inings Gallery is pleased to feature the incredible talent of Michael Flohr and Thomas Arvid during the lovely fall season. Abstract impressionist, Michael Flohr is known for his use of vibrant pigment and multi-dimensional brushstrokes along with intricate palette knife work. Often capturing urban landscapes in his work, Flohr finds beauty in iconic landmarks such as the Eiffel Tour, the Fox Theater and canals of Venice, while he is just as at home on a street corner in New Orleans, or strolling down Canton Street in Roswell, Georgia. Many of his paintings depict a woman with a red dress or red umbrella – a nod to his loving wife, Melissa. Flohr will join the Vinings Gallery family during the weekend of November 2-4 when he will be painting live during show hours.

Then, in December, Vinings Gallery will once again welcome hometown favorite Thomas Arvid back to the gallery his annual holiday show.

Blue Ridge Farm, 16” x 20”, oil on linen

I began formal training in the Aerospace industry as a technical illustrator and worked for companies from California to Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. After graduating from Auburn University, I continued to paint while developing representation at galleries.

In 1994 my three brothers and I were juried into Art Expo New York where we met David Leadman and Nancy Marshall of Walls Fine Art Gallery; and with their confidence in my work, they have represented me for over twenty years. This led to acceptance at other galleries and invitations to events such as the Thunderbird Foundation at the Maynard Dixon Ranch, La Quinta Art Festival, Paint Wilmington Invitational, Greenbrier Fine Art week, and teaching workshops across the country.” Perry is represented at the following fine art galleries: Beverly McNeal Gallery, Birmingham, Alabama, Germanton Gallery, Germanton, North Carolina, Stonehenge Gallery, Montgomery, Alabama, Chirpwood Gallery, Opelika, Alabama, and Walls Fine Art at the Greenbrier, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.

The Man, 16” x 12”, oil on linen

“His paintings are the reason we got to know Perry Austin. Consistently solid composition, well seen values and color, all leading to a subtle sense of place that radiates the simple joy of being out in the landscape – something too few of us take time to do. Perry painted for us when we were in North Carolina, and now that we’re in West Virginia, he sees paintings he hasn’t painted, yet, everywhere he turns. That’s a really good thing for us because it means we get to see him more often. Perry teaches workshops here – workshops that teach valuable ins and outs of painting while instilling a heart-felt wonder for the world around us. I suspect the classes are just an excuse, though, to get back here to work on painting some of the last unspoiled family farms, streams, and woodlands for which Perry holds such profound respect. Any painting may show us a location, but a great painting allows us to be there. That’s what Perry Austin does. In his paint, we hear the cattle, feel the wind, and see the trout nab the mayfly – or maybe snap the line. David and I have had the honor of working with Perry for years and we look forward to many more. “-Nancy Marshall, Walls Fine Art at the Greenbriar, White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia

illiam Merritt Chase once advised art students, “Do not try to paint the grandiose thing. Paint the commonplace so that it will be distinguished. “

At a recent event Dot added, “Art is a personal vision and an attempt to make the most faithful statement about people, time and places in our society. Perhaps the most profound statement an artist can make is in to take a deep look into the place where she lives. An artist’s work truly shows our spirit, who we are, and how we relate to the world. I hope the viewer feels my connection to the land, people and nature of the south.“ “My own voice is a reflection of my deep abiding love of the rural southern landscape; it’s a shared story about the lands a salute to where I was born and raised and scenes observed during my life. I hope it is something for the south to relate to, be proud of, and people from elsewhere can be happy to view.”

Free Range, 20” x 24”, oil

From a family of artists beginning with her father, she left a career of nursing and healthcare administration to pursue her art 15 years ago. Now her daughter, artist Susan Patton, has left her job as a physical therapist to teach art and paint portraits full time. A full time artist, she paints in plein air and in her 2200 square foot studio in Pontotoc, Mississippi. This year she was chosen for a solo show at the Kate Freeman Clark Museum. She has had numerous national awards with her southern landscapes and has been published in books and several art magazines. To view more of Dot’s works, visit www.dotcourson.com.

new addition to the flourishing New Orleans Arts District, M contemporary is located in one of the thirteen Julia Row Sisters, a block of townhouses built in 1833.

