The Atlanta Folk Art Festival, now in its 13th year, is probably the largest and most distinguished self-taught exhibit in the world, hosting 90 galleries and artists and attracting more than 12,000 visitors annually.

Housed in Atlanta Trade Center – 80,000 square feet, the aisles wide, cool and breezy in spite of crowds moving about the towering displays – painting, sculpture, fabric art, pottery, quilts – multicultural and mixed media – prices range from 5 bucks to 5 figures. At many booths the artists themselves are present, working while viewers gather around. (more…)

“Violette Verdy’s Inoui Rossini at Atlanta Ballet,” Dance Magazine, April 2006

Dance Magazine April 2006

Dance Magazine April 2006


Violette Verdy is in love – with “the tenderness in the European character,” she says, “tenderness about life, food, children and the arts.” Verdy’s neoclassical piece, Inoui Rossini, meaning ‘Extraordinary’ and set to Rossini’s evocative music, draws upon this culture. “So much of my career has centered on teaching. I find my choreography seems naturally to be about educating dancers in what a disciplined body can suggest, and audiences in how ballet transforms the body into an articulate instrument. The Atlanta company dancers are receptive, generous. They can do extraordinary things. I had to show off their talents.”

Currently a Distinguished Professor of Ballet at Indiana University, Verdy is a retired NYCB principal, and has held artistic directorships for the Paris Opera and Boston Ballet companies. – Colleen M. Payton

But here’s a word to the wise: if you seen one, you have NOT see them all. Each has a unique personality. (more…)
