Exhibiting Artist of the Month: Mackenzie Myrick

This Fall, we are honored to exhibit the whimsical yet sophisticated art pieces from artist Mackenzie Myrick’s latest collection at Corso Atlanta. Mackenzie will be one of the first artists to premiere her designs throughout Galerie’s newest premier community.

Hailing from Harris County, GA, Mackenzie’s family is full of artists. Creativity is in her genes. Her grandfather was an architect and her parents are also artists.

After attending numerous art classes at the University of Georgia, Mackenzie realized her preferred medium to work with is pen & ink. She loves how when she draws with pen & ink, her audience sees the details, textures, and composition of the drawing rather than bright colors.

“The pen & ink lends itself to a more mythical aspect of the work.”

Initially, many of her drawings were based on the literature she reads. She says she has always been interested in folklore, fairytales, and nature. Each of Mackenzie’s designs is attached to a story.

“Sometimes the story follows the drawing, and sometimes the drawing follows the story.”

Mackenzie’s whimsical pieces evoke a different response from every person. Many patrons say they can spend hours looking at the intricate details of her pieces.

We look forward to doing the same as we feature her work at Corso Atlanta. You can find more of Mackenzie’s pieces at MackenzieMyrick.com.
