Falling Shadows
Java Monkey
Featuring work by: Ronald Nuse

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 29, to Sat, Nov 3 2012

The series Falling Shadows explores the hidden mystery of nature. At first glance, the images seem to be traditional landscape photographs that use leaves, branches, bark, sky, earth, and water to record a place and time. However, at second glance each image hints at another dimension not usually seen. These dual dimensions—normal reality and something else—reveal a mystery in each scene that we suspect is always there but which we do not normally experience.

The various photographs that compose each image are taken with the final result in mind. Using photo editing software, multiple photographs are intentionally combined into one. During this process, random visual happenings can take place which enhance the final result. This visual serendipity is similar to what happens in some traditional printmaking methods. Unlike some altered photographs, these images are not meant to trick or fool the viewer; in fact, the changes are readily apparent.

Photographs in this series were taken in the Atlanta area and at Georgia and California coastal locations. The main “subject” of these images is the mysterious dimension of nature that continuously pours forth for us to enjoy.

Inspiration Echoed
Gallery 100, Woodruff Arts Center
Featuring work by: Carolyn Meltzer, Anne Patterson

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 29, to Sun, Oct 14 2012

Inspiration Echoed is a collaborative work that showcases a series of nature-inspired abstract photographs and ink and watercolor paintings. Photographer Carolyn Meltzer and painter Anne Patterson demonstrate the balance and amplification of each media’s tribute to secret glimpses of the natural world. Indeed, the two artists created the series through an iterative process whereby each was motivated by the work of the other: painting inspired by photograph, and photograph inspired by painting. The work resulting from this bi-directional synergy of ideas and energy is an intimate view of the natural world. Upon experiencing these works the viewer’s understanding of and relationship to nature is deepened.

"Anne’s work so closely resonates with my own perspective on nature and art; the beauty of her watercolors inspire me to make photographs that complement their palette, form, and sense of optimism." – Carolyn Meltzer

"Carolyn’s photographs deepen my own connection to nature. They inspire me to move beyond sight and to paint the sounds, feelings and smells of the natural world." -Anne Patterson

Anne Berry: Behind Glass
Rankin Arts Photography Center
Featuring work by: Anne Berry

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 25 2012

Rankin Arts Photography Center presents the inaugural solo exhibition of Behind Glass, a series of primate photographs by Anne Berry. Dewi Lewis (Dewi Lewis Publishing, Stockport, England) writes: "I was fascinated by how distinctive her portraits of primates were. Anne photographs into enclosures where the animals are behind glass. This has a remarkable effect in terms of framing and also in the way that it adds nuances of texture that at times can be veil-like in their softness, adding to the melancholic gaze that so many of her primates evidence" (Photonews, Mai 2012). The exhibit will also include portraits of horses and other animals from the Eoh and Menagerie series.

The Rankin Arts Photography Center is located in the historic Rankin Hotel building on Broadway, in the heart of Uptown Columbus, Ga. The gallery is on the 2nd floor.

Hank Willis Thomas: Believe It
Trois Gallery, SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Hank Willis Thomas

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Mon, Dec 31 2012

The SCAD exhibitions department presents "Believe It," a selection of works by artist Hank Willis Thomas from his 2010 "Fair Warning" series. In these works, Thomas highlights the visual dynamics of cigarette ads aimed at African American audiences, and specifically African American women, who historically have been disproportionately targeted by the tobacco industry. The images in "Fair Warning" are re-appropriated by Thomas, who has removed the ad logos while maintaining only snippets of the original text. This manipulation, in turn, transforms the intention of the image when juxtaposed with the models' nonchalant hand gestures "sans" cigarettes. It urges a re-consideration of the depiction of blackness that is being marketed by the original ads. The exhibition also features several lenticular pieces that continue Thomas' "play" on words and meanings that remain open for interpretation.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.

Tales from the Lonesome City: A site-specific installation by Matt Haffner
Kennesaw State University: Visual Arts Building
Featuring work by: Matt Haffner

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Fri, Mar 29 2013

Occupying the foyer of the Visual Arts Building at Kennesaw State University, video portraits of working-class individuals will be projected over vinyl cutouts that detail aspects of the urban environment in which they live. Blending graffiti, photography, film and installation, this timely, fictional, post-apocalyptic visual narrative will be visible to anyone walking in or near the building, collapsing the distinction between inside and outside, art and architecture, and gallery and public space.

Organized by the KSU Art Museum this project is supported by an NEA Art Works grant.

Worshippers
LRC Gallery, Georgia Perimeter College, Newton Campus
Featuring work by: Li Hao, Cai Huansong (curator)

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Wed, Oct 31 2012

The shooting location for "Worshippers" was mainly at the Jokhang Temple Square and the Eighth Gallery Street in Lhasa. The Jokhang Temple was used as the center, and from morning to evening, with this period as the clue for time, recorded the Buddhists coming from all over the world to visit. Light and shadow created an ethereal and mysterious worshipping atmosphere which expressed the firm, persistent and devout spirit, the calm and open-minded attitude for the lives of the worshippers, and the universal fraternal spirit of prayer for the common people and the pursuit of equality for all living things. This work attempts to pry into the worshippers' inner world and their ethos.

This exhibition is curated by Cai-Huansong and presented by High Noon Culture.

Graffiti: From Street to Studio
Wing & A Prayer Studio
Featuring work by: Corinne Adams

Exhibition: Wed, Oct 3, to Fri, Oct 5 2012

We are surrounded by graffiti. This contemporary art form which employs scribbling, scratching, spray painting and tagging has gone far beyond illicit protest to advertise, tell stories and inspire in every corner of our lives.

These graffiti-inspired mixed media images give me an opportunity to focus on the composition of graffiti as opposed to its message. Instead of paint and markers, I use photography, hand transfers, collage and computer paintbrushes. I add/subtract line and shape -- and push/pull color and texture -- in spontaneous experimentation.

The computer platform offers more freedom than an urban wall as I initiate a call-and-response process that feels intuitive and musical. It is photography -- painting -- printmaking -- graphic design -- and yet none of the above. It is a search for harmony in cacophony with potential for little glories all along the way.

Closing Reception: Fri, Oct 5, 5pm - 8pm
