Jeanine's artistic shot of me and Jason
Although much of the work that was on display was beautiful, only two artists really grabbed my attention.
The first artist was Eddie Maier of Eddie Spaghetti Art. When I arrived at his booth, he was giving a demonstration of how to create an ink print using organic materials like a stem of grass. (He even let me try my hand at it!) His work consisted of single wood block prints and the use of reduction printing. When I reviewed his portfolio of work, I was drawn to his ability to make earthy and organic drawings. I've always been drawn to printing and would love to try it one day.
The second artist I encountered was Yvonne Miller of Four Footed Art. Her booth was filled with so much color and texture that I just had to purchase a print! Although she primarily paints pet portraits, her other work is just as vibrant and fun. And did I mention she was super friendly as well? A portion of the proceeds she makes from her art goes to the Atlanta Humane Society.
If you have the opportunity to go, make your way down to Artsplosure. You never know what treasures you will find and which new artists you will come to adore.
"The artist's world is limitless. It can be found anywhere,
far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep."
