• GOLDEN: Artist Hangout to Employee Owned

    Golden Artist Colors Young Sam Golden, third from left, NYC 1930s

    During the 1930’s Sam Golden partnered with his uncle, Leonard Bocour, at Bocour Artist Colors. Together they produced hand-ground oil colors for artists in their shop on 15th Street in Manhattan.

    It wouldn't be too long before the shop became a hangout for artists such as Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler and Jack Levine.

    During the late 1940’s, Sam worked with a resin, given to him by an artist, to develop the first acrylic paint - “Magna and then the popular “Aquatec”. Through continued conversations with artists, Sam would refine the chemistry of acrylic paint.

    In June of 1980 and at the age of 67, Sam founded Golden Artist Colors, Inc. Sam, his wife Adele, son Mark, daughter-in-law Barbara Golden and partner Chuck Kelly started the company in a 900 square foot renovated barn with a clear mission that embodies Sam’s dedication for “making tools for artists”.

    Sam and Adele Golden Adele & Sam Golden

    With loyal support from professional artists, GOLDEN expanded their operation into a cow barn giving them an additional 6,200 square feet of space. With this growth they added new product lines: Heavy Body and Iridescent Acrylics grew to include Fluid, Matte and Interference Acrylics.

    By the time GOLDEN celebrated its tenth anniversary (and Sam’s “Golden” anniversary in paint making) the company had added another 13,000 square feet that included space for a gallery.

    During the 1990’s the company received many local and national awards and with a surge in growth, sales and employees once again found themselves with the need to expand.

    On March 11th, 1997, at the age of 82, Sam Golden passed away leaving behind a legacy of participation in the creative process of artists and their materials.

    GOLDEN continues in this tradition, maintaining a culture of individual excellence and community involvement. In 2002, GOLDEN became an employee owned company. And despite worldwide distribution, GOLDEN products are American made and still being produced on the grounds of the original barn in New Berlin.

    GOLDEN Principles:

    1. Make the best products
    2. Provide customers with the best service
    3. Find people who can make the first two happen

    BINDERS offers a great selection selection of Golden paints and mediums in store and online.

     

  • Ampersand: Extraordinary Surfaces

    Charles Ewing inventor of claybord Charles Ewing inventor of claybord

    Ampersand Art Supply is the leading manufacturer of painting panels in the United States.

    Ampersand’s first coated painting panel was invented by Colorado fine artist, Charles Ewing.

    Charles loved the scratchboard drawing technique but found he needed a surface that would readily accept water media and that could be varnished and framed without the need for glass.

    For 10 years Charles made claybord panels, one or two at a time, for his own use. With a vision to reach national and international markets he partnered with Ampersand in 1994.

    Over the years, Ampersand has added many wonderful painting panels with unique surface coatings and profiles suitable for all media from oils to pastels.

    Ampersand is committed first and foremost to supporting artists in their creative process by providing surfaces that are not only a joy to paint and create on, but that will also withstand the test of time.

    Ampersand’s commitment to quality and archival principles led them to engineer the only archival sealed panels on the market today. Artists using the full range of panels from Claybord™ to Gessobord™ to the Artist Panel™ can rest assured that every step has been taken to ensure quality and performance.

    Ampersand Art Supply panel chartNot only are Ampersand Museum Series panels made in the US, they are also eco-friendly and artist-safe. Ampersand takes great pride in manufacturing their products to meet the exacting standards of artists while also placing the safety of artists and the environment at the forefront of their concerns. Ampersand is also very pleased to help further the arts and education by manufacturing the highest quality art materials possible.

    Ampersand Museum SeriesTop 3 reasons to use Ampersand Museum Series panels

    1. Superior Quality Materials and Attention to Detail

    No other panel on the market protects an artist’s work like an Ampersand™ panel. Every coated Ampersand™ Museum Series panel is protected by proprietary Archival-Seal™ barrier technology, the most advanced formula for sealing wood that prevents support induced discoloration and makes Ampersand panels archival. Only Ampersand uses true high density hardboard made from US-grown renewable Aspen wood fibers and constructs their cradle support frames using 13-ply birch plywood.

