Community Art / Local Artists

Jeff Mather visits the Avondale Arts Alliance


At our January board meeting, we invited Jeff Mather, environmental artist/site sculptor, to give a presentation on how we can sponsor a community art project in Avondale Estates. He showed us some amazing projects including a community-based sculpture for the Clarkston Community Center. Designed and fabricated in partnership with the diverse communities in Clarkston, including refugees from many countries (Clarkston is a relocation center) and high school art students from the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf. The project was centered around a huge buttercup oak with an emphasis on how this tree serves as a metaphor. A gathering place, a hub of community. Look what the community designed! Wouldn’t it be great for our community to participate in such a meaningful project that connects to our community?
