Each year this event grows in the number of artist it attracts. This year we have several new artists and the return of local favorites with new works. So come out on Saturday to meet the artists and to enjoy over 70 pieces of art. This is a free event and the artist would enjoy your support.
Gilmer Arts is happy to introduce the exceptional artwork of Anthony Abreu to our gallery. His work embraces the best of what Southern culture and heritage have to offer.
Born in Tampa, Florida this talented artist spends his time between the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia and Central Florida, enjoying the best of both worlds. His oil paintings and watercolors capture your heart and your attention. His attention to detail is captivating, his subjects speak to the heart, and his gifted talents are representative in every piece he presents.
Anthony’s work brings you from the excitement of horse racing at Church Hill Downs to the horse farms of the South. He effortlessly captures the grace, beauty and spirit of these magnificent animals. As he explains, “painting horses gives me the chance to capture on canvas, their power, their spirit, their beauty, and the thunder of the ground as they gallop towards you”.
His painting of fly rods, fishing hats and, of course, the ultimate catch speak to his love of the sport and he brings it to life in his fly fishing series. His paintings of Famous Women from History are not to be missed, and are featured in the George Link, Jr. Gilmer Arts Playhouse!
In true Southern tradition that speaks to the heart, Anthony captures gentle moments, and presents southern culture at its best. Living in the South is a dream come true for this artist. Sharing his talent and his visions in a piece of his artwork is fantastic for the rest of us!
