TCP's own Justin Rabideau's "WASTE NOT" Exhibition opens this friday at Barbara Archer Gallery

Our dear Justin Rabideau, TCP Artist-in-Studio Resident, has been putting his residency to great use in preparation for his most recent exhibit "WASTE NOT". It opens Friday Mar 2nd, from 7 to 10pm at Barbara Archer Gallery and will remain on view until March 24th.

"WASTE NOT" portrays two artists grappling with change, transformation, and re-interpretation. Justin Rabideau extracts meaning and purpose from forgotten materials, while James Bridges preserves moments by abstracting them to the point of essence. The artists savor everything, letting nothing go to waste.

 

This exhibit has been organized and curated by our friends over at Dashboard Co-op.

 

We can't wait to see you there!

BENEFIT EXHIBITION MARKS OUTSTANDING SUCCESS FOR TCP

THE SECOND COMING BENEFIT EXHIBITION MARKS OUTSTANDING SUCCESS FOR THE CREATIVES PROJECT

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:  NOVEMBER 2, 2011 (Atlanta, Georgia):

In a night deemed mysterious, ethereal, and hauntingly beautiful, The Creatives Project (TCP) welcomed more than 300 guests to THE SECOND COMING Art Exhibition and Benefit Friday, October 14th. Held at The Goat Farm Arts Center in West Midtown, the celebratory evening included a captivating video presentation, abstract art installations, a sculpture garden, and free-floating gallery walls of paintings and photography. Works by critically acclaimed artists TINDELMICHI, Corrina Sephora Mensoff, Amandine Drouet, Shana Robbins and Neda Abghari were featured in the main gallery, while a side gallery showcased artwork from TCP’s newly announced resident "Artists in Studio": Justin Rabideau, Brandon Sadler, Ashley Schick, Marcy Starz, Nikki Starz, Hannah Perner-Wilson, Margaret Hiden, Jerushia Graham, and the work of the youth they mentor through TCP’s nonprofit beneficiary One Love Generation.


Keeping with the spirit of collaboration, the evening also featured musical performances by members of Jack of Hearts, BOSCO, and special guest violinist Lindsay Fisher, with cocktails courtesy of Grey Goose Vodka and light bites from Westside Pie and Ormsby’s. Guests were treated to a Dewar’s Scotch tasting while they browsed the exhibition. The magical mood was set courtesy of designers Branden M. Collins and The Big Up. The diverse crowd included artists and musicians, entrepreneurs, business and gallery owners, and community leaders such as Atlanta City Councilman Kwanza Hall. "The future of Atlanta lies in the hands of our creatives and in innovative groups like The Creatives Project. They deserve all the support we can give," said Hall.

TCP founder and Executive Director Neda Abghari remarked on the evening’s success: “It was truly touching to share this special night with Atlanta. So many individuals came together to bring this vision to life and we are so grateful to every one of them. We strived to create an intimate evening, inviting each of our guests to join the TCP family, and we feel so rewarded with the results. Thank you all.”


The Creatives Project would like to extend a special thank you to the Host Committee and Advisory Board, the volunteers, the staff at The Goat Farm Arts Center, all of the artists who performed and participated, the set designers, the media supporters, and all of the TCP sponsors – Grey Goose Vodka, FUZE Beverage, BINDERS, Colorchrome, Trinity Productions and Teka Photography.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Atlanta, Georgia – 11 February 2011)


Despite a very cold and rainy night in Georgia, The Creatives Project (TCP) hosted its inaugural fundraiser JUNG at HeART” – a play on the phrase “young at heart” – to a crowd of over 300 last Friday evening at King Plow Event Gallery.  The invitation only VIP Reception, sponsored by Ultimat Vodka, gave guests an intimate look at TCP’s newest outreach initiative, The Creative Community Housing Project (CCHP).   A non-profit organization, CCHP will provide housing and financial support to creatives, while pioneering community and social responsibility, and encouraging creativity and growth through the arts and arts education.  “JUNG at HeART” specialty cocktails and bites from Bakeshop were enjoyed to a soundtrack by Mike Zarin and Social Studies.  VIP guests received limited edition prints provided by Colorchrome and were also treated to a brief artist lecture by each of the collaborators, Fahamu PecouBethany Marchman and Neda Abghari.

The main event was also well attended with requests for an extended exhibit prompting Neda Abghari to promise guests with another show “sooner than later”.  Several other shows are also in the works to continue CCHP’s fundraising efforts.  “Friday night was a huge step in the right direction,” said Executive Director, Neda.  “We want to keep that momentum going and continue to raise awareness that supports the Atlanta arts community.”  The VIP Reception host committee, including Shana Robbins, Felicia Feaster and Commissioner Ashley D. Bell stayed and mingled as the sounds of DJ Vicki Powell gave way to Salah Ananse; the dancing began and several toasts to the future of The Creative Community Housing Project were made.
