This July Amanda has been invited to speak on a panel of artists on the "Indispensable Role of Art in Interiors." Obviously, this is an honor on several levels, but it is also expected to be entertaining, as Robert Leleux is the moderator, and Amanda and Robert have lots of experience chatting it up together!
Home is where the art is. Take it from these inspiring and influential artists and designers—the marriage of art and interiors is as intertwined as ever, with client collections and statement pieces serving as focal points in acclaimed interior design projects. How do you know if the investment is worth it? How do you commission original works? How do you establish a piece's fair value? In this spirited conversation moderated by Robert Leleux, panelists William McLure, Susan Hable Smith, and Amanda Stone Talley will share their experiences creating compelling interiors with unmistakable art.
The artist's panel will take place during the July Market at Atlanta's AmericaMart. Never attended? Here's why you should!

OUR OWN EXPERTS:
Betsey Mosby is one our favorite young southern design talents. We were lucky enough to meet her in person at a trunk show in Jackson, Mississippi last summer and now follow her on all social media platforms because her serene palette and superior styling make us happy! We asked her what makes AmericasMart special to her, and you can read her answer below!
"We love America's Mart for the wide variety of vendors that show there which always makes the trip worthwhile! We love visiting with old friends and vendors, but always find new lines to love while we are there as well! My recent favorite addition to the mart is the antiques portion--I found original art and lots of special pieces last winter and can't wait to shop the section this July!"

In addition to being a friend to the gallery, a successful author, and someone who knows how to have a great time everywhere he goes, Robert Leleux is one of the most respected voices in interiors, leaving his indelible imprint on both Domino and Lonny magazines. He was delighted to share with us his reasons to include AmericasMart on your summer calendar as well.
"I love the AmericasMart market, first and foremost, because it's a crash course in everything that's going on in design. I see all the new trends, styles, and products all under one roof! So, it's an education. But it's also a GREAT time! I see all my friends, and invariably meet designers whose work I've admired from afar! The market's a wonderful mix of business and pleasure!"
- Robert Leleux
