Meet the “Tension” Artists!

C4 Atlanta is going to be hosting its first ever art show May 11th, 2013. Entitled “Tension,” it will feature the artwork of graduates from our Ignite program, an eight-week entrepreneurship seminar designed for the working artist.

Kicking of the show will be C4’s Arts Fuel fundraiser event. In addition to some great visual art, Arts Fuel will include entertainment from Dance Canvas, The Extraordinary Contraptions and Serenbe Playhouse. Also, included in the ticket price for Arts Fuel, food from local restaurants  and wine/beer.

We really love our super talented artists, and we thought you all should get to know them a little bit better. Enjoy our quick and fun q&a with three of the Tension artists. And be sure to check back later this week for more. Tickets are on sale now.

1. Favorite Atlanta Artist?
“It’s hard to isolate a single favorite Atlanta artist — I have to say that my favorite art is being produced by the inaugural Walthall Fellows, of which I’m a part.  I also love the work of some artists I’ve met through C4 Atlanta: Gina Thomson, Yun Bai, Vanessa Haung, & JillAnne Hertel, to name a few.  Finally, I have to say Mike Stasny has amazing work!”

2. Do you have any pets?
“I just rescued a pup in February!  Her name is Remy.  She’s a little, bourbon/chocolate colored pooch.  So far she’s taught me a lot about patience, laughing, responsibility and all the nooks and crannies of my neighborhood.”

3. Favorite local restaurant?
“I work at one of the best restaurants in Atlanta — La Tavola Trattoria, in Virginia Highland.  My other favorite is Pho Dai Loi #2 on Buford Highway, The Optimist, the Pinewood Tippling Room & Leons.”
