Robinson Realty Group To Participate In MainX24 Celebration With Artist Showcase

Monday, November 28, 2016

Robinson Realty Group, A Southside real estate brokerage, at 601 East Main Street, is presenting Dianne Blankenbaker and Lisa Seago in an artist showcase on Saturday, from 1-4 p.m., as part of the MainX24 celebration.

Featured artists include photographer, Dianne Blankenbaker, plus landscape, figurative and commissioned portraiture artist, Lisa Seago.

Ms. Blankenbaker is a local photographer, photography instructor and outdoor enthusiast. Her editorial work has been published in the Hamilton County Herald. Her commercial work ranges from product to architectural photography, but her passion is nature and landscape photography—an example of which was featured on the cover of Outside Magazine highlighting Chattanooga as America's best outdoor city.

Ms. Seago was born in McComb, Ms., and received a BA in interior design from Mississippi College. For many years she ran an interior design and European antique business near New Orleans, but decided to make creating art her full-time endeavor in 2006. Objects old and new, people, the land, the play of light and shadow compel her to paint. Her genres are varied—landscape, still life, figurative and commissioned portraiture. Although primarily a representational artist, her interpretations of subject, mood, light and color range from realism to impressionist. A Chattanooga-based, award-winning artist, Lisa strives to capture her perception of a subject’s essence with paint and canvas that pushes her artistic growth.

Both artists’ work is available for purchase on Saturday.

MAINx24 is a 24-hour long festival of people in the streets, artist showcases and amazing food. It’s parades, pancakes, art, small shops, restaurants, artisans, poetry, caroling, music, dancing, food and fun—all in celebration of Main Street and the surrounding Southside. Held the first Saturday in December, since 2007, the 24-hour festival is comprised of over one-hundred events taking place throughout the day and night, and is organized completely by residents, merchants, artists, and friends of the Southside community.

It tells about a man who walks up to a young boy on a beach, this just after a strong storm had washed hundreds of helpless starfish onto the shore. The boy was picking up the stranded starfish and, one at a time, ... (click for more)
