OCEAN MARKET CONTINUES ITS LOCAL ARISTS SERIES WITH ENCAUSTIC ARTIST PENNY TREESE

February 23rd, 2015 | Events | 0 Comments


Ocean Market, a Parisian-inspired bistro located in Downtown Atlanta, is excited to welcome the second installment of its local artist series, featuring work from Atlanta-based, encaustic artist Penny Treese.

Kicking off with an opening night event on Thursday, February 26, 2015, the evening will feature a live encaustic art demonstration by the artist from 7 to 9 p.m. As art-lovers peruse Treese’s work, which will also be available for purchase, they can enjoy complimentary cocktails and hors d’oeuvres created by Chef Shane McIntosh of Ocean Catering Company and Ocean Market.

Observing the way our culture treats aging as an evil to avoid, Treese’s technique begins with an out-of-focus photograph of a nude woman on thin paper. She distresses the image with water, wine, coffee, salt and cold—natural elements that age the human body. Finally, applying heat to layers of molten unbleached beeswax and vivid pigment, Treese creates a beauty and integrity from her “aged” work—ultimately answering the question “Are beauty and aging contradictions in terms” with an empathic and absolute No.

In a relatively short time, Treese has been accepted and won awards in a number of juried exhibitions including, most recently, winning Best of Show in a group show and competition at the Decatur Market and Gallery, juried by internationally renowned art critic Bill Arnett. In addition to the numerous private and public collections to display her work, Ocean Market is proud to be the latest host of Treese’s most recent collection.

January 7th, 2015 | Events | 0 Comments


With its 33rd anniversary on the horizon this February, The Punchline Comedy Club has set it sights on finding a new home. Prior to moving in April 2015, Atlanta’s oldest comedy club will host a whirlwind of special events and shows, surprise guests and much more.

Since the first show in 1982, more than 10,000 shows have been presented, and thousands of comedians, both professional and amateur, have appeared in the original showroom at 280 Hilderbrand Drive. Some of comedy’s all-time legends and most recognizable names including Eddie Murphy, Richard Pryor, Robin Williams, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Tim Allen, Dave Chappelle, Larry The Cable Guy, Ron White, Jeff Foxworthy, Amy Schumer, Bill Burr, Brian Regan and dozens more have performed at The Punchline – creating a rich history and tradition that is unmatchable by any comedy club in Atlanta. It is regularly cited as one of the Top Ten Comedy Clubs in the US.

“It’s the right time for this move. A variety of things lined up with redevelopment coming in Sandy Springs and some exciting things happening around Metro Atlanta.  It’s hard not to love your original showroom and all of the memories from over the years; nevertheless, we’re excited for the opportunity a new location offers that will incorporate the best aspects of the current club with some new features,” says Jamie Bendall, co-owner of The Punchline Comedy Club.

“I was a part of the Punchline on the first day back in 1982, and this location has been a great chapter in our story, but we are looking forward to writing the next chapter to cover the next thirty years,” added Chris DiPetta, one of the other current co-owners of The Punchline Comedy Club.

Leading up to the move, the club will host an impressive lineup of talent so both comedy lovers and comedians alike can celebrate the iconic original showroom. Additionally, The Punchline team will have pop-up shows throughout the summer at different locations and anticipate producing shows at temporary venues until they have secured a new permanent home. More details to be announced in the coming weeks.

Ocean Market Kicks Off Local Artist Series with Photographer Amy Simone

July 28th, 2014 | Events, News | 0 Comments

Ocean Market, a Parisian-inspired bistro located in Downtown Atlanta, will kickoff its Local Artist Series on Friday, August 1, 2014 during a champagne celebration for photographer Amy Simone from 6 to 9 p.m. Open to the public, guests are invited mix and mingle with the featured artist as they sip on complimentary champagne and enjoy bites created by Chef Shane McIntosh of Ocean Market while perusing Amy’s work, which will also be available for purchase.  Co-owners Chef Shane and Sage Stewart will rotate works from local artists of various mediums every few months. For more information about the opening night reception visit, www.Facebook.com/OceanMarketAtlanta.

“The majority of my photographs depict energy that has been imprinted onto objects – a snapshot of words, emotions and actions that have been left behind.  Some are echoes of past grandeur that provoke a visual nostalgia. Others are vignettes of a suspended moment in time,” says Amy while discussing her work.

A self-taught Atlanta based photographer, Amy balances medicine and art on a daily basis.  She is a proud employee of Emory Healthcare and loves exploring the world through her patients and her lens.  Photography and ballet have been lifelong interests, which she has always studied alongside science and medicine.  Her favorite subject matter includes defunct objects and structures that embody the energy of the people who have touched them – her photography is an attempt to tell a moment of their story.  For information about Amy Simone and her photography, visit www.amysimonephotography.com.

Ocean Market is located at 489 Peachtree Street NE, Atlanta, Georgia, 30308 and is open for lunch Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  For more information and please visit www.oceanmarketatl.com.
