Artist: Stephanie Raborn

Stephanie Raborn is visual artist out of Atlanta, Georgia. A Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree-holder with a minor in Drawing, Painting and Printmaking, the training she received in Psychology serves to inform her art practice and guides the analytical approach in which she creates process-oriented drawings. Her work centers on the concept of time, and drawings are reflections on specific points in time and how we choose to navigate them. Each blur, smudge, and mark that she creates within a piece represents a passage of time, an instance that she has either tried to wipe out, forget, or retro-actively alter, as we as humans constantly engage our memories and experiences.

Elton H.

Elton Howze is an alumnus of the W. W. Woolfolk Club, where he was a member for 12 years.  Today, he is the Director of Information Systems for the Fox Theater.  In his words, the BGCMA was a major influence in his life because he always had a safe haven, was given opportunities that he would never have been afforded otherwise, and was taught to be a leader and to value mentorship and teamwork.  For him, the best part of BGCMA was the staff – it’s not a job to them, it’s a family.  “So many people saw potential in me that I didn’t see in myself.  They all put in time and sacrifice to help me be successful.”
