Women In Focus values each individual member for the unique contributions that she brings to the organization and strives to provide all members with the resources that they need to thrive as artists.

Opening Reception: Sat, Oct 6, 7pm

Five nationally known artists based in the south and specialize in photo manipulation, dark imagery & surrealistic portraiture.

Jeffery Scott (AKA 1019) creates photographic images that stretch boundaries and redefine standards. His photographic works are powerful juxtapositions of light and darkness.

Dividing Me Photography (Rusty James) is a North Carolina based Artist who specializes in dark, whimsical emotive imagery. His work is often timeless in its historical placement and ambiguous in its intention.

Thomas Dodd is an Atlanta-based photographer/ digital artist whose work blurs the line between photography and classical art. He has pioneered and popularized a method he calls "Painting with Photography". His work displayed in galleries around the world.

John Santerineross is an (Athens) artist who does not classify or categorize himself; he prefers to let the viewer decide and define his work. He has been called “the world’s leading Neo-symbolist photographer” by Germany’s leading photography magazine, PROFIFOTO.

The DornBrothers (Atlanta) A brother team whose conceptual and imaginative work often titers towards the lighter side of imagery. Always dramatic, their portraits often seem like they were cut from a old Hollywood movie or a Far Side Cartoon.
