EDITOR’SNOTE his is the time of year that I reflect on the past and what I am grateful for. I am very thankful for everyone who I’ve met through the seven years of this magazine. My intention has always been and continues to be to showcase our Southern Arc’s creative ideas, creative people and creative businesses. I continue to be amazed by you who, not only have a vision, but also who have the foresight and tenacity to start a business and persevere through prosperous and not so prosperous times. You are the creative energy behind our community. We all need you! The “arts” scene is exploding here on the south side of Atlanta. Since the dawn of this magazine, and now with other on-line and magazine publications, we see in each an every issue a recognition of fabulously creative artists and performers, both locally and nationally recognized. We are a fortunate community to have such a wealth of visionaries and talent.

Photography by Harwell Photography

In this issue our visual art focus is sculpture. Did you know that we have a foundry right here on the south side? Read further about Phillip Hutzelman, his Inferno Art Foundry in Union City, and the local and nationally known sculptors that use this facility. Every advertised business and individual in this issue recognizes the need to keep their name out there in order to say, “We are all alive and well and are ready to help and serve the community!” And with that thought in mind, please don’t forget that the holidays are the perfect time to purchase original art from a local artist or purchase a gift certificate from one of your favorite privately-owned restaurants or establishments. Wishing you a happy and blessed season. Happy Reading! Happy 2010!

estled behind a gazebo and beautiful foliage at the upscale Ashley Park in Newnan, Haven Medical Spa & Cosmetic Surgery is an aesthetically and professionally constructed facility for cosmetic procedures, both surgical and noninvasive. Behind Haven’s concept is Dr. Brian Chadwick, M.D. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Dr. Chadwick completed his Master’s and Doctorate in medical research, and completed medical school focusing on gynecology. During this time, he also trained in cosmetic surgery techniques. Dr. Chadwick has been in private practice as a gynecologist since his move to LaGrange, Georgia, over 12 years ago. Through the years, Dr. Chadwick’s patients have continued to request cosmetic surgical procedures to enhance their appearance and correct the effects of childbearing. Dr. Chadwick listened, and as a result, Haven was established in January, 2009. You can expect expert results for body sculpting at Haven. Among other procedures, Dr. Chadwick can remove stubborn fat deposits, repair skin stretching and perform Avelar abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). “I have created Haven as a place where you can come, be comfortable and ask all the questions you like,” says Dr. Chadwick. “Understanding your desires and concerns is my highest priority. I see my job as providing you the information necessary so that you can make an informed decision on how you might best correct an area of your body that concerns you and then perform that correction in a gentle, comfortable, and meticulous fashion.” Haven also offers a full line of esthetics

services. With the expertise of Licensed Esthetician Kay Roberts, Haven has the equipment to turn back the clock including microlaser peels, photofacials and fractional treatments. Complete with the most up to date laser technology for permanent hair removal, unlike many spas, Haven uses only laser light which eliminates hair permanently from its follicle. Their Sciton Profile laser is one of the few lasers that can comfortably and effectively remove hair for their African American clients. Educating the community is important to Dr. Chadwick. This Fall, Haven will be providing seminars and Dr. Chadwick will speak to any group to teach on their areas of expertise. Haven celebrates their Grand Opening beginning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Thursday, September 24. There will be ongoing promotions and events throughout the following week and will culminate with the launch of their custom make-up line: Mukha Cosmetics. Tim Maurer, the creator of the line and renowned make-up artist, will be performing make-overs to benefit the Breast Cancer Survivor’s Network. So no matter what your bodily or facial issues are, Dr. Chadwick and Kay Roberts are poised to help you and answer your questions. When asked if cosmetic surgery was an artistic expression, Dr. Chadwick answers, “Absolutely! My grandfather was a master cabinet maker who created beautiful things with his hands . . . I believe I have inherited his skills and am applying them to a different medium.” Haven • Ashley Park • 350 Newnan Crossing Bypass • Newnan, Georgia • Ph: 770.502.7775 email:havenmedspa@att.net.

PANOPLY

Panoply’s Trend Prediction for Fall 2009 By Amanda Campbell, Interior Designer at Panoply

