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.

He encouraged me to pursue my lifelong dream of learning how to use a DSLR. Read more>>

My work is represented in the Atlanta area by Anne Irwin Fine Art. For me, what may be unique about my story, is that I’m not so much moved by color as I am by the feeling my art provides. Read more>>

Elise Morris

I’ve long since realized that I needed to un-learn all the rules to make my own work, working intuitively with color and materials to build layers in my paintings. I’m always interested in pushing the work, playing with color and simply being present with each piece as I create it. Read more>>
