Strolling through the quaint streets with boutique shops, bistro eateries, and intimate art galleries, one easily forgets that Roswell Georgia is sized as the seventh largest city in Georgia.  Roswell’s center is a day trip connoisseur’s best dream; park your car and walk around, enjoying great food, art, and the intimate atmosphere of a few streets packed full of things to do.

As far as art scenes go Roswell delivers the best of art worlds, both small and large. Right outside of Atlanta Georgia, Roswell’s galleries carry local, regional, and national artists. The genres of art range the full gambit from traditional pieces to abstract, and everything in between.  2D works hang on all gallery walls, while in some galleries you will find local pottery, sculpture, and glass.  

Monthly gallery openings line up the First Friday Art Walk.  Hopping from gallery to gallery by foot or with a free shuttle bus, meeting artists, and viewing artworks make for a great excursion.  Adding intimacy to your visit, gallery owners are always there to answer questions and have conversations about art.  

Overall Roswell is one of our favorite towns to enjoy art.  The multitude of galleries, mixed with great restaurants and historic sites make Roswell a perfect day trip destination.  In the following pages we have featured some of the great galleries in Roswell.

2. Ford Smith Fine Art, gallery/artist.
980A Canton St, Roswell, GA

For more than a dozen years, world-class and critically-acclaimed landscape artist, Ford Smith, continues to be both an innovator and institution for the Atlanta art scene.  Represented by fine art galleries from New York to Beijing, this artist-owned namesake gallery in Ford’s hometown of Roswell, Georgia features new original paintings directly from his studio, alongside premier hand-painted editions.  

Ford Smith is widely recognized for reinventing the modern landscape.  His sense of nature is not a Romantic’s wild and angry universe.  To the contrary, his paintings reflect a palpable optimism and vibrant confidence.  The easy precision, subtlety and repose of his paintings are likely derived from an Asian aesthetic learned from an elderly Japanese master in Ford’s early years while his military family was stationed overseas.

Fantastical trees, light and fractured reflections are classic Ford Smith, however, his talent and imagination often take him in new directions with subject matter, technique and palette.  In his own Roswell gallery you’ll find them all.  From trademark mosaic landscapes to seascapes, Bloomscapes, Human Nature, Splash, Monochromes, and introducing his new and transformative Iridescent Series--paintings that visually transform with varying viewing angles. 

Ford Smith Fine Art visitors receive a personal, in-depth experience of Ford’s artistic genius and feel the untethered nature of the art that comes with having this dedicated exhibit.
