There are too many artist and too many styles to pick favorites. It depends on my mood for the day. However, the varied talents of Marc Chagall, Frida Kahlo, John Singer Sargent, William Blake, and Odilon Redon seem to fit today's mood nicely.
Did an on-line search
I'm a few hours from Atlanta, but when possible, I'd be delighted to lend a hand.
Hi: My name, appropriately enough, is Art (short for Arthur). I've been living in a cultural vacuum too long and wish to break out and get involved in something that will stimulate me. Art fits that bill perfectly.
There were many nice pieces in the show. In fact there were more nice things than bad. Prices on some of the glass work was amazingly reasonable (cheap). There were a few things though, that shouldn't have been hanging at all. A big horse comes to mind. However, the biggest problem, in my opinion, was the absence of "GROUP". I can (and do) go to shows all the time. I went to this one however, because it was supposed to be a group event. I'm not sure what I thought that meant, but there was nothing "group" about it. Perhaps in future shows, our elusive group could meet prior to the event and set some kind of group agenda. The group might even get together after the show to discuss things and to get better acquainted. I left this show after 50 minutes without ever feeling like I was part of a group, and went to the "Marietta Diner". My companion and I discussed what we had seen. It could have been a much better discussion though, if more voices with more opinions had been there with us.
