Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting - 11/23 - 11/30/14
The Art of Diplomacy: Winston Churchill and the Pursuit of Painting will display more than 30 paintings by Winston Churchill, many of which have never before been publicly exhibited, and examine the notion that painting may have helped save Western civilization. Although a hobby, Winston Churchill wrote of the effect that it had on him personally and professionally. At the beginning in 1915, painting literally pulled Churchill out of his darkest political days and set him on his journey toward his finest hour. It was painting, he said, that helped him cope with the stress and strain of his political life, and allowed him to be productive as he developed his thinking about the rising danger of Hitler and Germany. In addition, Churchill found that the skills he learned from painting made his leadership more effective, and he used his painter's eye to achieve his political and diplomatic goals. Admission cost is $10 - $12. Call for hours open. Phone: 404-881-0900 - Address: Millennium Gate Museum, 395 17th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30363
Georgia Art Show
The Epic of Flight: A Folk Tale - 11/25-11/29/14
Evan Jones, a native of Cashiers, North Carolina, was inspired by a book series called 'The Epic of Flight' which chronicles the history of human aviation. According to his artists' statement for this exhibit, he was interested in making associations between birds and airplanes. Growing up, he has always been fascinated with vintage warplanes and by bird watching his mother's bird feeder, waiting to see what would visit. By focusing on these emotional connections, Jones added another inspiration in Appalachian Folk music to the mix. According to Jones, Appalachian Folk music can transform a very simple subject into an emotional experience. He decided that he would use his impressions of Appalachian Folk music and approach these paintings as if he were writing a song. By focusing on his original inspirations of vintage warplanes and watching his mother's birdfeeder, he incorporated those emotional connections into the process of making the paintings. Handicapped Accessible event. Show at 10am-4pm.
