Contemporary Talks presents a conversation series with our artists in the Studio Artist Program. 

To kick off this exciting new program, we are inviting Jane Garver Foley—whose work is featured on the Studio Artist Program wall through July 30—to present about her current body of work and her experience with artist residencies.

Our Studio Artist Program supports local working artists by providing subsidized studio space and by fostering a collaborative environment supportive of the creative process. The Studio Artist Wall is generously supported by Georgia State University, The Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design.
