ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Simone Wilson

Simone Wilson art

Wilson is a mixed media artist and a native of Georgia. She primarily works in wood, steel, paint and found objects.

Inspiration has come from growing up in the South, the many hours spent in her mother's and grandmother's kitchens, her love of gardening, the southern landscape and of animals. All these inspirations can often be seen in her paintings and the images she creates in steel and wood.
_______

Katherine Linn


Linn Art

Katherine Linn is an Atlanta printmaker whose work focuses on nostalgic architectural landmarks around the South.

 

The works she creates are linocuts, images printed by hand from linoleum blocks. Each image begins with a drawing that is transferred onto a block of linoleum. Using hand tools, she carves out the white areas in the block. The areas left uncarved appear as blacks in the resulting print. When the carving is completed, the block is inked and run through a printmaking press. Each time the block is printed, an original work of art is produced. Some images are hand colored using watercolors. Her subject matter comes from the urban landscape, depicting older buildings and street scenes with particular attention paid to old signage.



The exhibit opens on Friday, June 8 at 6 p.m. with a reception to meet the artists. It is free and open to the public.  It will remain open through July 13 and is assessable by calling 678-421-2048, 678-421-2049 or 678-421-2025 when staff is on duty, Monday - Sunday.
