afternoons spent curled up on the couch after one too many pieces of pie; thinking of the people, experiences and things we’ve been blessed with in the last year. As we press pause on the hustle and bustle of life putting together a monthly magazine, we’re able to look back on the past year and, most meaningfully, the stories from all of you that have made what we do possible. We also take this chance to think of those less fortunate and encourage you to take the opportunity this giving season to donate to local organizations or charities.

Maune Gallery Brings World-Class Art to Midtown MEET THE OWNERS AND ONE OF THE ARTISTS THEY’LL BE SHOWCASING THIS FALL

ARTICLE SUE BALDANI NEWLYWEDS HEIDI AND RAMSEY MAUNE HAVE TRAVELED THE WORLD ATTENDING ART SHOWS AND ART FAIRS AND VISITING MUSEUMS. Today, they have combined their desire to be entrepreneurs with their love of contemporary and modern art to open a gallery in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. The Maune Gallery celebrated its grand opening in  September. The 2,600-square-foot space has a clean look with white walls and a concrete floor. “It’s very contemporary, very open, so you can really appreciate the art. Everything else fades into the background,” Heidi says. Originally from St. Louis, Heidi has lived in Atlanta since 1988. She and Ramsey chose Miami Circle for their location since it’s known for design and art. The Maune Gallery represents contemporary and modern art primarily by world-renowned blue-chip artists, whose works are shown in museums and major collections. Each artist will have his or her own show lasting from six to eight weeks. 18

Midtown Lifestyle | November 2019


Ted Collier

Their first show, going on now until Nov. 9, consists of works by artist Alex Katz, who just completed a series called Coca Cola Girls.  Upcoming exhibitions will feature Donald Sultan, Justin Lyons and Ted Collier. Ted is known for his abstract, mostly largescale paintings representing diverse styles. He is best recognized though for his use of circles in his artworks. Also from St. Louis, Ted originally met Ramsey more than 35 years ago when they were both working in commercial real estate. About six years ago, Ramsey bought a piece from a show Ted was doing. Ramsey also asked for Ted’s help in proposing to Heidi by painting something special. “I thought it would be really cool to do my take on Cy Twombly, with his scribbles and kind of ‘script-ish-looking’  paintings,” Ted says.  “So, I actually hand-painted ‘Will you marry me?’ about 150 times on canvas. It worked; she said yes! It was so special to be included in that.” Although he had always wanted to be an artist, his parents steered him in another direction. They didn’t want the struggling artists’ life for him. Ted, who had an undiagnosed learning disability and went through 12 schools in 12 years, had a tough childhood. His parents knew he was a talented artist, but after his challenges, they wanted him to have a stable career. However, when his mom, whom he calls his best friend, became terminally ill in 2004, she sat him down and encouraged him to follow his dream. That talk planted a seed in his heart that slowly started to grow. When the market crashed in 2008, Ted was still working in commercial real estate and lost everything.

MAUNE GALLERY BRINGS WORLD-CLASS ART TO MIDTOWN

(CON TI N UED)

“The bank took my house, the repo man took my car, and I was reduced to nothing. I was working construction and finding scraps of plywood and extra paint and I was painting on that,” Ted says. “And now it’s kind of blossomed out of the ashes of my former life.” Around 2009, he met his wife, Katie, a chef. They were both at low points in their lives and started talking about their dreams. She wanted to be a chef in her own restaurant and he, of course, wanted to be an artist. They then decided to make their dreams a reality. “Eventually, Katie and I opened two Italian restaurants where she is the chef and I do my painting. We just feel so blessed to be able to do what we love every day,” Ted says. He enjoys forging different paths, finding new directions, and doing new things. Although he uses traditional brushes, he also likes making his own painting tools. About seven years ago, he developed something between a palette knife and a squeegee and has been using that more and more ever since. As a big outdoorsman, Ted finds inspiration in nature, among many other things. “I love cars and the beautiful gloss colors on them. I really enjoy surfaces. I play with matte, gloss  and satin, and I enjoy using that as a facet of my work. I love textiles, fabric and clothing, so I pull from a lot of different areas,” Ted says. He’s looking forward to showing his work in the Maune Gallery and being introduced to the Atlanta art scene. He’s creating about 20 pieces for the show that encompass a mix of large, mid-size and small pieces of many different styles. “I have a lot of friends in Atlanta and just love the city,” he says. His advice to other artists? “You have to do what you know is right in your own heart. I tell people they have to be passionate about what they’re creating, whether it’s music or writing or sculpture or painting. You can’t fake it, you can’t buy it, and you can’t teach it.” His show at the Maune Gallery opens Nov. 15. Heidi says Ted has a special place in their hearts and she and Ramsey look forward to having Atlanta see his art. “We feel like his work will do well here. Plus, he’s famous for these big circles, and showing his circle period on Miami Circle will be a lot of fun,” she says. Heidi and Ramsey want Atlanta to know that they’re very approachable. They look forward to meeting their community and educating people about their programs and the artists they carry. For further information on the gallery, and to see more about the artists, visit Maune.com.

Midtown Lifestyle | November 2019


PUMPKIN SPICE, APPLE CINNAMON AND A HOT CUP OF COCOA. Fall is all about getting warm and comfy as a chill hits the air—preparing yourself for winter, and cherishing those final moments of summer. As the nights grow longer, we’re embracing the Scandinavian secret of hygge by creating a space that emphasizes simple pleasures and finding joy in everyday moments—even when the weather is dreary. A burnt orange adirondack rug and woodland pillow set a ‘cozy cabin’ mood. Wicker baskets filled with apples and gourds are a reminder of the importance of the harvest, and a fun way to help teach young kids about the changing of the seasons. During this transitional time, light wood, fluffy blankets and scented candles beckon crisp autumn evenings, while a vase of fresh flowers—particularly mums—are an ode to the bright, sunny days we’re not quite ready to give up yet.

1. Create a table scape of mini pumpkins and gourds. Add tea lights and candles, mixing heights. Use twine or ribbon as napkin ties, and place leaves or nuts on the place settings. | 2. If orange does not suit your interior decor, use white mini pumpkins for a more formal look. Add small pots and vases to the center of the table to provide some elevation. | 3. Take a small tray or basket filled with pumpkins or gourds and add some floral and leaves. Create a simple but elegant place card with ribbon and fresh herbs for added aroma. | 4. Burlap. Go to a local fabric store and grab some burlap. It adds great texture to any table. Use it over a table cloth, mix in some rustic napkins and leaves; even on the most formal of table settings, it's a hit. | 5. Piles of Pumpkins. Get some apple crates and create displays of pumpkins—perfect for the corner of the dining room or kitchen. Also great to add to baskets for the kitchen island or a family room mantle display. A great mix of colored pumpkins in interior settings is both warm and welcoming.
