Cyanotype Crowdfunding Project for the Atlanta Beltline from Margaret Hiden & Rose M. Barron

August 12th, 2014

Botanical Dwellings will display silkscreened imagery of native and rare flora on two canopy-like installations as part of Art on the Atlanta Beltline. The silkscreened fabric panels will be created from original cyanotype photographs and will be cut into linear strips and fixed to a grid on a steel armature. Each blue and white panel will flow with the wind and mimic the movement of tall grasses that surround our installation site on the Beltline.

The installation will serve as place for visitors to retreat and enjoy the organic forms. Botanical Dwellings seeks to educate visitors of Atlanta Beltline on the importance preservation and conservation by showcasing the area’s native and rare flora via the arts.

Art on the Atlanta Beltline has awarded us $2,500. We are asking for your help to fund the remaining $2,200 in order for us to complete this project. To learn more about Art on the Atlanta Beltline please visit http://art.beltline.org/

“Presentism” Film Festival at Whitespace on Friday night

August 12th, 2014
Pres RAW file[1]

“Presentism is a philosophy of time that states nothing in the past or future exists. The only reality is the present moment, which is redefined. A moment is no longer like the blade of a knife, gone the instant it is felt. Rather, it is an extended duration of conscious experience. Reality is also redefined. The world is no longer characterized as a set of historic and anticipated facts, as in “once and for all.” The presentist defines reality as a world that relies on constant survey. And when events happen in multiple places simultaneously, they are part of the same reality.” — From the curator, Ruth Dusseault.

Event Hours:
Friday, August 15th at 8:00 pm

Photographs from Joeff Davis (top image), John Glenn, Tim Redman (above), Renee Brock, David Tulis, Rachel Parrish, Ramon Taylor, Stephen Morton, Lesley Ann Price, Lindsey Lingenfelter & Chris Hunt exploring poverty in Georgia will be on display at Colony Square for the month of August. There will be an opening reception on Tuesday, August 5 at 5:00-7:30 p.m.

“Some 1.8 million Georgians currently live below the federal poverty level. Despite these large numbers, too often the plight of the most unfortunate among us is hidden or simply ignored.

That’s why St. Vincent de Paul Georgia has launched “Profiles in Poverty,” a photography exhibit that chronicles the plight of Georgia’s most vulnerable populations. The Kickstarter-funded exhibit features photos from the state’s most talented photojournalists, including John Glenn, David Tulis, Joeff Davis, Stephen Morton, Chris Hunt, Tim Redman and more.

The exhibit depicts the issues affecting the poor, including homelessness, hunger, healthcare accessibility, homebound seniors and unemployment. Despite the seriousness of the subject matter, the exhibit captures the indomitable spirit of many in tough situations, their moments of hope in the midst of despair.

The gallery will be on display at Colony Square for the month of August. We invite you to the opening reception event on Tuesday, August 5 at 5:00-7:30 p.m.”
