ABOUT THE EVENT

METROPOLITAN STUDIOS

Join The Atlanta Theatre Artists for Justice and Metropolitan Studios for Paint Georgia Blue: An Artist Market and Fundraising event to benefit election support efforts and candidates Reverend Warnock, Jon Ossoff, and Daniel Blackman. 

Spend the day supporting local artists by shopping their wares, grab some hot cocoa or warm apple cider by the fire and take in speeches from folks keyed into our local politics, advocacy groups, and more!

Our goal is to raise $1500 for election day supplies/support that is organized by The Atlanta Theatre Artists for Justice and Metropolitan Studios. We provide line warming, water, snacks, and more across 650 Metro Atlanta precincts to voters standing in line to make sure that all #ATLVotesCount. If you are looking for a way to get involved with helping make voters heard on January 5th, we will have folks onsite to sign up volunteers!

All funds received over $1500 will be donated to the Warnock, Ossoff, and Blackman campaigns. 

This is an outdoor event requiring the use of masks and maintaining appropriate social distancing.

I have been a practicing potter for the last 20 years.  I throw white stoneware clay on an electric wheel.  For raku, I create original artistic designs and patterns.  I then fire pieces in a raku kiln, using traditional raku firing techniques, such as smoke in a reduction chamber. Wood fired pieces are fired in an anagama kiln.  I plan to continue to create works of art for the foreseeable future.

Hey, I’m Jennifer, an Atlanta based artist and photographer. It’s taken me years to perfect my process, and I feel lucky to see pieces of my life’s biggest relationships within my work every day. As the daughter of a construction man and the wife of a builder, the remnants of construction projects, like sheet metal and wood, have always been a facet in my life. The day I realized I could make them part of my artistic process, something in the universe aligned.
