Atlanta-based artist Charlie Watts seeks to create images not of this world, to use photography as a stepping-stone to the unknown realm just past the peripheral edge of consciousness. She creates images to bring imaginationinto fruition and provide a visual escape from the mundane to the fantastical. Watts finished an MFA program inphotography with the San Francisco Art Institute after graduating with highest honors and a B.A. in art history andvisual arts at Emory University.. Her photographs are heavily performance-based and have been exhibited at MOCAGA, de Young Museum Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, SomARTS, Root Division, WhiteSpace,the Diego Rivera Gallery, and “Boom City” with the Dashboard CO-OP. In 2017, she was a fellow with thDorset, VT with The Marble House Project.

Carley Rickles is an Atlanta-based artist and designer working at a range of scales. Her works include handheld ceramics and printed publications, gallery-size installations, and designed public spaces. As a constant between mediums, her visuals include illustrative narratives that are as much personal as they are collective; contemplating common, but unspoken internal conflicts.
Her most recent body of work, inspired by the theme, “fired”, takes a second look at past intimate works and moments of despair. In a time of transition in Rickles’ home, studio, and pace,“fired” is used as an verb. “Fired” challenges Rickles’ work and her past; shifting into a process that celebrates change, adulthood, and situational dexterity.
