The Wedding Dress Project
Xchange Gallery at The Arts Exchange
Featuring work by: Elyse Defoor

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 15, to Sat, Oct 27 2012

The Xchange Gallery presents Elyse Defoor's multi-media, photography-based installation "The Wedding Dress Project," curated by Atlanta artist Jaynie Crimmins. Defoor’s work continually explores the many forms - hidden and exposed - of the feminine body and spirit. In her investigations of revealment and concealment, Defoor provokes simple questions that open to infinite complexities. How do we appear to others? Why do we cover ourselves? How do costumes reflect and deflect the world? In The Wedding Dress Project, Defoor considers the nuptial vestment as human artifact, charged by the hopes and dreams of the women who wore them. Through her intimate portrayals, Defoor evokes inner and outer dialogue that only begins at the concept of marriage.

"Ghost Print" Series
BEE
Featuring work by: Maggie Hasbrouck

Exhibition: Tue, Sep 18, to Sat, Oct 13 2012

Photographer Maggie Hasbrouck returns to BEE with her highly celebrated “Ghost Prints." Light and ethereal, these limited edition prints, based on some of her most beloved paintings, exclusively available through BEE. The museum-quality giclee prints are signed and numbered by Hasbrouck and archivally produced on ultra-smooth, acid free, 100 percent cotton-rag paper with numerous framing options available. A working artist for over 20 years, Maggie Hasbrouck’s dreamlike paintings and photographs are recognized for her signature meditative style and the medium she helped bring to the forefront of the contemporary American Art scene; “Photoencaustic” is a technique she developed and perfected over the last 18 years that employs both her photographic productions and the centuries old practice of painting with hot beeswax. She mixes resins and pigment into beeswax that are painted over a photographic print, then finishes with a fusion of oils, pigment glazes and varnishes that make each painting seem to glow from the inside out. A native of Pitman, New Jersey, Hasbrouck currently calls Atlanta, Ga., home. She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in art from the University of Illinois at Champaign and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque.

Inside the Outsider
Mason Murer Fine Art
Featuring work by: Jess Dugan, Natan Dvir, Michael Grecco, Jennifer Greenburg, Amos Mac, Rania Matar, Constanza Piaggo, Bill Steber, Brian Charles Steel, Jeffrey Whettstone

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 21, to Sat, Nov 3 2012

Inside the Outsider is a series of portraits by various established photographic artists, which explores the relationship between feelings of being an outsider and our own uniqueness. Our need for acceptance often overrides our need for individuality, and this series describes how we sublimate our true selves into someone we believe that society will reward, but our true self is still inside co-existing its subjugating replacement. The series also explores how these momentary emotions are forever captured in the static world of the photograph. The objectivity of the camera adds another layer of distance between the subject, the photograph, and the viewer. The camera captures light reflected into its lens without emotion, intent, or prejudice. The work also comments on the disconnection between the feeling of being an outsider and the physical distance between a person and other people. A person can feel like an outsider in a crowd just as easily as he or she could while physically isolated. Inside the Outsider was curated by Atlanta-based artist Brian Charles Steel.

Impaired Perceptions
Mason Murer Fine Art
Featuring work by: Brian Charles Steel

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 21, to Sat, Nov 3 2012

Atlanta based artist Brian Charles Steel created a series of black and white photographic portraits that deal with socially constructed identity and perceptions commonly had of physically impaired people. Through this body of work Steel explores the relationship between an assumed normality and the prescribed notions that are often had of others. Steel uses direct eye contact and tenebrism to challenge the viewer to see each person as an individual. His work challenges notions from the work of Diane Arbus, and refutes the misguided concept that some people are “freaks.” He uses chiaroscuro created by Rembrandt lighting to show each person’s beauty in a traditional portrait style to emphasize that physical ability should not determine how one fits into society.

The Geometric Landscape
Alan Avery Art Company
Featuring work by: Gabriel Benzur

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 21, to Sat, Oct 27 2012

Internationally acclaimed architectural and interior commercial photographer Gabriel Benzur makes his fine art debut. "I was blown away when he brought in his portfolio," states Alan Avery. "I have known him for 25 years and have worked with him professionally, but I had no idea that he created such beautiful fine art photographs. I immediately asked him if he would join our stable of artists. Finding out that he also was a master wood turner was icing on the cake."

