Press Release updated: Jun 25, 2019 09:00 EDT

ATLANTA, June 25, 2019 – The Distillery of Modern Art, a craft distillery combining the world of spirits with the world of contemporary art, announces today its selection of seven local artists to commission and exhibit their work both within the distillery and on the inner label of each bottle; the seventh of which will remain anonymous. The art shared on each bottle and the personalities captured by the artists and their work will make each spirit approachable, unique and refined in a whole new way.

“The Distillery of Modern Art label itself was meticulously designed to be intriguing and provocative, encouraging you to study and appreciate it – then discover each artist’s unique sentiment inside the label as an added bonus,” notes Seth Watson, owner of Distillery of Modern Art. “Each spirit exhibits its own artwork created in the individual artist’s style, designed to match the spirit of our vodka, gin, a variety of American whiskeys and other distinctive liquors.”

Artists include Bea Craig, whose passion lies in abstract composition; Jeremiah Jossim, an oil painter who speaks to the psychology of home; Caomin Xie, whose works are currently being exhibited at the High Museum of Art; Jeromy Ross, a multi-media artist; Josh Jalbert, a professor of photography; and Juliana Lupacchino, who currently works on large-scale paintings and murals. Staying true to supporting local artists and their community, each artist is affiliated with the Savannah College of Art and Design.

“Our goal is to become a pillar in the Chamblee community; it only makes sense for us to tap into local talent and dig in deep to create roots here,” adds Seth.

The distillery will introduce each artist, their story and inspiration on its blog throughout the summer. For more information on each artist and the latest news and updates, visit distilleryofmodernart.com/blog.
