Liberated Tech has an art project coming up on Saturday, Sept 14th, 2013 at Freeside. They are looking for artists to submit concepts for four mixed media pieces (acrylic and computer parts on canvas) that is representative of Liberated Tech. They are supplying all of the materials and can work with artists to get what is needed. They are open to working with two or more local artists.

The pieces will be jointly created by the artist(s) and Liberated Tech’s volunteers on Sept 14th, with the artist having complete control over direction of the work. The pieces will be offered as gifts for donations of $2500 to $5000, and we will offer a 15% commission to the artist if donors select a piece.

ChopArt, a non profit organization whose mission is to empower youth in homeless situations to expressthemselves creatively and to develop sustainable values through art exploration, is pleased to announce “SpringBoard”, an art show on July 11th giving local artists the opportunity to showcase their art work and empower our youth. SpringBoard is one of the opening events of the 2013 Heritage Cultural Arts Festival and is one of a two-part series to bridge community gaps and uplift the homeless youth community.

Participating artists play a major role in the positive development of our youth. Following the SpringBoard art show, selected artists will be paired with a youth for a short term (July 17th-31st) mentorship to help him/her work past the blank canvas and reach their finale product.

If you are passionate about youth and passionate about art, please take out this time to support homeless youth!

[ART DISPLAY/ENGAGEMENT]

WonderRoot Index—Weekly Artists’ Booth @ the East Atlanta Village Farmers Market

This market season, WonderRoot will present a new artist or group of artists to the EAV Farmer’s Market Community each week. The Market is open every Thursday night from 4-8 p.m. beginning on April 19th.

We encourage artists, in taking over the Index for a Thursday evening, to create a unique art experience for passersby: Are they buying made things, making things with you, letting you decorate them, playing a game with you? And so on. Simple is perfect. Grand is perfect. Whatever suits the art or art-purpose you will be sharing.

Please contact maggie@wonderroot.org to find out more and let us know you’re interested. We’ll reserve you a Thursday, and help you make it a successful exhibition of your work in a unique context.

We are also seeking artists to create a few installations (temporary and semi-permanent) at the market site. Come spend time at the market and then pitch a site-specific work to info@farmeav.com and maggie@wonderroot.org.

[MUSIC PERFORMANCE]

Music at the Market—WonderRoot’s Music Series @ the East Atlanta Village Farmers Market

Every week starting this Spring, there will be music at the market! WonderRoot is helping to find and gather bands and solo acts, new and old favorites, all genres, all ages, from around Atlanta and beyond.

Acoustic music is preferred to be kind to the market’s neighbors, but power and tents can be made available if your sound is softer but still needs electricity. Bands will be paid $50 ($30 cash, $20 to spend at the market). Interested musicians should send samples of their work to maggie@wonderroot.org and info@farmeav.com with the subject line “Music at the Market”. Please indicate dates you are available to perform (Thursdays, 4-8 p.m.) asap, as we are planning a month or so in advance.
