Support ArtVoiceWV

It is amazing how quickly this year has gone by. It’s been a busy and productive one for us. We’ve met talented and passionate people with an abundance of joy in the works they create. The beauty they share brings tranquility and inspiration to us all.

We are seeking your support for another season of ArtVoiceWV. It is our goal to continue to document these artists and their talents, their philosophies. Last year, with your financial help, we raised funds to produce eleven short documentaries about West Virginia’s creative arts community. The series won two International Telly Awards. In addition, two of our shorts were accepted into film festivals – one in West Virginia (we won in the Best Documentary short/Appalachian Filmmaker category); the other in Cardiff, Wales.

We hope that you have approved our efforts, and enjoyed the array of artists that we have portrayed. In the year to come, we anticipate continuing and expanding our mission as we “curate Appalachia artfully.” Won’t you join us?

You can contribute directly to 78 Degrees West Inc via check or cash, saving us 7.2% in processing fees.

If you prefer using a credit card, you can contribute online through our IndieGogo Campaign site – http://igg.me/at/artvoicewv. The campaign is open to accept new contributions.

Our goal is to raise an additional $5,400 allowing us to travel West Virginia as we locate rural and urban artists. And remember, your contribution is fully tax deductible.

Thank you for your continued support of ArtVoiceWV and the artists we document.

Kim Potter

We met Kim about four years ago during a studio tour of Berkeley Springs artists. Marla really liked his coats and jackets. A couple of years later we asked him about having us produce a short about him for ArtVoiceWV. He politely declined, a combination of modesty and nervousness. This past Spring, we took up the studio tour again and met up with Kim. He blurted out that he thought he was ready for us to profile him.

Surprised and happy we set up time to visit his studio with our cameras. Though he was still nervous about the interview, we all had an enjoyable time. Learn more about Kim at http://www.kimpotter.com/

ArtVoiceWV: Celebrating the Artists

Ever wonder what a half-hour program might look like? Well, here is an example we created for West Virginia Public Broadcasting and its The West Virginia Channel.

In this program, we celebrate five talented artists: printmake/painter Susan Carney, sculptor Massimo Righini, musician Billy Thompson, printmaker Rhonda J Smith, and writer Jeanne Mozier.
Music credits: Dan Phillipson (Premiumbeat.com), Gyasi Heus, Blake Wynia, and Billy Thompson.

Cardiff Mini Film Festival

Oh yeah. Our documentary short about seth. has been short listed in the Cardiff Mini Film Festival. “At Once, Silly and Profound” will be shown at the Festival on June 26 in the Factual category. A panel of 13 judges will select the winners at that time. So let’s keep our fingers crossed.crestblack2016

Two ArtVoiceWV films have been selected as finalists in the 2nd Annual Plum Tuckered Film Festival.

The Creator of Things, a film about Nathan Baker; and A Fascination with Change, a Telly Award winning film about Susan Carney, will be presented during the festival on April 23 in Davis, WV>

About the Festival: “We are excited to be an international film festival, a home for creative, independent short film from around the world. But – there’s no doubt – we sprouted in Tucker. One of our primary goals is to shine a spotlight on the films and filmmakers of our area. We are also seeking to highlight films from the greater Appalachian region in order to showcase the depth of talent and creativity residing within these mountains.” Learn more at http://www.plumtuckeredfilmfestival.org/2016/.
