ART FOR GOOD: SWANSTON & FOSTER

OPENING RECEPTION: MAY 25, 2018

fosterswanston_fbcover.jpg

ABOUT THE ARTISTS: Join us to celebrate the artwork and creative process of Tom Swanston & Gail Foster. Tom and Gail are longtime friends of the Serenbe community and the Nygren family, helping to establish Serenbe's artist in residence program (AIR Serenbe) and develop the Art Farm as we know it today. Their creative contributions are celebrated in the Serenbe community.

In 2013, Gail had an accident that left her with a spinal cord injury. With 4 weeks at Northside Hospital and 6 weeks in the Shepherd Center and intense rehabilitation ever since, she has continued to paint and inspire everyone she has met along the way, with husband and fellow artist Tom providing support since the beginning. Serenbe and the Art Farm are excited to partner with Help Hope Live to exhibit artworks in Grange Hall by both Tom and Gail, all of which will be up for auction on GiveSmart to support the necessary home accessibility renovations to their house. These improvements provide Gail with a safe space for continual recovery after her early 2018 surgery, and beyond for years to come.

Proceeds from the Art For Good event will be donated to the nonprofit Help Hope Live in honor of Gail Foster via the Southeast Catastrophic Injury Fund. Funds raised will be used to offset uncovered medical and expenses related to her home accessibility renovation only. More information is available at: https://helphopelive.org/campaign/6326/

Please note:
Donations made in honor of a specific individual, or in response to campaign solicitations, are restricted by region only and do not obligate Help Hope Live to allocate funds towards a specific individual, as the IRS would deem such donations to be private gifts, which are not tax deductible. Clients receive support according to their medical and financial need. Help Hope Live is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Information: 800.642.8399.


BILLY NEWMAN

Opening reception: Feb. 3, 2018

Grange Hall exhibition on view: Feb. 3, 2018 - March 8, 2018.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:   Billy Newman is a Peachtree City based photographer with a career in commercial and fine art photography spanning two decades. Newman explores plants, flowers, ice, light, motion… almost anything in which he can discover new images. He says, "I’ve photographed just about everything from sunsets, to sporting events and landscapes. I no longer care to document those images, no matter how spectacular. I want to see the unseen. We are constantly exploring realms of the unknown: space, science, philosophy, etc… I am no different than the rest of humanity. I simply use the tool I know best, the camera."

Serenbe Porcelain Hanging Globe
20.00 45.00

Art Farm commissioned Serenbe Resident Rachel Garceau to design & build this porcelain globe in 2016. Rachel utilizes slip-cast porcelain forms to create site-specific installations and used this process to create this lovely micro-collectible. 

After receiving her B.A. in Fine Arts from Franklin Pierce College (NH), Rachel K. Garceau has had studio assistantships, workshops, and residencies at various studios, schools, and museums including Haystack Mountain School of Crafts (ME) and Vendsyssel Kuntsmuseum (DK). 

In 2017 she was one of the five Georgia artists chosen by Sarah Schleuning, Curator of Decorative Arts and Design, for the 2017 National Museum of Women in the Arts Women to Watch: Heavy Metal show. 

An excerpt from Rachel's Artist Statement:

"From the finest teacup to the rest stop toilet, we encounter porcelain in our daily lives. I rely on the viewer’s notion of the material to come into play when approaching my work—it is fragile and can be broken, yet it is strong and durable—rugged enough to support the weight of a human. Encountering these objects unexpectedly magnifies this experience—porcelain umbrellas floating overhead, or a row of porcelain objects creating a pathway in the forest, or a sidewalk of porcelain bricks in an otherwise empty courtyard."
