Sign Painter Screening, Sept 30, 7PM at SCADshow

SEGD Atlanta in association with SCAD, Savannah College of Art and Design, is proud to present:

Sign Painters, directed by Faythe Levine and Sam Macon

When:  Wednesday, September 30, 7:00 PM
Where:  SCADshow, 173 14th St., Atlanta, GA 30309

We see them almost every day without a second thought. Weathered by time, distinct characteristics shining through, hand-painted signs are a product of a fascinating 150 year-old American history. What was once a common job has now become a highly specialized trade, a unique craft struggling with technological advances. Sign Painters, directed by Faythe Levine & Sam Macon, stylistically explores this unacknowledged art form through anecdotal accounts from artists across the country including Ira Coyne, Bob Dewhurst, Keith Knecht, Norma Jeane Maloney and Stephen Powers. These vanguards of unseen originality are leading a renaissance with a keen creative purpose and exemplify the working class American success story. Sign Painters celebrates those keeping the tradition intact with a bespoke approach and appreciation for a balance between art and commerce.

Kevin, Kelley and Scott

Please join Kevin and I in welcoming Kelley as a co-chair of SEGD CLT! 


Kelley will be working with us out of the Raleigh / Durham area. We're excited to have her there as we feel it's an important spot for our future growth as an organization. 

For those of you that haven't met her yet, Kelley is an environmental graphic designer (currently) in Charlotte by way of the Midwest, with a background in both interior architecture and graphic design. She has been helping Kevin and I over the last months with events so this should be a very smooth transition for her!

Our goal is the eventual creation of a SEGD RDU chapter so Kelley will be "probing" the area for interest as well as new members and partners. If you're local to the RDU area, please reach out to Kelley in the coming months as she'll be making the move from Charlotte soon!

Kevin Kern & Scott Muller

We had a great event at the new BB&T Ballpark!  Kevin Kern (505 Design) provided us with a tour of the facility and an overview of the newly installed signage and graphics, ranging from 5' tall identity lettering to custom hand-painted graphics and banners.  After our tour of the facility our group had an area reserved where we could have dinner and drinks while watching the Charlotte Knights beat the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs!

It was a beautiful night with about 24 attendees!  Thanks to all for coming and to SignArt for helping with the sponsorship!

 

Take a look at these vintage photos of signs in Washington D.C. during the 60's!
