Thought-Provokers: Buckhead

Atlanta has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Buckhead that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Joel Barr

I was in my 40’s when I began to paint. Always a viewer and admirer of the visual arts, it had never crossed my mind that being an artist was a possibility for me. Instead, my creative energies went into writing. Read more>>

Kelley Ogburn

Technology kept it just out of reach for me. I preferred the hands on approach to creating – becoming fully involved and fully immersed in the creation. Early in my design career, this gap ignited the desire to begin painting again. Read more>>

Lacey Longino

My mother was also always encouraging us to go play outside or create something out of popsicle sticks in our basement that had pink shag carpet. Maybe thats why I love pink so much, haha. Read more>>

Barry Vangrov

I’m a completely self-taught photographer. I can’t remember exactly what started my interest but I began taking photographs in college in Arizona. Coming from the midwest I was fascinated by the desert and started photographing the strange landscape. Read more>>

 Peter Roux

Visual art quickly became the language I felt most comfortable with, and most compelled to use. It calmed me, and the world made more sense through it. Read more>>

Lisa Upchurch Moore

I had many things in my favor that allowed me to develop my creativity and skills as a painter, but the fundamental pieces are growing up without a lot of restriction, having a southern soul and having a sense of myself. Read more>>

Tia J Cronin

I have loved art since I opened my very first box of brand new, gleaming Crayolas way back in the 1960’s! I took every art class I could in school and even studied Graphic Design in college, but I didn’t pursue art as a career. Read more>>

Danelle Jamtgaard

I started painting a year and a half ago. After my nest emptied, I moved to the city from a rural area and had too much time on my hands. I fell in love with acrylics and have been exploring every medium I can get my hands on. Read more>>
