Artists D During the late 1990s, the phone often rang in the studio where three local artists shared space. "People frequently called to ask if we knew various artists and where to find them," says Pat Dicas, one of those artists. Most of the time, Dicas and her co-workers were able to help make the connections between other artists and community members who wanted to purchase their works. They realized that because the art shows in the area were only annual events, "it would be helpful for both the artists and the public to have a place where works by fine local artists could be found year round," Dicas says. After pooling financial and creative resources with six other "adventurous and like-minded artists," Dicas and her partners opened Artists Incorporated in a renovated, landmark red barn in Vestavia Hills' Rocky Ridge area in November 1999.

"It is a warmly welcoming and easy-to-be-in place to enjoy art, whether just to look and fill one's soul or purchase at reasonable prices," Dicas says. 68 v e s tav i a h i l l s l i v i n g 2 0 1 4
