(ATLANTA - 27 Nov. 2012) There’s nobody better positioned than our resident Broadway Diva Julia Murney to give us a flavor of New York City life. Such is the case with her three pieces this year - capturing Manhattan in unusual states of being, all to raise funds for Positive Impact. (more) Here’s a round-up of her offerings:
“Rainy Day NYC” (Photography to gallery-framed metal plate). A rain soaked city through a pane-glass window. This will be Julia’s first mixed-media piece, and will be auctioned on eBay.
There’s a possibility of a fourth entry from Julia, too, so watch the website for updates. Julia’s pieces will be staggered throughout the month of December. Visit Julia’s website for more on what she’s up to. (more)

This piece was framed by previous ARTvision Artist JD Isaacs at Rose Squared Gallery & Framing in Decatur, an ARTvision sponsor. (more)
