New Group, FightForTheFuture - Net Neutrality

New Group, FightForTheFuture - Net Neutrality

We Americans are fighting to keep the Internet as it is. We now have 4 or 5 million Americans who are almost daily calling the FCC, Chairman Tom Wheeler, and members of Congress and President Obama at Whitehouse.gov to protest the actions of Congress people who take graft money from the big telecom companies, and whether their constituents like it or not, vote to end the Internet as we know it. President Obama is now electing to work to overturn Citizens United in the Supreme Court, which is responsible for the take over of the American government by big corporate money. This sounds like a lot of hooey, and there are emails out there from the non democratic party which say exactly the opposite. Where artists are concerned, it's best to stay out of politics otherwise we will never get anything done. On the other hand, social commentary through art, political posters, and graphic statements by artists have often had an effect on educating those who disbelieve in such as I am saying. I...

Chick Days 2015

February 15th, 2015 - Sheridan, MT

Chick Days 2015

Anita Faye started a contest called: Chick Days 2015.

Chick Days Contest!

It's almost that time of year again, when poultry passions are stirred to bring new members into the flock. The fluffy wonders touch hearts and give non stop entertainment ... conjuring up such phrases as 'Chick Watching,' 'Chick Flicks,' 'Peep Show,' 'Don't Be a Chicken,' 'Eggstra Special,' and as we sometimes call it here.... 'Redneck TV.' By the way, the term 'Redneck' was born out of the characteristic sunburn on the back of a farmer's neck from hours of working in the fields.

You can enjoy the submisions for this fun contest. We all love Chickens!

By accident, Trouble has been entered into the contest and is taking the lead!

If you like her, place your vote. Voting lasts for another couple of days.

Enjoy!

Review Of Collages And Prints By Artist Ellen Moore Osborne

Review Of Collages And Prints By Artist Ellen Moore Osborne

"Collages Show Generations of Change"

By Lillia Hood

Reprinted with permission from The Opelika Auburn News (September 22, 1995)

Ellen Moore’s art shows the generations of change America has endured over the years.

The Keswick, Va. Artist’s work is hanging at the Opelika Arts Association. Mostly collages of torn pieces of black and white photographs, her art also consists of color prints and etchings.

"I want people to get their own stuff out of my art," she said. "A lot of it is about the things we think that we need." Moore took most of the pictures in her collages, but some were negatives from her mother and grandmother.

"They were pictures from the ‘40's, and I blew them up. They are always combined with photos I took," she said. "Combining the two sort of brings the history together. It’s like three generations of photos combined there." All the pictures on display are for sale. Prints sell for $300 or more and collages are between $800...

Review Of Ellen Moore Osborne Art Show

Moores Intaglios: Examining Spirituality, Emptiness, And The Built Environment

Art Review-- By Kathryn Willis

Reprinted with permission from The Free Lance-Star, Fredericksburg, VA (August 16, 1993)

Works of emotional depth and subtlety await the viewer of Ellen Moore's solo exhibit, now at the Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts.

The subject of Moore's intaglio etchings is the relationship of people to the places where they have lived, and to the buildings and machines that they have labored to construct.

Images of men and women are from snapshots taken in the 1940s. The people who face us in these works are couples who got married and stayed married. We see them, among other places, on the front porch in the pre- air-conditioned South, sharing the simple pleasures of company and conversation.

These people are the embodiment of the Protestant work ethic. They wordlessly witness to duty and perseverance. But in their faces, there is...

Awakening And Evolving

You might know this situation, long hours, stress, perfomance pressures, lack of sleep, bad health habits, too much wine and dine, etc...

A long career in the corporate world selling complex information technology solutions, business travel, long projects away from home made it that the artist was brought back to life allowing for more time with his son who was only five and suffered from the detachment each time his father had to leave. So in order to change this part and also after suffering some health implications due to living on-the-go, too much coffee, restaurant food and wine, little sleep and too much stress it was time to get healthy, to awake the artist again and share the passion of the outdoors and evolve in the art of photography.

Christophe De Greve was born in Brussels, Belgium and discovered photography from as early as walking-age. His passion for photography comes direct from the influence of his father, Jose De Greve who is a known Belgian...

Artist Thomas Zuber Joins The Ranks

Artist Thomas Zuber Joins The Ranks

A self-described creative, Thomas Zuber has been driven to "make stuff" from an early age. From winning an American Bicentennial locker-art competition in the first grade to exhibiting his latest feature-length film in local theaters, Zuber has indeed been creatively industrious. After receiving his BA in Fine Arts, with a concentration in sculpture, from Indiana University, South Bend, in 1991, Zuber embarked on exploring woodworking techniques, culminating in independent furniture and custom kitchen installations in Northern Indiana and Southwest Michigan. In 1995, he was offered a teaching position in Bloomington, MN. There, Zuber learned the art of teaching as he instructed students in Calligraphy, Drawing, Colored Pencils, Painting, and Art History. In 2002, he returned to the South Bend, IN area and taught at a private school. During this period he exhibited and sold numerous semi-abstract watercolor and acrylic paintings in the Northern Indiana area. It was at this point that...

My Opening Heart

Let's Play GOD IS LOVE

I never even considered opening my heart to myself until I stopped playing ersatz-god with my life. Programming by others marked my trail until I opened my eyes and recognized the human touch in my own destiny. How powerful are the gods who keep us alive from the womb until emancipation. For decades I had punished myself into a life of steady tears and fearful silences. grieving my lost family.
