Maurice, Birmingham, Ala.: There's no other market like [Atlanta] in the South. It's so diverse; people in Atlanta just love art. Any show in Georgia is a good show. You can go to Climax, Ga., and you'll sell some art. I think people in Georgia have been exposed to more than the normal bullshit of the South. In Alabama, we thrive on that same bull. Whereas in this place, they've moved far and gone on and did what they need do to make life better for everybody -- and that flows over to the art.
Jerry, Austin, Texas: Atlanta reminds me a lot of Austin. The hills, the trees and, of course, the people -- they're hipsters. A lot of times, when we go to free shows, we get a lot of people who aren't used to buying art and the prices freak them out. I don't see that here. I don't hear, "Golly, $30 for a nightlight!" Here it's, "Wow, that's reasonable. I'll take two."
