary Coffin (b.1968) Started making art as a photographer. Hired by the Fulton County Daily Report immediately after high high school, he spent 3 years working as a daily photojournalist. Most of the time taking pictures of lawyers at law firms, but also finding himself on the floor of the Democratic Convention in 1988 and on the scene of a federal prison riot before being of legal drinking age. He moved to New York City after being accepted to the Cooper Union and graduated with a BFA in 1993. His thesis project at Cooper was a huge human powered wing flapping machine shown at Socrates Sculpture Park. This project earned him a 15 month artist-in-residence position at the park and taught him to simplify the mechanics.

Bio:

When I turned eighteen years old, my grandfather stressed the importance of voting by taking me to a tree where he was told that African-Americans were lynched by their neckties on their way to vote.  The experience left a profound impression in my mind.

While evolving from a more expressionistic place to one of abstraction, the tie has also evolved.  Since 1992, I have deeply explored the interplay between color and music, particularly influenced by the musical art forms born out of African American culture: such as Jazz music, R&B, Hip-Hop, Gospel, and Blues.  Additionally, my journey has led me to the incorporation of other idioms and symbols that go beyond American existence.

I use my public art making opportunity to supply a missing piece in a given situation. By careful observation of the environment and the people who use it, I find something the people need, and do it. Something that enhances the surroundings and makes them feel more ownership of the space, something that makes them smile and lighten their feet.

limitlessness in the seemingly binary. Drawing repeatedly allows me to fully understand
objects in space, while defining and redefining my own racial landscape.
For me, racial identity has neither been instantly formed nor conjured in isolation. Rather,
identity entangles memory: actual and revisited, cultural and historical, individual and
collective. Through the dissolution of dichotomies and the combination of objects, this
work recalls moments in the formation of my racial identity as Black and Biracial. And
each re-worked mark is yet another attempt to navigate the binary paradigm of race in the
American South by grasping invisible limitations and grounding myself within the
collective African American visual narrative.

Whether black paper drawings, chalkboard erasures or layered vellum paintings, my
work continues to evoke a longing for what author Rebecca Walker refers to as “a
memory that can remind me at all times of who I definitely am…the black outline around
my body that everyone else seems to have.”

Condon, Christopher

Website: www.chriscondonsculpture.com
Bio:

I believe in the importance and reward of community involvement in public artwork, before and during the creation process. With my style of intimate and approachable work that has the community and location in mind, I can create lasting, meaningful, site specific results. This allows for the artwork to be part of the site, and for the community to interact with the art rather than just live with it, hopefully creating ownership of the work. My work is often a whimsical take on observations of flora and fauna seen through my invention. Whether silly narratives or curious depictions, I hope to ignite stories that make the viewer more aware of their surroundings.

Bio:

Jeannine Cook uses her art to celebrate nature and history in many different contexts, both for public art and private collections.  Her background in communications and languages has made her able to listen closely to both the human and environmental voices that then infuse her art. Living in many countries has also helped her become more aware of the need to celebrate the environment that connects us all and protect it intelligently.  Her media, watercolors, silverpoint and graphite drawing, lend themselves to many different subjects, from the bold and luminously brilliant paintings to the subtle and shimmering silver drawings.

The recipient of many Artist Residency awards nationally and overseas, Jeannine has also executed various large commissions in recent years, including a series of paintings for the clubhouse of a large coastal golf course development.  She has recently co-curated a large metalpoint survey for the Evansville Museum of Arts, Evansville, IN. and is currently involved in other similar exhibitions.  She has also working on two large private commissions in coastal Georgia.

Coughlin, BJ

Website: www.bjcoughlin.com
Bio:

The focus of my sculpture is in the grace of the human figure, whether in repose or involved in daily activity. My inspiration comes from an observed gesture or the dignity of a figure at work....and always through the simple beauty of the human form.

The majority of my work is classic figurative and portraiture, although I am equally comfortable capturing the graceful images and natural activities of birds and animals.

Nature. It is omnipresent, no matter where you live or where life may take you. It is stunning in its variety, from oceans to deserts, always providing a sense of wonder and appreciation for anyone willing to open their eyes and take it all in. For me, identification with the natural world goes beyond respect. It is more about a sense of oneness, concordance, and continuity. My connection to the natural world is a theme found throughout my body of work.

Crawford, Andrew T

Website: www.ironisking.com
Bio:

Andrew Crawford was born in Chatham, New Jersey in 1970. He moved to Atlanta with his parents and two older brothers in 1971. Crawford’s youthful artistic endeavors included works in clay, drawing, and music. Andrew’s grandmother, recognizing his enthusiasm, encouraged him along with his parents who allowed him to set up a workshop in his home.

Crawford attended the Rhode Island School of Design where he studied sculpture. After graduating in 1993, he returned to Atlanta and opened his workshop and studio, the Andrew T Crawford Ironworks. His goal was to create functional objects with an emphasis on blacksmithing. As Crawford built his business and his clientele, he continued to receive attention for his unique ornamental gates. This format has consistently been an identifiable trait throughout his career.

Along with dozens of private commissions, Crawford has created ironwork and sculpture for schools, businesses, and municipalities. Some of his most prominent works have been for the Atlanta Botanical Garden, the Federal Reserve Bank, and the City of Washington D.C. His works are also among the collections of several American museums.

Crawford currently employs three full-time craftsmen who collaborate with him in making sculpture and functional objects of original design. He and Elizabeth Sears married in 1998 and live in a small in-town neighborhood with their two young children.

Crean, Eilis

Website: http://eiliscrean.com/home.html
Bio:

My work is embedded in introspection and interpretation of my personal experience and the transformation of that through the act of painting. Contemplation, phenomenological being, cultural picturing and the presence of witness are key components as I seek to create work that connects with spiritual, concrete, psychological, sociological and personal aspects of my life.

Portraiture is simultaneously present and separate. As descriptive and meta-narrative, it gathers memory and history in a mediated exchange between two people proxy to the experience of direct encounter. Painting is an impulse for documentation of gesture as primal communication in the stage of cultural narrative. These sequence portraits reference time as the temporal backdrop to experience.

Crimmons, Jaynie

Website: http://jayniecrimmins.com/
Bio:

My work is about the minutiae of domestic life. Shredded household texts are the vehicle I use to explore these matters in content, context and process.

Shredding household papers [catalogues, letters, financial statements, solicitations, etc.] then recontextualizing these shreds by meticulously sewing them together - honors the daily preoccupations frequently dismissed as trivial and the repetitive tasks traditionally associated with ‘women’s work’.

Informed by the intricacies of our daily existence, my work embodies these details and systematizes them by using topographic maps as a visual model. Using sewn paper shreds as a medium to draw, paint and sculpt, I employ contour lines that connect but do not intersect. My self-imposed rules and obsessive process appear rigid and mindless. Yet, this practice allows for an examination into the meaning inherent in my mundane materials.

The imagery produced references natural and human formations and can be viewed as microscopic or as aerial. For me, examining the world microscopically helps identify and navigate specifics. Observing the world from an aerial perspective helps visualize the external world.

The interaction between the materials, process and resulting forms reveals that focusing on domestic minutiae embraces a linear narrative while investigating the implications of domestic minutiae can create a critical lens and a personal frame of reference.

de La Rosa, Frances

Bio:

Frances de La Rosa received her MFA from Tulane University in 1984. Presently, she is the Comer Professor of Painting at Wesleyan College in Macon, Georgia. In 1985, she married Peruvian artist/photographer, Fernando La Rosa. Since 1998 they have lived in Macon, Georgia and have a second home in Lima, Peru.

In 1984 she was awarded an Artist’s Residency at Altos de Chavon in the Dominican Republic. In 1997 she received a Ford Foundation/Faculty Development Grant to research colonial art and architecture in Mexico, and in 1990, she received a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts/Southern Arts Federation. She has been the recipient of grants from both the Alabama State Council on the Arts (’96, ’97 & ’99), the Georgia Council for the Arts (’88), and the Fulton County (Atlanta, GA) Arts Council (’88). Several of these grants were applied to mural painting projects conducted by the artist with underserved school children in Alabama.

Her work as an artist has been the subject of three documentary films, “Coat of Many Colors: A Tapestry of Alabama Artists” (2001), “Landscape and Time: the Art of Frances de La Rosa” (2002), and “Voices Rising: Alabama Female Artists at the Millennium” (2001). In 2010 she had a solo exhibition of her paintings at the Instituto Cultural Peruano Norteamericano in Lima, Peru. She is represented by Sandler Hudson Gallery in Atlanta, Georgia.

She has traveled extensively in Mexico, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, and Peru. Her paintings have been influenced by her travels in these countries, and by her study of Pre-Columbian and contemporary art from Latin America and the Caribbean.

Her work in silver jewelry making was greatly inspired by the traditions of Mexican jewelry designs, particularly the stylizations of plant forms.

Defoor, Elyse

Website: www.elysedefoor.com
Bio:

Elyse Defoor is a multi-disciplinary artist who is inspired by a person’s
connection to their inner spirit and unconscious world. From this passionate
inspiration, she produces artwork that can be both bold and mysterious yet
often playful. Her drawings, paintings, photography and large scale installations
have gained international recognition and national exposure. Defoor’s original
art and archival reproductions can be found in numerous corporate and private
collections globally.

In 2008, Defoor’s series “X.U.ME” was presented as a solo exhibition at
the Alexandria Museum of Art in Louisiana. X.U.ME is Defoor’s visual
response to having seen the Xs marked across the New Orleans landscape.
Works from X.U.ME and a site specific exterior installation were featured
at the Spruill Gallery, Atlanta, to commemorate the fifth anniversary of
Katrina in August 2010. In addition to an interview with NBC on Weekend
Today, a PBS special was later created in October, 2010 about Defoor
and X.U.ME.

