Tiny Tour of Two Doomed to Demoliion 1858 and 1950 - Still Here as of Tuesday

This is no fun. I take little detours to visit these, the maps are at the bottom of this post. They are still with us as of October 6, 2015.
Will they still be there tomorrow?  I'm paying them a little respect before they are gone.

I let folks know on Facebook and Instagram. Here are links to my pictures and videos for the record.

1385 Middlesex Avenue 30306 in Morningside. Built 1858. Moved from Woodville, Georgia to Atlanta in 1985.

The "difference" makes it a Morningside landmark that few outsiders have seen.

Maybe it still has a chance, maybe just some of the parts.

True Deliverance Church 1433 Watson Street, Atlanta in the Edgewood neighborhood. 1950 per Dekalb County property tax records.

It's one of 4 churches within a few blocks. This one is right on the street, pointed sideways, clinging to a hillside. Quite a sight in the winter from the valley to the east, a tributary Sugar Creek. I'm not sure if it will still be here when the leaves fall.

Notch8 and Atlanta Contemporary: Two Atlanta Galleries on the Tracks

I think art is an "indicator species"  and indications are pretty good around here: A mature thriving gallery on the near west side and brand new soon to be thriving gallery in south Atlanta. Parts of the same scene I think.

The Atlanta Contemporary's long running "Art Party" fundraiser was on August 29.

Notch8 Gallery's second exhibition ever was on September 11. (You really have to be on Facebook to follow art around here.)

You probably haven't been to either: Great spaces all done up for shows. So...

I did a Terry's Tiny Art Show Video for each. I love they way they play together with 500 year old polyphony and modern ambient.

They play one after the other. You can just listen while you are doing email.

Great Space! Bravo Sharon Dennehy.

Terry's Tiny Tips for Art Shows.

1. Just go. They really appreciate your interest.
2. Don't try to "get" anything.
3. Enjoy the people. Most don't "get it" any better than you. Talk to them. Most are just as shy as you are.
4. Galleries have their own regulars who only see each other at shows. They are the ones talking in groups, nice folks who will know the answers to your questions, who can point out the artists.
5. Admire the craftsmanship even if you don't enjoy the art.
6. Look at everything 3 times. It's not always love at first sight. Imagine them in your place.
7. Be grateful if you find something you like or affects you.
8. Terry's special tip: Don't hog the artists. Help them meet everybody.

This one by Josh Feigert "got me" from across the room. I haven't the slightest idea why. I could totally imagine this at my house. I wonder if I'd like it as much the second time.

Your results may vary.
