Newcomer Artist Spotlighted at ArtWorks on Square in Fayetteville

Atlanta contemporary artist Elizabeth Talmadge brought strong, colorful work to “ArtWorks on the Square” in Fayetteville on June 4th.

The unique studio-gallery-art class and café facility on the square in Fayetteville attracts a diverse talent of artists and consumers as it offers classes and a café respite for art fanciers.

The summer exhibit spotlighted newcomer Elizabeth Talmadge who has a working studio in Atlanta and lives part-time at her family’s horse farm in Hampton. Talmadge studied art at Oglethorpe University and Sotheby’s Institute of Fine and Decorative Arts in, London, England. She also attended the University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England and has worked in the art restoration field and managed an art gallery in Chattanooga.

Now a full-time working artist, she creates stimulating mixed-media paintings on canvas. Free expression, vivid color, and raw texture mesh to produce the avant-garde element present in all her works.

Talmadge’s participation in the Fayetteville gallery attracted out-of-area attendance from Atlanta and (other cities or areas) for the weekend show and she comments, “It is exciting and rewarding to have my work shown in this venue with other local artists. The gallery displays a wide variety of works and offers collectors and viewers the opportunity to study and purchase exceptional pieces.”

Kathaleen Brewer is owner and director of ArtWorks on the Square, 107 Stonewall Ave., Fayetteville, GA 30214. For show hours and other information, call 678-545-0275.
