Tori Price

Tori Price is a colorful painter and creative guide from Atlanta. Inspired by nature, animals, women, energy, and mindfulness, she fills her paintings with vibrant energy and focuses on radiating positivity through her work. Her goal is to inspire and empower the viewer to see the love and natural beauty in ourselves, in others, and in our world as a whole.

Ever since I was a little girl, I have made spirals in my artwork. I love the way spirals feel coming out of my mind and onto my creations. The boundless, circular turns make creating spirals a meditative experience. I admire the expansive nature of this pattern, as a tiny spiral can grow infinitely. But even more than I love creating spirals, I am endlessly fascinated with how they show up in nature both on Earth and in the greater universe. Why do spirals show up in plants, animals, humans, weather patterns, and even in outer space? In this series, I aim to capture the magic and mystery that the spiral pattern holds in our world and beyond. To me, spirals symbolize the interconnectedness of all things. The pattern is infused into parts of our lives, affecting us as little as a snail in the forest and as much as a life-threatening hurricane. No matter the size of the spiral and how we interact with them, they are a part of us. Just look at your fingerprints!"

Most of my artwork is created to allow others to see the world through my eyes, noticing the natural magic and beauty of our world that surrounds us each day. This Spiral series is a more developed way of explaining how I view the world and what life means to me. Each painting in this collection contains a spiral; my hope is that these spiral paintings expand your mind and breathe new life into your day.

Highlights from the Past:

The Cartersville Public Library has been very fortunate to host so many fabulous local and Georgia artists since 2005. Bartow native, Walt Floyd, was the first artist to exhibit in the Gallery - just in time for the grand opening of our new facility.
