Elm Street's Annual Art On The Green Goes In-Person, Digital

WOODSTOCK, GA — Elm Street Cultural Arts Village's yearly outdoor art festival Art on the Green returns from 1-6 p.m. on Sunday on the Elm Street Event Green with an added digital option for artists and guests. The seventh annual open air art market will feature local artists from around north Georgia to display their art which includes paintings, mixed media, photography, hand-crafted jewelry, one-of-a-kind gifts, and more.

"Art on the Green is a wonderful crafty event where you can explore the creativity in your community and support local artists," Elm Street's Education Director Siobhan Brumbelow said. Brumbelow has been coordinating the event the past few years."There's a variety of artistic mediums and handmade pieces to enjoy. Purchasing from your local artists not only supports the arts, but makes for a perfect holiday gift."

Elm Street is adapting to COVID-19 concerns by offering a special digital market to feature artists and encourage online sales.

"The digital medium is not going away anytime soon, so it makes perfect sense to have an online platform to continue to serve our community through the arts," Elm Street's Marketing Manager Justin Spainhour-Roth said. "This is a great way to connect to our artists who may not feel comfortable attending an in-person art show just yet as well as guests who feel the same but still want to support local art and artisans."

The digital market will have exclusive items for purchase and will be made available online from the start of Art on the Green at 1 p.m. on Sunday through 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 10.

Art on the Green is appropriate for all ages to attend, where every attendee will get the chance to explore art found in their own backyard. Elm Street Cultural Arts Village is closely monitoring COVID-19 outbreaks as well as spikes and is working diligently to ensure proper social distancing guidelines are met for the health, safety, and comfort of guests, volunteers, and the artists. Elm Street's full guidelines can be found online.

History of Art Timeline

The historical past of art is usually told as a chronology of masterpieces created during each civilization. It can thus be framed as a narrative of high culture, epitomized by the Wonders of the World. On any other hand, vernacular art expressions can even be integrated into art historic narratives, called folk arts or craft. The more intently that an art historian engages with these latter sorts of low culture, the much more likely it is that they will determine their work as analyzing visual culture or cloth culture, or as contributing to fields associated with art historical past, akin to anthropology or archaeology. In the latter cases, art gadgets may be called archeological artifacts. Surviving art from this era comprises small carvings in stone or bone and cave painting. The first traces of human-made gadgets appeared in southern Africa, the Western Mediterranean, Central and Eastern Europe Adriatic Sea, Siberia Baikal Lake, India, and Australia.

How to Show Art Work when the Gallery Says No Thanks

There are places in the town where you live where you can show your artwork when the big gallery you solicited said, "No, thanks." Other artists may need to find venues other than galleries to show their artworks as well. Visual artists living in art-rich communities where there is a lot of local competition will need to get creative about display opportunities. Or on the other hand, in towns without large art venues, it is important for artists to find smaller and less obvious places to show your art. How to Show Art Work When The Gallery Says No Thanks 1. Show Where You Go The most successful approach to finding a place in your town to display your artwork is to solicit a place that you go to frequently. Make a list of all the places you go to each day, each week, and each month.

His distinctive personal style is now so iconic that he has become a Halloween costume—one instantly recognizable by mustache al one . The artist's long career was full of unexpected twists, and even if you've seen his work, you probably don't know how far-reaching his influence remains today, more than a century after he was born on May 11, 1904. 1.