In February 2010, Defoor’s solo exhibit at the Wm Turner Gallery in Atlanta

Delsarte, Louis

Website: www.louisdelsarte.net
Bio:

Louis Delsarte was a figurative artist whose work reflected a departure from the realist style that was predominant among many of the African-American artists during the first half of the twentieth century. His multi-layered works have been described as illusionistic and myth-like, often crossing over into the world of abstraction. Delsarte's work was held at The Studio Museum in Harlem and at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. His work has also been exhibited in galleries throughout the United States and Europe, including the Schomberg Center in New York and the Howard University Fine Arts Gallery.

Delsarte has executed a number of public commissions since 1967. His most significant public work, a colorful 120 foot mosaic tile mural, can be viewed at the Church Avenue subway station in Brooklyn, New York. In 2001 Delsarte's work was chosen to be included in the traveling exhibit, When the Spirit Moves: African-American Dance in History and Art. The last stop for the national tour was the Smithsonian's Arts and Industries Building. Demonstrating the roots and evolution of African-American dance forms, the exhibit included a visual arts section, African American Art Inspired by Dance, which was curated by art historian Samella Lewis. Other artists featured in this exhibit included Romare Bearden, Howardina Pindell, Palmer Hayden, Archibald Motley, and Elizabeth Catlett. Delsarte’s work can be found in many public and private collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Corcoran Museum of Art, the Fort Lauderdale Museum, and the Kansas City Art Museum.
Louis Delsarte was born in Brooklyn on September 1, 1944. He grew up and went to school in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn. He earned a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY in 1967. He is currently a tenured Professor of Art at Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA.

DeMent, Katy

949 Berne Street SEPhone: 404-627-2209
Bio:

“New into old, old into new, I’m weaving together remnants of the past and present to preserve the rich textures of life for the future”.

All DeMent’s works are created out of handmade papers she has made from locally gathered materials. Her 2-D imagery includes cast paper quilts, paper clothing and heirloom collage, whilst her 3-D work is more functional and includes waxed paper, wall sconces and lampshades that balance on lamps made of old tools that she welds and wires herself.

Ms. DeMent has been making her living as a full-time papermaker and teacher for over 20 years. Her work is found in galleries and museums worldwide and has been featured on HGTV’s “Crafters Coast to Coast”. DeMent was an Art major at Georgia State University but is self-taught in papermaking, welding, sewing and other crafts.

She has been obsessively creative all her life; she used to arrange her toys into color wheels, sew high fashion doll clothes, and make sandcastles. Her early creative leanings also included a love of clay inspired by her older cousin, Sue, who is a professional potter. DeMent’s father was an architect and would let her use his templates to design Frank Lloyd Wright style doll houses. Katy spent her high school and college years working at a fabric store where she not only learned what geometry was for, but how to make costumes for bands, dancers and wrestlers.

Dillon, Michael

Website: www.dillonforge.com
Bio:

Dillon Forge :: is a blacksmith shop owned and operated by Michael Dillon, located in Crabapple, Georgia - just north of Atlanta.

Michael has more than twenty years’ experience producing both functional and non-representational metal sculptures. He creates railings, furniture, and sculpture primarily forged from iron. He also works with bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, and carved stone. As a graduate of Kansas City Art Institute, his methods stem from a strong background in fine art sculpture with an emphasis on design. He has worked with people from many different backgrounds, from building very personal memorial sculptures for Hospice Atlanta to large commercial projects, such as the Arthur Blank Family Foundation monumental stair and public sculpture for the city of Charlotte, NC.

"My goal is to create a visual dialogue with each client that will result in highly crafted works of art. I enjoy the collaborative process and feel that the ongoing exchange with architects, clients and builders enhance and strengthen my work." Throughout a project, Michael generates concept drawings, scale drawings and sample models to further the understanding of the project for both the artist and the client.

The ability to create works of art from two genres, the functional and sculptural, offers endless possibilities to strengthen and enhance a space. They relate in the very nature of their creation. "Heating metal red hot allows me to control the material in its briefly malleable state to create fluid and graceful structures."

Using large industrial forging hammers, Michael imparts power and force onto the surface of the material, captured for a life span of centuries. The functional work is integrated into the architecture, being attentive to the design and scope of the project. Sculptural work becomes part of an interior or exterior landscape, interacting with its environment; the light, weather and human activity. It can be a powerful controlling essence of a large-scale kinetic sculpture embracing its environment or a simple table top adornment. Often the lines between function and sculpture are blurred.

Dongoski, Craig

Bio:

I am an artist working in multimedia technology while rooting it in the conventional practice of drawing. My work derives from investigations into the grey area between drawing and writing. The physical action of both practices has been a source of compelling curiosity for me. The relationship of the spoken and written word has led me to explore the connection between the drawn mark and the sound produced while inscribing.

The execution rate of these drawings is exceptionally slow. Visually and conceptually they are connected to and assimilate with geological time and sound waves. My working method is inverted: rather than responding to a sound that yields a pictorial result, I am responding to a visual (line) that yields a spectrographic result. I also see these works as internal expressions. The slow and obsessive nature of the process literally places me within the work at a microscopic (microphonic) vantage point.

Dorsey , Najee

Website: www.najeedorsey.com
Bio:

Najee Dorsey is a self-taught figurative artist with a broad following particularly in the South. A native of Arkansas with roots in Louisiana, Dorsey draws intimately on his recollections of life in the deltas for his brightly colored mixed media paintings and sculptures. His rich compositions are compelling vignettes of Southern life populated with blues musicians and jook joints, sharecroppers and striving middle-class families, matriarchs and patriarchs, athletes and children.

Dorsey started painting at the age of 5 and sold sold his paintings to his encouraging mother to buy candy. He earned a partial scholarship to the Memphis Academy of Art, but was forced to drop out because he could not afford it. In 2005 he made the decision to commit himself to making art full-time. In the years since Dorsey has has some 17 solo show and participated in a number of group exhibitions.

Dorsey has been the recipient of awards that include a 2006 Patrons Purchase Award from the Polk Museum of Art in GA. Public collections of his work include the African American Museum in Dallas, TX; the Marietta Museum of Art, FL; and Liberty Bank and Trust Company in New Orleans, LA. His work can also be found in a number of private collections.

Drennen, Craig

Website: http://craigdrennen.com
Bio:

From 2002 until 2007 I made drawings, paintings, multiples, performances and audio works based on the failed 1984 movie Supergirl. I saw the movie once.

Since 2008 I've organized my studio practice around Timon of Athens, a play written by William Shakespeare between 1605 and 1608. It is considered to be Shakespeare’s most difficult and obscure work, and is the only one of his plays not performed in his lifetime. I don't valorize failure in my work. Rather, failed projects provide me with empty cultural bandwidth within which to house my own subjectivity.

I am proceeding through the dramatis personae beginning with the minor characters. For each character I produce a distinct series of works based on contemporary associations it suggests. The final result will be a body of related works comprised of separately considered parts.

Old characters may continue while new characters are added. Any combination of characters can be exhibited together at any time. The exhibition environment becomes a “stage” wherein the characters must visually and conceptually interact.

Ehlke, Meilin

Website: www.meilinehlke.com
Bio:

To look at a painting by Meilin Ehlke is to witness a moment where passion and emotion have evolved into physical manifestation.  This is the essence of Meilin’s work---the ability to translate a moment of utter pretentious abandonment into a tangible artistic reverie.  Touch, feel, allow your senses to come alive as you witness her work; she creates with this purpose in mind. Her art, whether colorful layered paintings in mixed media of oil, acrylic, and textured papers, or landscape architectural designs with eastern Asian or African influence, Meilin creates with the sole purpose of making the spectator feel. 

Meilin fell in love with art as a child, studying copiously at her mother’s request.  Yet while painting is now one of her greatest loves, landscape architect was her first.  As a child, she could frequently be found gardening alongside her mother at their home in Germany.  The love affair intensified after several trips to France and Italy introduced her to breathtaking garden rooms from the eras of Louis XIV and the Baroque period.  Bold colors of reds, oranges, bright greens and violets littered these landscapes and presented a more visually stimulating experience than the grey hues common to Germany.  Meilin fell in love with color---a love not fully apparent until she began painting.

Ford, Craig

Website: www.craigfordfineart.com
Bio:

The art I make deals with having grown up at a time within an environment of constant visual information. Pictures become associated with one’s own identity, images take on more than simple, benign representations. These pictures/images are viewed for their surface value but it’s up to the viewer to determine the truth or lies, identity and how it’s experienced.

When an image is removed from its original context, it loses its intended meanings and suggests other things. This representation of reality becomes thin truths or “faux realism.” Art creates a confrontation with the viewer, challenges their assumptions. A photograph, for example, captures a moment in time; a painting invents one of other desires and notions – thus leaving the viewer to decide what the experience is to them.

Gene , Lori

Website: www.lorigene.com
Bio:

My work combines the phenomena of motion, sound, and sight to create an image of the passion that is heard and felt through music.

I often draw in the midst of orchestras, ensembles, and with individual musicians, and my work includes live public performances, from concert stage to small gallery. Through a unique empathy, and a musical sensibility, I merge with musician and instrument, feeling them become the music they play. I also use these abilities to get inside the music itself.

I take this experience to the studio, where line, form, and color are as much properties of sound as of visual art. As I transcend art disciplines, I make images about transcendence. Musicians and instruments often become the music they are playing, or something else entirely.

Overall, my aim is to create an idea of sound through movement and vision in drawings and paintings that most often—but not always—depict one or more musicians in performance. When musicians are depicted, my intention is to create archetypical images for the viewer to identify with, to evoke a musical experience for them. The aesthetic experience of each viewer is, therefore, unique. The result is something new—a drawing or painting that the viewer can hear and feel as well as see.

Gleim, Lisa

3739 Cloudland Dr.Phone: 770.919.7719 Website: www.lisagleim.com
Bio:

A graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Ms. Gleim has been commissioned to paint numerous portraits of children and professionals. She enjoys capturing the personality of the subject as well as their likeness. Ms. Gleim works in various mediums such as charcoal, pastel and oil with pastel being her favorite. Aside from portraiture, Ms. Gleim is also an award-winning landscape artist. She works in pastel, charcoal and oil when painting the landscape, and achieves two very different styles from each medium. She is particularly interested in capturing the beauty of light and how it affects the landscape.

