Opening reception: FLUX NIGHT Atlanta - Oct 6
Artist's reception: Castleberry Hill Art Stroll- Oct 12

Special Thanks to Trinity Productions!

Featured Artists:

Jeffery Scott (AKA 1019) This creator's photographic images stretch boundaries and redefine standards. His photographic works are powerful juxtapositions of light and darkness.


Dividing Me Photography (Rusty James) This North Carolina based Artist specializes in dark, whimsical emotive imagery. His work is often timeless in its historical placement and ambiguous in its intention.


Thomas Dodd This Atlanta-based photographer/ digital artist blurs the line between photography and classical art. He has pioneered and popularized a method he calls "Painting with Photography". His work displayed in galleries around the world.


John Santerineross This (Athens) artist refiuses to classify or categorize himself; he prefers to let the viewer decide and define his work. He has been called “the world’s leading Neo-symbolist photographer” by Germany’s leading photography magazine, PROFIFOTO.


The DornBrothers (Atlanta) This brother team's conceptual and imaginative work titers towards the lighter side of imagery. Always dramatic, their portraits often seem like they were cut from a old Hollywood movie or a Far Side Cartoon.

Dressing A Canvas: Expressed in Color & Graphics
Artist & celebrity stylist Melissa Laskin

Abstract paintings on unstretched, raw canvas
Abstract tee’s from her t-shirt line, Elvis Laskn
Red carpet worthy sequined dresses
All apparel are genuine pieces of art inspired by her own paintings

A celebrity stylist in LA for 15 years, Melissa has worked with clients, such as Brad Pitt, Leo Di Caprio, Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Hilary Swank, Will Smith, Annie Lennox and Keith Urban Her work appears on red carpets, award shows and over 40 fashion covers.

Melissa has been painting since the age of 2. She has a degree in fashion design from Bauder College in Atlanta.

Her further exploration of art was a result of therapy for injuries from a car accident. She took to acrylics immediately. Her technique of painting is unlike other artists, as she paints on a flat surface rather than an easel to accommodate her injuries.

“Drawing on my long career as a fashion stylist, my art is inspired by mixing colors, textures, and use that as an expression of my art. Fashion begins with color…its the first aspect that people notice. My first inspiration is color, then pattern, then texture…as if I am dressing a canvas.”

“Expressions: Jorge Arcos”

From Mexico City, where his father was a landscape artist, Jorge Arcos has always seen art as part of himself. Jorge holds a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Mexico. An Atlanta based artist, he focuses on abstract, figurative, mixed media and murals.

“In Mr. Arcos’ work, one witnesses the pinnacle of what makes for successful abstraction. He is extraordinarily adept at intricate application of paint and color pattering. His palette cannot be overemphasized; it is expressive to the highest degree and effectively communicates a mood.” – Ruthie Tucker, Curator NYC
