Out of the Vault, Volume 1
Out of the Vault, Volume 1
Date: 04.29.2014

Location: Athens Area Chamber of Commerce
Description:
Join the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission and the Athens Chamber for a kickoff event at 5:30 at the Chamber on April 29.

During the reception and book signing we will showcase Philip Juras’s Rock and Shoals Flatrock painted in 2001. “The flatrock shoal is an unusual place in the otherwise forested Piedmont around Athens,” said Juras. “I have found its aesthetic qualities and unique natural features to be a compelling subject.”

According to Doc, “One of the privileges of living in Athens is taking advantage of its vast range of artistic talent, and the Athens Chamber is honored to be hosting these exhibits of publically owned artworks that have been out of public view for a while. When I saw Philip Juras’ painting, I was moved by his exceptional talent and even happier to give the piece a temporary home where everyone can view and appreciate its beauty.”

In addition to seeing this painting unveiled, author Dorinda Dallmeyer (three time nominee for Georgia author of the year) will attend. Dallmeyer is the editor of Bartram's Living Legacy: The Travels and the Nature of the South
This book features Bartram's description of his natural history expedition across the south in 1773-1777 along with essays by 17 Southern nature writers inspired by Bartram's Travels as well as illustrations by Juras.

This event marks the first in a semi-annual series. After a preliminary inventory of the art housed in the city vault, the Athens Cultural Affairs Commission and the Chamber agreed to bring these pieces to the public’s attention.

Following a six-month exhibit at the Chamber the Juras painting will return to City Hall where it will be displayed for public viewing.
