Art Classes in Artist Studios
Marcus will offer a painting class in his studio in Savannah in the fall of 2018.
Marcus was commissioned for two pieces of art for Perry Lane Hotel, a collage on the first floor of the South Tower and a large print in one of the public restrooms. Adelaide loves this large piece as it depicts a boy playing the trumpet near the water and reminds her of times with her brother and childhood memories when they went crabbing and fishing on the dock at the family’s summer home on Tybee Island

Art Lecture Series
Greg will offer artist talks at Perry Lane Hotel in the fall of 2018.
Greg created a painting in the South Tower second floor elevator lobby. The painting was inspired by his son, but Adelaide purchased the piece because it reminded her of a former love, an aspiring novelist, from her New York days.
Greg graduated from the Art Institute of Boston, received a BA from Northeastern University, and an MFA in Painting from the Savannah College of Art & Design. He taught in Florida and Missouri for fifteen years before moving back to Savannah in 2005, where he is currently Professor of Painting at the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Eltringham is a painting professor, writer, musician, and practicing artist. He travels extensively during the year, conducting research for his studio and teaching practice, and touring in support of his sound-based collaborative project The Tenderloin Trio. His paintings have been exhibited in numerous solo, two-person and group exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe.
