The artist has been immersed in this project for 4 years. With one exception, all of the musicians featured did personal shoots with the artist either at a venue, at the artist’s home, or at the musician’s home or studio. Some portraits on view will include Big Boi of Outkast, Emily Saliers of Indigo Girls, Mike Mills of R.E.M, Vanessa Briscoe Hay of Pylon, Patterson Hood of Drive-By Truckers and many others.
“I am moved by the vibrant art and music scene in Georgia which has inspired me to create this exhibition of Legendary Georgia Musicians.” – Jackie Dorsey