Both her landscapes and portraits can be found in many private collections throughout the East Coast, including the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Orthopaedic Division, the chambers of the Honorable Vice-Chancellor Jack B. Jacobs in Wilmington, Delaware and Astra-Zeneca Pharmaceutical in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Her dog drawings have recently been published in the book Strokes of Genius: The Best of Drawing by Northlight Books. In 2005 Ms. Gleim co founded the Atlanta Fine Arts League as a catalyst for her community project, Art From The Heart, in which local artists are painting the portraits of Georgia’s fallen soldiers free of charge for family members. Gleim has painted three soldiers to date and says it is the “most rewarding experience of her career.” After working and residing in Philadelphia for eight years, Ms. Gleim returned in 2000 to her native home of Atlanta, Georgia.

Greaves , Virginia S.

Website: www.virginiagreaves.com
Bio:

I have been quilting since 2000. Like many other women before me, the challenges in my life led me to find creative exploration in the needle arts. Very quickly, I realized that I was not the kind of quilter to be content with following someone else’s pattern. I studied technique as much as possible and began developing my own work. I was raised by an oil painter and was invited down the same path but found fiber different enough that it could be mine.

Through the progression of years, my work has become more focused on portraits. I find them challenging when portrayed in fabric, both commercial prints and hand dyes, and I delight in finding that little spark in each individual and showing it in my work.

Harshman, Melissa

Website: melissaharshman.com
Bio:

Flea markets, yard sales and antique stores provide my image bank. Eclectic sources such as old cookbooks, dictionaries, memo books and other forms of printed ephemera suggest and inspire new ideas. I am interested in the different ways the juxtaposition of a variety of these recognizable images can be altered in meaning and narration by new combinations and compositions. I use the computer to scan and manipulate this storehouse of images. This allows me to quickly and easily move items, play with transparency and scale, as well as color. The final image is then “brought out of the box” via traditional printmaking or painting methods. My goal is to create images that are aesthetically pleasing and conceptually significant, often playing off the meaning of the chosen images.

Bio:

Active in art pottery since 1975, Helen Helwig studied at Ohio State University and was an assistant at the Arrowmont School for Arts and Crafts. She has been an artist-in-residence numerous times, an art teacher and leads workshops in clay and mosaic techniques. Helwig has participated in juried art fairs for more than 20 years and enjoys the opportunity to share her art work with the public.

More recently, Helen Helwig has created mixed media mosaics and sculptures that combine metal and sculpted clay.  She is currently working on several large-scale commissions and has completed over 40 public art installations for hospitals, libraries, botanical gardens, educational institutions, highway underpasses, senior centers, art centers, an aquatic center, a bus shelter, a childrens museum and corporate offices.

Helen Helwig’s functional art is created using wheel thrown, hand built and extrusion techniques.  These pieces often include incised and relief sculptures of birds, animals, and plants.  The sculpted, textured and incised areas are stained and then glazed in a manner that enhances the details and surface of the images.  Helwig formulates many of her own glazes to achieve unusual effects and colors.

The artist’s decorative clay sculptures and mixed media mosaics typically depict flora and fauna themes.  The mosaics include handmade clay pieces, broken tiles, rocks and glass beads.  These mixed media mosaics are adhered to backer board, walls, benches, stepping stones, table tops, concrete forms (e.g. bird baths) and steel armatures. Helen is intrigued with combining metal and clay to create unusual sculptures.

Helen Helwig is inspired by flora and fauna, the geology and the geographic features of the region and the seasons. The stylized and symbolic images she uses as well as the themes are often derived from cultural, historical and environmental references.

Holcombe, Brian

Bio:

My current work focuses on the deconstruction of centralized systems. This direction started while researching the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe in New Orleans and the creation of vulnerable communities through population density and proximity of industry. In my attempts to visualize the hidden patterns in collective behavior of groups that allow vulnerable communities. I have been imagining possible futures of current trends in urbanization, regardless of dystopian or utopian outcomes, by creating artifacts utilizing a bottom-up decentralized approach constructed from accessible materials and technologies bringing transparency to the complexity of the status quo.

Ichihara, Machiko

Bio:

Perhaps many solo trips she took for art lessons far away from home in Tokyo, as a part of parents’ efforts to instill independence, has prepared her, Machiko continues to encounter new things with more curiosity. Meeting new people, developing skills and accumulating experiences result in new understanding, more thoughtful ideas and helping to create works with her original style.

She has arrived in Atlanta in the Bicentennial year, 1976.  After receiving MFA in Printmaking from the University of GA, a pivotal question was asked by an architect friend. Could she design and print on tiles instead of paper? For almost three decades, she has created durable tile art surfaces for many private & commercial properties around the country, including 12 years in tile industry. Public art commissions are ways to share her experiences and thoughts in hopes that her private artistic endeavors are of benefit to a larger society.

Her high appreciation in learning also commits her to aspiration in creating a teaching facility for youths to experience self-reliance through hands-on skill development, to envision a good life controllable by a good mind and skillful hands in various fields. Art making, she believes, is an all-encompassing practicing ground.

Jensen, Mike

Bio:

I was raised in Huntsville, AL, and after graduation High School, working some odd jobs, and finding the business school at the University of Alabama wasn’t the place for me, I moved to Atlanta in 1987. I found work at an art gallery, then a museum, and eventually as a self-employed photographer and art installer. My fine art photography spans a variety of subjects, and most images eventually become part of a series. One group of photographs actively in progress in the Structure/Pattern series, which is comprised of architectural photography, with an emphasis on transforming the building of abstract field of shapes. The series has evolved out of my interest in areas of mathematics that deal with pattern and inconsistencies, including algebraic geometry, and fractals. Other images capture smaller portions of buildings that have strong composition of curve, lines, or patterns, and may be juxtaposed with elements that can range anywhere from harsh surfaces and lighting, to smooth organic forms.

Bio:

Jennifer Julian received a B.A. from Auburn University in 1986, but it was not until studying at the Art Institute of Atlanta that she became serious about her life as an artist. Her first break came in 1999 when Fay Gold Gallery of Atlanta showed her work at the prestigious Association of International Photography Art Dealers in New York City. She has had solo shows at Eyedrum Gallery, Georgia Perimeter College, Berry College, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and LaGrange Art Museum. Her photographs are in many national public and private collections including, King & Spalding, Attorneys at Law, Cultural Arts Center, Douglasville, GA, Meriwether County Courthouse, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, John Cleary Gallery, Mississippi Museum of Art and Georgia Regional Hospital.

Ms. Julian teaches Creative Photography/The Art of Seeing at North Georgia College and State University and at Quinlan Visual Arts Center in Gainesville, Georgia. In addition, she enjoys teaching children and teens in many venues. In 2003, Felicia Feaster of Creative Loafing wrote that Ms. Julian’s work “speaks Proustian volumes about vulnerability and isolation”. More recently, the Durham, NC Herald-Sun wrote that her photographs “turn ostensibly simple poses into meditations on the ways women are literally or figuratively veiled, suppressed or unseen in society.” In 2006, Ms. Julian’s first book, “Path”, was published and in 2008 she made her first collaborative CD in conjunction with her photographic installation, “Water”. Ms. Julian now lives and works in the north Georgia Mountains.

250 Gemstone PlacePhone: 818-395-5484Website: www.thomaskellerart.com
Bio:

Every moment is a moment to create beauty.  To transform a space into something inspiring, uplifting and charged with energy, or to add a piece, a sculpture into a space and bring the surrounding structures into a collective new dynamic whole piece.  Life is my greatest piece of art. Create, love, live. 

I began creating art in January of 2001 at the demand of my soul to wake up and create.  My life as a building contractor was no longer big enough for my spirit.  My intention is to create art that opens people to expand their concepts of themselves, others and their position in the world. 

I love working in wood because of the intense feminine power contained in the grain.  The continuous curving of the wood grain creates its own pattern.  Often this pattern imprints on my original vision of a piece, and my sculpture becomes a cooperative partnership between me and the wood, ultimately expressing something which is bigger than either one of us individually could be. 
I stopped drawing at age nine when it was discovered that I was color-blind and the frustration that ensued while trying to make the colors match what others saw.  I began creating anew at 45 years old and now feel that color blindness enhances my visual perspective because I see colors differently and uses intuition to guide my color selections.
Travelling to sacred sites of ancient cultures such as Egypt, Peru and Central America have influenced and expanded my use of visual images.  I love to tie the history of a location with an inspired vision of the future while creating sculptures.
I am entirely self taught and living in Atlanta, Georgia.

Bio:

For over 20 years I have been creating clay sculptures of various sizes using the themes of death and rebirth, of creative life reemerging from destruction and decay.  I see the complex processes of the old and dying giving life to new growth in the rain forest, for example, as mirrors of our individual human development in both physical and spiritual spheres.  The dynamic tension, the ongoing dialogue, between decline and emergence, between the strength of maturity and the tenderness of youth, offers me an infinite variety of visual imagery rich in existential meanings.  Specific aspects of these themes, such as, transitions/transformations, connectedness/disconnectedness, beginning/endings have inspired different bodies of my work.

Knapp, Cynthia

20 Waddell St NEPhone: 404-522-5344Website: www.cynthiaknapp.com
Bio:

Knapp’s career of forty years includes numerous media from works on paper and canvas to large sculptural site installations.  Her work is found in private, corporate and university collections and is represented in galleries throughout the United States.

Knapp's new abstract paintings and drawings are musings on the relationships of organic structures. Fields of color blur, overlap, and interact to create an amalgam of natural shapes. Her intent is not to represent any literal outward appearance, but rather to portray the essence of abstraction in her physical environment.

