I'm not entirely sure, but I think graphic artist may refer to somebody that creates the visual assets of the game, and the animator is the one who makes them move.

That's what I would assume too, at least for productions that are mostly non-frame by frame. Graphic artist may be divided into different cathegories like background artist etc.
A Flash animator animates in Adobe Flash while a Graphic Artist designs the graphics. Graphics could be something like the logo.
The animator may just animate but depending on the size of the team and their skills, they could do more like design the characters he'll be animating. But bigger the project gets could be broken down even further into Character Design, Background Artist, UI Designer, etc.