    2. Responsibility to Artists and the Environment

    Central to Ampersand’s mission is to ensure that their products do not harm the environment or the artists who use them. Ampersand true artist hardboard is made from FSC certified forest products that promote sustainable forests. FSC certification is considered the most effective environmental standard for the protection of wildlife, plants, soil and water. Ampersand’s hardboard supports are formaldehyde-free and do not contain organic compounds that generate harmful gas emissions. In addition, they routinely test the raw materials they use to ensure artists safety and consistency in quality. Ampersand Museum Series panels manufactured in the US from US sourced raw materials.

    3. Knowledge, Experience and Education

    Before painting on any unprimed wood panel, you should seal it first to prevent support induced discoloration. Then, coat it with an oil/alkyd primer or acrylic dispersion ground. If you are mounting paper or textiles, you must have a barrier seal between the fabric or paper and the bare wood panel. We recommend using PVA size; many conservators consider it superior to traditional hide glue for sealing wood. However, if sealing, priming and sanding sounds like too much work, all Ampersand Museum Series prepared panels are pre-sealed, pH neutral and ready to use.

    Ampersand extraordinary surfaces are available in our stores and online.

    BINDERS® History: Beer, Binders and Beyond

    BINDERS® was a stationery and gift store when two brothers purchased it in 1955.  Moe & Joe Krinsky, owners of the highly successful beer joint Moe's & Joe's Tavern in the Highlands neighborhood of Atlanta made BINDERS® their first adventure into retail.

    A year after taking over the store, at the suggestion of a salesman, the brothers put in paint. The first artist paint line to go up on the shelf was Permanent Pigments- known today as Liquitex. And thus, BINDERS® as we know it today was born. (read more)

  • Creating Children’s Books was a Lifelong Dream

    Creating Children’s Books was a Lifelong Dream for Elizabeth O. Dulemba

    Tell us a bit about how you got started creating children’s books.

    Creating children's books was a lifelong dream of mine. I remember staring at Garth Williams' THE GOLDEN BOOK OF ELVES AND FAIRIES as a child and wanting to create that kind of magic for others.

    CreatingChildrensbooks with Elizabeth O. Dulemba Image Courtesy of the Artist

    Life got in the way for a while—I worked as an Art Director and in-house illustrator in the corporate world for twelve years (mostly in child-related industries). When I got married, I went freelance full-time, and finally began to pursue my dream.

    It took three years of honing my craft and sending out advertisements for my skills before I signed my first contract. (That's considered fast in the children's book world.) After that, things took off. Twelve years later, I have two dozen titles to my credit and I can't imagine doing anything else!

     What are you working on currently?

    My first mid-grade novel will come out this spring, A BIRD ON WATER STREET, so I've been busy wrapping up final details in preparation for its release. That's been a ten-year-long project, so I'm so excited for it to finally reach the world!

    I just finished a series of picture books for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, which will be given out by doctors, free to patients with young children. The books are about proper nutrition, exercise, hydration, etc. It's a feel-good project I'm very proud of, which will help raise healthier children.

    I recently did an illustration for Highlights Magazine, started a picture book for a book packaging client, and am writing another novel. I also just received an offer on a fun good-night story, which I both wrote and illustrated. But I can't share further details about that right yet. Needless to say, I stay busy!

    A BIrd on Water Street Image Courtesy of the Artist

     What advice would you offer anyone wanting to create a children’s book?

    Taking my class is a great first step. I also highly recommend joining the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. (I'm the Illustrator Coordinator for the Southern region of Alabama, Georgia, and the Florida panhandle.)

    The SCBWI is the largest writing organization in the world and ties all us children's book creators together. They offer fantastic online resources along with regional and national conferences, which can teach pre-published writers about the business. And they're some mighty fine folks to hang out with.

