Artists: 2009 Telephone Factory Art Show Atlanta

I'm participating in Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch. Thanks to Susan! This used to be a telephone factory and it was built to last. Now it's an art, design, and coolness factory. Once a year we get a look inside. Design fans, you'll want to see the a few pictures of a French style collection in the postscript.

Fun art...

I did the Telephone Factory Art Show on Sunday. (I did the Fulton Cotton and Bag Mill tour on Saturday). Mark your calendar for next year: First weekend in December, great loft buildings, great lofts, great art, great people, great time.

    You do get around, and you love art, and you are so on the ball.

  6. I started to tell you my favorites, but that seems silly when I rename over half of the artists you just mentioned! So I''l keep it at this-I found Jennifer Henley's work extremely interesting as well as attractive. I liked her merge of found object and paint. I also felt moved by the large blue paintings by Mathew Mayes. So much texture and impact. Oh and of course I am a sucker for Poindexter's work, architecture photographed in such away that it becomes graphic. What else can I say! I also love that you captured the parts of Caryn's place that I left out-those images are so strong with the bold gratifies and next to to the fragile teacups and crystal. Caryn's pretty awesome, huh!

    Fabulous show with SOooooo many pieces. Hard to look at everything. Nice that each artist was allowed so many pieces in the show.
