APRIL



The Love Stream

Saturday, April 11th 2020

6:30 PM EST

Five extremely talented musicians (Charlie Starr, Coy Bowles, Blair Crimmins, Joe McGuinness & Levi Lowery) have agreed to donate their gifts to create a high-spirited virtual gathering space where we can cultivate love for our fellow man. We would like to thank the organizations we have partnered with: ASID, SPAN Ga & Modern Luxury Interiors, for their help in maximizing our reach into the community. On this page there are three designated locations (CashApp, PayPal & Venmo) where you can give, if you are able, to our cause. The money you donate will be used to fund the continued outreach of local restaurants to their communities and it will be used to purchase gift cards from local restaurants to support their business. Those gift cards will then be given to individuals (identified by professionals in the social services field) who are struggling to feed their families.

The restaurants that have been identified to benefit from this cause (initially) include: Prime 120, Athens Pizza, Buteco, Foundation Social Eatery, Fortify Pi & Petit Chou. We understand that this is a tiny portion of the establishments that are in need of support. If we are able to raise enough money, we will expand our reach to more local businesses.

Tune in Saturday April 11th for a live stream featuring music by: Charlie Starr, Coy Bowles, Blair Crimmins, Joe McGuinness and Levy Lowrey to benefit local restaurants and support people in need.

OPENING EXHIBIT: Four Figurative Painters: Expression through Paint and Inspiration from the Everyday World

Friday, April 24

Thomas Deans Fine Art, 690 Miami Circle NE #905, Atlanta GA 30324
6:00-8:00

Who: Benjamin Frederick, Ana Guzman, Evan Jones, & Christina Renfer Vogel

“My work comes from looking around me,” says painter Benjamin Frederick. This straightforward statement aptly describes the painting of his three colleagues featured in the upcoming exhibition Four Figurative Painters at Thomas Deans Fine Art in Atlanta. Perception is the unifying factor for Fredericks, Ana Guzman, Evan Jones and Christina Renfer Vogel. Expression through paint and inspiration from the everyday world, it’s just that simple—and that complex. For Benjamin Frederick, the time spent with his family provides rich inspiration. Frederick synthesizes everyday experiences into something universally recognized and understood. “Speed” is of the essence to Ana Guzman. She works quickly to capture the sensations, energy and rhythms of life in rich, thick pigment, a technique perfectly suited to capturing the face of Atlanta in paint. Evan Jones draws heavily on Americana and the South, putting into his paintings diverse elements to create what he likens to a “stew” of imagery. Christina Renfer Vogel sees herself as an observer, painting moments of human interaction that are personal, anonymous, and private, balancing description, interpretation, and invention. In other paintings, flowers and houseplants become surrogates for figures, speaking to femininity, beauty, and home. In an art world accustomed to grand gestures, all four of these artists use their considerable abilities as painters to remind us of the small daily delights that we too often overlook.

The exhibition opens with a reception for the artists on Friday 24 April. For more information, contact the gallery 404 814-1811 or thomas@thomasdeansfineart.com
