Dog Days of Summer

Macon Arts invited me and five other local and regional artists to present some new artwork for their August show "Dog Days of Summer".  Never could summer weather be more appropriate than this year!  Wow, it's been HOT here.  I will be entering eight new works, which I will wait to blog until after the opening reception August 5th 5-8 PM. AC Pup, mascot for the Macon-Bibb County Animal Shelter, will be making a personal appearance.  I do hope you will join us that evening.  I'm really excited to see what the other artists have done for man's best friend!

Scott Burdick's "Banishment of Beauty"

I AM IN LOVE  .... and I don't think his wife minds!
Where have I been that I have not seen or been directed to this fabulous artist and his fight for truth in art?!
Perhaps it's because I am one of those of the shrinking middle class that has had to scratch tooth and nail just to make it from one day to the next in bewilderment of what is considered valuable in our modern society.  In my search for meaning and direction in my own artistic journey, I gratefully (through the blessings of the internet) have found a champion who can put into words what so many artists know and feel.
I beg you to block out one hour of your precious time to view Scott's video and hear his talk concerning "The Banishment of Beauty".  It will reach into the very core of you!
