Portrait Society of Atlanta

September 28 – December 15, 2013

The Portrait Society of Atlanta is a non-profit organization of portrait artists whose main purpose is to educate the public to a greater awareness of the portrait as an historically valid and valuable art form. At the same time, we enrich our members by offering a variety of educational services, including our quarterly newsletter, special programs, exhibitions, critique sessions and workshops.

About the Juror: Jamie Lee McMahan became a full-time portrait painter after a two-year trip around the world during which the great museums of the world opened the window of inspiration for the artist. Although he admired various art styles and periods, he was most often drawn to the great portraits, to the masterpieces of Sargent, Chase, Raeburn, Velasquez and others. He has painted U.S. senators, governors, mayors, judges, university presidents, pets and a wide range of subjects in private collections. Among the many portraits by McMahan is Alex Haley, author of Roots.
