All About That Bass

Kate Abney | September 5, 2014 | Articles

In just three short years since graduating from The University of Georgia, Milton native Britt Bass Turner has stormed the Atlanta art scene with her playful, colorful paintings. With business booming, she recently traded in her teeny Goat Farm Arts Center studio for a 1,200-square-foot Buckhead atelier. The East Andrews Drive shop is awash floor-to-ceiling in white—a scheme Bass’s interior-designer mom, Amy Ferrer of Emiko Ferrer Designs, devised. Shelves display a surplus of affordable art prints, cute cards, phone cases, fab pillows and more featuring her chic designs. Bear in mind: The Gregg Irby Fine Art-repped artist can sell originals only through her website, but you can still swing by in person to peruse the online inventory or talk commissions. “I love the way artwork unifies rooms, starts conversations and makes everyday life more aesthetically pleasing,” she says. “I want that to be accessible to everyone, which is why I offer $25 giclee prints and original art starting under $100.”

This fall, she’ll introduce a new series of pattern-based paintings and have a possible pop-up at Calypso St. Barth, followed by a joint exhibit with fashion designer Abbey Glass. But we have an inkling that’s just the beginning for the beautiful Britt Bass. @_brittbass