The sculptural and public site works grew out of an opportunity to express the abstract organic imagery of her painting and drawing more integrally to an architectural site.  The narrow painted panels of these sculptures are gestured references, like 3-dimensional brushstrokes, which create a positive, uplifting and colorful interplay of forms.

The sculptures are mounted in “relief” or as suspended objects casting a variety of changing shadow patterns throughout the day when exposed to natural light.  These projects have been well received as installations for health care facilities, airports, libraries, and corporate meeting and gathering spaces, because they are playful, colorful and optimistic.

Knight, Julia Trawick

721 North College StreetPhone: 770-334-6467Website: www.juliaknight.com
Bio:

Artist Julia Trawick Knight, a native of Cedartown, Georgia, began her studies in 1973 at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee with Richard Duncan and Ed Carlos. She transferred to the Ringling School of Art at Sarasota, Florida to continue study in sculpture and figure painting with Bob Larsen and Ethelia Patmagrian. While in Sarasota, she completed a four-year apprenticeship with the well-known sculptor Leslie Posey. She also completed additional training at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia.

In 1979, she moved to Rome to establish an art studio focusing on sculptural portraits. One of the artist’s earliest portrait studies was of Frederick Knight of Cartersville whom she married in 1981. After several years of retirement to raise her three children and help restore a home on the Etowah River that had been in her husband’s family since the Civil War, Julia returned to active portrait sculpture work in 1996. Since that time she has completed commissions for clients in northwest Georgia, Houston Texas, and Atlanta. Her bronze sculpture subjects have included babies, young children, teenagers, businessmen, a physician, and a favored family pet, an English setter. Julia has participated in many exhibits in northwest Georgia, South Carolina, the National Sculpture Society in New York City, and the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club and has worked for churches, colleges, museums, and private collectors designing and sculpting commissions.

Since 2002, Julia Knight has made Pietrasanta, Italy her resident art studio, casting, and sculpting in the old art colony of Michelangelo’s Toscana. “Working in Italy has made a huge difference in my concentration and the quality of my work,” says Ms. Knight. 

In 2006, Julia marked her tenth anniversary in business by unveiling three sculptures in Cartersville, Georgia. In February 2006, a bronze bust of President Jimmy Carter was unveiled in the Hall of Presidents at the Booth Museum of Western Art in Cartersville, Georgia. The portrait captures the more serious thoughtful likeness of President Carter. In April 2006 the Tree Mandala was presented to Georgia Highlands College by a group of donors. This bonded copper bas-relief of a gigantic oak tree surrounded by leafy branches hangs in the entrance hall of the Cartersville campus. The President of the College related the importance and permanence of education to the massive oak. In May 2006 the Morgan Monument to Education was unveiled at the new Summer Hill Complex. Dedicated to the memory of two teachers at the former all black high school, the nine-foot bronze sculpture towers over the former campus. The Bartow County History Center uses this sculpture to teach the legacy of segregation to all eighth graders in the Bartow County Public School System.

In the fall of 2006 Julia Knight sculpted a commission for the parents of a deceased teenager. The Erika Memorial was unveiled at Darlington School and dedicated to their daughter’s classmates, the graduating Class of 2007.

 

In 2007 Julia experimented with direct wax casting creating two collections of small sculptures titled, “Shadow People” and “Suspended People.” Recently, Julia has begun “returning to her roots.” She has relocated her studio to Cedartown, Georgia, and she is currently working to coordinate an exhibit in Denmark from which her family emigrated in 1904. Julia’s Danish grandmother was a painter and traveled around the United States painting the communities that she visited. To honor the memory of her grandmother, in the exhibit Julia will showcase her beloved grandmother’s paintings and her own sculptures. In the early months of 2008 Julia focused on drawing from live models, a medium that is the foundation of good figurative sculpture.

After tak­ing pho­tog­ra­phy classes at The South­east­ern Cen­ter for the Arts, Kolb began work as a free-lance pho­tog­ra­pher and has been based in Atlanta since 1985. Begin­ning in jour­nal­ism and edi­to­r­ial work, by the mid-1990’s she shifted her focus to fine art images of nat­ural forms and landscapes.

Though Kathryn Kolb has no for­mal train­ing as an artist, visual arts runs in both par­ents’ fam­i­lies, and her pater­nal grand­fa­ther, Harold H. Kolb, was a noted water­color painter work­ing in Boston and the New Eng­land area.

“I have begun to realize (framing) phenomena as it occurs in architecture, using the device of the window to isolate spaces. These fragments are icons, landscapes, cityscapes, portraits: small pieces making a whole. Through this process of fragmentation, the photographic image is more like the process of human sight. We do not see situations as a whole but rather as a summary of a collection of many objects and relationships.”

Lamėy, Kristofer

Website: www.kristoferlamey.com
Bio:

Born on April 16,1978 in Newnan, Georgia. United states. Currently working from his studio located in the downtown business district, the former Atlanta Museum of Design space. Kristofer Laméy has worked professionally as an Independent artist and designer for eleven years. Laméy's passion for creating Art forms was present during his youth, but, the experimentation of computer controlled machinery as a young adult is what has made Kristofer Laméy's method in design and fabrication unique today. With a keen understanding of the properties of the materials used in Laméy's work, Laméy's ability to express his vision by the use of computer aided drafting software, and working knowledge of Light as a medium has set Laméy's work apart from conventional means of expression. In doing so Laméy has pushed his work into a territory of controversy... Is Kristofer Laméy's work Art or Design?

Larson, Richard

Website: http://r-larson.com
Bio:

Richard Larson was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1946. Growing up as a post-war baby, Dick quickly learned that fine art could be found within the rich architecture of the city, a philosophy he carries with him in his travels to this day. His first attempt as an artist came with the familiar "Can You Draw This?" matchbook cover. He could, did, and won a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago at the age of six. It would be his last love-relationship with art until many years later.

As happens to many artists in their life paths, circumstances sidetracked Dick. After graduating from Southern Illinois University with a degree in finance, Dick entered the world of business in the area of real estate. Marriage and career in place, life seemed to resemble an Ozzie-and-Harriet movie. However, the pressures of both business and social responsibilities coupled with a "keeping up with the Jones" mindset took its toll and eventually led to a parting of the ways in both his business and personal relationship

Taking a sabbatical, Dick retired to a 400 acre blueberry farm on the Etowah River in North Georgia. Between doing odd jobs to stay alive, Dick spent three years, eight hours a day, sitting at his easel learning and loving his art. Coupled with a spiritual awakening that enabled him to reach from within, Dick's art began to evolve and continues to evolve to this day. "My mission is to transmit a message to the viewers through my canvases, so that when they walk away, it is with an enlightened heart. My paintings tell a story, not always the same to everyone, but a story, nonetheless, that hopefully will make a difference in their lives. Color, composition and light, light, light. That is what art is all about".

Dick has recently relocated from the Park City, Utah to the Southeast where he is capturing with his palette a mix of the old and the new. He is currently painting a series he likes to call "changes in perspective." Paintings of items that have lost their utilitarian value, but through recreation now have an ascetic value that is serendipitous to the eye. "It is not always what your eye sees, but how your mind interprets your vision."

His other subject/passions are children and seniors. "Kids and old folks are our most special, but often unappreciated assets. I love to portray them because they are so expressive. Kids are candid, fresh and real and old folks simply don't care".

Both grandfathers moved to New York to start a new life and raise a family. Dave began his career in high school working construction jobs during the summer months, and further honed his skills by majoring in a four year Furniture program at Buffalo State College. After completing his degree, he worked various full-time positions in the field. With a continued appreciation for Art and Design, Dave enrolled in the graduate Furniture program at Rhode Island School of Design. While attending RISD, he also taught classes in the Furniture Design program and in the Interior Design department.After receiving his MFA in Furniture Design, Dave freelanced with furniture maker and designer Alphonse Mattia constructing one-of-a-kind custom studio furniture. Dave also created his own studio furniture during this period, and freelanced as an industrial designer creating sketches and models for over-seas manufactures.After relocating from Providence to Atlanta, Dave re-established his furniture studio. He began freelancing with clients such as The High Museum of Art, Michael C. Carlos Museum, Turner Productions, and residential Interior Designers. Dave also continued to teach college level 2-Dimensional Design and 3-Dimensional Design in Atlanta.While pursuing an established career in Furniture and Exhibition Design, Dave added the role as a home owner/ contractor to his repertoire. Within ten years’ time, he fully remodeled four historic homes in Atlanta’s Druid Hills district. “I really enjoy taking a well-constructed old home and breathing new life into it...Although this process is lengthy and creative design is somewhat limited within historic restrictions...I can still find ways to be creative and the overall functional rewards are tremendous.”

Lejeune, Lori

Website: www.studiolejeune.com
Bio:

Lori Lejeune works with several types of digital media and favors the use of 3D software in creating her photo and mixed media artwork. 3D software is more commonly used to create animated feature films. The process is time-intensive and can be thought of as a combination of sculpting and photography. Chess references appear frequently in her work and although she's not a chess player, she's inspired by the game for representing life's choices and challenges. The Body Language installation series explores the human condition using digital representations and emphasizes similarities between people, such as a physical form and feelings. Body Language installations can be configured to suit specific public sites. 

Lori Lejeune's artwork has been shown in over 100 exhibitions throughout the U.S. and is included in corporate, private and museum collections. Collectors include: the Charter Management Company, Coronado Press, the Museum of South Texas, Mexic-Arte Museum, and the University of Texas Benson/Romo Collection, among others. Prior gallery and juried exhibitions include those in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Silicon Valley and Atlanta. Her work has been included in museum exhibitions in California and in Texas. Her work also was selected for exhibition in Austin Bergstrom International airport.  In addition to private commissions, she was chosen to participate in the multicultural Series print project funded in part by the City of Austin.

Lumumba, Aisha

Website: http://obaquilts.com/
Bio:

Aisha Lumumba was born in McDonough, Georgia. Now a well-known artist in Atlanta, Aisha loves many art mediums. She was interested in art at a very early age. She learned quilting by watching the elders in her childhood make quilts. Her first love was sewing and creating art projects with fabric which eventually led her to quilting. She started her first quilt at 18 and she has 25 plus years of quilting experience.

