Founded in Fall 2011, Glean was inspired by Shannon’s love of handmade and repurposed design. To glean is to gather laboriously, bit by bit. Using fabrics culled from vintage sources, Shannon’s designs seek to realize the full potential of discarded items and marry the ideas of style and sustainability. The brand is an ever-changing line of clothing, accessories, kid and household items based on gleaned textiles.

Plus, guns for arms.

BJ Rathur

BJ RATHUR – When I graduated college with a BFA in Computer Animation I had no intention of being a painter. I had hoped to get a job locally in animation but that didn’t pan out. Instead I took a job in touch screen design in Alpharetta, Georgia. Our work was cyclical and during the free time I would doodle with a pen on my notepads. After about 2 years of this, my colleagues encouraged me to do more. My boss gave me a set of Rapidograph drafting pens and I was in heaven. I loved the .25 pen and went to work immediately creating small but intricate drawings with as much hidden imagery as I could stuff in them. Eventually I took up acrylic painting gradually improved at that too. I enjoy the freedom of creating whatever comes to mind, although, there is often a connection between my work and science.

Amy Prasad

AMY PRASAD – I started painting as a hobby while I was practicing law at a large law firm. After several years and a lot of soul-searching I left the practice of law to focus on painting. I’m not sure what the future has in store for me, but, instead of viewing painting as something to do in the meantime, I now try to make meaningful art one piece at a time.

B.J. Rathur

B.J. RATHUR – I paint what I like. I don’t like to limit myself with too many rules. I work in pen & ink and acrylic, taking inspiration from nature, science, and space. I have been drawing since childhood, but refined my skills soon after college about ten years ago. I didn’t start painting heavily until about 5 years ago. My last show was in 2009 at the Douglasville Art Center. I graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in computer animation. The degree required drawing but not painting courses. That foundation helped when I ventured into painting but for the most part I taught myself how to paint. You can learn anything with the help of the internet.

Davy Minor

Amy Armour

AMY ARMOUR – I have always been drawn to my memories and experiences of adolescence. It is the physical and emotionally charged world of children and adolescents that continually inspires me to create environments that reflect layers of contradictions. I see this period as an age where the unknown, curiosity, and excitement live side by side with fear, awkwardness and growth spurts as adulthood looms on the horizon. I have found that the natural world of animal and plant life, with its constant activities of growth, survival, play, and decay enables me to best explore and reflect these contradictions.

Nathan Phaneuf

NATHAN PHANEUF – I’ve been doing stencil art for only a few years. After I purchased a home of my own, I realized that I needed to fill it’s walls with nice artwork. After a meditation retreat leaving me with a burst of creative energy, I came across the medium of stencil art and knew that it would be the perfect fit for me to demonstrate ideas that I have in my head; as my illustrative ability is quite poor. However, working for an advertising agency I am surrounded by talented graphic designers and knowledge of programs such as InDesign and Photoshop that will allow me to manipulate fonts and images to piece together layouts that I can then execute with stencils and aerosol. I fell in love with the medium and dedicated myself to pushing the boundaries of its creativity.

evereman

EVEREMAN is a street artist working in Atlanta, Ga. I began my street art career in 1981 here in Atlanta. The Evereman project was born in 2003 and has come to be something of a study of human social interaction. Evereman is about sharing and giving, as opposed to taking. Evereman is about co-operation, as opposed to competition. Evereman is art for all. I believe that seeing this easily recognizable image in public can help people feel less alone in our modern society.

Ashley Anderson

ASHLEY ANDERSON – In the summer of 2003, as I began studying painting and philosophy, I realized the games of my childhood were untapped sources of imagery which could effectively address topics completely separate from gaming. Since then, I have widened my pool of source imagery to include old computer graphics, message board icons, and cell phone menus. I love pixellated imagery. I think it’s beautiful in its own right whether it’s from a cell phone menu, a computer desktop, or an old video game. The images demand a centrality of color and value, a keen understanding of drawing, and a steady hand. Beyond traditional painting and drawing, in recent years I have broadened my application of raster imagery to Photoshop collages and physical, built objects based on forms found in the digital realm. I choose many of my subjects based on their relationship with the ways in which we pictorially understand our world and/or the way our visual environment is cultivated by external forces or interests. I am particularly drawn to images resonant with advertising, visual memory, identity, violence, and common art cliches. I also like the idea of transforming totally unimportant, usually decorative digital elements into singular, physical objects of unusual value; it’s funny! I received my BFA in Painting (cum laude) from Georgia Southern University in 2005. I have shown work in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Boston, and St. Louis. I am also a licensee 2K Tshirts in Los Angeles which prints designs by a wide range of artists including Yoko Ono, Devendra Banhart, Barry McGee, Yoshitomo Nara, and Milton Glaser.
