Situated just south of downtown Alpharetta on Highway 9, Matilda’s Cottage is a happy jumble of color and “rural chic” charm. The gallery was originally established in the late 1990’s by MJ and Mark Potter as a collaborative retail space of art, antiques, and funky junk shared by local entrepeneurs who rented rooms in the house. Over time it has become more of a pure art gallery, though hardly a traditional one. The converted first floor of the cottage houses a joyous cacophony of impressive creativity, with paintings, iron sculptures, hammered metal installations and other pieces spilling merrily from one room to the next.
