Ana Guzman | Summer in Havana | 2021 | Oil and Mixed Media | 38 x 38

Join us as we celebrate Ana Guzman’s From Havana to Atlanta, an Artist’s Journey.

In conjunction with Atlanta Art Week and Hispanic Heritage Month, Thomas Deans Fine Art is mounting a special exhibition of new paintings by Cuban American painter Ana  Guzman exploring the cityscapes of her birthplace as well as those of her adopted home.  Fresh, colorful, vibrant, and often playful, Guzman’s paintings exude vital energy and  optimism. She approaches painting gesturally, working quickly, and using paint boldly and  expressively.

Ana Guzman will give a gallery talk about her work and her artistic journey at a reception on Sunday 2 October, from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. Ana will speak at 3:00 p.m. The gallery will offer Cuban-themed refreshments immediately before and after the talk.

About the Gallery

Inside the gallery
Thomas Deans Fine Art was established in 1983 and is located on Miami Circle, in the  heart of Atlanta's art and design district. The gallery specializes in contemporary  paintings, contemporary and historical works on paper, and selected contemporary  photography.

The gallery works regularly with museums, private and corporate  collectors, casual buyers, interior designers, and art consultants.

In addition to the work of living artists, the gallery has exhibited work  from the estates of significant 20th-century artists, including British  draughtsman Randolph Schwabe (1885-1948), Polish-born  modernist Marek Zulawski (1908-1985), and beloved Scottish painter  John Boyd (1940-2001). 

Other exhibitions have been devoted to the work of the great Sculptor-Printmaker Henry Moore (1898-1986), paintings by the brilliant but tragic British artist Cynthia Pell (1933-1977), etchings by Lucien Freud, Paula Rego, and Frank Auerbach, and drawings and watercolors by 19th-century masters George Richmond (1808-1896) and Alabama born Orientalist Frederick Arthur Bridgman (1847-1928).

About the Artist

Ana Guzman was born in Havana, Cuba and came to the United States at the age  of five. Speaking little English, she learned to keep a sketchbook close at hand to express  through drawing what she couldn’t express verbally. The practice of sketching has stayed  with her throughout her life. After graduating with honors from Philadelphia College of 

Art, she settled in Atlanta, putting her Spanish-English bilingualism to work assisting Cuban refugees. She met her future husband in Atlanta, and together they opened Coco  Loco, a restaurant that became a fixture in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood. Throughout, Guzman never abandoned her painting, devoting her energies to steadily  producing work. Today, she can count herself among Atlanta’s established and popular artists.
