“I work using oil colors, finding their texture and blend-ability deeply satisfying. By working in abstract forms I can tell the story of tenderness in nature, sometimes also exploring the contrast of its severity. Finessing the line between tension and beauty is my objective. I observe, and then paint, both patterns and randomness I see in nature with energetic strokes. I choose my colors from those that represent the archetypal feminine character, and use them to conjure the same visceral reaction to nature that I experience”. – Kerry Steele

GREGG IRBY GALLERY
Gregg Irby Gallery in Atlanta is the contemporary fine art destination for discovering up & coming, regionally, and nationally acclaimed painters. Located on Atlanta’s Westside, Gregg Irby Gallery is not your typical art gallery. With 30 artists represented, more than 300 paintings and works on paper are hanging in the airy 3,400 square foot space with industrial high ceilings, vintage French lights and doors, and epoxy floors. Our team welcomes visitors as guests, rather than clients, encouraging them to casually explore at their own pace. The gallery’s passion and motivation is to launch truly talented and hardworking artists and to present established artists as they should be experienced.
In the 20 years of curating the works of artists, Gregg Irby Gallery has proven to be the source for discovering paintings and works on paper that will resonate for years to come.