     “I also hope they'll take away a new love and appreciation for children's books and the unique art form they are.” 

     

    What do you hope students will take away from your Creating Picture Books workshop?

    First, I hope they gain some serious skills. My class is intense and students do tend to learn a lot in a short amount of time. Usually the difference between student manuscripts at the beginning of my class and at the end is remarkable. And I share industry information that gives them resources to pursue after class.

    I also hope they'll take away a new love and appreciation for children's books and the unique art form they are.

    Lastly, I hope they'll leave with a love for writing. Not everybody gets published, or wants to get published. But that shouldn't stop anybody from enjoying the therapeutic and creative joy of writing.

  • The Atlanta Printmakers Studio - Print Big!

    The Atlanta Printmakers Studio, Print Big!

    at BINDERS Limelight Gallery

    Print BigPrint Big

    The Atlanta Printmakers Studio began in 2005 as a group of people passionate about printmaking, community, and collaboration who wanted to pool together to create an organization.

    APS is a non-profit community art center that offers print shop access, critical exchange, and collaborative opportunities between artists, as well as a number of educational events, workshops, and exhibitions. APS has made it their mission to nurture the practice of printmaking as an original art form among professional artists and anyone who wants to learn.

    Print Big! Their annual steamroller printmaking event started in 2010 as a way to collaborate on a common goal at a large scale. The event brings together a lot of different groups in the art community, including those unfamiliar with printmaking.

    Print Big! is held outdoors at APS and a steamroller is used as a printing press to roll over the woodcuts. The resulting prints are gigantic in size and amazing to look at. The event also serves as a lively exchange – bringing together volunteers, artists, and community members from across Georgia, as well as arts organizations like Hammonds House Museum, WonderRoot, Abernathy Arts Center, and Southwest Arts Center.

    The unusualness of the event, making 8” x 4” foot prints with a steamroller gets a lot of folk’s attention. Each organization spends two to three months planning and carving the blocks before arriving for the massive, day-long event. Each group will print three times during the event and APS supplies the fabric and ink with over fifty volunteers helping for the day.

    After the event each group keeps one of the prints and APS keeps two, one for their archives and the other for their annual art auction.

    Big Print Event April 2013 Image Courtesy of APS

    Last year APS had 10 groups participating in Print Big! including our own Atlanta Printmakers Studio members, Kennesaw State University, Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, University of West Georgia, Sunday Southern Arts Revival, North Atlanta High School, and Shiloh High School.

    The event revolves around a theme. For the past few years APS has focused on literacy and southern stories. APS tries to keep the themes somewhat broad so that each group has a lot of room for interpretation. Some of the results have been a portrait of the writer W.E.B. DuBois and Gutenberg and the revolutionary invention of movable type.

    It’s a printmaking extravaganza! APS has tours of the studio, demonstrations, guest artists, and they offer smaller portable presses for kids to use. They also print t-shirts on their etching press and have a food truck on site. In the past live music, poetry readings, and a photo booth have been incorporated.

    The Atlanta Printmakers Studio is a pillar in the Atlanta arts community and the success of Print Big! represents the interest and relevancy of the medium. Bringing different groups from high schools and Georgia colleges has exposed students to opportunities for internships, exhibitions, our artist-in-residence program, and classes and workshops. APS is committed to nurturing the next generation of printmakers.

    Big Print Event April 2013 Image Courtesy of APS

    Print Big! 2014 will be the 5th anniversary of APS’s most exciting community event and they’re doing something extra special to celebrate. To help make 2014 the biggest and best Print Big! yet, APS is inviting 20 different groups to take part in making a 4’ x 4’ block.

    APS will team up two schools/groups to work together to create a print. Each team will carve one 4’ x 4’ foot block. The theme is OPPOSITES ATTRACT so think contradiction, paradox, duality, opposition or collaboration.

