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.
Pivot- An exhibition featuring new works by Ron Saunders
Besharat Museum Gallery
175 Peters St.SW, Atlanta, GA 30313
Parking: 165 Mangum St.SW
Opening Reception February 9th, 2018, 5pm-7pm

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.

In the season of giving and compassion, consider donating
Household Starter Kit Items
This holiday season, Central Atlanta Progress is collaborating with Partners for HOME to create household starter kits for those transitioning out of the Peachtree-Pine Shelter and into permanent housing.
Partners for HOME is a nonprofit collaborating with the providers of the Atlanta Homeless Continuum of Care. Clients of 196 Peachtree-Pine shelter have moved into permanent housing. For the most part, they have few belongings, especially kitchen wares or cleaning supplies. A wish list of household items they need to start their homes has been created to aid in that transition.
In this season of giving and compassion, CAP and Partners for HOME invite the community to purchase entire starter kits or purchase a la carte items from $1 to $50 from the wish list on Amazon.com. Items range from hand soap and dryer sheets to laundry baskets and dishes. For those who wish to donate purchased items in person, items can be dropped off at 818 Pollard Blvd., 3rd floor, Atlanta GA 30315.
Supporting the Peachtree-Pine clients as they transition to permanent housing reaffirms our community’s commitment to making homelessness rare, brief and nonrecurring. We invite you to consider making a donation, in addition to sharing this information with your network. Thank you for your support!
A supplemental implosion of the Georgia Dome to remove Gate B and the East Wall has been set for December 20 at 1:00 a.m. This process has been determined to be the safest method to bring down the remaining infrastructure still standing.
A traffic suspension on Northside Drive will be in place from 12:30 am – 1:30 am. Traffic will be re-routed at Ivan Allen Blvd. and Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.
MARTA Rail service from Five Points to Vine City will be suspended beginning at 11:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 19th with bus shuttle service available as an alternative.
A 450 foot safety zone will be in effect around the perimeter of the Georgia Dome. There will be no public viewing areas, media staging areas, or post-implosion interviews.
