Featured Artist: Marie Matthews

March 13, 2013

oakland_setzer_oil_300The Diana Brehm Williams art gallery at the Cobb Chamber features artists in rotation, and is pleased to bring an Atlanta resident to the cultural spotlight. This month, we look at Marie Matthews, award-winning painter and mobile photographer.

Marie Matthews decided after a 20-year career in technology to follow her true passion and become an artist. Since she began exhibiting her work in 2005, Matthews has rapidly emerged as one of the premier watercolorists in Georgia. She achieved signature membership in the Georgia Watercolor Society in the minimum amount of time possible, and has won awards in the majority of juried shows entered.

Matthews teaches classes on figure painting, iPhone photography, portrait painting and plein aire painting in watercolor at Chastain Arts Center in Atlanta. In addition, her workshops in Atlanta and throughout Georgia are met with rave reviews. In 2012, Matthews’ iPhone photography was featured in the Los Angeles Times, MacWorld and other publications.

oakland_angel_acrylic1_300Matthews has also been affiliated with professional organizations including the Atlanta Artists Center as a member of excellence and 2005 New Member Volunteer of the Year, the Georgia Watercolor Society as a signature member, life member, past president and webmaster, the Southern Watercolor Society as a signature member, and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America as the former web designer and board member.

Join us in celebrating an emerging local artist and be sure to visit the Cobb Chamber to see her work on display!
