Dear Artist,    

 

I hope this email reaches you doing well and enjoying summer. Thank you for your past contributions to Fresh A.I.R. Gallery’s Art of Recovery. Your support has contributed to making this gallery and event possible and we are incredibly grateful for that.

 

The Art of Recovery benefits the Fresh A.I.R. Gallery (Artists in Recovery), a one-of-a-kind project that provides a venue for public display of work by artists who experience mental health and/or substance abuse issues.  Fresh A.I.R. Gallery is a non-profit art gallery and project of Southeast Healthcare. The exhibitions educate the community and work to break down the stigma of mental illness and substance abuse by bringing focus to the artistic vision. Since opening in 2004, the gallery has displayed the work of over 200 artists in 54 exhibitions and sold nearly 200 pieces for more than $50,000. Artists receive 100% of the sale of their work. The gallery does not charge any fees and helps artists by catering an opening reception, promoting exhibitions, artists talks, future opportunities, and more.

 

We invite you to pARTicipate! Your donation of an original work of art for the 2014 Art of Recovery is an essential component in helping Fresh A.I.R. Gallery sustain its programs and meet its mission. Please help support this important conduit for artists and cultural exchange.

TEAR DOWN

All exhibits must remain open until 9:00 p.m.

Upcoming Juried Art Show for the Carnegie Gallery in August.


"The Origins of Abstraction"

The basis of abstract is the elements of design; color, line, shape, texture, form, and space. But, how are those elements transformed into abstract? From life and from nature. From culture and situations. From your emotions, as a poetic visual expression. There is always a source and a meaning, even if it is to see how the paint hits the canvas, such as with formalism.

Abstract Art Artists who enter this show will enter abstract pieces that have a definitive source of abstraction. If work is chosen, the artist will be asked to submit a short statement about the work and what they abstracted it from.

Jurors: Elsie Sanchez and Barb Vogel.
For more information and to enter the show, visit www.4bstr4ct4rt.com
Show Dates: August 7 - September 19, 2014
Call For Entries Due: Monday, June 2, 2014

2014 GVAL PROGRAM and EVENT SCHEDULE

The GVAL Board is pleased to announce the 2014 schedule with some an array of events for our member artists.  FOUR EXHIBITIONS this year - one juried and three all member exhibitions.  The Board has been working to create new opportunities for member artists this year and help to promote their art and their art careers.  One of our goals is to help make German Village one of Columbus' artist communities.


We will attempt to secure a space during the "Art Crawl" event in German Village which a long standing art event in Columbus.  Our hope is to have a space where we can exhibit art by our members for sale and we encourage our members to secure additional space for just their own space.


We are pleased to host a new exhibition/fundraiser for GVAL.  "Mouth Watering Art" will be a month long exhibition at the German Village Meeting Haus with a fundraiser as one element of the exhibition.  We hope to have a ticketed event with food inspired by the art work selected by the jurors.  The Board thinks this event has the potential of being a premier art event in Columbus.  We are partnering with the German Village Society and Wexner Center for the Arts which will open two new audiences to the work of our member artists.


We will again have two "All Member Feedback" programs and two "Networking Socials."  We hope to host these programs and socials in the art studios of our members.  It will be fun and interesting to see where some of members work.


We wrap up the year with two exhibitions in both November and December for all our members.  Members will be able to hang in both locations by only entering once.


We are definitely stretching ourselves to grow as an organization through new and exciting events that will increase the audience for our member artists.  help us by renewing your membership at only $20 again this year.  The Board is offering more opportunities this year for our members at no additional cost.  We spend approximately 97% of all membership dues on promoting the art and careers of our members.  The 3% administration costs is one of the lowest in the city, so know that your membership dues are truly be used for our members' careers as artists.


So renew your membership today and volunteer for our events.


Thank you and we really look forward to our 2014 program,

GVAL Board of Directors