“After 25 years in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where I opened my first art gallery, I decided to return home to New Orleans and started M contemporary in 2012. Having grown up in the French Quarter in the 50’s-60’s with strong cultural ties-my father is Cosimo Matassa of the famed J&M Studio-the new vibrancy of New Orleans was irresistible. You will find a mix of rich color, vivid to subtle. Originality and technical excellence unite imagery ranging from figurative and landscape to abstract. This incarnation is somewhat different. The roster of M contemporary is a small group of regionally and nationally recognized artists, both emerging and established-artists whose work is united by technical excellence and a strong individual point of view and signature. James Strombotne,Tea Party, 36” x 40”, acrylic on canvas

I continue to represent two of my favorite artists, James Strombotne and George Alexander with whom I have an over twenty year relationship and Fredrick Guess, a New Orleans stable.” -Michael Matassa M Contemporary represents George Alexander, Andrew Blanchard, Fredrick Guess, Hilaro, Linda Leslie, Michael Mazdo, and James Strombotne. A very select collection of Tribal art which I assembled in Santa Fe is also offered. M contemporary reflects the rich gumbo of New Orleans. Visit in person or online at www.mcontemporary.com.

xford Treehouse Gallery is located in beautiful Lafayette County seven miles from the Oxford, Mississippi Square. Walter and Vivian Neill’s vision for the acreage they acquired began with building a blacksmith shop in 2000. Walter then built a painting studio/gallery nestled in the trees (some actually supporting the porches) in 2005 and the chicken palace in 2008 completed the evolution. The art gallery doubled as their home and studio until construction (by Walter and crew) was finished on their house on the same property in 2013. “We opened Oxford Treehouse Gallery to share this space with other artists and to provide the public with a fine art experience in an unconventional gallery setting. We strive to fill the gallery with art that we love and appreciate - that is both functional within the home and adds to the simple beauty of everyday life.” Visit the gallery in person or online at www.oxfordtreehousegallery.com.

n Alabama native, Melissa Mercer Brown enjoyed oil painting, drawing, watercolor, pottery, ceramics, crocheting and knitting as early hobbies. Creativity was just something she took for granted but didn’t learn to appreciate or embrace until much later in life. Now she lives on Scenic 30A along the emerald coast of south Walton County Florida where the breathtaking landscape and coastline provide a constant source of inspiration. Her style of painting is often using a lot of texture and translucent layering of washes to capture the changing sea and skies. A board member of the Walton County Cultural Arts Alliance, she believes there are unique talents and gifts in each of us so that we can give back, bless and enrich others. Her theory is grounded in the belief that nature is a reflection from heaven and it’s our job to treasure, appreciate and keep it beautiful. Melissa’s art can be found at The Henderson Beach Resort and Spa in Destin, Florida, the Foster Gallery in Miramar Beach, Florida and online at melissamercerbrown.com.

olli Youngbeck’s first memories as an artist came from her mother’s kitchen as she fervently defended the originality of her drawing to her next-door-neighbor. She was four years old and her neighbor insisted that she had traced the drawing. She heard this story so many times as she grew into her role and thus her calling. An Alabama artist, she is a graduate from Auburn University with a degree in Design but also attended the Universitat Salzburg in Austria and Heidelberg University in Germany for further art training.

Atlanta was Polli’s home for most of her adult life where she taught art lessons in her home, schools and park systems until she settled in to a new life in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida ten years ago. She believes that God has blessed her with rich experiences and has given her the foundation for so much of what she paints. She paints with a passion and fervency of loss and pain as well as love, happiness, kindness and sacrifice. She paints with the wisdom and knowing of age and hardship that she has learned from every stroke of her life. For more of her works visit online at www. 30aartiststudios.com.

A Boggy View By Gileah Taylor Come across and dance with me in the shade of the crooked tree! We will dance a-through the bog and in the rain, and misting fog. Away! Away! My leafy sweet! The roots of love beneath our feet! And gnarled around our wooden shoes-the vines, entwined, and shaped like toes. What leads me here? To shout, to shout... The greens! The blues! The secret’s out! Who leads me here? To sing, to sing… The gloried branches of the tree king. A woman smiles, is looking through. The forest glows with morning dew. It holds her here, it binds me, too - a ripe old splendor: a boggy view. To view more of Carol’s work visit www.carolanncain.com.

