The Art House in Buckhead

Today, Carly Hardy and I decided we would visit some galleries in the Buckhead (Atlanta) and Marietta GA area. The galleries we visited were Vinings Gallery, The Art House, Lagerquist Gallery, Anne Irwin and the other galleries on Bennett Street along with TULA, and then up to Marietta to visit Frameworks Gallery.

We enjoyed the whole day -- saw many beautiful pieces of art .... and also saw some new artists that we have looked up on the internet to see more of their work. Some wonderful work!!!!

But, this post is about the new gallery we visited in Buckhead .... The Art House. We enjoyed all the art, the jewelry and the owner, Debi Lamb. I think we spent at least an hour just talking! I told Debi I enjoyed it so much, and we would be back .... but I wanted her permission to post something here on my blog about the gallery. I asked if I could copy some the "story" from her web site...... so here is that story.

"As lovers of all things creative, unique and original ~ we wanted to bring art and art lovers together in a warm, inviting and relaxed environment. After many successful years of representing artists for charity events from our carriage house, we knew it was time to find a permanent location. A charming 1938 cottage in the heart of Buckhead found us!

Our "boutique" gallery showcases the works of local and regional artists in all styles and mediums. We represent painters in oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor as well as encaustics, collage and mixed media. Potters, ceramists, wood-turners, jewelers, metal-smiths, fiber and glass artisans display their latest creations. Cutting edge photography and sculpture is here. Because we have loved mixing traditional with abstract, wood with clay, photography with fiber in our own home ~ we display the same mix of styles & genres in the gallery. It works!

If you are not on our mail/email list, check out our Contact Page to add your name. For gallery hours/location, check out our Directions Page. We offer our clientele beautiful creations from unique gifts to fabulous fibers to treasured originals. We hope you enjoy the art, the space we created and your experience at the The Art House. Debi and William Lamb"