Ms. Lumumba was a high achiever as she matriculated through the Henry County school system. She moved to Atlanta and in her words "became a mediocre student" majoring in Art at Georgia State University. Ms. Lumumba felt unfulfilled by that direction and started a family with Chinyelu Lumumba while still attending Georgia State University. Her husband introduced her to books by and about black people that she never knew existed. With zeal and excitement she read every book she could get her hands on about black history. During this period of awakening she changed her name to Aisha. This awareness of the “black struggle” and black people’s contribution to life (in Africa, America and throughout the world) added meaning to her life and expression to her artistic desires.

Life and family swept Aisha up and she put her art on hold for a few years. She and Chinyelu raised four children and built several businesses. Many customers affectionately called her Sister Aisha. Sister Aisha spent twenty years as Queen Mother of a traditional African society, where she counseled and taught life skills.  She is also nationally known for her soulful vegetarian cooking and cookbooks, but in the year 2000 she picked up her quilting again with a vengeance. She gave up all other duties, closed their business to quilt full-time.

Ms. Lumumba has been very prolific as a quilter and fiber artist. She is a member of the Brown Sugar Stitchers Quilt Guild, the Ebony Stitchers Quilt Guild, Black Art in America and African Americans for the Arts. Her quilts are now a part of the collections of Ambassador Andrew Young, Mrs. Valerie Jackson, Dr. Stephanie Jolly, Ms. Brenda Banks, Ms. Woodie Persons, The Atrium on Sweet Auburn and President & Mrs. Barack Obama.

Bio:

Rhythm is the basis of our visual world, from the windows and tile arrangements found in our homes, to the composition of plant life and oceanic creatures.
Most every form of matter that we acknowledge throughout our daily lives possess the evidence of rhythmic life. Rhythm structures tone and sound. It gives shape to speech, melody, dance, poetry, and the human body. Without rhythm light, sound, and other forms could not be differentiated from one another as it is their frequency or rhythmic waveforms that define them. While exploring and exposing various subject matter, my goal is to recognize how shape, form, and pattern are primary in our daily outlook. The works created can be described as visual sheet music. Blocks and angles of color brushed and smudged across random perimeters of various medium. Broken and solid line work split and gel together the variety of hue and shape. Found within the core of the work are the cultural references, signs of technological advances, schematically diagrams, component dials and switches are all included for their fundamental form. Most of them are basic circles, squares, and triangles. When these ideas are put together it creates a piece of music that is seen instead of heard. The rhythm of life is inhaled and exhaled with each day that is given to us. By realizing the fundamentals of our daily visual experiences, individuals can relate and appreciate the role that rhythm plays in our lives.

Malone, James Hiram

Malone, Katy

Bio:

My work is directly inspired by the environment in which it is shown. Whether the space I am researching is internal or site specific, I enjoy exploring literal or imaginative histories as I form concepts for my pieces. I use my background in the sciences directly to create art that often starts as a true experiment.  Then I venture into the dualities and impermanence that I find in a space. Everything is composed of energy and matter that shifts and changes form constantly.  I seek out the natural cycles of our bodies, our narratives, our spirituality and our environment as they shift, break down and rebuild.

Materiality plays a large role in my work and is as defined by the space as my concept. As a result in making a public art piece I would be most inclined to exploring permanent materials that are related to the community and public area that the piece will live in. In particular I envision exploring integrated glass work and stone or wooden inlays. I would also enjoy working on design-team projects, using my ability to compromise and negotiate the back end of a project while building into an architect’s vision.

Marshall-Linnemeier, Lynn

Website: http://lynnlinn.net
Bio:

Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier is a visual mythologist, a memory keeper.  She is guided by the idea of the journey, unmapped spaces and the magic that occurs when one goes looking for history and ancestors.  Her visual repertoire mythologizes and re-imagines historical incidences (especially those that are informed by race, gender, and stereotypes) using photography, painting, oral histories and primary source documents.  She uses these sources to tell the stories of the people in communities that she encounters.  Through the Journey Projects she focuses on toural communities (rural agricultural communities that rely on and/or are developing tourism), urban enclaves, and indigenous communities.  In many instances, culturally significant connections are revealed and spiritual connections are made.

 

An honors graduate of the Atlanta College of Art (Presidential Scholar), Marshall-Linnemeier received an MA Degree in Southern Studies in 2005 from the University of Mississippi.  She has received numerous awards throughout her long career and her work is held in numerous collections including the High Museum of Art, Atlanta University, Grace United Methodist Church, Covington, GA, Morgan County African American Museum, and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts.  She has taught and lectured at many universities including Emory University, Spelman College, Agnes Scott College, the University of Georgia, Brandeis University, and the University of South Australia.  She has also served as a consultant to many community arts organizations.

I grew up with stories and music.  My dad was a tailor turned musician and radio disc jockey.  My mom was a homemaker and domestic worker.  It was nothing for my dad's band and members of our family to gather at our house for a jam session.  My family communicated through stories, rememberingand mimicking through performance ancestors whose lives had influenced their own.  My work honors these stories visually and spiritually.  I am a visual mythologist, a memory keeper.  -Lynn Linnemeier, 2012

Bio:

Sharon McNeil began drawing at a very early age, and at twelve won her first award for an illustration at a local newspaper competition in her hometown of Salem Oregon.  She has been working in the arts ever since.  Ms. McNeil earned a Bachelors of Art degree with a double major in Art and Theatre at Lewis and Clark College in Portland Oregon.  While at Lewis and Clark, she spent five months in Greece studying the language and culture on the island of Nysiros in the Dodecanese.  She also spent time with her grandmother's family who still live in Athens and Kalamata.  This experience filled her with images of life and celebration, history and mourning, many of which permeate her work to this day.  While living in Seattle, she worked as a scenic artist for numerous theatrical organizations including Seattle Repertory Theatre, Seattle Opera, and A Contemporary Theatre.  In 1998 Ms McNeil moved to California to pursue her MFA degree in Drawing and Painting at California State University Long Beach.  Since graduating in 2001, she has taught at various colleges and universities throughout Southern California.  Her work has been seen in group shows throughout the west coast. She has had solo exhibitions at Lake Tahoe, in Long Beach and most recently, a two-person show at the Okefenokee Heritage Center in Waycross Georgia.  She now resides in Savannah Georgia where she teaches at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Miles, Cathryn

Website: www.milesstudiogallery.com
Bio:

The compositions of my most recent paintings focus on patterned-filled columnar shapes surrounded by negative space.  This imagery represents a dynamic life force and the titles refer to organic, living things.  The pieces “Saplings” and “Strands” symbolize DNA trees, the very essence of life. Other paintings, such as “Pods”, depict an abstract representation of actual organic objects.

Nature has always been the initial inspiration for my work, but I have other wide-ranging references including mid-century Modern painters, the simplified shapes and interwoven patterning of Mesoamerican art and traditional textile design.  This last influence, in particular, is very important to my work in terms of the interaction of design elements and color.  During the course of my career, I’ve experimented extensively with different formats and styles of painting.  Most recently, I have returned to my abstract roots and a basic design vocabulary: line, shape, pattern, color and surface.

I start each painting with simple lines and geometric areas of color.  Then, by a process of multi-layering and subtraction, I structure the composition into a unified whole.   Just as textiles are interwoven, I try to achieve a balanced intersection of shapes, color, pattern and surface texture.

Mitchell, Linda

1580 Loring DrivePhone: 404.876.5304Website: www.lindamitchell.30art.com
Bio:

After studying at Georgia State University and Berry College, Mitchell attended the University of Georgia, receiving a BFA in 1982. While there she developed a special interest in lithography, and she credits printmaking for spurring her feeling for layering images and textures. Mitchell went on to receive an MFA in painting from the University of Georgia in 1990, and an MFA in sculpture from Georgia State University in 1994. Mitchell’s early work focused on animals in multi-panel paintings, featuring cut-out figures, and other dimensional elements.

In 2000 Mitchell began creating large acrylic paintings that combined actual objects with painted illusion. This work culminated in an 8'x18' installation of over-lapping paintings, Embrace the Messy, exhibited in 2004. The show’s title embodies the artist’s intuitive approach that allows poetic meaning to emerge from the highly textural layering of painted and digital images with a variety of materials. Mitchell’s sculptural inclination was spurred after the birth of her son in 1995 and she began making animal figures using Play-Doh. In 2006 she started sewing fabric animals as well. The animal figures have been used as models for paintings and as photographic images collaged to the surface of pieces. The animals often express human emotions as they are combined with images of ephemeral beauty from nature. Other major installations are the 2006 Serio in Verse, which alternated paintings with sculptural fabric animals, and the 2007 Too Much Will Never Be Enough. The latter is ruled by a fabric sculpture of Louis XIV as a horned animal avatar, flanked by fantastic paintings inspired by Mitchell’s European travels.

Linda Mitchell has exhibited her paintings extensively with her solo exhibitions including those at Peninsula Fine Arts Center, , Atlanta, GA, Radford University Museum, Visual Arts Center of Northwest Florida, Panama City, FL, Spiva Center for the Arts, Joplin, MO, The Goddard Center, Ardmore, OK, Tinney + Cannon Contemporary, Nashville, Mason Murer Fine Art and One Twelve non-profit Gallery, Atlanta, GA, Georgia State University, and the Metropolitan Arts Council, Birmingham, AL.

Mize, William

1875 Mason Mill RdPhone: 770.652.4319Website: www.williammizeart.com
Bio:

Painting allows William Mize to define himself in relation to the world around him. William explores the realization of identity using seemingly impersonal spaces and is intrigued by the power they possess to evoke a human presence. He is inspired by what is around him: his life, his community, his surroundings. To paint something is to more fully understand it — be it a house, a person or an abstract idea. In William’s paintings, this understanding manifests itself in many ways, either stemming from the past where it reaches back to his earliest memories or delving into the future where it becomes new and ever-changing.

