Chastain Arts Center Spring Show and Sale, May 15 – June 12, 2015

Maritime Secrets Revealed Everyday Heroes 30"" x 40"" Oil on canvas 2015 $2895 (framed)


The annual Spring Art Show and Sale is here again, a delightful show. In this spring’s exhibition, I am showing my recently completed oil on canvas, ‘Maritime Secrets Revealed”.

The exhibition features paintings, drawings, and mixed-media two dimensional works, that range from realism, still-life, plein-air, to abstraction.  Additionally, there are some of the best pieces of jewelry and ceramic sculpture/utilitarian works I’ve seen anywhere and they are priced to sell. 30% of the purchase price goes directly to the upkeep of the historical building.

Did you know that Chastain Arts Center was originally The Fulton County black almshouse, built in 1909? This white frame building is also in the classical revival tradition and features a covered portico around its L-shape layout. The black almshouse continued to operate until 1968, when it was sold to the City of Atlanta. Shortly thereafter, the Chastain Arts Center began operating under the Department of Parks and Recreation. A new pottery wing and additional structural renovations to the roof and porches were made in 1978. Another renovation effort in the late 1980’s created a professional gallery space in the old prisoner/caretaker quarters.

Join us for the opening reception on Friday, May 15 from 6-8pm. Chastain Art Center and Gallery is located at 135 W Wieuca Rd NW, Atlanta, Georgia 30342. For more information about Chastain Arts Center visit: For more info about it’s history, visit:
