Cinque, you call this a more subtle conversation on race??!?!? Havent seen this exhibition, but already tired of the subject. Before I call it Hackneyed and Boring, I promise to go see it, but until then just know that if there is one person who's oh-so-tired of the race discussion in art, there's probably more than a few. Hope I'm totally wrong about this exhibition.
I thought this exhibition was great. Larger, sharper, much more epic than you'd think based on images online.
These painting are to be seen in person photos just doesn't do it justice
Shana Robbins is my new idol. She is an incredibly talented artist and a brilliant woman. Everyone should check out her stuff at the Atlanta Contemporary!
Overall, it's a good article with some excellent points. But two items are overstated. First, while it's true there are some collectors who think you can only by worthwhile art in New York, they are in the minority. Most of us know better.
Second, the notion that only African-American collectors buy significantly from local galleries and local artists strikes me as greatly exaggerated. So take that with a grain of salt.
great work, i was "gayle" and enjoyed posing
No comments? About the best that can be said about some of the Atlanta collectors leaves us with the fact that some of us artists will never be invited to dinner or bought by them because of the color of our skin-no matter how talented we are-and there are no comments? Gee...and to think that I thought the fact that there are no real champions (among our Atlanta institutions and/or critics) of local talent was our biggest problem!
"We've come a long way, baby!"
If you're ready for a slice of history and a good serving of true emotion, please don't miss the Show ! Thank you Chad, Thank you Opal Gallery, and thank you Mr Catledge.
Felicia Feaster is just another dumb pig.
Your "article" about these pictures is no more than a false, summary judgement on a people you don't know and a way of life you don't have the slightest clue about.
You aren't fit to write the captions under the pictures in a Sears catalog.
I have a correction to make, and a public apology to Cinque for assuming HE was a girl! I come from Canada and had a female friend there named Cinque, so as a newbie to Atlanta, I naturally assumed the name was female! Thanks to a friend who set me straight...I won't forget! At any rate, thanks for the article!
This is one grateful artist for getting such an incredible review from Cinque! Even better, her observations and comments were dead-on...she "got" it! (Yep- I'm not a painter...I'll use any technique though to get my point across!) Thanks so much. I haven't been in Atlanta long, so getting such a great response to my exhibition is really gratifying!
I love thomas and michael, their an inspiration,their warm, human real creativity is becoming more and more crucial in this world of Statement after Statement...its refreshing to just see simplicity and tenderness which I think people are forgetting all to easily. xx
Thanks for this relevant profile, great reporting on a great soul.
In addition to this exhibit, a partner nonprofit organization, the Cultural Landscape Foundation, produced and posted substantial oral history videos of Ed Daugherty, his own self. Check
The exhibit remains on view alongside the Cherokee Garden Library in the Kenan Research Center at the Atlanta History Center. Additionally, the Cultural Landscape Foundation literature is there as well.
The Anderson Scotts and other anti-consciousness people will not stop the awakening of the children of the Most High! Tama-Re was a version of a piece of OUR story in Africa, not a part of HIS-story. As usual,ignorant and hater caucasians, as well as their uncle tom negro counterparts,are expected to cover the truth about Moors and proto-native americans; the devil does what the devils does.
This totally sounds like you, I'm so glad I found you. Please call, same number.
Arthouse allows you to participate in art events as a community of artists solely based from social networking online. It's up to each individual artist to take the opportunity to share their art and in doing so gaining some exposure. I don't understand the negative comments above - art is what YOU make it.
Just to clarify: my comment "you've failed to address anything specific" was addressed to the comment that came before me, not to Cinque's article.
It still amazes me. Somehow you've failed to address anything specific or even germane to the discussion at hand.
What do "commodities" have to do with the guys at Art House?
I left a comment on Wednesday, but I think the CL server lost it. I think this article is very well-timed, since Art House seems like a genuine start at growing a genuine arts community. I emphasize start, because yes, I want things to go much, much farther.
