About the artists:

Shawnshawn: revolutionary art since 1993
This artist has 3 distinct styles: Architectural Abstraction, Metal Mayhem and Political Pop. In Architectural Abstraction he explores city skylines and patterns emerging in strict 30, 60 and 90 degrees angles. In Metal Mayhem, he explores abstract cityscapes via all metal tools in acrylic paint. In Political Pop, he reprocesses commercials and pop films into subversive themes that underlie the truth of the world at the deepest levels. This is Art of the Real. Website:

Ruth Carroll studies included life drawing and portraiture, watercolor and bronze sculpture. She spent ten years doing commercial art for the amusement park industry, carving and as well as painting. Her work is all over the world. For the past seven years Ruth has been focusing on painting with oils on canvas and encaustic on panels. She is committed to paint what inspires her. Her favorite subjects include landscape, still life and figurative work. She enjoy's getting outdoors to paint in plein air and also working in her studio.

Sylvester Guard takes street art and the acid-washed intensity of the 90’s into a package that is as colorful as it is provocative. In a clever series of prints; Guard takes inspiration from superheroes by superimposing their masks on pug faces. He has displayed at Art Attacks SF! And the SF Live Worms Gallery, and continues to impress as he won a contest to place a mural on the corner of Haight & Fillmore. An accomplished muralist, Guard has collaborative and individual works on display in restaurants and on the streets of San Francisco.

James Gayles is an Emmy Award winning artist based in Oakland, California. James has won public art commissions from cities across the US and Asia. He is very committed to cultivating artists and sharing his work in the Bay Area where he has lived for the last 20 years. Gayles is a two-time winner of Art Direction Magazine’s Creativity Award, one for the NewsCenter 4 logo redesign, and the other for an editorial illustration for the New York Times. James has illustrated for McGraw-Hill, Random House, Essence Magazine, Black Enterprise Magazine, as well as several advertising agencies on both the East and West coasts. (paraphrased from

Her background includes seven years of financial institutions/banking experience in being result oriented with financial advice, technical support and customer service. Organized and self-motivated with exceptional research and qualitative abilities. Highly analytical, results-driven who works quickly and accurately under tight deadlines. (Pulled from LinkedIn)

John Chui was born in China, moved to Hong Kong and started doodling on textbooks, hanging out on the Colony's delightful tropical beaches, and listening to rock and roll for spiritual initiations. Upon moving to the USA, (he) worked (his) way through a succession of painting styles before developing a unique figurative expressionism with subject matter that reflected my own spiritual evolution. In the beginning of the digital revolution, (he) mastered many digital design tools, and then eventually received an international grand prize for 3-D graphics at the annual Seybold Convention. Now (he’s) just chasing the light between the four corners. I paint for no one and without a purpose… (paraphrased from

Juneteenth, June 19, 2015, Celebrating 150 Years

Atlanta, Georgia – Midsouth MKT&PR in collaboration with Georgia Soul Hospitality & Tourism, Fidelity Rose Mgmt, GlamLyfe Media, Come Clean Entertainment, and the Georgia Chapter of NAHEMP is seeking your support as we organize and plan for Juneteenth 2015.  

Juneteenth History:  Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States.  Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers landed in Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free.  The reactions to this profound news ranged from pure shock to immediate jubilation.  Recounting the memories of that great day in June of 1865 and its festivities would serve as motivation for the celebration.  June 19th is now coined "Juneteenth" and celebrated across the world.   The Juneteenth celebration is a time for reassuring each other, for praying and gatherings with family and friends.  Certain foods are popular and subsequently synonymous with Juneteenth celebrations such asstrawberry soda-pop and BBQ to share in the spirit and aromas that our ancestors – the barbecue pit is often established as the center of attention at Juneteenth celebrations.  Food was abundant because everyone prepared a special dish.  Dress was also an important element in early Juneteenth customs.  For decades these annual celebrations have flourished, growing continuously each passing year with as many as 20,000 African Americans during the course of a week, making the celebration one of the largest in black history.

          Today, Juneteenth is enjoying a phenomenal growth rate within communities and organizations throughout the country.  The Juneteenth mission is to promote and cultivate knowledge and appreciation of African American history and culture.  Juneteenth today, celebrates African American freedom and achievement, while encouraging continuous self-development and respect for all cultures.  As it takes on a more national, symbolic and even global perspective, the future of Juneteenth looks bright as the number of cities and states creating Juneteenth committees continues to increase.  Getting involved and supporting Juneteenth celebrations creates new bonds of friendship and understanding among us.  For more information on Juneteenth and its History please contact: Clifford Robinson 504.644.4691   




How to Celebrate:

We are planning to celebrate Juneteenth by hosting a Feed the Hungry Sack Lunch Event,  BBQ Cookout, Celebrity Ball Games and Tournaments, Car and Bike Show, Miss Juneteenth contests, Parades, Drill Teams, Battle of the Bands, Kids Play Zone. Cooking Competitions, Fundraisers, Community Rally’s, Health Pamphlets, and  a host of Private Parties are just a few of the typical Juneteenth activities going down in Atlanta, Georgia.  Juneteenth almost always focuses on education and self improvement among all communities so, we will have Guest speakers and Community Leaders along with us to hit the streets and get hands on in the City by picking up trash and helping the Homeless. Live music and entertainment is also one of the event highlights of Juneteenth, so each day will feature a Sound Stage to allow for various artists performances, guest speakers, and panelists.  Prayer services are also a major part of these celebrations, so the weekend will come to a close with a Contemporary Gospel and Praise Event.


In many cities, tens of thousands turn out to for both outdoor and indoor events.  This is the perfect celebration to get the youth and community involved.  We have established a committee to assist in the planning   of this year’s Juneteenth Celebrations.  The Georgia Chapter National Association of Hospitality, Entertainment, and Music Professionals also known as (NAHEMP) is looking for individuals to help make this event a success.  It’s very important for Local businesses and city government to come onboard as supports and sponsors to keep costs low (or free) for attendees.
