New Projects – Our New Form of Artistic Installation aka ‘The Quilt’ Is Ready!

Share

We’re delighted to inform our readers that the quilt that so many of you contributed to, has now been completed. For those of you not aware of this project, it involved mobile artists contributing one image and each one was then carefully included within a large quilt to be displayed at the next gallery show or even Mobile Arts Festival. There has been a few obstacles along the way and we have overcome each one. This quilt was sewed together and finalised by none other than mobile artist, Lorenka Campos’ mother in law. We all owe her much gratitude. The quilt is now with Lorenka Campos, so if you would like to display it at your next event, please contact her for details.

I have also been reminded and I shouldn’t have needed to be however, “Linda Toki did the whole layout of the quilt and had it printed. She also spent days working on the catalog so I really think she deserves a shout out as the quilt would never have happened without her”. We all need to give huge thanks to Linda M. Toki – join me!!

Mobile Photography & Art – The Courage to be Afraid – Showcase for Carolyn Hall Young

Share

Recently, I set up a Facebook group entitled – The Courage to be Afraid – A Tender Tribute to Human Valiance with Carolyn Hall Young. Hall Young is our dear friend and hugely talented artist and many of you are aware that she is currently experiencing particularly challenging health issues. This group was made with love and is full of love from all the artists who have joined this group to create and share their images for her. I have complied each image into a film showcase, so that she can view all of them in one sitting (hopefully). When she is feeling more well, I am sure she will be able to vist the group and view all of your kind words in full (more so, than the space allows me to write the titles).

(Please do note, that I have gone through the group several times, searching for all the images for this particular showcase and I believe I have included everyone, if not, please just let me know and I will add you).

Many thanks to the following artists for creating these images for Carolyn:

Vicki Cooper, Claudia Contreras, Carol Wiebe, Mandolina Moon, Violet Martins, Catherine Restivo, Headattacks Crealitys, Kate Zari Roberts, Lorenka Campos, Eric L Raddatz, Andy Butler, Deborah McMillion, Roger Guetta, Carol Dogsitter Smith, M.

Showering of Love – Appstracts Mobile Art Group with Roger Guetta

Share

Recently the Mobile Art Facebook Group Appstracts hosted on Facebook and run by one of our very own Columnists Roger Guetta, hosted a very touching mobile art challenge. The Challenge was for all the artists within this group to show their love for me by creating a unique image. The results are true testament to the tenderness and ability of our community of mobile artists and photographers and also the love story that we all share. The meticulous detail and thought that each and every mobile artist has put into this challenge sweeps me away. Your love beseeches me to revere your mobile art that awakens, sustains and nourishes all of us.

Guetta has created a mesmerising and very moving video of all the images and I have published this below. I viewed this many times yesterday and cried, a lot. So, much so that I was unable to create this post then. You have all touched my heart in a way that is so powerful. I am overcome by huge waves of happiness.

Thank you all to of course, dear Roger Guetta and to all the incredible artists that contributed to this magnificent outpouring of love, to me:  Jo Sullivan, Sukru Mehmet Omur, Grace Rachow, Clarisse Debout, Stephanie Paloni Chupein, Bruce Barrett, Jeanine Laskar, Kate Zari Roberts, Sammi Gravich, Antonio Mojica, Susan Rennie, Maura Shine, Christine O Sobczak, Juta Jazz, Elaine Taylor, Catherine Schell Caddigan, Gail Dohrmann, Diana Nicholette Jeon, Lee Atwell, Andrea Lewis, Violet Martins, Leon Williams, Giulia Baita, Sylvie Prevot, Clint Cline, Maura Shine, Claudia Contreras, Oleg Akilov, Andrea Lewis, Ile Mont, Karen Axelrad, Leon Williams, Adrienne Parks, Bruce Barrett, Kristina Růčková, Catherine Schell Caddigan, Liliana Schwitter, Barbara Nebel, Carol Wiebe, Marie Matthews.

I really hope I have not missed anyone out, please let me know if I have and I will add them immediately.
