Heidi Hunt’s Exhibit springs into summertime with a fresh look of artwork at the Vinings Library beginning July 18.

Be sure to attend the Artist Reception on July 28.  The meet and greet will begin at 1:30 to 3:30pm.

Heidi has always been fascinated with depicting the beauty of natural light falling on objects, the brilliance of nature’s creation, and the color harmonies and contrasts possible to perceive, distill and express on paper or canvas.  She has a special love of portraying the juxtaposition of interior and exterior spaces at windows, and also painting en plein aire, seeking out with fellow artists beautiful local spots for subjects as well as from time to time returning to New England to portray the idyllic rural landscapes where she grew up.

A fresh look at art and the local artists who inspire us.

ActiveNew Exhibit at The Gallery at Powder Springs

SCAA Staff

Another exhibit not to miss at The Gallery in Powder Springs featuring Nikki Davidson who won last year’s 30th SCAA National Juried Exhibit first place award as well as being a a multiple award winner in local and national competitions.

Exhibit begins August 3 until the end of September.  The Artist Meet and Greet Reception will be held August 20 from 5 to 7pm.

While primarily a portrait artist, Nikki is fascinated with all things western.  “ I first started painting portraits of Native Americans about seven years ago.  It was difficult in the beginning because first I had to earn their trust and friendship. Having formed friendships with these amazing peoples, I find my life has been greatly enriched. “

Her work is currently exhibited at The Down Town Gallery in Cartersville;  Douglasville Museum of History and Art, Booth Western Art Museum and the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art.

Mrs. Davidson is a proud supporter of our military and is a true patriot.  She donates art work annually to fund raising events in support of the SHARE Military Initiative, (Shepherd’s Men).  This year Mrs. Davidson was commissioned to paint a portrait of Charlie Daniels and was honored to be asked to present the portrait to Charlie personally.  “ Charlie is a serious supporter of our Vets and it was the highlight of a life time to meet him and now a cherished memory ” says Mrs. Davidson.

Take the time to come visit and see the artwork of Nikki Davidson.

Active31st National Juried Exhibit

SCAA Staff

Every year SCAA is gratified by the large number of entries receives for the National Juried Exhibit, nearly all of which are outstanding in terms of both execution and creativity.  The NJE is a juried show adjudicated by a third party who is an accomplished artist and an art instructor with many years’ experience. The talent of our applicants makes the selection process competitive and the judge’s job difficult.  The 31st NJE will consist of 78 pieces of artwork, with art pieces from other states as well as our SCAA, local metro Atlanta and other statewide Georgia artists.

The South Cobb Arts Alliance 31st Annual National Juried Exhibition theme is entitled Sanctuary and  will be shown from August 6th to September 19th 2018 at the Mable House Art Center.  The NJE Reception will be held August 11 from 5 to 7pm at which time awards will be presented.

The public is invited to meet and greet participants as well as community and art enthusiasts at the reception or to visit the Cobb County MHAC during it operational hours.  Musical accompaniment will be by Whitefield Academy.

Sanctuary can mean many things to different people. It might be a home… a place of refuge and protection, or the sense of security that a child feels when held in her mothers’ arms. A person may find sanctuary in his temple or church, or it may be found in nature among vast pine forests, or rolling meadows filled with wildflowers. Others still may find sanctuary within their own heart and imagination. In this exhibition we intend to explore the meaning and perception of Sanctuary to the individual artist, either in the literal sense or from a deeper, more metaphorical perspective.

SCAA is  honored to have Charles Young Walls as our juror and prize judge.   Charles has been an artist all of his life and art has always been in the forefront of his pursuits. He completed a BFA from Arizona State University after which, following years of artistic struggle, he finally found the training he was looking for. He studied art at the National Academy of Design and the Art Students League, both in New York City. Continuing to hone his painting skills, Charles then spent a decade pursuing a successful career in illustration before returning to the field of fine art. He enjoys a growing reputation as an award winning painter and has exhibited in numerous exhibitions in the South and nationwide. He received the Presidents’ Award of Excellence at the 2015 Oil Painters of America National Exhibition and at the 2013 OPA National Exhibition he was awarded the John August Dietrich Memorial Figurative Award of Excellence. Most recently he was awarded the Gold Medal at the 2015 OPA Salon Exhibition.

He is a member of the Portrait Society of America, and the American Impressionist Society, and is a Signature Member of Oil Painters of America. Charles and his wife currently live in the Atlanta area.
