History of EatingArt
|Once upon a time Terrance began a newsletter that was
mailed to numerous artists and organizations around the Adirondack North
Country, and because he spoke his mind in this newsletter he deemed that
it might be a good idea to reserve an alias name for himself. And
so the Eating Art Newsletter was by O.D.Night.
The name Eating Art comes from a statement made by Salvador Dali, "Beauty will always be edible, or there will be no such thing as beauty". It seemed to Terrance that the life he and Sue were living was one full of beauty and creativity and so he took notice to live with the intent of knowing moment to moment that beauty was here and how important it was to digest some everyday.
The original copies that were mailed out can be read here.
Terrance began a family web site and discovered the URL EatingArt was available and so this became the name of his personal and family web site. I say personal and family because the site had photos from family trips but also adventures in the mountains that Terrance went on and his personal writings, including the original Eating Art newsletters.
Terrance began his own business web site YoungsGallery in 1998 and wanted to include an on line magazine with the site. That is how Mountain Drum E-Maga-Zine came about. Quite a bit of this magazine can still be archived through EatingArt.
Mountain Drum also became the name of the percussion group that Sue and he are in, along with Seth Rosenblum and Sue Ann Caron.
YoungsGallery web site was and is a big hit and Terrance was learning much about web design and selling on the web. Soon friends were asking about having him build them web sites and this is how YoungsWebDesign began in 2002.
The Mountain Drum E-Maga-Zine kept falling further and further behind every month and Terrance decided to make it a quarterly instead of monthly. In the meantime EatingArt didn't fall behind, it was totally neglected and Terrance found that he was putting more and more of his personal life into the Mountain Drum magazine anyway and there was nothing left over to put into the family site. So EatingArt.Com left the web in 2003.
Terrance was waiting for time to complete the mammoth project of making Eating Art the on line magazine of his business and personal life. This process will probably take three months and should be completed by June 20th 2004.
In the meantime Eating Art exists again and is considered under construction while the site is fine tuned.
Terrance has been studying Flash Animation and soon this site will reflect some of what he has learned.
Eating Art will also combine the old What's New into this quarterly E-zine.
Thanks for visiting our on-line magazine where we pass along the rhythm of living as artists in the Adirondack Mountains.
