Hands On Atlanta is a non-profit organization that helps individuals, families and corporate and community groups find flexible volunteer opportunities at more than 400 service organizations and schools.
Hands On Atlanta, is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a special event June 19, at the DeFoor Centre. To commemorate the occasion, Hands On Atlanta is asking artists to contribute artwork inspired by the handprint in its logo. There are no rules about the art – it could be a painting, sculpture etc. The artwork will be displayed at the event and used in an auction to raise funds for Hands On Atlanta.
For the artist -- two tickets the event and a receipt for a tax deductible contribution. The event includes a birthday cake decorating contest from 2 – 5 and a gala birthday bash that starts at 7. Participating artists can come to the entire event or any portion.
Please contact me if you would like to participate: Ray Harbour, firstname.lastname@example.org, 404 547 711, Ray Harbour on Facebook. I need an artist statement or bio and description of the artwork by June 14. The artwork needs to be at the Defoor Centre by Wednesday, June 16. We expect a couple hundred people to attend the event.

On May 16 at 1:30PM the Defoor Centre will be hosting a show for Ray Harbour and Shijun Munns for their unique pieces of work:
Soul Visions will be a month long show for local Atlanta artists: Ray Harbour and Shijun Munns - two very innovative artists that take viewers on their life journey through their native cultures.
Healing of Mother Earth, humanitarian efforts, community building, and social concerns are integral to Ray’s offering as an artist. She is committed to participating in the great journey of healing and transformation. Through art and writing, Ray discovers her inner truths and revelations about the outer world. She shares her journey, fears, wounds, struggles, joys, and learnings in a stream of consciousness style through images and words.
Shijun cares about everything that could touch off an old days feelings; ancient poetry with implied meaning, ancient pottery with rough and simple design, flying faeries on the ancient silk road. Indeed, Shijun seems to look back into space-time while her paintings spring forward into our time to bring us images of deep and profound souls glimmering in soft, golden light.
So come spend this special Sunday afternoon at the Defoor Centre for an unforgettable journey!
