Eight Years & $50,000!

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMugWith our recent sales/donations over New Year’s Eve, ARTvision has officially eclipsed the $50,000 mark in cumulative earnings—nearly $46,000 of which has gone directly to Atlanta’s own Positive Impact.

Over eight years
we’ve raised a total of $50,110. And we’re very close to breaking the $10,000 mark this year (we’re currently at $9,135) for “The Promise of Peace,” so discounted pieces will be available and you can help us jump over that last hurdle!

Watch this space next week for discounted pieces and other posts. Meantime, thank you for making this event so successful year over year.

To see the entire breakdown, go to our
Archive page.

ARTvision Artists in the News

“Grace” by Ginny Sykes

A number of our past, present and future artists have been working hard and either have pieces on display or will soon hold forthcoming events. If you’re in the area, make sure to check them out:

  • Ginny Sykes. Some of Ginny’s best work to date is “Grace,” which is mixed-media on linen. The triptych is both deeply complex and immensely freeing to viewers. (click to see more) She also has a large, permanent group of public works on display, including collaborations with schools and other civic organizations. (more)

  • Julia Murney. Julia’s schedule has been jam-packed in 2012. She just wrapped two solo shows at 54 Below in New York City, and now she’s in the new show “Falling,” about the life of an autistic child and the family members around him. Julia will once again be displaying her photography for ARTvision-7. (more)

Stay tuned for more, and make sure to visit some of those links to see the beautiful work.

Sponsor & Gallery Call for 2012

After the announcement of season seven for ARTvision Atlanta, "Uncharted: Travel to Enchanted Lands", fund-raising for Positive Impact officially starts after the Labor Day weekend. And we’re in need of re-signing existing sponsors, finding new companies and people, and finding a suitable gallery to house our even in early December.

In other words,
we want you!

ARTvision presents a unique opportunity for an Atlanta-area gallery to give back to the community and allow some great works to be shown by national and international artists. From Zurich to California and New York to Denmark, we display works from all over the world that fit the year's theme. We want these pieces to shine in the best light possible. (
