New Faces, New Art

An artful evening on Marietta Square.

I had the pleasure of meeting several new artists at the last Art Walk at Marietta Square. I love all of the new artwork they’re showing at the Art Forum!

Art Around Every Corner of Marietta Square

My jaw dropped when I walked around the corner of Cherokee at Marietta Square this afternoon.

Brian is painting this humongous backdrop for Fiddler on the Roof  at the Earl Smith Strand Theatre next week.

Wet paint rocks!

With inspiration around every corner, Marietta Square is the place for artists to be!

The Magic of Art on Marietta Square

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, the art scene at Marietta Square is growing rapidly. With the outdoor markets coming to a close, I’ve had a few minutes to reflect on what a magical year it’s been. I am thankful for all of the new people I’ve met, and for finding a place where artists can thrive.

The morning was chilly for the November Artists Market, but that didn’t stop these friendly artists from coming out to Mill Street to share their wonderful creations.

Art Opening at Michael Turner Studio

The Michael Turner Studio is a fabulous new addition to Historic Marietta Square’s “Red Door District.” I had a great time meeting the artists last night in this old warehouse space behind the Art Forum at DuPre’s Antique Market.

I love this photo by Michael Turner of a Georgia swamp.

Art Lights Up the Night at Marietta Square’s September Art Walk

It was a lovely night to visit the First Friday Art Walk at Marietta Square. I started my evening outside Marietta Wine Market, playing some fiddle and displaying art along with Robert East and Irene Bernhardt, both with the Art Forum at DuPre’s Antique Market.

As the sun went down, the windows along the Square came alive with color.

Follow the signs -- There's always more to see at the Art Walk.

Paint the Town is a colorful treat.

It's a celebration at 2 Rules Fine Art!

I’m so glad I had a chance to visit 2 Rules Fine Art for their grand opening celebration. I immediately fell in love with Kay Vinson’s mixed media pieces, which included phone book and dictionary pages. Stephanie Rond also had some wonderfully creative work with book pages. The entire gallery is a delight, all the way back to the far wall, where I found the incredible relief prints by Hannah Skoonbers.

Mark your calendars now for the last Art Walk of the year, on October 7th. See you there!

It’s Hip to be Square

The Art Forum’s own Irene Bernhardt and Kee Carlisle got to show off their art recently in a series of clips on Fox 5 News about Marietta Square. Watch to hear more about the Arts Renaissance here in Historic Downtown Marietta.

The artists are in the 3rd segment, so click on the image, go grab a cup of coffee and enjoy.
