James Yarbrough

Yarbrough: 53.9 Years and Still Unpredictable 

Jan 12- March 24, 2013

James (Jim) Yarbrough is a unique original. Jim is both a precise professional and a masterful draftsman. He is inventive and constantly testing his chosen materials to achieve his desired effect. He simply goes about bringing to canvas a world he envisions and explores. He has painted the streets of Venice, dancers and musicians, fish, imaginings, history and myth, fantasy and diabolic conflict. All are executed with the skill and artistry of a very talented professional.

Yarbrough has been creating artwork for over five decades.  Originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee, Yarbrough attended art schools in Atlanta and Paris from 1956 to 1963.  He received a grant from the French government in 1959 to study at the Écôle de Louvre.  Yarbrough resides in Atlanta and is a prolific artist, creating his artwork full time.
