Conscious of The Color
Chasing the coat tails of ambulances
Struggling to contain this vessel
Foot to the floor
Accelerating chances of separation
Dying every hour between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Living to let go of the wheel
All signs of life perish in a matter of seconds
The smell of asphalt and smoldering iron linger
Alarm the sirens
Man the Jaws of Life
This forgotten soul will join soon take its place amongst the fallen

Tampa bay area artist, Aurailieus, first burst into the scene when he joined the ArtKasts, an artist collective founded by Amanda Stiles. The ArtKasts featured groundbreaking artists such as Aurailieus , Amanda stiles, Mike Goodwine and “Chainsaw” Chuck Majewski, a group joined as an alliance of emerging artist hell bent on breaking into St. Pete’s art scene, which the group felt was too exclusive to their particular brand of art.
The team banged away, putting on over 14 art shows in one year’s, time-instantly sending these names into the bay area art scene, and for two years running snagged creative loafing’s ” Best of the Bay” award for visual artist, first in 2007 by Amanda Stiles, then in 2008 by Aurailieus himself. The group ultimately disbanded, after the initial need of forming the group was satisfied, and every artist involved became an established artist in the local community. Read the rest of this entry →

The Village Magazine started as a little publication about a few people in the Village of the Arts. In time though, it’s grown into a little publication about people in the region. This change has been a part of our desire to apply our personal values to what we create and how we reach people. We are not just one small Village of a few people in downtown Bradenton, but we are part of a larger community that wants to use it’s creative abilities to improve itself and it’s surroundings. That idea, was never more crystalized than it is in the project I was emailed about recently from a man named Vagaram Choudhary. He was told about The Village Magazine by a friend, and this was an artist in residency program called Sowing Seeds created by the Kaman Art Foundation.
From the Sowing Seeds website:
Sowing Seeds (Beej Bonna)” is an interactive artist’s village residency where a residency is held every year in the month of December for a period of approximately 14 days. This interactive residency sowed the seeds of a highly creative conjunction among the rural and the contemporary artists. This mile-stone project welcomed different art forms from national and international artists and helped in exchanging art and ideas.
“Sowing Seeds” is a project that intends to create dialogues and exchanges amongst artists beyond the national identity and serve as an opportunity for rural artists to meet, share and exchange ideas, visions, and diverse views order to create a deeper understanding on art. It acts as a medium of developing and improving the artistic impressions of experts as well as emerging artists. As an alternative art space in INDIA, “Sowing Seeds” is geared to meet the challenges required to organize such contemporary artist village camp (workshop) within rural areas and give rise to a new era in visual art.
What follows is a documentation of the work they are doing. Enjoy and spread the word to as many people as possible. Thanks for reading.
