Gallery Walk

February 25 – May 29, 2019

Flowers make people healthy and happy. It has been scientifically proven that those who surround themselves with flowers have reduced levels of stress and anxiety and are overall more joyful and appreciative people. Some flowers are even known to have healing properties. Lavender, jasmine, rose and marigold are amongst the many flowers that have been proven to help people with a wide variety of physical ailments. These remarkable benefits make flowers one of nature’s most beautiful and useful natural resources.
Because of their inherent beauty and overall health perks, flowers have always been a rich source of inspiration for artists. Throughout the centuries, countless numbers of artworks have been adorned with their colorful blossoms, leaves, bouquets, and blooms. Sometimes decorative yet oftentimes spiritual, these artworks portray the transformative and restorative power of the flower. The artworks in this exhibition reflect how contemporary artists continue to seek inspiration within the petals of the flower.

Landmark ATL
August 6 – November 8, 2018

Every major city has at least a few sites and locations that are instantly recognizable as being a landmark. These places are unique and serve as part of the signature identity of that city. Atlanta has quite a few landmarks that define the identity and character of the “ATL.” For some, it is the sweeping forested vistas and the vast tree canopies that are distinctive to the city. For others, it is the iconic buildings (both old and new), restaurants, signs, and globally recognizable brands sprinkled throughout the city that characterize Atlanta. This combination of both natural and man-made landmarks frequently serves as inspiration for artists who wish to capture the visual allure and spirit of Atlanta. This exhibition highlights the work of six artists that each captures Atlanta’s landmarks in a unique and distinctive way.