Moulton, Marc

339 Cross Creek Phone: 912.478.7665Fax: 912.478.7460Website: class.georgiasouthern.edu/art/moulton.html
Bio:

Marc enjoys the versatility of metal and the emotional power of light. He is interested in both the physicality of shapes and the phenomena of light. Much of his past work has been an exploration of the relationships between forms and light. This exploration has been an attempt to create works that extend beyond their physical boundaries into the surrounding area through projected, reflected, and environmental light. Additionally, his interests often include using multiple items/sculptures to establish a visual dialog between two locations while serving as navigational/landscape markers.

He has successfully created over 15 major projects that have strong visual and conceptual connections to their surrounding environment and history. For Marc the attraction of public-space projects lies in the challenge of creating art that is both conceptually and visually successful.

Marc received his MFA from Ohio State University and is currently an Assistant Professor of Art at Georgia State University.

Moxley, Pam

2311 Woodfield Lane NEPhone: 770.321.9989Website: www.pammoxley.com
Bio:

Pam Moxley, a self-taught Artist, has spent the last nineteen years pursuing her fascination with photography and mixed media. Every piece includes her unique photographic vision. Once she is finished with the photographic component, Pam continues to create through several other mediums. She starts by painting a dimensional board with several layers and textures of paint. She then uses an image transfer process that she has developed to add the photograph to the board. Pam finishes each of the works with a poured layer of high gloss resin. The combination of these techniques brings each of these individual works of art to life. Mixing the distress of the transfers with the brilliance of the resin creates a beautiful mix of nostalgia and high concept polish.

Pam has been exhibiting her work throughout the United States for the last several years including solo exhibits at the Atlanta Botanical Garden and Mason Murer Fine Art. Pam’s work is held in many private and public collections throughout the United States including the City of Atlanta collection, the APG collector’s portfolio, Blackbird Technologies, and the Southeast Museum of Photography. Pam’s work has also been featured in films and national magazines.

Nesin, Barbara

Website: www.artistsregister.com/artists/ga1
Bio:

Nesin’s paintings investigate multiculturalism in an increasingly global context.  Beyond any one culture, she re-connects the experience of living between cultures as being simultaneously fragmented and holistic.  As a visual metaphor, Nesin uses a mixture of media, often including photo transfers that convey layered meanings and suggest glimpses of “the real” set in contrast to the surreal-ness of the painted imagery.  She is not as interested in realism as in positing another reality upon which viewers may reflect in order to glean some new insight.  Her thematic series often reference polyglot societies, particularly Haiti, and symbolism from Islam, Christianity, and Judaism.

Nesin holds a B.F.A. from Pratt Institute and an M.F.A. from Indiana State University.   Solo exhibitions include Kenkeleba House (NY), the National Museum of Ghana, and Atlanta’s Hammonds House and Mason Murer Fine Art, in addition to numerous other solo, invitational, and juried exhibitions, including the 10th Havana Bienal in Cuba.  Nesin is Department Chair of Art Foundations at The Art Institute of Atlanta, and President-elect of the College Art Association.   Other affiliations include the Haitian Studies Association and the Atlanta Black-Jewish Coalition, among others.  Her studio is at The Arts Exchange in Atlanta.

Nioshii

Bio:

Art is the code of my DNA. I wasn’t aware as a child how fortunate I am to be born into
a family of artists, though I embrace it now. My knowledge about creating and
experiencing art is so first nature to me that I didn’t recognize its depth and breadth until
I had some distance from it. As an artist, I have evolved from my classical Italian upbringing to expressing increasingly complex concepts in increasingly abstract ways. I apply traditional
materials and principles of art in contemporary ways, using whatever media and
process best serve the art and what I’m conveying. Having worked with developers and
architects, I understand the criteria involved in incorporating art into construction
endeavors, and the experience of being an artist on project sites and design teams.
I became obsessed with expressing color and light after having the “death experience”
when my husband died in my arms years ago. My distinct recollection of the exquisite
beauty of etheric light, color, and music, and of experiencing pure love and peace,
influences me and my art to this day, and drives me to recapture that awareness and
emotion, and the grace within color and light.

Nock, George

Website: http://www.georgenock.com/
Bio:

George Nock, former running back with the New York Jets and Washington Redskins was destined early in life to become an artist.   His has been a fascinating career – from maneuvering his powerful torso, to swift moves on the Gridiron, to positioning his big, strong hands to delicately mold objects of intricacy and perfection.   Self-taught, Nock has distinguished himself among the greatest sculptors of the twentieth through twenty-first century, due to an intrinsic ability to capture with versatility highly original bronzes reflecting life’s experiences.   The brawny, broad-shouldered ex-athlete found his real victory in shaping exquisite sculpture.  Inspired by junior high school teachers, one a sculptor, the other a painter, the multi-talented Nock etched, sketched, sculpted and painted throughout high school – amid stellar performance on the basketball court and football field. In 1964, on a sports scholarship, the mild-mannered jock attended Morgan State University, where he majored in Psychology.  By 1969 he had been drafted by the New York Jets.  “The team would be going over game strategy in the training facility in Shea Stadium, and would find Nock working on preliminary drawings for sculptures.  After 5 years in the NFL, Nock retired.  A natural instinct to eye a field and to scheme an entire play transformed fluidly -- to the ability to look at a clump of clay and envision a masterpiece. Whereas, immediate productivity was demanded on the playing field, the average sculpture required 2-7 months of labor to complete.  Yet, the euphoria of the vision ―the creativity poured into the 3- dimensional  structure — exceeds the thrill or rush one feels in running a touch down, Nock maintains.  In fact, his first bronze cast "ScatBack" depicted his very playing position -- a running back.  “I knew all mechanics of the moves – so I was inspired to recreate them in 3-D.”    Nock's admiration of the human form and firsthand knowledge of the feats it can achieve is spectacularly recognized in the compelling realism of his work.

Through hands-on practice, Nock devoted his life to the creation of realistic figures in bronze.

“I feel a responsibility to breathe life into untold stories, usually women, the culture bearers of any society.  Oftentimes my subject will be African-Americans, whose way of life seems to have remained in touch with their heritage.   One can still observe many of our traditions and ways of times past. Our history is reflected in our faces.”

His bronzes seem to embody a definite feeling of humility and passion regardless of vast subject matter. Much of Nock’s work is derived from some indelible experience stored in the crevices of his mind. Whether sculpting a figure from world history, a forgotten people, or a famed athlete Nock possesses the uncanny ability to capture the essence of his subject with a characteristic pose or expression. Perhaps it’s Nock’s early coursework in psychology that comes into play, leaving us with the feel that his bronze works are more than mere representations – but lifelike intimate glimpses into the very core of who his figures are.

Bio:

I seek to bring attention to the oscillations of life felt by the “universal woman”, by exploring the perennial contradictions that make up the female experience, and the means, women find to endure the currents of societal expectations, felt in the face of their own metamorphosis, from adolescence to adulthood.

Empowered by the responsibilities that women have in an ever-changing set of roles in society, I use nature as a metaphor for the evolution of the modern women.

Far from representing the victimization of women, my work embodies both the chaos and conquest of the experience that is “woman”.

Parker, Virginia

324 Blanton Rd.Phone: 404.421.6651Website: vaparker.blogspot.com
Bio:

Atlanta native Virginia Parker lived in northern California in the sixties, worked in front of the camera in Europe in the seventies and worked as a professional journalist, since the eighties. She began painting in the nineties and after a decade as a hybrid writer/painter, her painting Venice, Tagliatelle won first place in “Sights and Insights,” the DFAA Southeastern Biennial Exhibition.

Virginia Parker’s art honors the evolution of literature and literacy. Public art concerned with the history and future of books, newspapers, magazines and storytelling has the power to energize and inspire the viewer, and arouse interest in and commitment to learning.  Parker is exploring the current profound and accelerating shift in information delivery from actual to virtual, paper to Internet using still lifes that layer what is endangered in the natural world with extinct and endangered tools and products of writers. This series is a contemporary Nature Morte, with elements of Vanitas paintings.

Parker uses the techniques of traditional representational still life painting to explore contemporary issues. Once the initial concept is chosen, her process involves researching appropriate elements, gathering materials and doing principal source photography. After the initial drawing is completed using a grid transfer, each painting takes anywhere from two weeks to six months, depending upon size and complexity.

Peterson, Allen

Website: www.allenpeterson.com
Bio:

Allen Peterson was born at Holy Name of Jesus Hospital in Gadsden, Alabama.  He soon discovered that he enjoyed building things, watching fire, and making art, but didn’t combine those three elements until he was almost twenty-one years old.  From there he soon immersed himself in the foundry process at the Metal Arts program of Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark in Birmingham, Alabama.  From 1998 through 2001 he was a Resident Artist in that program, serving as a teacher and resource for the creation of cast metal sculpture.  He left Sloss to get his Master’s degree in Sculpture from the University of Minnesota.  After grad school, Allen Peterson taught sculpture at several colleges and universities before accepting his current position as Professor of Sculpture at the Savannah College of Art and Design’s campus in Atlanta.  Before he began working as a professor, he had at some point been paid for his work in busking, graphic design, illustration, jazz drumming, moving office furniture, old-time fiddling, percussion, teaching elementary school art, restoring antique paintings, serving sushi, set design, setting up cat cages, sign painting, waiting at a French restaurant, and many other things.  He enjoys teaching sculpture as a professor even more than these fields.  Peterson finds it satisfying to be a resource for casting and sculpting, as well as selling his sculpture, drawings, paintings, and other art.   His work has been shown throughout the United States, as well as internationally.  Peterson explores themes of system and community in his work, in which individual elements often combine to form structures based on interrelationships, and performance blurs the line between labor, system, and ritual.

