Founded in 2008, BURNAWAY is an Atlanta-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide coverage of the arts in and from Atlanta and the South, to support the vibrant creative communities in our region, to increase national recognition of our region’s artists and organizations, and to foster new voices for the arts. We fulfill this mission through our online arts publication, our Art Writers Mentorship Program, the Atlanta Art Guide, writing workshops, an annual print publication, and public talks.

BURNAWAY recognizes the importance that writers and thinkers play in supporting artist communities to promote, challenge, and propel them forward. Our editorial and programmatic content strives to provide coverage that reflects the geographic, demographic, and artistic diversity of the region. BURNAWAY exists to continue the established tradition of art criticism and uphold its highest ethical and professional standards, while also exploring the potential of new media and providing a fresh identity and perspective for arts dialogue today.

Through reviews, features, interviews, and audio and video content, BURNAWAY attempts to respond to the famous challenge issued by William Faulkner:
So vast, so limitless in capacity is man’s imagination to disperse and burn away the rubble-dross of fact and probability, leaving only truth and dream. (Requiem for a Nun, 1951)
To “disperse and burn away”—a statement about the nature of creativity that compels us to look beyond what merely is and envision what could be.

January 15, 2017 Reception for Teisha Holloway's Winter Residency Exhibition at The Bascom

Teisha Holloway/ Courtesy of the Artist

“I am interested in art that focuses mostly around nature and technology and how we effect and are effected by interaction or a lack of interaction with them. I like to start with an idea and let the material and the process determine the outcome. I make art that is more conceptual, that provokes the viewer to engage with the piece.”  - Teisha Holloway (BFA candidate at Clemson University)

Reception: January 15, 5 - 7 pm

Building on last year’s successful Winter Resident Artist Program (WRAP), The Bascom will provide an opportunity for a student enrolled in a degree-seeking art program in the southeastern United States to exhibit a body of work made at The Bascom during winter break. 

323 Franklin Road
Highlands, NC 28741
