Featuring work by: Terry Scopelliti

Exhibition: Tue, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 31 2013

Terry Scopelliti’s images have been described as stark, edgy, vampish and provocative. With “My Window” Scopelliti explores the darkroom process of photograms utilizing the digital darkroom.

Artists Talk: Thu, Oct 3, 6pm - 8:30pm

Journey around the world with National Geographic photographer, Alison Wright, as she captures the universal human spirit through her photographs. Ms. Wright, a New York based documentary photographer, has spent a career capturing the universal human spirit through her photographs and writing. A recipient of the Dorothea Lange Award in Documentary Photography for her work with child labor in Asia, Alison travels to the remotest regions of the globe photographing endangered cultures and people while covering issues concerning the human condition for many of her projects. The photos from her latest book, "Face to Face: Portraits of the Human Spirit," portrays the indomitable spirit that lives within us all.

Ponce City Market
Ponce City Market
Featuring work by: Blake Burton

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 3, to Mon, Nov 4 2013

For over four years, photographer Blake Burton has been documenting Atlanta's greatest adaptive reuse project in history, Ponce City Market. Originally built in 1926 as a Sears, Roebuck & Company distribution center, the building was a hub of activity until closing its doors in 1989. In 1991, the City of Atlanta purchased the building and housed several departments while storing countless items inside its 2.1 million square feet of space. Prior to Jamestown Properties purchasing the building in spring of 2011, Blake began photographing its unique industrial character. When work began in the fall, enormous spaces that once held merchandise, machinery, and even trash eventually became empty and bare, awaiting their next inhabitants. What started as a photographic exploration became an ongoing passion to document the transformation of a local landmark gaining new life in a city that is notorious for destroying its historic structures.

SANCTUARY: Palladium Prints by Timothy H. McCoy
The Cultural Arts Center of Douglasville/Douglas County
Featuring work by: Timothy McCoy

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 3, to Fri, Oct 25 2013

Timothy McCoy attended Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts and has studied with Frederick Sommer, Dick Arentz, Joyce Tenneson and John Sexton. He has exhibited widely throughout the U.S., most recently at The Gallery at Penn College, Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

“Sanctuary” is one of those archaic, archetypal structures inherent in the human mind, rather than being based on personal experiences. Sanctuary embodies hope and refuge in response to fear and loss—here seen through the lens of time. The unconventional beauty of the alternative photographic process of palladium printing on translucent vellum underscores the archetypal symbols referenced in this work.

Opening Reception: Thu, Oct 3, 6pm - 8pm

Artists Reception: Sun, Oct 6, 3pm - 5pm

Gallery Talk & Tour

During the exhibit, the artist will offer a demonstration of the antique printing process and use of his large format camera, an 8 by 10 inch Deardorff field camera.

Featuring work by: Linda Lyons, Gray Lyons

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 4, to Fri, Nov 29 2013

An imprint is an impression. It is a remnant of or signifier for a thing that is no longer present. A physical imprint is a permanent mark on the landscape. An encounter or experience leaves a mark on the landscape of memory in a way that feels no less real. Identity is influenced by not only things present, but by things gone. These images refer to a selection of objects, memories and experiences that no longer exist, but continue to exert influence.

Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 4, 6pm - 9pm

Double Zero
© Double Zero
Panel Discussion: Feminist and Performative Practices vis a vis “Ready for My Close-up”
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Double Zero, Jill Frank, Mónika Sziládi, Wendy Vogel

Panel Discussion: Sat, Oct 5, 12pm - 2pm

Perhaps no two tendencies have influenced contemporary photography more than feminism and performativity. Over the last half-century, artists informed by feminism have critically questioned traditional gender roles, modes of representation, the position of the photographic subject and the dominating photographic gaze. The theory of performativity, elaborated by philosophers like Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and Judith Butler, asserts that gender, along with other markers of identity, are social constructions. In other words, rather than fixed or natural categories, gender, sexuality and identity must be continuously “performed” in everyday life through actions such as dress, grooming and mannerisms. The artists in this exhibition do not represent a fixed or naturalized category of female-ness; rather, they consider the reiteration of gender and identity and its slippages.

In this panel discussion, the exhibiting artists — Jill Frank, Hannah Ireland and Annie Vought (Double Zero) and Mónika Sziládi — will discuss how identity is “performed” in their works through gestures like masquerade, intimate exchanges between couples, posing for pictures and reiterative speech. Wendy Vogel, Associate Editor at Modern Painters, will moderate the conversation.
