Here come sustainability artists and art-science innovators, trespassing the boundaries of the possible.

Some artists focus on their work’s sustainable materials or […]

The East Meets West Exhibit at the Grandview Gallery in Atlanta is on exhibit now, with the first round of floral arrangements by Ikebana International on display. My painting is pictured below with its corresponding floral interpretation.

Juried Watercolor Exhibit

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.17.2″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text] The amazingly-named Sautee Nacoochee cultural center is hosting the Georgia Watercolor Society juried member show, now through November 18th. The juror was the abstract watercolor artist Carol Frye. She gave members a demonstration of her techniques before the reception that was on October 14th at the center. Sautee Nacoochee is about 4 miles south of Helen (windmill pictured above), that interesting and strange little alpine-themed city in north Georgia that tourists love. Below are some photos from the artist demo and the art exhibit.
