Some moms bring an iPad or iPhone. Others cram books and magazines into tote bags. But to occupy herself as she waited during her daughter's piano lessons at Emmerson Farm, Lori Vrba brought along a camera. The setting was just so rich with potential.

In her artist's statement, Vrba writes: "This series speaks to the connection between an artist and a place of endless creative possibility." Titled Piano Farm, the complete body of work is available through Jennifer Schwartz Gallery at Atlanta's Brickworks.

Right now, Schwartz is also offering more budget-friendly editions of Vrba's work from the Southern Comfort series through The Ten, an online only gallery. The signed works spotlighted over at The Ten are available in relatively small editions of 25, in just one size and for one price, $250, with a new collection unveiled on the tenth of each month.

The Ten archives include Laura Griffin's poetic series, The Comfort of Strangers, which began in 1999 when she found herself in very challenging, unfamiliar territory.

As a fan of Jennifer Shaw's work, too (you may have read about the Southern fine art photographer's recently released book, Hurricane Story), I'm also linking to some of her Nature/Nurture pieces available through Schwartz's main gallery.