F

all is upon us and with it come cooler temperatures, changing of the leaves, and of course, Fall trends. Thankfully not all trends come and go as quickly as the seasons or we would all spend a fortune trying to keep our homes decorated accordingly. The most important thing to remember is to choose your battles. If you aren’t quite ready for a complete overhaul, then keep it light with new pillows, window treatments, and paint/wall treatments. If your goal is to stay with the times while investing in something with longevity, then read on for a brief synopsis of what fall trends have to offer. Shades of yellow, amazing wall treatments and the latest technologies dominate the scene this fall. Whether you want to express your sunny side with a rain slicker yellow or emphasize drama with a bronzy gold, you can’t go wrong with this mood elevating hue. Sherwin Williams is a good source for the latest color innovations. Contact Panoply for an appointment to pull your scheme together. Yellow not your thing? No worries, try a room altering wall treatment like wallpaper or wood flooring. Wallpaper made resurgence in

early spring this year and it just gets stronger by the minute. Check out Seabrook.com for the latest and greatest and don’t forget that Panoply is your nearest dealer of many name brand wall coverings. You may have noticed wood flooring being used on walls and ceilings everywhere from your favorite TV shows to high-end magazines a year or so ago. Well now those TV land dreams can be a reality. If you’re ready for a show stopping focal wall, give Panoply a call for more details. Last but not least is the latest technological advance for the kitchen. You may have seen this trend in a Delta faucet commercial recently. If you’re a germ-a-phobe or simply have your hands full, there is now a faucet that you can turn on by a simple tap of the wrist, elbow, chin or whatever you have free. Take a look at Deltafaucet.com to see what it’s all about. It’s more affordable than you think. Following these fall trends won’t leave you outdated by next summer, but rather ahead of the curve of what’s to come. If you hit a wall, and it isn’t fabulous, simply give Panoply a call and let us help you make it happen. | arts&expressions® magazine |

FEATURE: THE INFERNO ART FOUNDRY

Phillip Hutzelman Casts Beauty at his Inferno Art Foundry By Elizabeth Weaver

W

hen you bring together the sensitivity of an accomplished artist with the skill of a craftsman, it’s magic. Not only has Phillip Hutzelman developed that magical touch, he shares it with other sculptors at Inferno Art Foundry in Union City, GA, where he serves as owner and president. “I’ve always had a love of nature and wanted to bring my vision alive in a large scale,” he says. “I knew that bronze would be the best material to achieve my vision due to its strength and durability, so I started a foundry at my home in Newnan. As my client base and demand grew, the foundry grew until it developed into Inferno Art Foundry.” For over 20 years, Inferno Art Foundry has specialized in expert mold making. The staff is comprised of qualified artists with experience in bronze and aluminum casting through lost wax process, various patinations and sculpture restoration. Sculptors throughout the region— and across the US—trust that their visions will be achieved at the foundry. Some of the major works that have received care at Inferno Art Foundry are: • Alan Shepard, by Robert Rasmussen, installed at the US Astronaut Hall of Fame in Titusville, FL • Flag Bearer Mississippi 11th, by William Beckwith, installed at Gettysburg National Military Park in Gettysburg, PA • Ray Charles, by Andy Davis, installed at the Ray Charles Plaza in Albany, GA, and

18

| arts&expressions® magazine |

• Wright Brothers National Memorial, by Stephen Smith, installed at Kill Devil Hills, NC. Michelle Henry, Inferno Art Foundry secretary, points out that sculptors are welcome to participate in much of the process to ensure their satisfaction. “We carefully consider each aspect of the artwork, from scale to surface details, and we make sure to capture every nuance, whether we’re working with a monument or miniature.” The Inferno Art Foundry Sculpture Garden features some of Phillip’s artwork, which has a symbiotic relationship with nature. “The Box Series” is one of his latest works. “It appeals to the psychological and physical forces acting in all of us,” he explains. “These forces act as transformational experiences, much like evolving seasons.” A native of Indiana, Phillip followed his love of nature and studied Marine Biology and Art before making the commitment to pursue his passion for art. After receiving his MFA from Washington University in St. Louis, he gained valuable experience working in commercial foundries. Phillip moved to Georgia in 1987 and began pursuing his passion as an independent artist. Some of his more recent exhibitions include “Green Space,” a show at Perimeter College and Eyedrum Contemporary Arts Center. He also does regular lectures and demonstrations at Sloss Southern Conference on Cast Art and workshops at Emory University.

SCULPTOR ARTIST NNAMDI OKONKWO

Conversation, 11 x 18 x 8 in.

Sculpting Spirit By Elizabeth Weaver

N

namdi Okonkwo’s sculptures are beautifully simple and stylized, but they contain a depth of spirit that immediately embraces anyone who encounters them. His success means that people across the U.S. are touched by his art, since his works are found in galleries and gardens throughout the country. Some of the galleries displaying Nnamdi’s sculptures are: Act 1 Gallery in Taos, NM; Nicole Gallery in Chicago, IL; Phoenix Gallery in Park City, UT; and Waxlander Gallery in Santa Fe, NM. The sculptor explains that his thoughts and ideas are embodied in fluid lines and simple shapes, and that his proportions are based on his personal ideal of beauty and balance. “My figures, instead of being confined to a model, become a symbol of humanity,” he says. “I avoid distractions of any extraneous details that do not add to the beauty of the whole design. Attitudes, gestures and overall composition are of primary importance to me.” The rotund forms symbolize abundant life, an outward manifestation of a largeness of soul, Nnamdi adds. All his sculptures have a monumental feel—even the miniatures— because his art speaks so clearly of his motivation. “My inspiration comes from the aspect of

