Traditional original fine art from the mid-1600's to the present
The gallery specializes in color etchings by Luigi Kasimir, his wife Tanna Kasimir Hoernes, and their son Robert Kasimir.
Avery Gallery welcomes international photo-journalist Scott MacQuarrie from Ontario, Canada for the May 3 Artwalk. He is currently focused on large format fine art photography and extreme landscapes in particular. His latest body of work from Antarctica has collected five national and international awards so far.
Scott is very active in professional photography organizations and has been a member of the Canadian Association of Journalists (CAJ) for almost ten years. In 2008, the PPA awarded him the coveted CPP degree, held by less than ten photographers in Canada and less than 2,000 worldwide. In 2010, he was awarded general (voting) membership in the ASMP. Besides, the PPA and ASMP, he is also a member of PPOC, APA-EP, EP-Canada, and EP-UK. He was recently invited to join the X-Rite Coloratti community, a select group of currently 80 photographers considered to be experts in color.
In addition to being a world-renowned photographer, Scott is also Autistic. After being diagnosed at the age of 46, he realized that he had taught himself many of the same coping skills educators now teach children.
He was also worried about whether to tell anyone and whether it may change people's opinions of his work. A conversation with another photographer friend changed his mind. The friend was worried about his son who was autistic and whether or not he would thrive in life.
Scott decided that the real value of his experiences would be for younger autistics to understand that autism comes with some benefits and that they can do whatever they want to do in life
Scott will also be available on Saturday, May 4, for talks concerning autism and the arts throughout the day at Avery Gallery. Please contact us for more information.
A taste of GG's Creole Cuisine will be served and refreshments will be available. Parking is free in our parking lot next to our building.
The 2013 Artwalk season kicked off on Friday, April 5 in Marietta! Marlan Yoder was our first artist and author. Live acoustic music was provided by JUNGOL, a local Atlanta band, featuring his twin sons, Josh and Graham.
Yoder's style crosses the lines of surrealism, abstract, and impressionism while rendering his own brand of pointillism in the process. As you gaze at his landscapes, the deeper messages become clear. His book, "The Muck Memoirs", is a fictional coming of age story based on Yoder's youth.
JUNGOL, a local Atlanta band, two of whose members are sons of the artist/author played live rock and electronic ambient music. They played at SXSW 2012 in Austin, TX and have been noted and praised by several magazines for their music.
