Mooresville Artist Guild in Mooresville, NC, Works with The Dale Jr. Foundation to Raise Funds for Mooresville Depot Renovation

May 31, 2013

Two key players in the local community, The Dale Jr. Foundation and the Mooresville Artist Guild, are joining forces to support the renovation of the historic Mooresville Depot in Mooresville, NC, with a unique online fundraising event called the Dale Jr. Picture Mosaic.

The Dale Jr. Picture Mosaic will be a collection of 8,800 images submitted by fans of Earnhardt Jr. Once assembled, the collage will make up an eight foot by six foot mural. When viewed from a distance, the primary image of Earnhardt Jr. becomes visible, while close examination reveals that the image is comprised of numerous smaller photographs.

The donations from the mosaic will be used to support the Mooresville Artist Guild’s project to renovate the Historic Mooresville Depot, better known as “Race City USA” and home to JR Motorsports.

“Since 1863, the Historic Mooresville Depot has been the cornerstone on which the Town of Mooresville was built,” said Leo Gordon, Treasurer of the Guild and Chairperson for the renovation project. “It brought commerce to the area which led to people moving into the area. In 1973, The Depot took a new role when the Town of Mooresville leased the building to the Mooresville Artist Guild who converted part of the building to a Visual Arts Center, thus becoming the cornerstone of art for the region.

“The building needs major repairs and must conform to ADA requirements if we are to meet the growing needs of the Guild and the region. With community leaders like Dale Jr. and The Dale Jr. Foundation adding their support, we can make the Depot something special.”

To become part of the JR Nation history and have your picture included in the Dale Jr. Mosaic, an easy to use, interactive web site has been created at (www.dalejrpicturemosaic.com). The process is simple. For a donation of just $8.80, you can include a photograph of yourself or friends to pay tribute to Earnhardt Jr. for his accomplishments on the track, as an entrepreneur and community leader. These photos, combined with thousands of others will create the completed mural.

Shortly after uploading your photo(s), participants will be incorporated into the online mosaic and mural, and receive a special access code to view their photo.

“The Dale Jr. Picture Mosaic will be unveiled at JR Motorsports in mid-December of this year,” said Lauren Caldwell, Project Manager of The Dale Jr. Foundation.  ”We’ll focus a lot of our social media efforts around it so fans can share in the experience. We are truly excited to help make a difference in our community with the revitalization of the Mooresville Artist Guild.”

Mooresville Artist Guild Holds The Art Forum 2nd Thursday of Each Month at the Depot Art Gallery in Mooresville, NC.

September 20, 2011

Mooresville Artist Guild announces The Art Forum, held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7pm at the Depot Art Gallery, 103 W Center Ave (at the corner of Main and Center) in Mooresville, NC.  There is no charge to attend.

Art Forum is an opportunity for artists, sculptors, photographers and other artists to bring in completed works of art and get the benefit of helpful critique. Artists are asked to do an assignment each month to be analyzed in the following month’s forum. Or artists may choose to bring in work that meets an assignment of their own or even an old piece.  The aim of the forum is to make each participant a better artist in the end.

John Triolo leads the discussion, but keeps it as a freewheeling open dialog among fellow artists. Triolo has been an artist his whole life. He was executing oil paintings at age five. He has worked in almost every media including oils, acrylics, watercolors, scenery for plays, sculpture, stained glass, pottery, photography, film making, film editing, and animation. Triolo has taught at The School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and lectured at Parsons School of Design and Pratt Institute. He’s a graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. His work has been shown in numerous galleries and has been on exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. However, Triolo is most well known as an Art Director and Creative Director in advertising.

During Triolo’s ad career, he has worked with some of the best artists, photographers, and designers in the world. He has done thousands of print ads and hundreds of TV commercials that you have probably seen. His work has won some of advertising’s highest praise. Triolo’s awards include ANDY’s, Clio’s, Cannes Lion’s, and a One Show Silver Pencil. He has also won an Art Director’s Club Gold Medal, the most prestigious award for an Art Director, for his “Bull in the China Shop” TV commercial for Merrill Lynch, and a Silver Medal for the Merrill Lynch TV campaign. Currently, Triolo is retired, but still works in acrylics on canvas as often as he can. He produces about one or two paintings a month and doesn’t want to work any harder than that.

For more information please see (www.MAGart.org) or contact John Triolo by e-mail at (jtriolo@mi-connection.com) or call 704/896-5263.