    Date: Saturday April 12, 2014

    Here is the list on the Print Big! participating groups for 2014:

    1. Atlanta Printmakers Studio
    2. SCAD-Atlanta
    3. SCAD-Savannah
    4. Kennesaw State University
    5. University of West Georgia

    About Wade

    Wade Harrison was encouraged to express himself through art from the very beginning. Growing up in the late 60’s and 1970’s, Wade became heavily influenced by the tide of the Black Power movement.

    Taking self-awareness cues from his mother and coupling that with the creative talent of his photographer father, Wade gravitated toward revolutionary musical expressions. He consequently became influential in the emerging Toledo graffiti art revolution under the tag “Swade”.

    Pop up art school Image Courtesy of the Artist

    “I am not a lyricist or a musician or a singer... I am an artist in love with these instances of self expression and choose to dialog through my paintings with others who share this love.”

    Wade continued his art education at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Following a brief stint with an ad agency in graphic design, Wade concentrated more on his work as a fine artist. His style has since evolved into an exploratory freedom reflective of the music that captivates him.

  • Breaking Down Creative Barriers with Zentangle ®!

    Breaking Down Creative Barriers with Zentangle®!

    Certified Zentangle instructor, Jeannie Mahood, talks a bit about this unique method enjoyed all over the world.

    How would you describe Zentangle?

    The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. Almost anyone can use it to create beautiful images. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well being. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over the world, across a wide range of skills, interests and ages. It was created by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts to break down the barriers that people have to being creative, relaxed and focused. Just a few, but excellent, materials and a one-step-at-a-time process are all that's needed!

    zentangle Image courtesy of the Artist

    How did you get involved with and certified to teach Zentangle?

    I got to take a Zentangle workshop with Rick and Maria in 2009. Later that year Joan Payton and I traveled to Rick and Maria's hometown of Whitinsville, MA for the teacher seminar - where we became CZT's (Certified Zentangle Teachers)! We started teaching together about a month later and have taught about 500 students from Baja, Mexico to Nova Scotia, Canada since then!

    zentangle Image Courtesy of the Instructor

    Do have a background in art?

    Yes - although artistic experience is NOT necessary for Zentangle! Joan is always creating something. For years she designed, made and sold jewelry. Now, when she's not doing Zentangle, she designs and makes primitive style hooked rugs.

    I have a BFA in Studio Art, and an MA in art therapy. I used art therapy with children and families for several years, and then worked in graphic design. I've loved drawing and painting since I was a kid, and have added photography and Zentangle to my list of favorite things to do.

    Zentagle Letters Image Courtesy of the Artist

    How did you get involved with teaching at BINDERS Art School?

    I really enjoyed taking Anne Elser's Calligraphy classes at Binders and eventually I got to thinking that it would be a fun place to offer Zentangle.

    We worked with the Education Director and made it happen! Joan and I have really enjoyed the students at Binders (not to mention the fun materials that are right outside the classroom door!).

    Zentangle All Things Are Possible Image Courtesy of the Artist

    What can folks expect from a Zentangle class?

    Joan and I design most of our classes so that a beginner can come and feel comfortable from the start. We ground the students in the basic process of Zentangle first. The process of Zentangle is SO important - it's what makes Zentangle unique and so accessible. But learning the process online or from a book is just not the same as learning in a class from a Certified Zentangle Teacher.

    We always teach some extra tangles (patterns), and then we usually go into the world of "Zentangle Inspired Art" and create something larger, or use color, or work on dark paper, or...  Joan and I have so much fun thinking up new things to teach! Our classes tend to be jam packed because we really want students to get their money's worth. We like to be a little bit silly, too!

  • Marking the Anniversary of Ponce City Market

    On This Day in 1926

    January 4th, 1926 marks a day in Atlanta Retail History.

    On this day, developers broke ground to build the Sears Roebuck building at 675 Ponce de Leon Avenue in Atlanta Georgia.