20

| arts&expressions® magazine |

the human soul that I find sublimely beautiful and noble,” he says. “Beyond that, I am inspired by the man made as well as the natural beauty of the external world.” Though his studio and home are now in Fayetteville, GA, Nnamdi is originally from Eastern Nigeria, where he says he was drawn to art from the earliest years he can remember. He earned a degree in painting in Nigeria, but after some time, he realized that sculpture, with its three-dimensional quality, was the best means for expressing himself creatively. “More so in the creation of sculpture than in any other art form, I experience a joyful excitement and meaning. Sculpting is tactile; it can manipulated and shaped with my own hands rather than with brushes or tools,” Nnamdi says. “There’s a direct connection with the clay or wax. So the love I have for sculpture is instinctive, and it’s only natural that I channel my creative energy to sculpting.” At about the same time he was discovering his preference for sculpture, Nnamdi was also introduced to the game of basketball, a sport well suited to his 6’ 9” frame. He was recruited by Brigham Young University-Hawaii and played basketball for the school from 1989 to 1993. Upon graduating with a BFA in


SCULPTOR ARTIST NNAMDI OKONKWO Sculpture, Nnamdi went on to get an MFA in Sculpture from BYU-Provo in 1997. During that time, he met and married his wife Deidra, an Idaho native with a Master of Accountancy; they now have three children. Womanhood is a prevalent aspect of Nnamdi’s sculpture. He says that he’s captivated by the characteristics embodied in womanhood, such as love, empathy, strength and resilience. “The women closest to me, my wife and my mother, have influenced me greatly and are exemplars of these noble attributes.” His art, he emphasizes, is a personal statement, a unique viewpoint formed by his life experiences. And his work, therefore, is a projection of his deep personal beliefs about the nobility and expansiveness of the human spirit. Although his sculptures are figurative, they are intensely personal, both for Nnamdi and the viewer. “Because I want people to relate to my work on a personal level, I am drawn to figurative sculpture, which evokes a stronger and more convincing feeling of humanity. It is more tangible so I can create in sculpture an object that is real, something that displaces and occupies space, and can even have its own soul, evocative of a real person. Thus sculpture, I believe, is more convincing, and it is easier for people to see themselves and relate to sculpture than any other medium.”

Mother and Child, 24 x 21 x 17 in.

*** Several of Nnamdi’s sculptures— Expectation, Tranquility II, Solemnity, Damsel and Longing II—were cast, or otherwise treated, at the Inferno Art Foundry in Union City. Nnamdi says he learned about the foundry from other sculptors. “I have found the people at Inferno Art Foundry dependable and easy to work with,” he states. “I am particularly impressed by their capacity to cast very large monumental works.” *** For further information visit www.nnamdiart.com Contact Nnamdi at nnamdi@nnamdiart.com Ph: 404.835.7807

SCULPTOR ARTIST ANDY DAVIS

Sculpture of Chick-fil-A founder, Truett Cathy at Truett’s Grille in Griffin, GA

An Inspired Touch

I

By Elizabeth Weaver

n his studio, the talent of Andy Davis is immediately evident. The space is filled with projects in all phases of completion. There are sketches of new ideas next to photos of installed works on his wall. A full-size rendition of Hugh Hefner is in progress and a clay lighthouse is perched on a table, ready to have its final details added. There’s a strong sense that Andy loves what he does—and he does it very well. It’s also easy to see the conscientious way he approaches the business side of art, while retaining the wonder and joy of creation evident in all his works. “Big things start with big thoughts,” Andy says. His art has become a big thing, especially with some of his recent notable life-size bronze sculptures: Ray Charles at the piano, installed in Charles’ hometown of Albany, GA; Chick-fil-A founder Truett Cathy placed at Truett’s Grille in Griffin, GA; and James “Radio” Kennedy from the movie Radio. There’s no sign of things slowing down, either. Due to his talent and business acumen, Andy has projects lined up for the next three to four years. While many artists either don’t know or don’t care about the practical side of the sculpting, Andy says that it’s an aspect of the art business that he approaches as willingly as the artistic side. He normally finds a way to finance and promote his sculptures before he begins to work the clay. As he says, “I usually wait to move on a project until it ‘has legs’. I figure out how

