Donna Mintz (born Gainesville, Georgia, 1956) is a visual artist whose painting and installation is a meditation on memory, time, and place. Her work can be found in the permanent collections of such institutions as the High Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia, and the Mobile Museum of Art, where her painting hangs in the ongoing exhibition American Art: 1945 to the Present. Her essays and reviews have appeared in the Sewanee Review, Sculpture magazine, and the arts journals Burnaway.org and ArtsATL.org where she is a regular contributor.
Mintz is a past writer-in-residence at Rivendell Writers’ Colony and a fellow at the Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences, for which she co-wrote and co-edited The Hambidge Center: 80 Years in the Making (2014), a book celebrating its 80-year history as an artists’ residency. She holds an MFA from Sewanee’s School of Letters at the University of the South and recently completed a book on the life of the writer James Agee.
She is delighted to be a studio artist at Atlanta Contemporary.
