Photos of Karen people from the Thailand Burma border
Mingei World Arts
Sunday, June 8
in refugee camps along the Thailand -Burma border in 2005.
The Karen, an ethnic minority group which comprises 1 in 7 of the Burmese population, has been fighting for independence from Burma for more than 50 years. As the fighting has intensified in the last 20 years, many Karen have fled to refugee camps in Thailand and hundreds of thousands more are displaced within Burma. Some Karen refugees are now being resettled in the metro-Atlanta area.
Gregory Scarborough is the founder and director of Cultural Cornerstones, an organization based in Decatur, Georgia which focuses on protecting cultural rights and cultural heritage for refugees and internally displaced peoples in emergency -affected communities. For the past eight years, he has worked extensively with Gypsy populations in Macedonia, with Kurds in Turkish Kurdistan and along the Thailand Burma border documenting life, musical traditions, and the struggle of these people against cultural assimilation and human rights abuses. This work has resulted in two collections of recordings of traditional music, “The Shutka Music Project,” (2001) and “Chave Mini, You Are My Eyes: Songs from Turkish Kurdistan” (Cultural Cornerstones, 2002). Both of these are available for sale at Mingei World Arts.
In 2005, Cultural Cornerstones began working with Karen refugees who have fled from Burma into refugee camps in Thailand to facilitate the protection of their cultural heritage and cultural rights. While in the camps Cultural Cornerstones worked with youth and elders to record a CD of music in Mae La and Umphiem Mai camps which demonstrates the flourishing of their traditions and also tells the story of their struggle through new musical compositions. Gregory Scarborough's report and photo essay from this mission was published in the Fall issue of Cultural Survival.
Cultural Cornerstones is now working to raise money to print a CD of Karen music Greg has recorded along the border. We will be playing this music on June 8, and showing authentic Karen instruments. 10% of all sales that day will go to Cultural Cornerstones.

The Adolescence series by Atlanta artist Rose M Barron, is a photographic study of youth as complex and engaging human beings. Ms Barron says, “This body of work focuses on gend er roles, behavior, and identity. Think back to adolescence and the images in your mind of what you thought you and your friends were like, this series captures the reality of the subtleness of this beautiful experience. Youth can be a time of soul searching for identity while also being consumed with their own image. It is a time of prime physical condition and vitality juxtaposed with feelings of uncertainty about self. My work presents the complexity of young people and encourages the viewer to engage in in their complex and engaging humanity.'
Opening reception featuring Atlanta resident and artist Rose M Barron, Friday May 23 from 7pm until 10pm.Refreshments will be served. Music entertainment will be provided. Everyone is welcome.

The show concept began after Cooper nearly lost an eye in the summer of '07. The paintings are a celebration of vision and the visual symbology flags connote � utilizing color, composition and references to battles and independence. The flags were designed as gifts to friends locally and internationally as part of the project.
Local seamsters and seamstresses formed an ad hoc "Betsy Ross Society" to sew remnant fabrics together and contribute in their own personal ways to Cooper's textile designs for "Flagship Mark."

The 86th Annual Art Directors Club (ADC) Awards Exhibition will be the debut exhibit at the Gallery at The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur on January 15. The exhibit will be on view through February 12. A reception will be held from 5 to 7 pm on Friday, February 8, as part of the quarterly Decatur ArtWalk. The reception and exhibit are open to the public at no charge.
Each year the Art Directors Club sends its International Annual Awards Exhibition on a worldwide tour. From New York to Sao Paolo, London to Beijing – and Atlanta, the exhibition of gold, silver, and distinctive merit winners are viewed by thousands.
This fascinating annual exhibit shows the work of gold and silver medalists in the oldest and largest international awards competition in the United States. Initiated in 1920, The Art Directors Club Annual Awards Exhibition celebrates the best work in advertising, interactive media, graphic design, illustration, and photography. This year, the top Gold Cube medalist in advertising was TBWAChiatDay for Skittles candy, and the Gold Cube medalist in Interactive Media is R/GA for the Nike + campaign. Five finalists in the Hybrid category were honored for the year’s most innovative, ground-breaking work. The newest category was the Corbis Creativity for Social Justice Award, presented to the top-scoring professional entry produced on a pro bono basis. The award went to The Walker Agency of Zurich, Switzerland, for its pro bono work on Amnesty International, and to a Pratt Institute student in New York for her project for Trees New York, a New York City-based not-for-profit environmental group.
The exhibit will be in The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur Gallery, One West Court Square, Suite 110, Decatur, GA 30030. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday, 9 am – 7 pm; Friday from 9 am to 5 pm (except on February 8), and Saturday from 9 am to 3 pm.
