Clearly Kosciusko Member Spotlight – ATELIER
Friday, May 12, 2023
We appreciate and support all of our members. The Clearly Kosciusko Member Spotlight is a way for our members to highlight their organization or business and for us to show how much we appreciate their participation.
The Clearly Kosciusko member we’re shining the spotlight on this month is ATELIER, a new contemporary art gallery that recently opened in downtown Warsaw.
ATELIER is owned and operated by Sea Grandon and is located at 104 East Center Street in Warsaw. Sea’s vision for the gallery is for it to be a place for art collectors and creatives to gather, explore ideas and share perspectives.
An “atelier” is an artist’s studio or workshop and the new gallery is designed to create an outlet in the area for creativity and innovation.
“I want the ATELIER space to serve as a creative thinktank for our community and actively promote its visual arts.”– Sea Grandon, Owner – ATELIER
Connecting With Our Local Community
In August, ATELIER will be featuring two artists whose work explores issues of water pollution and conservation. They are excited to partner with The Lilly Center For Lakes & Streams with this exhibit to showcase our wealth of lakes and streams in Kosciusko County and to highlight the important research and education efforts that The Lilly Center does to protect this natural resource.
Additionally, each year the gallery will present one show that explores the intersection of art and technology in order to promote the medical device industry and other high-technology businesses in the Kosciusko County Area.
Why Clearly Kosciusko?
“Clearly Kosciusko beautifully promotes all that is unique and exciting in Kosciusko County. It is an extremely professional and chic marketing campaign that perfectly aligns with both my business goals and my aesthetic preferences. It is an honor to join forces with likeminded professionals to champion our community.”– Sea Grandon, Owner – ATELIER
What’s Next For ATELIER?
ATELIER will present the first solo exhibition of young painter Jon MacGregor from May 12 to July 1, 2023. ATELIER’s hours are from 11am – 4pm Tuesday – Thursday and 11am – 8pm Friday and Saturday.
“The Subtle Thief of Youth” is a 17-piece collection of MacGregor’s quietly complex figurative paintings. The show’s title derives from John Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost, which recounts Adam and Eve’s banishment from the biblical Garden of Eden.
“Jon’s paintings are exquisitely beautiful and atmospheric renderings of everyday life. I find Jon’s narrative ability and painterly virtuosity to be exceptional, and those talents, combined with his discipline as an artist and his commitment to his education, make it a true honor to present the first solo exhibition of his work.”– Sea Grandon, Owner – ATELIER
