at the Alliance Theatre
Dear Digital Arts Studio Friends,
Welcome to a new season of exhibits featuring regional artists exhibiting in the Galleria of the Woodruff Arts Center in conjunction with the Alliance Theatre Company.  Whether attending the play or exploring Midtown Atlanta please stop in to view some of the most creative artists in the south. 
Starting Thursday, September 26 through Sunday, September 30 on view will be the artwork of Tom Parker and Marsha Chandler. Click HERE for a schedule of times these artists will be exhibiting.
Marsha Chandler   

Marsha Chandler is a watercolorist who is realizing her childhood dream of being a professional artist. She creates expressive still lifes and vivid landscapes which express her love of details and objects or scenes that evoke a sense of history. She finds subjects for her still life paintings in common objects that surround her daily-even a trip to the farmer's market for fruits and vegetables inspires her to paint.

Since becoming a full-time artist, Marsha has studied extensively and taken workshops with regionally and nationally known artists. Her paintings have been accepted into regional and national juried exhibits and have garnered a number of awards. In addition, she has had several solo shows.

Marsha is a member of the Douglas County Art Guild and Southern Watercolor Society, an Advanced Merit Member of Atlanta Artists Center and a signature member of Georgia Watercolor Society and Watercolor Society of Alabama.


"Art is a thread that has run through my life since I was very young. Now, since becoming a full-time artist, I recognize that creating art is essential to me and is a vital part of who I am. Using vivid colors, texture and light, I paint vibrant, close-up views of everyday objects and things that suggest stories of the past-a copper teakettle, an elegant silver vase, a weathered wagon, a rusted tractor.


I paint in a representational style, but I like to complicate my paintings with the distortions of reflections, refractions in glass and silver, and shadows that move in and out. I try to evoke a feeling of intimacy in the viewer and draw him or her into the intricacies of the painting to see and experience a new perspective or thought about the subject."

tom parker  

Tom resides and paints in the Georgia mountains. He received his bachelor's degree in art from Florida State University, and studied with Robert Brackman, William Schultz, and Charles Reid. Tom has taught drawing and painting classes, and is a member of the Southeastern Pastel Society. His paintings have received numerous exhibition awards and are included in private and corporate collections in the US and abroad.

"I love pastels - the feel of the pastel in my hand, how it reacts to the paper's surface, the fact that it is pure, raw pigment. There is an amazing journey that occurs between the initial vision and the finished piece of art. I want the viewer to experience some of that journey. Strokes of color are placed next to each other creating an atmosphere of light and shadow inspired by the simplest of elements - a rock, a single fence, post, a cow."

Gallery in the Galleria
Gallery in the Galleria is a collaboration between the Alliance Theatre and Digital Arts Studio. We strive to provide our patronGnG logo s with a fun, cultural experience on and off stage. To that end, we created this partnership in 2009, and it has flourished. Digital Arts Studio (DAS) has earned a reputation in the artistic community nationwide as a premium, full-service, fine art giclée printmaker and custom picture framer. They carefully select each artist based on their style, quality of work, and relationship to the community of Atlanta. Each artist must be local. Most already have a national reputation. Most of the artists' work can be seen on DAS's sister site Fine Art Marketplace. The program benefits the artists by giving them a wide exposure to an audience that might never have seen their work otherwise


This program benefits our patrons by providing an enhanced pre- and post-show experience. Plus, the Alliance benefits by receiving 35% of all pretax sales that directly result from the Gallery in the Galleria exhibitions.

If you have any questions or comments about this program, please contact Kathryn.David@woodruffcenter.org. For more information about DAS, visit www.digitalartsstudio.net.

What I Learned in Paris
Pearl Cleage

Mini skirts and bell bottoms were on sale downtown for $8.87. Stevie Wonder was on the radio singing "Livin' for the City." And change was in the air from Buckhead to Butler Street. This sparkling new romantic comedy takes us back to 1973 and weaves a tale of passion and politics that could only happen in Atlanta. A world premiere by Pearl Cleage, best-selling novelist and author of the 2010 Alliance hit The Nacirema Society Requests...

Sometimes you have to leave what you know to find what you need.