Pratt, Mary

4700 Gold Mine Dr.Phone: 770.945.8096Website: www.Marybpratt.blogspot.com
Bio:

Mary Pratt is an Atlanta-based artist who utilizes color and contrast to evoke emotions while provoking thought, addressing “humanness lite” both visually and conceptually. Her brush strokes are bold; her sense of color is magical. Mary arrives conceptually through research of pertinent subject matter considering the work’s final environment. She determines color and aesthetics intuitively. The journey from her mind’s eye to the soul’s window could describe her process. Mary establishes an idea and creates an edge or an angle that perhaps the viewer may not have considered.  It is important to her that the viewer’s emotional response is enhanced and that one may find through observance of the piece, an alternative way of understanding the subject matter.

Her work is a part of Brenau University’s permanent collection. Mary has recently completed a mural for the City of Atlanta. She designed a mural as part of community action program that strategically places artwork around the city of Atlanta. Mary has painted extensively in restaurants. Her work is held in many private collections.

This body of work is drawn from the “Every Day.” Coated in wax the images capture the feeling of a “snap shot” in time.  The time is the “now” and it the “now” that fascinates me.

Combining photography and printmaking, I layer images between each other so as to give the feeling of suspension, time ceases in the “now” – and there is really no time.

Most of these photographs where taken in South Africa in the very beautiful Eastern Cape. The landscape and geography offer themselves to being photographed both from the land and the sky.

Proctor, Philip

Bio:

Phil Proctor enjoys working with “solid” materials like metal and stone and uses them in a manner that accommodates the natural tendencies of those materials. He utilizes the colors and textures that occur as a result of natural oxidation and patination.  This technique makes his outdoor sculpture virtually maintenance free while simultaneously exhibiting qualities of earthliness and wholeness.  For many years Proctor has been executing sculpture that embodies the concepts of energy and physical space.  Recently, however, Proctor has taken that static concept to a new kinetic plane by integrating moving elements that emphasize the idea of energy.

Phil Proctor is an artist who has been living and working in southeast Atlanta for the past eight years.  Originally from south Mississippi, he holds a BFA from the University of Southern Mississippi and an MFA from East Carolina University. Proctor has permanent sculpture installations throughout the southeast as well as in other countries across Western Europe.

Proctor has been commissioned to produce two major public artworks that are now permanently installed in the City of Atlanta. “Linkage”, stands at Atlanta’s second busiest Marta station handling an average of 23,400 boardings per weekday.  This 75 foot linear sculpture incorporates aluminum and copper plates that represent the expansive reach of MARTA and the way it links communities together through the ease of transportation.  “Anchored Sail”, located at South Bend Park, is one of six projects commissioned by the city as part of the Public Art Community Gateway Project.  This 22 foot tall kinetic artwork incorporates elements that symbolically reflect the historical and cultural values of the Lakewood Heights community where it is permanently located.

In addition to commissioned works, Proctor frequently exhibits his large scale sculpture locally and regionally in venues such as Hartsfield Jackson International airport.  His artwork has had a positive impact on communities, which has lead to purchases from patrons such as the City of Sandy Springs for “Sky Lark” which currently stands at the Sandy Springs public library.

Reese, Michael

Website: www.michaelreesephotography.com
Bio:

Creating on any level comes from my need to communicate something, be it beauty, abstract ideas, or political perspective. I do not  see photography as purely technical; I see it more as a means of expression- a way to say, or share the way, I feel about my world.  As the world encounters time and evolves, my artistic reaction and communication to it also evolves.

My formal artistic education in photography took place at the Atlanta College of Art.  During my educational career, I traveled to both the Czech Republic and Japan.  I realized, at that time, that I would internalize traveling as part of my artistic journey and knew it would become an integral part of my external work.

After graduating from the Atlanta College of Art in 1996 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, I sojourned to London and then returned to the Czech Republic. I can truly say that during my time at the Atlanta College of Art, and in my travels, I became an artist. As is the nature of evolution, however, I am still becoming an artist.  For me, the camera is simply a tool, as is the paintbrush, or more currently, the computer.  Understanding this has broadened the parameters of photography for me.

Currently, I am an active visual artist, as well as a photographer. It is my intent to touch as many people as possible with my work.  I want my work to be far reaching, to have several functions. I want it to reach past my own demographic.  There is some work that I have done that I want to simply reference the basics of life that connects us all, regardless of race, religion and gender. I also want to inform with my work.  A large part of the work that I‘ve exhibited deals with social politics and its many nuances from a Black male perspective.  Ultimately, I want my work to connect in the higher evolutionary process of us all and resurrect the possibilities that have become dormant from intellectual neglect.

Riley-Webb, Charlotte

120 Sandy Dr. Phone: 678.284.1770Website: www.charlotterileywebb.com
Bio:

Contemporary realistic with an abstract flair is how Charlotte described her representational works.  This rhythmic style with bright bold colors, easily translated into the illustrations for five children’s books Rent Party Jazz and Sweet Potato Pie, for New York publisher, Lee and Low and The Entrance Place of Wonders, published by Abrams Books. In it, Charlotte invited the reader to enjoy the rhythms of her paintings as they glided through what she feels was the most exciting cultural period for African Americans, The Harlem Renaissance. It was a collection of poems by different poets written for children during that period. She was also a contributor to Our Children Can Soar, released summer, 2009 was contributed to by twelve of the countries most prominent children’s book illustrators. Her latest book, Today Around Our Way is  to be published by Abrams in 2010.  She was also the artist selected to illustrate the covers for the Sleepy Steve series by author, Deronte’ Smith and the soon to be released book by well known author, Joyce Moore.

An evolution of study, growth and expansion has led Charlotte to her new and present genre, abstract art. She began the process by studying with two of this countries premier abstract artists. This opportunity aided her in finding her own “abstract niche” and helped propel the career which she had been hinging on for many years, even in her figurative works. Charlotte says, “Transitioning into Abstract art has been a natural, liberating experience for me as an artist. I have been exploring the relationships between line, space, texture, color, composition and emotional awareness in creating these new works and discovering how to make these elements relevant to my art working in acrylics, oils and pastels.  I feel that abstract art represents the depths of ones artist soul. From the process, I am truly exploring my latitude as an artist.”

Rogers, Maceo

Bio:

Maceo Rogers was born in the small town of Edison, Georgia and grew up in the rural small town of Cuthbert, GA.. As a little boy growing up in the sixties, Maceo picked cotton until he began school. It wasn’t long before Maceo became interested in drawing and painting. Human stick figures and simple objects were sources of his initial inspiration. By the time of his first art class (fifth grade) he was fully engaged with creating works of art that further inspired him.

Maceo began painting imagery of his environment, old aged barns and rusted shacks within the rural setting. The first painting he sold netted $20, which triggered excitement and joy in that someone would pay money for his work. It wasn’t until he began attending arts and crafts shows around Southwest Georgia that his exposure to styles and artist techniques broaden his creative horizon. It was during his high school years when he attended the Governor’s Honor Program in North Georgia that he got even more exposure to a lot of different mediums that would provide for greater experiments. After high school, Maceo attended the Atlanta College of Art, where he earned a BFA Degree in Visual Communications.

Much of his work today consists of life experiences involving a wide range of subject matters. Maceo uses a number of different mediums including acrylic and oil paints, watercolors, pastels, dirt, pen and ink and charcoal. Realism, Surrealism and Abstraction are core focuses of many of his paintings.

Maceo has taught art classes at Fort Valley State University, Fort Valley, Georgia and around Atlanta, Georgia. He continues to mass market reproductions of his art. He’s received national recognition from such publications as True Imaging Magazine, Dallas, TX, Upscale Magazine, Atlanta, GA, and Images Magazine, Moreno Valley, CA for his work. In addition, Maceo earned a CEcD in Economic Development, a graduate of Leadership DeKalb, Decatur, GA 2004, Regional Leadership Institute, Atlanta, GA 2008, and a Fourth Degree Black Belt instructor in Cuong Nhu Oriental Martial Arts in Atlanta, GA. Maceo, his wife Sharon and their son Alexander live in Decatur, Georgia.

Schindel, Sara

Website: www.saraschindel.com
Bio:

Objects are my medium: dolls, beads, action figures, toy animals. They speak to me of their own strange histories even as in juxtaposition they suggest an assemblage, a patterning of memories, experiences, and emotional states. And I also see them as abstractions: their colors and shapes are the raw materials from which I can create a new object.

Recurrent themes in my work include my home life and childhood, feminism, consumerism, spirituality, recreating self, and flying carpets. I create art that bridges my inner spiritual life and the material universe. It carries spiritual energy, mystery and humor, qualities I admire in other art.

I start a sculpture by choosing one or more objects, something I gleaned from a resale shop, received from a friend, inherited from my son, or found under the sofa or on the sidewalk. This seed crystal might well be a mass produced, mass marketed piece of consumer culture, but by the time it falls into my hands it has gained a strange dignity or a battered charm unique to itself.   What will happen when I bring it into conversation with other flotsam and jetsam?

My flying carpet series is one metaphor for this creative process, in which magical objects take me (and later, I hope, the viewer) into other realms or show the familiar world in new light. In the end the objects seem to have entered into the work for some divine propose. They fit together organically. The muse works in mysterious ways.

Sirlin, Deanna

Website: http://www.deannasirlin.com/
Bio:

Sirlin’s first work of public art was a work for the Spruill Oaks Regional Library entitled Looking Forward, Looking Back (1998) commissioned by the Fulton County Arts Council. In 1999, the High Museum of Art commissioned Retracings, a transparent work for the windows on three floors of the museum’s building, which the museum acquired for its permanent collection. She has completed eighteen large-scale works, including window installations for the Georgia Museum of Art, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and a permanent installation in Italy at the University of Venice.

In 2008, Sirlin completed a memorial work at Agnes Scott College. Four more works followed in 2009: two monumentally scaled interior and exterior walls for publicly accessible corporate spaces, and two works for fire stations commissioned by the City of Atlanta, one an exterior mosaic in glass tile. Sirlin also received the commission for an interactive transparency work for the Emmett O'Brien Technical High School in Ansonia, Connecticut with a budget of $290,000.

