Live art & Exhibition by Michelle Fontaine
We are also exhibiting the work of Michelle Fontaine, a local Athens artist who is donating her time to join us every Tuesday (except March 22nd) to paint art live in the tasting room which she will donate for an auction to benefit our Get Comfortable Fund.
"My purpose as a painter is to exercise the paint itself as a language to communicate themes of dualities, anxieties, feeling, and vision. These subjects float around each other in a single space, sometimes as half-formed or hidden thoughts. Each work created serves as an important stepping stone in the journey of self discovery. This creative process is a pathway that helps me understand more about myself, what it means to be a painter in this world, and how to survive in times of apprehension. .
...Work I regularly view/research include: Andrew Salgado, Natalie Frank, Jenny Saville, Gauguin, Klee, John Wentz, Lucian Freud, Lou Ros, Conor Harrington, Dan Voinea, Kristin Baker, Julien Spianti, Casey Baugh, Malcolm Lipke." - Michelle Fontaine
