Susan Bridges of Whitespace Gallery (whitespace814.com) is more than a gallerist; she’s one of the pillars of the Inman Park community—although art is “what makes me tick,” she says. “It’s my desire and hope that everyone can be excited about art and the creative process.” The gallery, open since 2006, has a mission to “encourage open, artistic expression and promote original, unconventional projects,” which shows in the artists Bridges chooses to represent.