ART MERIPOL PHOTOGRAPHY B I R M I N G H A M, A L A B A M A

I was born into a big, footloose family in Long Beach California. We soon moved to Texas, and eight schools and 12 years later I was working as the head cook in a Chinese restaurant, and taking pictures while earning my journalism degree at the University of Arkansas. I worked for more than a decade as a newspaper photographer—a job that let me chase another passion, concert photography. In 1989 I joined the staff of Southern Living Magazine as a senior photographer for Travel. That was so much fun I stayed for almost 25 years, shooting hundreds of features, and logging more than four million frequent flyer miles. Now, as a freelance photographer, I still love creating storytelling images. My years of doing music, food, and travel photography have made me adept at putting people at ease and working in a relaxed, energetic style. Although I’m based in beautiful Birmingham, Alabama, I am always packed and ready for another photographic adventure. When I’m not on the road or on a shoot, you can find me walking our two dogs, cooking dinner or playing Disc Golf.”

T

he New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) presents Mildred Thompson: Against the Grain, on view starting October 19, 2018, marking the first solo museum presentation of the experimental wood works of the American artist Mildred Thompson (1936-2003) in more than thirty years.The exhibition featuresthree rare early Wood Picturesrecently acquired by NOMA for its permanent collection alongside a selection of Wood Picturesand related prints from the Mildred Thompson Estate and Galerie Lelong & Co, New York that reflect Thompson’s deep commitment to the language of abstraction. “Made during herself-imposed exile in Europe, Thompson’s Wood Picturesare only recently being rediscovered and presented in the United States,” said Susan Taylor, NOMA’s Montine McDaniel Freeman Director.“NOMA is delighted to feature works by Thompson acquired in 2016, reflecting the museum’s commitment to highlightingon under-recognized artistic voices from the American South.” An accomplished painter, sculptor, writer and musician, Thompson began creating her wood assemblages, which she called Wood Pictures, while living in Germany in the early 1960s. Thompson’s abstract work in wood went against the grain of the more representational and overtly political art of her time to offer more subtle reflections on history, memory and place. These sculptural assemblages—which represent a unique contribution to the art of this period—combine found and manipulated wood segments into sophisticated, expressive compositions that blend the traditional categories of painting, sculpture and collage. The exhibition is organized by the New Orleans Museum of Art through the generous support of Galerie Lelong & Co, New York and is co-curated by Katie Pfohl, NOMA’s Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Melissa Messina, Curator of the Mildred Thompson Estate. 70 Art Galleries&Artists of the South

rtStartArt is an online marketplace exclusively for enrolled university-level art school students to sell their work. They make it easier than ever to purchase original artwork from top student artists across the country. Every month students at participating universities submit artwork through ArtStartArt who works with curators to handpick the most exciting work from those submissions. They then bring those selections available for sale on ArtStartArt.com for a limited time. Every month there is a new collection and all artwork is only available for purchase for about 4-5 weeks. When Erik Culver graduated from art school, he realized he had created a huge amount of artwork. Most of it was under his bed or at his parent's house and he didn't know what to do with it. As the years passed, he noticed most of his friends didn't have any art on their walls and a lightbulb went off. “Many of us have an appreciation for handmade goods, and we want to know where our products are made. Yet when it comes to art, traditionally, it has often been cost prohibitive to buy an original piece and difficult to know where to start.� Erik knew that high quality of artwork was being created in universities all over the country but that much of it would likely never have the opportunity to be seen or sold, and he kept holding onto his belief that there had to be a solution. Years later, Erik met Alok Marwaha (a DJ turned business consultant), and ArtStartArt went from a vision to a reality. Both Erik and Alok are passionate about helping art students reach their potential market and believe in the transformative experience of living with great art.

he potters of Earthborn Studios are skilled artisans who enjoy a common ground with the chefs for whom they design. Both chef and potter take raw ingredients from the earth to be carefully subjected to the right time and temperature in the ovens, and then placed on the table to be enjoyed. Mixers, baker’s

racks, oven mitts, rolling pins, measuring cups, etc., are tools of the potter as well as the chef. As in the high culinary arts, the art of clay is expressive and exacting. They follow traditions and methodologies that have been passed down by potters for centuries. The creative processes they use require an artist’s eye, strong hands and continual diligence. Earthborn Studios is a small band of artists who are making a dream come true by hard work, creativity, and inspiration. Their products are handcrafted in the USA.
