(b. 1989) Gastonia, NC
Alex Waggoner is a painter living in Atlanta, Georgia. Waggoner attended Savannah College of Art and Design and received her B.F.A in Painting in 2012. She bases her paintings on the traditional Southern urban landscapes and architecture that surround her. Alex typically employs a dreamy color palette developed during her eight years living in Charleston, South Carolina. By exploring architectural individuality around her, she encourages thoughtful dialogue concerning the architectural, historical significance, forgotten spaces, and the in-between. Since her move to Atlanta, Georgia, in 2019, she has been studying the rich history of Atlanta and the integral role of architecture in telling the city’s story. Alex has been an artist-in-residence at Artspace in Raleigh, North Carolina, and the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, South Carolina. She was included in New American Paintings No. 118. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions around the country, and her paintings appear in several public and private collections.
