Thought-Provokers: Norcross

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

Dana Tolbert

I’ve been drawn to the arts for as long as I can remember. As a child in Connecticut, I used to spend a lot of time at my grandmother’s house and she was an artist so at a very early age I was exposed to different materials and given the opportunity to create as freely and as frequently as I wanted to. Read more>>

Josh Trejo

I’ve been interest in art since I was a wee lad. I wasn’t a prodigy or anything, but I’ve always enjoyed creating. In my teens I was always drawing and in high school I was that kid that would walk around with a drawing notebook. You know, drawing at lunch and in class and shit. Read more>>
