Avery Gallery welcomes international photo-journalist Scott MacQuarrie from Canada for the May 3 Artwalk. He has been a member of the Canadian Association of Journalists for nearly 10 years. He is a member of PPA, ASMP, PPOC, APA-EP, EP-Canada, and EP-UK. He was recently invited to join the X-Rite Coloratti community, a select group of currently 80 photographers considered to be experts in color.

In addition to being a world-renowned photographer, Scott is also Autistic. After being diagnosed at the age of 46, he realized that he had taught himself many of the same coping skills educators now teach children. Scott decided that the real value of his experiences would be for younger autistics to understand that autism comes with some benefits and that they can do whatever they want to do in life. Since that time Scott has given talks to many groups in Canada concerning autism.

A taste of GG's Creole Cuisine will be served and refreshments will be available. Parking is free in our parking lot next to our building.

Scott will also be available on Saturday, May 4, for talks concerning autism and the arts throughout the day at Avery Gallery. Please contact us for more information.

The Avery Gallery in Marietta is managed by former Main Street Dallas photographer Nicholas Cole. Thanks for the tip Nick.

************* ONE (1) Death************ WORLDWIDE (Monorail)
In 2003 there were 6,328,000 car accidents (in the US.) There were 2.9 million injuries and 42,643 people were killed in auto accidents.
In 2002, there were an estimated 6,316,000 car accidents in the USA. There were about 2.9 million injuries and 42,815 people were killed in auto accidents in 2002.

Automobiles and their use are responsible for more pollution and other environmental destruction, including the largest share of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, than any other human pursuit in the world. Cars also cause 40,000 human and 400,000,000 animal deaths every year in the US. Cars lead to suburban growth (= natural habitat destruction) and social isolation.

Thanks to P.com for letting me post this event. We look forward to having Scott visit us in person from Canada to talk about autism, photography and how he managed to work both into a very positive mental attitude with great results. I will post a few of his photographs Friday 4-26. Look for them in the afternoon.

My ten year old has three trophies and a medal for his photography so far. Anyone who comes over must marvel at his talent. :blush: He will LOVE this event. Especially getting to meet someone "like him" and who followed his dreams. He doesn't want to be a photographer, though. He wants to build and operate hotels. Thank you!!!