A native Atlantan, Benzur has been a photographer for nearly 50 years. This exhibition features photographs Benzur has taken during his travels. Capturing a mix of man-made structures among rural surroundings, Benzur creates a tension with the juxtaposition of geometric forms within nature. However seemingly incongruous, these elements come together with the artist’s clean, balanced compositions.

Benzur's wood turned vessels compliment the basic elements and themes in his photography. Like the industrial structures, Benzur has formed the wood; yet, the organic lines of the vessels contrast with his photographs' sharp angles. The use of both media - photography and sculpture - emphasizes his desire to represent the beauty of nature, as it is manipulated by man.

Relative Connections: New Work by Stephen Marc
Emory Visual Arts Gallery
Featuring work by: Stephen Marc

Opening Reception: Thu, Sep 27, 5:30pm - 7:30pm

Stephen Marc is a contemporary American griot who uses photography to construct thematic mélanges of metaphor and memory. He is a digital montage artist whose work provides a visual interpretation of American history with an emphasis on the black experience. His images weave more than 500 years of African American life, history and culture into a digital quilt comprised of family snapshots, photographs of historical sites, documents and other remnants alongside modern cultural references. Woven together, Marc’s images create powerful narratives that obviate the boundaries of time and space, which converge to produce moving and evocative commentaries.

Marc’s work has been published in numerous books and publications, and in three monographs, including his most recent, Passage on the Underground Railroad. He has been awarded the Aaron Siskind Foundation Fellowship and the Visual Arts Fellowship in Photography, and he received the Elizabeth and Mallory Factor Prize in 2009. Marc is a tenured professor at Arizona State University.

Joel Sternfeld
© Joel Sternfeld
ACP Lecture Series - Joel Sternfeld
High Museum of Art - Hill Auditorium
Featuring work by: Joel Sternfeld

Lecture: Thu, Sep 27, 7pm

From the beginnings of color photography as an artistic medium, Joel Sternfeld has been one of the field's most influential and enduring practitioners. With a career spanning nearly forty years, Sternfeld's work continues to inspire each successive generation of photographers when they load sheets of film into their view cameras.

Available in classic photobooks like American Prospects, Stranger Passing, and On This Site, Sternfeld's work shines a keen eye on America's visual (im)possibilities, from the grand gesture of the Space Shuttle piggybacking a jumbo jet, to the quiet street portrait of a woman wearing a pink suit carrying a caged bunny. Sternfeld's eye has the omniscience of someone who's clearly seeing everything at once, and yet knows exactly where to place his tripod to capture what the rest of us wouldn't be able to imagine.

Yet Sternfeld's fascinations don't remain in the ironic, his investigations of nature (Oxbow Archive) and the High Line before it became the "High Line" reveal an artist in touch with nearly every aspect of what makes America America; the uniqueness of its people, the fragility of nature in the face of the built environment, and how the past consistently reveals (and underscores) the present.

Presented in partnership with the High Museum of Art.

This program is free, however seating is limited and must be reserved through the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office at 404-733-5000. Limit 2 tickets per person. Tickets to the Museum are sold separately. Parking is limited and we suggest using the Boys and Girls Club headquarters parking lot across the street from the Woodruff Arts Center.

Metropolis
Woodruff Arts Center Piazza
Featuring work by: Fritz Lang, Martin Matalon, Sonic Generator

Film Screening: Thu, Sep 27, 8:30pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO SPRING 2013

Sonic Generator presents a free screening of Fritz Lang's 1927 science fiction masterpiece, “Metropolis,” with a live performance of a new musical score by Martin Matalon, in a unique outdoor setting at the Woodruff Arts Center. “Metropolis,” a milestone of German expressionism and an inspiration for science fiction films such as “Blade Runner” and “The Matrix,” portrays a dystopian world in which the poor tend to futuristic machines and inevitably clash with the wealthy elite. Recently found footage in Argentina has restored “Metropolis” to its original length.

Sonic Generator's performance—featuring sixteen instrumentalists and electronic sounds—will present the American premiere of Matalon's score for this newly restored edition. Performed on the piazza at the Woodruff Arts Center with the film screened dramatically onto the High Museum of Art, “Metropolis” will showcase an iconic film and cutting-edge music in a unique space. Bring your own beach chairs and blankets and settle in for an unforgettable experience.

Presented by Sonic Generator, the contemporary music ensemble in residence at Georgia Tech, in partnership with the Woodruff Arts Center, Alliance Francaise, the Goethe Institut, Flux Projects, and the French-American Fund for Contemporary Music.
