Thank you to all the volunteers that helped with our neighborhood day of service! We had a Great Day Volunteering with the guys of Fire station #1, Council woman Cleta Winslow, the Castleberry Hill Athletic Club, residents and business owners of the Neighborhood in Observance of the Martin Luther King Jr Holiday.
The people working and residing within The Historic Arts District of Castleberry Hill choose to share a narrative that focuses on the true sense of community that is open to and serving all.

Besharat Gallery Museum is excited to announce an expansion of its current activities to include exhibitions by innovative Atlanta artists. The gallery is best known for its beautiful space and Massoud Besharat’s extensive private art collection; however, on Feb 9th, during the Castleberry Hill Art Stroll, the exhibition ‘Pivot’ by Ron Saunders will be featured. Pivot represents both Ron Saunders’ future endeavors and current art practice. Ron presents a set of new abstract paintings that expose the tension between traditional organization and uncontrolled natural forces resulting in imagery that could be coined “cataclysmic formalism”. Through this lens, the paintings are unstable- background and foreground battle each other for dominance while giving rise to myriad emerging forms and clarifications. Through embracing the space between control and disorder, the striking unexpected visuals toy between beauty and inevitability.
Along with this set of newer paintings, Ron continues his frozen pigment painting practice, which was first introduced in 2000. These works stand in opposition to the other paintings, in that they are created almost void of human intervention. These works, which are truly up to chance, are initiated by freezing water-borne paint and allowing it to melt and reconstitute over several days. Although the final imagery is aesthetically beautiful, the paintings can be seen as raw documentation of numerous state changes and natural forces that have their own dynamic.
The 2nd Friday of every month, the Castleberry Hill Art Stroll is held throughout the neighborhood! It is a self-guided tour and is completely FREE of charge! New info is posted here as it becomes available and info sheets/maps will be posted the week of the event and available at 180 Walker St SW in front of Bottle Rocket the night of the Stroll.
