Member Spotlight

Another example of the diversity of talent that highlights the Trust membership is board advisor Margie Spalding. An artist of considerable skill, Mrs. Spalding has been featured on Georgia Public Broadcasting’s Art Snapshots series. All of us at the Trust are grateful that she has generously offered one of her pieces for auction at the Trust’s Preservation Bash.

Margie spent years working in historic preservation in her beloved Athens before turning to art later in life. She is a prolific painter working primarily “en plein air” in oils with landscapes and in still life subject matter.

Margie and the Spalding family will be honored at the upcoming Preservation Bash for their collective work on behalf of historic places in Georgia. Tickets are still available, and it will be a unique opportunity to take home a piece of art by a true Georgia original, Margie Spalding.
