Artist: Craig Cameron

Craig Cameron has lived in Atlanta since the summer of 2010.  He was born in Canada where he spent his formative years before relocating to the States like a swashbuckler from the Caribbean but of Scottish and Welsh descent.  He relocated to Atlanta seeking opportunity and prosperity.  He discovered opportunity grasping it with complete resolve like his favorite day of the week, which is Saturday.  On this day he enjoys resting into the late morning.  When he wakes up he greets his cats and provides them nourishment.  He enjoys sitting, whether inside his home or on his porch, determining the route to proceed with his day.  He turns on his computer to access the World Wide Web to watch NHL highlights of games that took place the previous night, regardless if, at that point, he’s determined what to do that day.  He actively engages the day, filling it with activities that suit his desire.  Whether related to art or not, even something mundane as grocery shopping, he enjoys it because he does like to cook.  He cooks chicken so well you would turn down a steak to eat it.  He thinks about reading on Saturdays, but usually fails to do so.  Craig also draws… he draws images that enrapture the mind, soften the heart and solidify the soul.  However, because he spends large portions of each day in a seated position he finds it difficult to draw for lengths of time as he prefers to move about on Saturdays, even if it’s rainy outside.  He spends time walking around Atlanta neighborhoods enjoying his surroundings shopping, eating, and engaging in discourse as he occasionally bumps into friends and acquaintances.  His Saturdays are filled with gratitude and prosperity, as the day concedes to darkness he spends time with his girlfriend and best friends; gathering together in boisterous and jovial jubilation.  He is a dashing man… in all parts of speech.  He hates the humidity.

Brenten W.

Brenten is 16 years old and has been a member of the A.R. "Gus" Barksdale Club for nine years.  His favorite Club activity is College Bound, because it has opened his eyes to the possibilities of being a college student; he wants to have a career where he can work with computers.  He says that the BGCMA has helped guide him on a positive path, created a nurturing environment, and given him confidence.  For him, the best part of BGCMA is the people – both the staff and the members.  It’s his home away from home.