    Ponce City Market Sears Roebuck Building. Atlanta, GA
    Image found in Public Domain

    Chief architect, George C. Nimmons designed the 2,100,000 square foot building for Sears Roebuck and Company. Sears used the building as a retail store, warehouse and regional office until 1979. At that time the retail store closed but the regional offices continued to operate out of the building until 1987.

    The city of Atlanta bought the building in May 1990 where it became "City Hall East". Housing the police department, an art gallery and for a few years the Southeastern Flower Show.

    The building was closed to the public in 2010. On July 11, 2011 it was purchased by Jamestown, a private-equity group, and is currently being redeveloped as Ponce City Market.

    Ponce City Market

    Ponce City Market is in the heart of historic Atlanta surrounded by the Ole Fourth Ward, Virginia Highland, Poncy Highland and Midtown.

    The mixed-use development will house restaurants, boutiques, offices, residential living, and national and local retail anchors. And that's where we come in!

    BINDERS Art Supplies and Frames is excited to be opening our second Atlanta location in this historic Atlanta landmark. We are currently planning the store's layout and will have much more to share as we getting closer to our grand opening slated for this August.

  • Southern Artwork in a Cozy Studio

    Southern Artwork :: Carolyn Rose Milner

    Artist :: Poet :: Instructor :: SouthernGothic

     

    Tell us about your studio space at the Goat Farm.

    The Goat Farm is the perfect venue for my studio. I am surrounded by all sorts of creative process: painters, printers, dancers, photographers.

    My small space, cozy as it is, is perfect for my work right now - collages based on my drawings and poetry. Since my work is about being southern and the automatic response people have to that, the placement of my studio is ideal.

    Southern Artwork with Carolyn Rose Milner
    Image Courtesy of the Artist

    “My work is about being southern and the automatic response people have to that…”

     

    How would you describe your practice?

    I work in my studio up to 4 hours a day, 5 days a week. Before one piece is done, the next piece is calling to me. Everything is messy around me but at last chaos and clean lines are finally organized on the picture plane. I tend to draw in between solid studio hours - I just cannot help it. Drawing, painting, poetry and all mark making is part of my daily experience.

    Can you tell us about “Smoke Inhalation”? It’s a compelling series.

    Smoke Inhalation was born out of watching my mother blow cigarette smoke out while holding me in her arms. I was fascinated with the idea, even when very little, that this substance went into her and came out different. I thought the clouds coming out of her had words or feelings inside them. When I watch two people companionably smoking together, they combine their smoke and create something interesting to watch in the air, something magic and ethereal, rather like the old black and white movies. Smoke Inhalation is more about relationships between women and what transpires in the spaces between them. Even the singular images I created are looking dead on at the viewer, including you into their smoky suggestions. Incidentally, I have never smoked cigarettes. I just like looking at it.

    What are you working on currently?

    My next body of work is tentatively titled Southern Gothic: Fruits of their Eyes. This is a series of small works on paper, combining my drawings, gouache paintings, Japanese papers, poetry, and clear Xeroxed images. I desire to make them tactile and touchable yet very remote as the context suggests. I made this body of small works in response to my divorce from a thirty year marriage.

    “Experimental Drawing is filled with quiet energy and through it you can learn to never be blocked again artistically.”

     

    What do you hope students will learn in your Experimental Drawing class?

    Experimental Drawing is just wonderful! It unblocks your head and gets your visions humming. It's rather like meditation: it centers and excites your mind and body at the same time. Experimental Drawing is filled with quiet energy and through it you can learn to never be blocked again artistically. You can also discover some things you might have on your mind and be unaware of it.

    What is unique about your Portrait Painting class?

    Portraits can come in many packages and acrylic is a great, versatile medium to use. There are so many options with acrylic, just like there are so many options in portrait painting. Rendering the face will be the strongest focus in the class, but there will also be an understanding that there is a strong spirit within each personal painting that needs to come to the surface. There is always something challenging and familiar when doing a portrait. It's one of the most rewarding of all the arts and can be cherished later, capturing a moment in someone's life.
