    (All Black! All News! All You!)


    This segment is Art and Social Justice Issues, a combination some listeners might not be aware of. My goal is to connect you to social justice issues through art. 


    On today's show, Mixing Art and Activism. What it is like to do both?, we will talking with a long time North Lawndale resident who is exactly that, an artist and activist.


    Paul Ramey, former resident of North Lawndale, tells what his current art show is about, what his most recent activism is- the Peace Walk he was on today.  We will ask Paul how he mixes art-making & activism. He will also introduce his idea for a plan he has to begin a non-profit organization to feed and clothe homeless individuals. Paul Ramey grew up in North Lawndale and is now an artist and activist. You can see art and activist in any of his works. 


    Thank you for listening to Art and Social Justice Issues. I'm Dianna Long and I am about connecting people to social justice issues through art.

    Winners! 2015 "Best Art Fairs in America" Survey

    in Business

    ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 3rd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. Our survey is the only national online look at the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities.


    We asked our mailing list of over 50,000 art fair patrons what was the best art fair in the country and had an amazing nationwide response. Nearly 90% of the respondents completed the lengthy 25 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing. 


    Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them. Discover their choices for the best regional fairs, best urban fair, best small market show and the best cities for art fairs.


    We'll share the survey answers on:



    what makes a show "Best"
    why people say they attend an art fair
    why they don't attend shows they used to love
    suggestions for show organizers


    Lynn Smith, vice chair of the Old Town Art Fair in Chicago, will give her insights on how the fair garners so much enthusiasm throughout the greater metropolitan area, making it a "must attend" event. Art buyers from Florida and Ohio will also join us to tell us why they attend art fairs and buy art.


    ArtFairCalendar.com's mission is to promote the American tradition of art fairs by showcasing events where art collectors find hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind fine work and encourage the interaction of client and creator.

    Living Master Artist Virgil Elliott on Art from the Renaissance to the Present

    in Art

    What does it take to make art now at the level of Renaissance Art? Why is it important to do so? Join us as artist Virgil Elliott talks about painting, drawing, music, technique, and teaching.


    Painter/writer Virgil Elliott (born 1944) is best known as the author of the book, Traditional Oil Painting: advanced techniques and concepts from the Renaissance to the present, published in 2007 by Watson-Guptill Publications. Acknowledged as a Living Master by the Art Renewal Center, among the many honors and awards he has received over the years, Virgil is widely recognized as an expert on historic oil painting techniques and oil painting materials of the past and present.  He has written and published articles on the working methods and/or lives of Rembrandt, Titian, Frans Hals, Artemisia Gentileschi, and the 19th Century French artist William Bouguereau, among other things. He taught oil painting at the College of Marin, in Marin County, California for a few years, and has taught privately since 1982. 


    He has been an active participant/member of ASTM International’s Subcommittee on Artists’ Paints and Materials since 1997, which experience has broadened his knowledge of artists’ materials considerably and has made him the acquaintance of many experts in the field, including top-level conservation scientists from major museums, from whom he says he has learned a great deal over the years.


    Virgil Elliott keeps a studio in California’s Wine Country, where he paints, teaches and writes, and lives with his wife, singer/actress Annie Lore.  From time to time he has “moonlighted” as a musician, playing guitar and Renaissance lute, both as a solo instrumentalist and occasionally as accompanist to various vocalists. He feels that music and visual art complement one another.
