We whipped Stone Four Studios into great shape for ARTvision-7. HUGE, mad props to our hanging-party volunteers: Delia Cochran, Randy Chumbley, Kimber Herndon, Vicki Duke Proano, Jim Hayes and Michael Baker, among others. Our electricians, Ron Nelson and Mike Davis, put in major work to make the event happen, too. Have a look below at our photoshow as we got the studio ready for the big two-day event:

In a bold return to ARTvision, Delia Cochran offers “Alchemy” - a moody, magical and emotional work of photography shot in Dahlonega, Ga. “Being able to donate a photograph to Positive Impact knowing that all the funds raised make a difference in the life of someone is a fulfilling way to make a small impact,” she says. This piece was framed by previous ARTvision Artist JD Isaacs at Rose Squared Gallery & Framing in Decatur, an ARTvision sponsor. (more)
More than 15 artists have submitted pieces so far. Great thanks to all of you for donating your time and artistry for the 100% benefit of Positive Impact. Set to Sara Bareilles’ “Uncharted” through Animoto, here’s our promo video:

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!

“This year you’ll see original works that challenge the consensus idea that travel is only a change of physical location,” says Will Pollock, ARTvision’s founding director and curator. “I am deeply proud of all that our artists have done, and will continue to do, when they accept this year’s theme as an artistic challenge.” (read the full press release)
