Maggie Benoit’s objective is to produce enriching experiences that bolster the arts alongside entrepreneurial efforts in Atlanta. Her focus is to strengthen a community driven network, a conversation, a connection to resources and a place for beings to express constructively. This way the individual and community grow by staying curious, asking questions, creating solutions, as well as learning constructs of both personal and social space. The question arises, “how does one define the ability to connect the intimately personal to another tangibly?” Such an expression means finding love for self, love for another, love for something that holds meaning. Sharing said experience defines a landscape of varied media through intentional integration of work and life.
Matthew Evans is an experimental painter and muralist based in Atlanta, Georgia.
Max Beeching is a mixed-media, Atlanta-based studio artist attracted to the rough, rugged, and raw side of life. From particle board dumped out by construction sites, to the pavement of the streets, Beeching sees raw beauty in these elements of humanity that are often discarded and overlooked. Beeching combines photography, sculpture and painting in order to fully convey this point. He believes it is his personal task to dissect, examine and reveal the true beauty of these elements for everyone to see and appreciate. He also enjoys spreading love for creating to anyone that is interested. That is why he volunteers at community art workshops around Atlanta such as Remerge. Getting people together for the sake of foraging relationships and collaborating is most important as an artist.