22

| arts&expressions® magazine |

to promote and pay for the time I spend on a sculpture. That means finding the market, setting up the meetings and so on.” Andy draws on his earlier experiences, having owned two businesses before becoming a full-time sculptor, and draws inspiration from other successful artists. “Many of our best painters and sculptors were also good business people—Peter Maxwell, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol,” he adds. A Rotarian, Andy is always on the lookout for opportunities to reach out to the community and involve them in his art. While sculpting the Ray Charles statue, several blind students were brought into the studio to get a hands-on experience. It was especially meaningful for them to be involved with the statue of a blind man who loved his music and overcame his lack of sight to succeed. As a self-taught artist, Andy developed his natural talents through the years. He sculpted scale models of classic cars in the mid to late 1980’s and has evolved into a major celebrated artist who works on subjects that inspire him. Originally from Ocala, FL, Andy has lived in Georgia since 1967. His artistic sensibilities go back to his early years, Andy says. “I thought I saw beings in the sky making clouds, and that the rows of clouds had been planted by the cloudmakers. I was devastated when, in first grade, I was told those rows of seedling clouds were actually vapor trails left by planes.” Despite the logical explanations,


SCULPTOR ARTIST ANDY DAVIS the images stuck fast in Andy’s mind and have evolved into a series of sculptures he’s currently working on—The Cloudmakers. He says that the meticulously detailed lighthouse in his studio will grace the grounds of Light House Village (LHV) in Conyers, GA. Since 2004, LHV has provided much-needed services including a respite care home for special needs children and adults, emergency and temporary housing and services for displaced families and short-term residences for medically fragile children. Andy says, “The lighthouse sculpture will be there when people pull in, in need of shelter and a safe haven. My hope is that when they see the beacon in this lighthouse, they’ll know that they’re safe and feel encouraged.” Another project in the works is a full-size sculpture of Hugh Hefner that has special meaning for Andy because of Hefner’s relentless defense of the freedom of artistic expression. “Hef fought a big battle and paved the road for a lot of good,” Andy says, then admits. “I believe that my art should glorify the Ultimate Creator and one of His most spectacular creations— the beauty and grandeur of the human form,” Andy continues. “I take comfort in knowing that I’m doing what I was born to do, to honor the craft of sculpture by producing the most meaningful artwork I possibly can.”

*** Andy has used Inferno Art Foundry for his sculptures that require hot castings. He says that the foundry is a “great assistant because the staff is made up of artists. They assist me to achieve just what I’ve envisioned for my final product.” *** For further information visit www.andydavisgallery.com Contact Andy Davis at andy.davis@andydavisgallery.com Ph: 404.429.7708 | arts&expressions® magazine |

I was introduced to this webbased system that is such a help to me for my business, as well as for me personally. It is so easy to do, very inexpensive (less than $1 per card) and is so rewarding. I can choose over 13,000 stock cards, send my own heartfelt message, in my own handwriting, with my own signature, upload my own photos or logo, and even send gifts or gift cards along with my card. It all goes though the U.S. Mail right to my recipients mail box! I welcome you to give it a try!

I personally designed this card to send to a friend!

(via the U.S. Postal Service)

See how easy it is? Now you can sit back and feel good in knowing that you’ve sent heartfelt messages to your clients, family and friends. Perfect for the holidays, too! Make someone feel appreciated EVERYDAY.

LET THEM EAT TOFFEE

A

lways with a welcoming smile, Kerry and Phyllis Graham invite you to come in to their chocolate shop on the square in Newnan, Georgia, to taste the perfect complement of European dark chocolate with the sweetness of toffee, toasted Georgia pecans, and the crisp, melt in your mouth texture of this heavenly treat. Born in Atlanta and reared in Georgia and North Florida, Kerry Graham grew up with the rich culinary traditions of “The South”. Kerry still remembers handdipping chocolates, making fruit cake, peanut brittle and toffee for the holidays with his mother and sister. While living in Tallahassee, the Grahams’ had met “backyard neighbor’s”, Pierre Vivier and his wife, Rainey. Born near Grenoble, France, Pierre came to the U.S. in the ‘70’s to be executive chef at Le Bistro, a restaurant in Macon, Georgia, and then later they opened their own restaurant, Chez Pierre, in Tallahassee. As the story goes, Pierre, trained as a pàtissier and chocolatier, was commissioned to

34

| arts&expressions® magazine |

make a dark chocolate covered toffee to send as “Après Christmas” gifts. Trained in the traditional French style, and having no experience with making toffee, particularly Southern-style toffee, Pierre welcomed Kerry’s family recipes to help perfect his Dark Chocolate Pecan Toffee, a distinctively divine Southern confection created with the uncompromising passion for quality of a French chocolatier. Along with many other confections, you can still enjoy this incredibly delicious Georgia Pecan Toffee, made the same way Pierre made it, by visiting Phyllis and Kerry’s establishment, “Let them eat TOFFEE!”. Visit their shop, order online or by phone. When you stop by, make sure you ask to try Kerry’s original recipe for Fig Newnan’s! They are delicious. “Y’all come see us. Bon Appètit!” Location: 18A N. Court Square, Newnan, Georgia, 30263 • Phone: 770.683.0137 www.LetThemEatToffee.com
