Important to note: we have nearly $18,000 worth of art to sell tomorrow night, so let’s get to it!
I’ll be offering four pieces for our event. They are:
- Madaket Sun. Growing up on Nantucket gave me unusual access to one of the most beautiful places on earth. This image was shot along an inlet near Madaket Beach, right at sunset. Custom framing by JD Isaacs at Rose Squared Gallery & Framing.
- Hendrix Bloom. An accidental homage to the late, great Jimi Hendrix, this image was taken at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens during a recent visit with my parents. The Hendrix song, “Purple Haze” was apparently inspired by a dream Hendrix had where he was walking under the sea, and was engulfed by a purple haze and got lost. I got lost in this bloom when I took it, and hopefully you will, too.
- Nomad. I got a call from my neighbor Jim Stapleton that a hawk had landed in the backyard and that I should grab my camera and shoot it. So, I did. The guy didn’t stay long and looked as though he had lots of other places to visit. This was the shot I got off in time before he scooted away.
- Wake Up/Brilliance. Named for the Melissa Etheridge song, “I Need to Wake Up,” this simple sunrise image was shot in Chautauqua, N.Y., and reminded me of the importance of seeing each day as new, fresh and brilliant. “I am not an island/I am not alone/I am my intentions/trapped here in this flesh and bone” is the lyric that has stuck with me all this time, and this scene reminded me of that. This song was the single motivator for starting ARTvision back in 2006.
See you tomorrow!
Please join us tomorrow, 1 December 2011, at The Phillip Rush Center for ARTvision Atlanta’s first standalone event. As always, 100% of proceeds benefit Positive Impact. (RSVP on Facebook or Evite). Admission is free for all.
- Will Pollock’s “Madaket Sun” is being readied by JD Isaacs at Rose Squared; and Julia Murney’s third ARTvision entry, “I’d Rather Be Sailing” is being prepped for eBay. Both of them just got back from MyPhotoPipe.com.
- Todd Wiggins’ blog has some terrific travel photographs that are a must-see. Check them out here at SecretTrustFund.com. His “Presence” is now being offered at $400.
- Gordon Stuedler’s “Palm Lagoon” is finished, as is Vibecke Dahle’s “Memories” - both of which are coming tomorrow for the site, and available on Thursday night.
More soon. If you like these or any others, make sure to reserve them ahead of our event at The Phillip Rush Center.
Two days to go until our first standalone event. Please tell your friends and RSVP today!
Slowly but surely, we added in-person viewing to the ARTvision equation, and you responded. Our preview viewing events in both 2009 and 2010 yielded thousands of donations before the official day of the event on New Year’s Eve.
This year, we are trying something entirely new, also based on fan feedback. We’ve moved ARTvision to a standalone event - just to focus on the in-person viewing and fund-raising that will take away the crunch of the end of the year and allow folks to get that tax deduction before the end of the year.
Keep those comments and feedback coming. Without it, we won’t be able to improve!

- Julia Murney is appearing in “Queen of the Mist,” an off-broadway musical by five-time Tony nominee Michael John LaChiusa. The story is based on the true story of Annie Edson Taylor who, in 1901, set out to be the first woman to go over Niagra Falls in a barrel she designed. (more) (18 Oct. - 20 Nov. 2011)
- New to ARTvision this year, Ginny Sykes has two events this month in the suburban Chicago area. “Call and Response: From Artemisia to Frida” is now open at Koehnline Museum of Art in Des Plaines, Ill. Ginny is also showing “Works on Paper” at Fuga Salon in Chicago, 20 Oct. - 6 Dec.
Watch for more details soon about Julia and Ginny’s pieces this year, and please help us spread the word about these exciting events. -WP
We are having technical problems with our Facebook Group - the site shows the wrong name due to a glitch in the way the site “calculates” where the event is located.
We’re working with FB to correct the error on their end. Meantime, you’ll see that our FB Group reads as “Positive Impact” and not ARTvision Atlanta. Apologies for any confusion - update to follow shortly. - WP
“restorearttive: creative therapy”
This 2011 theme celebrates art’s wide-reaching therapeutic properties, drawn from all artistic platforms. All artists will be tasked with donating and creating works that support the idea that art can heal, instruct and expand one’s thinking and feeling. Works will include photography, painting, mixed-media, jewelry, pottery, metal sculpture and much more.
What’s new this year? Here are some of the first details:
- New date/location. Our event, usually held at the home of Will Pollock on New Year’s Eve, will now be held on 1 December 2011, at The Phillip Rush Center on Dekalb Ave. Details about time to follow, but please mark your calendar for that date, which commemorates World AIDS Day.
- Expanded collector donations. We are happy to announce a call to collectors who would like to donate a photography, painting or other piece of art for the purpose of raising funds for PI. For more on this great opportunity, please contact Will Pollock or Michael Baker.
- Program advertising and artist exposure. In conjunction with this event, Will Pollock and Stone Four Media will produce a program with artist bios, donated piece information and advertisements from local businesses. Please stay tuned for more on this great opportunity.
- Suggestion box. If you have an idea or would like to suggest an artist for this event, please contact us for more.
