0601 ad Pamela Williams0601 ad Pamela Williams NOTE FROM THE EDITOR: We have celebrated some very special days this month and I felt it quite appropriate to celebrate "National Camera Day"! After all, we are a group of art lovers and photographers and who doesn't have some type of camera to use? Whether it's your smart phone or a DSLR almost everyone has access to a camera these days. It just occurred to me that I still have my Kodak Instant polaroid camera - I wonder if I can still buy film for it? That would make for an interesting photo experiment one of these days.....maybe even on #NationalCameraDay!

The ARt diSTriCt continues to grow and the virtual streets are ever expanding. It remains a hub of activity for its members to connect with art lovers from around the world. The mission here at the magazine is simple: To share with you "the Art Lover" some one-on-one interviews, showcase artists, keep you informed on events, news, promotions and CELEBRATE the creative arts! This month we spotlight photographer Anda Gheorghiu from the Bucharest, Romania who states, "... Whenever I paint I feel fantastic, it definitely is a form of therapy."  Let's take a deep breath now, exhale, relax and let's start creating!

Best ShotBest Shot

Whoever you are, or where ever you are, stop what you are doing and celebrate by taking your favorite camera out for a walk and snapping off a few photos. Whatever kind of camera you have… it doesn’t matter. Go celebrate! Click-Snap-Smile!

On National Camera Day, celebrate the marvolous invention of this wonderful gadget..... the CAMERA and its evolution over the last few decades. Just imagine the treasure trove of priceless photographs that have been developed, stored and shared. Memories or glimpses of events, people or places- everything would have lost forever in the time machine but for the camera. George Eastman, popularly known as “The Father of Photography,” popularized camera to the masses around the world.

ARTIST SPOTLIGHT - Anda Gheorghiu 

Anda Gheorghiu, RomaniaAnda Gheorghiu, Romania Location : Bucharest, Romania

What's your story? Please introduce yourself

Since childhood, drawing and painting have been my favorite pastime. However, I started more seriously to focus on art after the age of 43, after achieving almost everything in my academic career.  I work as an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Management, within the National University of Political Studies and Public Administration in Bucharest.  Since 2012 I started liberal Art studies supervised by prof. V. Antonovici (Military Club in Bucharest) and prof.R. Scutaru. Exhibitions in Romania and Italy.

What does "being creative" mean to you? 0303

Although painting is more a Violin d' Ingres for me, being creative means to exploit at maximum my imagination, for honoring life and divinity in the most diverse and unexpected forms. Whenever I paint I feel fantastic, definitely it is a form of therapy.

What’s your main artistic medium? *

acrylic, oil, sometimes watercolor

Can you describe the time when you first realized that creating was something you absolutely had to do?

After my first exhibition, seeing the reaction and happiness of the visitors, I realized that I absolutely have to continue.

What inspires you?

I  am inspired by the universe, celestial objects, stars, primordial ocean, lost civilizations, but also by terrestrial subjects- landscapes, fruits, birds.  Some of the painters that I admire the most are: Raphael, Michelangelo, Dali, Magritte.

0606 Do you have a specialty? 

Not really, I have tried to approach many themes, styles and mediums, and perhaps  I still have to concentrate on defining my own style.

Which creative medium would you love to pursue but haven’t yet?

Pastel

What are you trying to communicate with your art?

I try to create a surreal universe,  colorful, vibrant and expressing the joy of living.

0202 What kind of equipment/tools do you use?

Mostly canvas and acrylics, but sometimes I use glass, wood, tempera, etc.  I have also started to paint Orthodox icons.

What’s your favorite thing you’ve ever created?

A marine landscape, with a turquoise sea, real sand sticked on canvas and shells levitating in the air

What advice do you have for budding artists and photographers?

Just follow your heart, imagination and never give up if the results do not always meet your expectations

What is #1 on your Bucket List?

Write a book on Art-therapy

Arts district

**From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An arts district is a demarcated urban area, usually on the periphery of a city center, intended to create a 'critical mass' of places of cultural consumption - such as art galleriesdance clubstheatresart cinemas, music venues, and public squares for performances. Such an area is usually encouraged by public policy-making and planning, but sometimes occurs spontaneously. It is associated with allied service-industry jobs like cafes, printers, fashion outlets, restaurants, and a variety of 'discreet services' (see the back-page small-ads of almost any cultural magazine).
