Dylan Pierce if a Marietta native who is currently working and living in Atlanta. Pierce has been painting for over twenty years. He studied at the diDomizio Art Center for ten years. Legacy of Hope: Studies in Africa are pieces inspired by his travels to Swaziland, Botswana, and South Africa. His sensitive renderings evoke the majesty of wildlife and the strength and spirituality of African natives. Alfred Conteh’s is an Atlanta artist. Conteh’s exhibition depicts his evolving methods and themes throughout his career through realistic portraiture and symbolic abstraction. His work aims to expand understanding of the dynamic and complicated Black American experience. The pieces generate a deeply emotional and topical conversation.
