Russell Clayton, a retired Cobb County educator and art collector, will be sharing the life and work of Athos Menaboni.
Italian-born artist Athos Menaboni arrived in Georgia in the late 1920s and remained active until his death at the age of ninety-four. His early career focused primarily on painting murals and creating other decorative features for clients in Atlanta and elsewhere in the state. He then turned to painting birds from life, usually in pairs and in their natural habitats. Today Menaboni is best known for his numerous paintings of more than 150 different species of birds.
In my research I found this really interesting interview about our speaker for October.
