Dans la rue
Opal Gallery at Henley Studios
Featuring work by: Aka Photo Project

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 7, to Thu, Nov 18 2010

Through exhibitions and events, the Opal Gallery is a platform for regional, national and international artists to develop and present their work. The Opal Gallery is dedicated to fostering a community in Atlanta that values art that is contemporary and purposeful.

AKA Photo Project is a new initiative dedicated to promoting emerging and amateur photographers, with a twist: The "AKA" implies that these photographers are "accidental artists,” people who are not artists by profession, but who pursue photography as a passion... and happen to be quite good at it. The AKA Photo Project works with galleries, special exhibits, corporations and public entities to foster and showcase new and talented photographers with a “French connection.” AKA Photo Project wants to bring these "young" artists and their works to the forefront to be discovered and enjoyed by others.

AKA Photo Project and Opal Gallery present "Dans la rue" a juried exhibit of compelling images by photographers with a “French connection” illuminating the common scenes, surprising vignettes and profound perspectives from streets around the corner and across the world.

The Oracle @ WiFi
Featuring work by: Beth Lilly

Other: Thu, Oct 7, 8am - 7pm

What could an artist do with a cell phone camera? This is the question Atlanta artist Beth Lilly asked herself and her answer became an ongoing performance art project where she interacts directly with individuals. Titled “The Oracle @ WiFi”, Lilly created a system of divination that uses her cell phone camera and skill as photographer to generate images at random. Pairing callers’ questions with the images she took, the project is also an experiment in how text can determine image interpretation. On October 7th, the public is invited to call the artist to request a reading at 404-805-5431. Callers must keep their question secret and Lilly will take three images immediately after the call, using her location as the starting point. Images are exchanged for question via email and then placed together for comparison and posted to project website, oracleatwifi.com. For over four years Lilly has intimately connected to people from all over the world, using technology to overcome restrictions of geography and time. A complete archive of the questions and images is posted at www.oracleatwifi.com. Calls are free and prints of the readings are available for purchase from the artist.

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 8, to Thu, Dec 23 2010

CHI PENG, Beijing.
Between No Longer and Not Yet, a solo exhibition of five new large format staged color photographs, brilliantly capturing the essence of a state of mind or a mood, which may be hard to remember, constantly shifting between mood and memory; one never truly knows or understands what state of mind he or she is in. Was it temporary mood; or was it permanent memory or something in between?

The Chronicles of Follicles
MINT Gallery
Featuring work by: Nate Dorn, Travis Dorn

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 9, to Sun, Oct 31 2010

“A man’s face can grow it’s own art. It is a canvas for which the owner can decide how he wants to present himself. Obviously some men have more to work with than others (which can be a either a blessing or a curse). Why grow facial hair? Why not? The associations and stereotypes that surround different style of facial hair is quite amazing, there generally is only a few degrees of difference between the iconic look of a Greek god and a homeless man, between an officer and a porn star, between a hippy and a confederate general. Facial hair is more then just hair on the face, it says something about the man behind it, it’s a very personal choice. In The Chronicles of Follicles series, the Dorn Brothers explore and play with those associations and iconic symbols in a surreal and fictional way."

The large print photos have a cinematic tone to them and the subjects in the series range in age, occupation, nationality, and beard length.

Ghost Town
Paige Harvey Art Studio
Featuring work by: Terry Check

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 9, to Sat, Nov 6 2010

Many years ago, two tropical storms struck the Sonoran Desert in California, and turned the Salton Sea upside down including the community, Bombay Beach. Part of the town was either under water or half-buried in mud. Life never returned to normal. A ghost town remains along the beach. Homes were destroyed, family mementos washed away and livelihoods vanished. Wreckage and memories linger for all to wonder about "Ghost Town".

Raised in Utica, NY and of Polish decent, Terry has photographed people and places for the past forty years. Beginning at an early age and advancing to PR photographer at MVCC, he exhibited his work “Collegiate Profiles” at a local gallery. While at Case Western Reserve University, he did commercial photography for a local studio. After graduation, he worked as an environmental engineer and continued pursing his photography ... people less their facades.

Wherever people gather or their memoirs linger behind, Terry strives to capture the moment transcending time and place. His work searches for the individual’s meaning of life on earth and thereafter. Noticing what others don’t ... reaching without consequences to expand his photography.
