Press Release: Fay Gold Curating "Onward" group exhibition

Thought I'd put out the word early on for my next group exhibition coming up in Atlanta on March 18th. Below is the press release... I'm just getting started on the new series of paintings. Please mark your calendars and stay tuned!
All the best,

Fay Gold Art Advisory
3670 Ridgewood Road
Atlanta, GA 30327

Fay Gold had a meeting with Massoud Besharat at his gallery, located in a renovated early 20th century warehouse in the Castleberry Hill arts district. He suggested that she curate an exhibition in his grand 3- story space of the artists whose careers she has impacted by their representation at her former gallery. Fay seized the opportunity for an exhilarating second wind and titled the exhibition “Onward”. The artist’s loyalty and enthusiasm for the project was unanimous. They were eager to reunite, expose the current direction of their work and express how they had moved “onward” in their creative process.

Thursday evening March 18, 2010, at Besharat Gallery, 175 Peters Street, Atlanta, GA 30313 there will be a private collectors VIP preview of “Onward” from 6 to 8 pm. The public opening will follow from 8 to 10 pm. Valet parking will be available.

Everyday our senses are bombarded with ideas that attempt to alter the way we think. It is a natural process to dispel the artistic myths that we may have believed in the past and offer a revolutionary solution that will revitalize our minds and spirits.

Special thanks to Massoud Besharat and Jesse Harrison for their efforts and support in making this exhibition possible.“Onward”continues through April 17, 2010.

Gallery hours during “Onward” are Thursday, Friday and Saturday: 12-5pm or by appointment. The gallery phone number is 404-524-4781.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year!

I hope this first day of 2010 finds you all rightly celebrated and well rested. I find myself overwhelmed with thoughts of new goals, ideas, and inspired to make the most of a brand new year. One of my many resolutions is to finally catch up from 2009 and keep all of you regularly updated on the exciting news and upcoming events regarding my artwork. Unfortunately I fell behind on this same promise last year, but thankfully, 2009 was full of blessings that kept me happily busy in the studio and with the galleries. With the economy showing some signs of improvement, I'm hopeful that things will continue in a positive direction and that 2010 will be prosperous for us all. January will be a time to begin updating my website at long last and share more news on a regular basis. To begin a bit of catch up, I've attached several images of my latest commissioned paintings proudly installed in their new homes. There are more images from shows and news bits and posts to come and already a few exhibitions and art events lined up through the galleries. Lots of exciting things going on and I look forward to sharing all of this and my new work with everyone in person throughout the new year.

My sincere thanks to you for your continued support; without it I would surely be lost.

I wish you Health...
So you may enjoy each day in comfort.

I wish you the Love of friends and family...
And Peace within your heart.

I wish you the Beauty of nature...
That you may enjoy the work of God.

I wish you Wisdom to choose priorities...
For those things that really matter in life.

I wish you Generosity so you may share...
All good things that come to you.

I wish you Happiness and Joy...
And Blessings for the New Year.

I wish you the best of everything...
That you so well deserve.
