Savannah Association for the Blind, Inc. presents An ART SHOW and GALA

 

Angela was showing in the I Have Marks to Make show, and was looking at her work hanging on the wall. She heard someones nurse reminding them not to touch the artwork. When Angela heard this she turned around, and said “Well, I’m the artist, I don’t mind if she touches my work.” Angela then watched , and listened. She was astounded as she watched the persons hand moving over her artwork, while her nurse told her what colors were in the work. Everyone deserves to be able to see works, and if they can’t why not help them? This idea just sat there for awhile, but came to life with Touch and See (a feel for the arts). Angela worked with The Savannah Association for the Blind, Inc., and Access Mental Health in putting this event together. Unfortunately a copy of that banner is not available.

Later this event was moved, and taken over by The Savannah Association for Blind and low vision. That is exactly how Angela likes it. You don’t need to be in the spotlight to help. Sometimes a simple idea can capture hearts, and make the world a little bit of a better place. She is beyond happy knowing that this idea helps others in need, and it came from her.

About Angela

Angela Taylor began working in the arts at 15yrs old volunteering in community theatre. She took voice lessons from Savannah, GA. actor/ voice professional Les Taylor. The artists that she worked with and met inspire her even today. Due to her health, she turned to visual arts in 2004. She had her first show "TurnOfMind" with artist Mary Atkins in Savannah, GA. Painting became very therapeutic for her. Painting and giving it away, helped her learn to let go. Helping others gives her so much satisfaction, that it helps her in return. Over the years she has donated art to the United Way, Tybee Arts Association, Interfaith Hospitality Network, The American Legion Auxiliary, The Savannah Children’s Theatre, American Diabetes Association, Hospice, Young Survival Coalition and many more! She became a contributing writer and editor for ACEO Magazine on July1st of 2007. She had her first solo show held at the Jewish Educational Alliance in on Feb 4-29th of 2008. Seeing how little this inspired others, she turned back to donating and created “Touch and See” (a feel for the arts) in 2010. She also owned ACEO Magazine by this time and decided to give others the opportunity to feel the reward found from giving to others around the globe as well. Having been bothered by the feud between ATC artists and ACEO artists, Angela created Art Cards United in March 2014. Giving each artist the opportunity to choose for themselves if they trade or sell and how much they sell for. While giving them the chance to donate to help others as she does. AngelasArtArea is Angelas first love. Music and creating are what drives her to go on. Helping her to create awareness, pay medical bills and show the world anything is possible. Don't give up! When her health is in need of a break, she has ArtCardsUnited to work on. ArtCardsUnited is Angela's second love, giving others the opportunity to create awareness and help as she does with AngelasArtArea. You can learn more about Angela at: www.angelasartarea.com
