 Just to share a little background Atomic Fox was created after many years of appreciating, collecting and selling antiques and unique items. After they bought their 1950's Atomic Ranch (featured in 1954 in Better Homes and Gardens) our passion for the architecture and furniture grew. You can read more on their Atomic Fox fb page.Atomic Fox also posts temping goodies on Instagram, Pinterest and has an online shop on Etsy.

Terry  is also an Auctioneer

Yellow Springs Arts Council: For the Birds Exhibit

Press Release
Bird photography
We have a multi faceted show coming up with photographer Talitha Greene.  Talitha has spent years taking photographs of Birds in the Glen Helen Raptor Center.  She has told me stories about saving a hurt raptor bird herself by throwing a blanket over it and rushing it to the Raptor Center.  You can see her affection for these birds in her portraits of them.  She has learned their stories and what they like and don't like. 
This is a quote from Talitha's artist statement: "I do this because I truly love it. When I am taking photos I forget about everything else.  I've forgotten to eat. I've found myself sitting in the dark as the day turned into night. It is true escapism for me. And I love it."

So for her June YSAC Gallery show she wanted to make it a fundraiser "For The Birds."  
She planned a very complex show- that mixes in 10 volunteers from Glen Helen ( the Raptor Center is part of Glen Helen) many local artists donating bird art, Terry Fox, a local auctioneer, Meadowlark Restaurant, Dino's Cappuccinos, the Jafagirls, a local blues band and YS Arts Council all donating time and work for the birds.

Opening Reception
