Jackson Fine Art
Featuring work by: Carolyn Carr

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 6pm - 9pm

We are also excited to exhibit an installation of photography and sculpture by Atlanta- native Carolyn Carr. She is known for her compelling abstract paintings of interwoven curvilinear lines that are derived from captured graffiti signatures-which is not just nod to form but also acts as signifier for content. Graffiti, an unknown font, is a recognizable mark of self-expression, via a personal signature. Carr's interest in text and narrative has been an ongoing and vital component to her work that has been explored through her titles and interests in film and literature. These culturally significant references are derived from a wide range of sources spanning historical periods, platforms, and various means of distribution. There are recognizable art historical references rampant in this work which Carr makes it her own by manipulating what she has taken, found, and appropriated to create a ripe non-linear narrative that is evocative-yet enigmatic.

Carolyn Carr received her BFA from the Atlanta College of Art (with a focus on Photography). Her work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions at museums and galleries including Gavlak (New York, Palm Beach), Artists Space (New York), 10 Chancery Lane (Hong Kong), National Museum of Women (Washington DC), the Contemporary, David Heath and Fay Gold (Atlanta). Recently she completed a site-specific Flux.org work entitled, Tomorrow is Another Day. In addition to her studio practice Carr is on a number of institutional boards as well as being an activist for local community and political organizations.

Truppe Fledermaus
Jackson Fine Art
Featuring work by: Nicholas Kahn, Richard Selesnick

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 6pm - 9pm

Nicholas Kahn and Richard Selesnick are a collaborative artist team who have been working together since they met while attending art school at Washington University in St. Louis in the early 1980s. Both were born in 1964, in New York City and London respectively. They work primarily in the fields of photography and installation art, specializing in fictitious histories set in the past or future. These may include: documentary-style panoramic and square photographs that combine absurdist fantasy and bogus anthropology; elaborately crafted artifact, costumes and sculpture, often constructed of unlikely materials such as bread or fur, painting and drawings ranging from large scale works on plaster to pages of conceptual doodling.

Their current work features the recreation of the famous Truppe Fledermaus's Memory Theatre of 1932 with its full complement of Batfolk, Greenmen, Rope-Slingers, and Death-Dancers in all theirCarnivalesque glory. Kahn & Selesnick have participated in over 100 solo and group exhibitions worldwide and have work in over 20 collections, including the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Houston Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Smithsonian Institution. In addition, they have published three books with Aperture Press, Scotlandfuturebog., City of Salt, and Apollo Prophecies.

Also, please see Kahn & Selesnick in their ACP Lecture Series event at SCAD on Oct. 15th.

Featuring work by: Sam Nhlengethwa

Exhibition: Wed, Jul 23, to Fri, Oct 17 2014

"Life, Jazz and Lots of Other Things" travels to SCAD Atlanta from the SCAD Museum of Art, where it premiered earlier this year as Sam Nhlengethwa’s first solo museum exhibition in the U.S. Based in Johannesburg, Nhlengethwa is revered as one of South Africa’s leading contemporary artists.

Curated by Laurie Ann Farrell, SCAD executive director of exhibitions, the show features a broad cross section of the artist’s practice and themes. The show opens with a juxtaposition of works by Nhlengethwa and Romare Bearden, orienting viewers to a significant creative voice for the artist.

The exhibition also features vibrant jazz scenes, images of daily life and nation building, along with iconic works that touch on deep social issues. Paintings, installation, works on paper and tapestries provide insight into Nhlengethwa’s worldview through the eclectic array of life, jazz and lots of other things.

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 4, to Fri, Oct 31 2014

The eyes are the windows to the soul and if you peer within you can see a person's truth. A photograph. like the eyes, can reflect a photographer's soul. Each image a direct link to the psyche. How does one view the world? How is life reflected through the lens? What does one want the world to know, see or think about them? How does what one photographs reflect life, feelings and spirit?

In this exhibit, Sistagraphy invites you to peer into the psyche of our membership. Look deeply within our images. The images you see on these walls speak louder than any artist talk. Tread carefully, the soul is a very vulnerable place.

Opening Reception: Sat, Oct 4, 2pm - 4pm
