A 19th Century home will become Alpharetta's latest art gallery next month, with the works of 20th Century masters being highlighted.
The Sedgwick Gallery will be a fine art gallery in historic downtown Alpharetta, celebrating its grand opening Nov. 15-17 at 61 Roswell Street.
Located in one of the city’s oldest homes built in 1856,
The Skelton-Teasly House is one of the city's oldest homes. Owner Scott Sedgwick and general manager Ryan Sedgwick believe it provides a perfect backdrop to showcase exquisite works of art. Their goal at the Sedgwick Gallery is to offer customers the highest quality art available, while adding to the cultural experience of downtown Alpharetta.
“We are excited to announce the opening of our new art gallery in Alpharetta. We think it signifies the perfect time and place for fine art,” said gallery manager Ryan Sedgwick.
Sedgwick Gallery will highlight the works of 20th century Masters including Peter Max, whose pop art has inspired Americans for decades; early French modernist Marc Chagall, whose work can be found on the ceiling of the Paris Opera House; American expressionist painter LeRoy Neiman, renowned for his brilliantly colored paintings and inspired screen prints of musicians and athletes; and Salvador Dalí, the world famous Spanish surrealist.
The gallery also includes distinctly American works by Thomas Kinkade; Tarkay, the Austrian-born Israeli painter and watercolorist; and fellow Israeli master printer Amram Ebgi. The gallery features custom commissioned and framed oil paintings perfect for decorating any home as well as rotating features with established local artists.
“I have conducted hundreds of charitable art auctions nationally, and believe it is an opportune time to bring that kind of excitement to my hometown, ” said gallery owner Scott Sedgwick.
