At STEEL + PLANK we love showcasing original contemporary art.
We've hosted gatherings in tandem with ATHICA and plan to continue doing so going forward.
We have a line up of potters, painters and artists scheduled out for the year. Coming up in April we will be hosting several local fiber artists. Sign up for our mailer to get the details once they are announced.
Erin McIntosh was the first artist to collaborate with STEEL + PLANK. Erin is a local Athens emerging artist with work at Gregg Irby Gallery in Atlanta, Weinberger Fine Art in Kansas City, MO and currently at Steel + Plank. We've thoroughly enjoyed showcasing (and selling!) her work. More about Erin on our Makers page.
LATE SUMMER 2018
We love Athens in the summer. Things are slower, more laid back, and we've all got a little more time on our hands. Later in the season, we got to enjoy an evening with another local Athens artist, ANDY CHEREWICK. While often having simple subjects, Andy's richly textured paintings are full of life and vibrant color. We offer a few of his original paintings at STEEL + PLANK.
EARLY FALL 2018
St. Simon's photographer, BENJAMIN GALLAND, gathered with us to share his latest exhibit of ariel images using drone photography. This limited run of photos using archival ink and paper are simple, contemporary, and at times architectonic.
We had a wonderful evening of book signing and photo shopping while eating Georgia shrimp and drinking Georgia beer. Doesn't get much more southern than that!
When we began this journey and opened our doors at the Leather's Building in Athens, it didn't immediately occur to us that we'd created STEEL + PLANK not just for our handcrafted furniture, but as a space for artists to exhibit and sell their creations too. We had a blast meeting so many artists and makers in 2018 and already have a great lineup ready for 2019.
