Three years in the making, the "Master of Light" documentary about George Morton, will make it's world premier at the highly competitive SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas, March 11-20, 2022. The film highlights George's unique journey as he ascends his childhood world of unforgiving poverty, followed by 10 years in federal prison, where he taught himself to paint. Since his release 8 years ago, George became the first African American to graduate from the prestigious Florence Academy of Art. He has travelled the world, and in recent years, most extensively in Egypt, where he is discovering the genesis of the design principles that in later centuries informed the Renaissance in Europe. His speed dial is full of fascinating people and artists from all over the world.
Atelier South is pleased to announce that Founder and Director, George Anthony Morton, has been honored with an Artist-in-Residence program through Art Farm at Serenbe, a beautiful community connected to nature on the edge of Atlanta. He will be teaching classes, as well as hosting some illuminating events.
