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. These first traces are generall

‘A boiling point’: UC Berkeley art community calls for institutional change

Amid ongoing national unrest, college communities continue to call for change by challenging institutional practices, racism and social justice issues. Over the past few months, the UC Berkeley art community has questioned the responses and actions of campus administration. In a letter sent to the faculty and administrators of UC Berkeley's Department of Art Practice in June, alumni and students demanded acknowledgment of the Black Lives Matter movement and a commitment to remove white supremacy from art institutions, among other demands. "There is a heavy hypocrisy in the silence and inaction of institutions that pride themselves on values of inclusivity and diversity, claim to prioritize marginalized voices, and borrow from radical decolonial practices of BIPOC," the letter states. During the same month, senior faculty from the department responded with a letter stating their support for the Black Lives Matter movement and their commitment to reparative work wit

Bob Gibson was not just best pitcher of modern era, but during time of strife, mastered the art of fear

For a lot of successful athletes, winning in competition is about winning their own internal battles between anger and fear. One can be generated by the other. One can also be erased by the other. Those who effectively use anger, even if they must fabricate it, can overcome their fear and simultaneously instill it within the opponent. This statement covers a lot of competitors and a lot of time, so I don't issue it carelessly. But in all my years, I've never seen an athlete channel fear in the opposition more effectively than Bob Gibson. He was the young Mike Tyson of baseball, way before Iron Mike. And unlike him, Gibson didn't flame out in his prime. He was not only the best in the business during a 5-year span in the mid-'60s (1964-68), he won his second Cy Young in 1970 at age 31 and threw a no-hitter the next year against the best hitting lineup – and it turned out, best team – in baseball that season, the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates. I saw an old fan on
