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 Marietta that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Even though I was mainly trained in traditional art my whole life I had always worked on computers and created digitally from a young age. I saw how digital the world has become and felt like getting a Digital Arts degree seemed the ‘most sensible.’ Read more>>
