Who are the five artists featured in our newest show? Well, we’ll give you a hint: they’re immensely talented artists, all strong-willed and driven women – and they’re all at the top of their art game. We’re hosting them in a group show this coming Friday evening, April 26th, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the gallery.
We’ve been working on this show for a while and these five seemed to be a natural fit for it – their work is artistically complementary but stands alone in its originality and creativity. We admire them tremendously for their talent, dedication and professionalism – and did we mention, they all get along like a house on fire, offering each other guidance, advice and collectively cheering each other on as they grow their art careers?
What else? Our clients have adored them for years and their work collectively hangs all over Atlanta, the Southeast and in plenty of other corners of the country.
Take a peek at what we’ll have hanging in honor of the five:
Melissa Payne Baker has been one of our best-selling, most popular artists for almost a decade – and we’ve really loved watching her work evolve and mature. Her exuberant and joyful abstracts are loose and harmonious and we’re just crazy about them. We did a little blog about her a couple weeks ago and you can read it here.
Andrea Costa’s deep-rooted love affair with land and water is the inspiration for her luminous and masterful landscapes which some clients swear possess a magical power to lift spirits and offer a serene respite on the canvas. We’ve always loved her unique perspective that draws you – and doesn’t let go.
We also adore her fun and vibrant abstracts that pack an artistic punch.
Geri Eubanks, who began painting as a teen, is now creating as quickly as she can to keep up with the demand for her lovely figures beautifully rendered in oils. She recently added the barn to her subject repertoire and the results are exquisite.
Dawne Raulet, a former stockbroker turned artist, also has legions of fans who are drawn to her photography, wax and media pieces that capture the very soul of her sweet little subjects.
And finally (but never least!) Augusta Wilson, armed with a BFA from the University of Georgia and a MFA from SCAD, loves to create abstracts that bridge the gap between art that feels accessible and art that is thought-provoking. She does this with creative composition applied thoughtfully on her mixed media canvases. Her palette is always interesting and usually has a touch of our favorite “alien” color (a color that is completely unexpected but completely appropriate.)
We’ll have fifty new paintings up on the walls for you to enjoy on Friday evening. We hope you’ll join us to meet these five amazing artists, powerhouses and all-around fabulous women. (Oh, and of course, we’ll have sips and nibbles, too.)
It’s going to be an evening of pure art magic.
