Art From the Heart - You must watch for Memorial Day.

I just realized that my husband posted this video on my blog. We were going to put a link to this video which I have posted before but the earlier link doesn't work any more. I wanted to keep the memory of our fallen soldiers alive on this Memorial Day. Since it's already up, Let me explain what it is. GPB did a feature story on Art From the Heart, a project of the Atlanta Fine Arts league, which I co founded. Art From the Heart artists have put in hundreds of hours to paint the portraits of Georgia's fallen and donate them to their surviving family members. It is not a political statement on our part. As a matter of fact our artists have many different ideas about the war. No matter how you feel about the war we hope you will always honor and respect the soldiers and their families who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. This video follows 3 of the families and the artists they worked with to create a memory that will last a lifetime. The artists featured in this special are Lisa Gleim, Geri Zaki and myself. We honored the families with a reception at the National Museum of Patriotism in September 2007. This aired in January 2008. There are 2 parts so be sure to watch both parts - it's very touching.

Still Life Wins Third Place

Italian Still Life with Fruit won Third Place in the Olde Town Gallery Juried Exhibition in Conyers, GA. My family went to the reception. My sons Zach, 10 & Stokes, 8 made the most of being dragged to another art event. I was very impressed with the gallery and the studio space there.