Ms. Sirlin selects the design and materials best suited to each site and the community surrounding it. It is the artist’s obligation to make the dialogue between public art and the community rich and meaningful.

Smith, Doug

P.O. Box 162841Phone: 770-969-4866Website: www.dougsmithphotos.com
Bio:

Photographer Doug Smith has captured images of the likes of renowned entertainers Diahann Carroll and B.B. King; key political figures, including former U.S. President Bill Clinton and U.N. Ambassador Andrew Young; and civil rights notables Coretta Scott King and Congressman John Lewis.

A 20-plus-year photographer, Smith’s work has appeared in national publications Brides Noir, Glamour and Upscale magazines; The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and The Baltimore Sun. 

Through his Snapshots of Sound collection, Smith appeals to musicians and music enthusiasts alike—from symphonic to concert to marching to jazz band members. Snapshots of Sound is one way Smith—a member of the marching band in high school and college—pays tribute to the marching band experience.

The 25-piece photographic art work series demonstrates the beauty of musical instruments, including piano, saxophone, clarinet, baritone, flute, guitar, French horn, violin and trumpet.  Included in Snapshots of Sound are “Drumline,” an 11 X 14 photo on a 16 X 20 matte and board; canvas fine art prints “Golden Glory” and “Tangled Intentions;” and “Five Strings Down,” an 11 X 17 photo on 18 X 24 matte and board.

Stanford, Ruth

Bio:

My work is grounded in my personal response to a particular site, whether to its present state, its history, or its potential for the future.  At its most basic, my work is an exploration of the physical spaces inhabited, and inevitably affected, by everyday people who may or may not still be present.  My goal as an artist is to explore the places and spaces we inhabit, how we alter them forever by virtue of a fleeting presence, and how such “alterations” affect us in the present day.

As a result of these interests, much of my work falls into the realm of public installation and sculpture.  I have worked on a number of projects that provided experience relevant to production of public art.  In 2000, I was a co-curator and exhibitor for Passing Through Walls, a university-wide exhibition of installation, sculpture, and performance at the University of Texas School of Architecture.  In Pittsburgh, I organized and participated in a contemporary art exhibit at Allegheny Cemetery in the city’s Lawrenceville neighborhood.  Both of these experiences involved working with other artists on the logistics of making art in functional spaces not usually associated with art exhibits.  They also both involved a great deal of coordination with the entities and administrators of those spaces.

While I strive to make work that has merit in the realm of contemporary art, I often find that the most rewarding part of making the work lies in the interactions with non-artists.  The comments of the cab driver who stopped to look at What Remains or the nun passing through the cemetery who stopped to ask about Fallen Timber are the most valuable part of the work I make.  My work is designed to entice a viewer to step out of the fast-paced modern world for a moment, to consider how we exist in the world today and consider the people and situations that shaped who we are.  As such, public reaction to the work is in many ways the best measure of its success.

Vaitsman, Marcia

Website: www.marciavaitsman.com
Bio:

Marcia Vaitsman’s work traces subtle connections between people, their cultural environments and how their choices shape our times, particularly focused on the question of alterity (otherness), which takes forms of breakable floors, distant islands, dark landscapes, temporal objects, invented languages, impossible bodies… This research is not restricted to a socio-cultural observation; sometimes her own images and meanings seem foreign to her. In the final phase of a project a medium is chosen to best support the imaginary created by this investigatory mental process and so starts the production of a book, photography, video or computer program.

Vaitsman, born in Brazil, studied media, art and photography at Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil; Kunsthochschule fuer Medien KHM, Germany; and SCAD, Atlanta. Vaitsman has projects awarded and/or sponsored by the Sao Paulo Biennial Foundation; UNESCO-Ashberg, France; Ministry of Culture, Brazil; IAMAS, Japan; Prince Claus Fund, The Netherlands, among others. Her work has been shown in Asia, Europe, and the Americas.

Bio:

As an artist, my first impressions are drawn directly from the environment.  I spend time at the site, soak up the ambiance, and then after a gestation period, I convert my impressions into stained glass designs.  The results of my methods are easily seen in the Cable Center round window installed at the Barco Library in Denver…..the title is “Cable, Enlightening the Universe” and the design represents the powerful and energetic “explosion” of cable and its far-reaching significance beyond the orb of television.  Another example includes 18 windows for the newly renovated City Hall of Chattanooga, where I symbolically depict the interaction of the river, streams, and mountains, as they play into the vitality of commerce and architecture of the city.  Additional works can be seen at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, the Richmond Convention Center in Richmond, VA, Appalachian State University in Boone, NC, and LeBonheur Women’s Pavilion in Germantown, TN, to name a few.  My qualifications for such commissions rest on my extensive past body of public works and my proven experience in working collaboratively and successfully with clients, architects and contractors, meeting both deadlines and budget constraints.

Walker, Larry

3556 Maple Hill RdPhone: 678.526.7305Fax: 678.526.7305Website: www.Artistregistry.artadia.org
Bio:

Born in Georgia, Larry Walker grew up in New York City. He received a B.S. in Art Education and M.A. in Drawing and Painting from Wayne State University, Detroit, Michigan. Walker married Gwendolyn Howell in 1958 and began a 42-year teaching career during which time he served as an administrator for 18 years (seven years, University of the Pacific, department chair; 11 years, Director of the School of Art and Design at Georgia State University).

Walker’s work is included in numerous private, museum and corporate art collections. His exhibition record is extensive, as is his list of awards, honors and curatorial experiences. His board membership on several art organizations is also extensive. While he does not usually participate in outdoor public art projects he does have work in selected public settings, i.e. Hartsfield/Jackson International Airport.

Much of Walker’s art work over the past several years has evolved from a visual interest in the textured, weathered surfaces of urban walls and the socio-cultural, humanistic dialogue they inspire. His recent work has undergone a modest transition. The idea of a solid surface as a frontal barrier impeding ones passage from one space to another has been modified by a cacophony of material and textural changes that now play a more integral part in setting up spatial compositions.

West, Ansley E.

815 North Island Dr. N.W.Phone: 404.824.4973Website: www.ansleywest.com
Bio:

Ansley West is a fine art photographer who interprets narratives both real and speculative through compositions created with a large format camera. As a conceptual artist, she tells stories through her photographs, often employing models and constructing scenes for each series, to address personal as well as social issues. These themes include the culture of consumption in America, perspectives on mental illness, and the portrayal of females in popular media. West works predominately in black and white to enhance the drama of each scene and to add a surrealistic quality to her images.

Ansley also works in documentary to portray social issues. Her most recent project is a photography and 16mm film series called Mothers of Nation. Mothers of a Nation is about a group of Ugandan women living with HIV who, despite the suffering and isolation that comes with having the disease, have united to empower themselves through sustainable farming methods. The project can be viewed at www.mothersofanation.com

Whyte, Cosmo Doulgas

Website: www.cosmowhyte.com
Bio:

My most current projects deal with the idea of memory, both individual and communal, and myths, those newly created and inherited.

One theme that I explore to investigate these ideas is that of death and its’ ceremonies.  I am interested in the juxtaposition of the private and ritualistic aspects of funerals and their simultaneously public and performative elements.  I am fascinated by the notion of communal grief, whether it is among an extended family, village or nation.  How do the sacred ceremonies around death conflict with our everyday conscious and the instinctual denial of death that happens in our subconscious?  My aim is to make the viewer aware of their position as both a voyeur and participant.

Sacred spaces, in my work, can be both physical and mental, real and imagined.  Memory, the vehicle through which we combat death, plays a key role in the way my artistic narratives unfold.  Whether it be through the fading edges of a charcoal drawing, or the collage of culture specific imagery on a time traveling car, my work attempts to take the viewer backwards and forwards through the timeline of memory, both remembered and invented.

I investigate these themes using oil painting, video animation, photography, site-specific installations, collage, sculpture and drawings.

Winograd, Judy

1722 Vickers CirclePhone: 678.613.6449
Bio:

Judy Winograd has been a practicing artist for many years. First as a costume designer for theater, dance, opera, and art clothing, her work was seen on stages throughout Atlanta and in professional theaters in Georgia for 30 years. Her clothing line, J, DRAGON-ATLANTA was carried in boutiques in Atlanta and Georgetown, VA.  As a visual artist, Winograd has exhibited drawings, paintings, and prints in solo and group shows in Atlanta and its surrounding counties as well as a recent book arts exhibit in Silver Spring MD. An earlier career as a university reference art librarian has been a support and source of inspiration in her life as a visual artist.

Winograd is mainly interested in the human figure and its relationship to its environment, the personal, the public, and the political. Content of her work can be serious or humorous. It often brings a smile to the onlooker and usually evokes a direct response. Winograd’s experience of working with others, as library patrons, as collaborators (designers, actors, directors), as students, as employees, has taught her to see the world through other’s eyes and seek joy in life, in other words, an appreciation of and sympathy for the human condition.

Yancey, Kathy

Website: www.kathyyancey.com
Bio:

All my life my work has looked like me. I have work that I have created over my entire life. My work is autobiographical narratives – using myself to paint about life and loss and love. I have used finding my Prince Charming (I married my husband John at age 19 and took my childhood drawings with me), traveling all over the world, giving birth, getting to know the people who were born to me, dealing with my own life’s travails (miscarriages, mother’s death) and surviving my own serious brush with death as the evolving subject of my work. I paint from the female perspective because it became a way to resist cultural authority and have my own say. Twenty-five of my childhood drawings were exhibited as the centerpiece of the first Biennial of the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center in 2001. Since then they have been exhibited several times in the Southeast. In many ways the creation of this early work was a self therapy to help me survive the death of my mother when I was very young. In my early work I began hot housing the expression of myself by finding a way to imbue my work with the emotion that inspired it. To this day I feel that my best work accomplishes this. I’m an intimist striving to make the personal relevant – telling the story of women through my own.
