3 Feet Above Sea Level - A Pinhole Exploration of the French Quarter, New Orleans
Sight+Sound Gallery
Featuring work by: Terrell Clark

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 14 to Sat, Oct 27 2012

This photographic journey seeks to distill and uncover those elements that help to define the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, the French Quarter. Due to its elevation above sea level - 3 Feet - the French Quarter received minimal damage, by comparison, to the rest of New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina. Utilizing a pin-hole camera and thus necessitating long exposures times, these images reflect an averaging of time so that the true essence of this neighborhood is revealed. The resulting images have a dreamlike effect that further engages the viewer to look deeper into these surrealistic vistas. From architecture to trolley cars to its proximity to the Mighty Mississippi River, experience The French Quarter’s uniqueness that only a film-based, wide angle, pin-hole camera can offer. Through the utilization of overlapping exposures, this photographic study affords the viewer a dynamic perspective on this culturally rich neighborhood.

Tales from the Lonesome City: A site-specific installation by Matt Haffner

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.

Juvenile-In-Justice: Photographs by Richard Ross
Kennesaw State University: Sturgis Library Art Gallery
Featuring work by: Richard Ross

Exhibition: Tue, Oct 9 to Thu, Nov 1 2012

Richard Ross spent five years interviewing and photographing juveniles in the justice system.  He visited and documented over 350 detention and correction facilities, treatment centers, group homes, police departments, juvenile courtrooms, shelters, interview rooms, and maximum-security lock-down and non-lock-down shelters.  The resulting photographs reveal the realities and hardship of daily life for incarcerated minors.  A group of these photographs were published in Harper’s Magazine and were awarded the prestigious 2012 National Magazine Award for News and Documentary Photography.  The raw power of this work is certain to stimulate valuable conversation and debate. 

Juvenile-in-Justice:  Photographs by Richard Ross was organized by the Nevada Museum of Art where it had the exclusive sponsorship of the Wilhelm Hoppe Family Trust.  At Kennesaw State University, the work is presented in conjunction with the Center for Sustainable Journalism and the KSU student chapter of the Society for Professional Journalists, and supported by the Student Activities and Budget Advisory Committee (SABAC).

ACP Lecture Series - Brian Ulrich
Robert C. Williams Paper Museum - GA Tech Campus
Featuring work by: Brian Ulrich

Lecture: Thu, Oct 11, 7pm

Brian Ulrich's work came to prominence through Copia, an ongoing, long-term study of American commerce that first focused on shoppers in retail big-box stores in the wake of 9/11. While President Bush's urging that Americans "go shopping" to help America recover from the terrorist attack may have been more myth than fact, Ulrich's work dives straight to the heart of American mythmaking: that a perfect, utopian future is purchasable.

His work examines vacated shopping malls (Dead Malls), retail establishments abandoned in the wake of the financial crisis (Dark Stores), and how the retail ecosystem recycles itself in second-hand stores (Thrift). While taking a conceptual approach to examining how buying-and-selling is at the root of the American ethos, Ulrich's approach is substantively aligned with his photo-documentarian forbearers. Ulrich's Dead Mall's might as well be our decade's dust bowl, and by illuminating their haunting presence, Ulrich reveals the cracks in the thinnest of facades, and that freedom isn't free, it's On Sale now!

His 2011 book from Aperture, Is This Place Great or What combines all three projects into a cohesive whole. Ulrich currently teaches at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA.

Pablo Neruda's 20 Love Poems
Emerging Art Scene Gallery
Featuring work by: David Swann

Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 12, 7pm - 10pm

Called the 20th Century’s greatest poet in any language and inspired by the French poet Paul Verlaine, Pablo Neruda experimented with many different poetic forms, including surrealism. Yet he is best known for his love poems, written at the tender age of 19.

Denise Jackson’s Emerging Art Scene Gallery proudly presents David Swann’s photo-illustrations of this Chilean poet’s erotically-charged Veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada (Twenty love poems and a song of despair).

A self-taught artist \ photographer living and working in Atlanta, David's work has been shown throughout the United States and several foreign countries. His fine art works-on-paper and mixed-media works-on-canvas are in several public and private collections.

In 1985, David was the first photographer to have work accepted into the prestigious Salon des Artistes Indépendants in Paris, France, since the group's inception in 1887.

Located in historic Castleberry Hill in downtown Atlanta, Emerging Art Scene Gallery is a non-traditional, contemporary gallery dedicated to showcasing both new and established Atlanta-based artists in an inviting atmosphere.

A Thin Space
Twin Kittens
Featuring work by: Ben Rollins

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 12 to Tue, Oct 23 2012

A Thin Space was created from what Ben Rollins describes as a process of discovery in both his body of work and spiritual life. This work is a response to searching for the connection between the physical world and the one unseen. It also highlights the empty pursuit of trying to control both. The duality of his themes are further propelled by the coupling of old and new within Rollins' creative process. The images were photographed with an old 8x10 film camera and developed by hand. Combining the use of the film with current day printing methods, A Thin Space leads the viewer on both a journey of process and self-reflection

Laurel Nakadate: Photographs, Videos & Performances
Atlanta Contemporary Art Center
Featuring work by: Laurel Nakadate

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 12 to Sun, Dec 16 2012

Laurel Nakadate is an internationally acclaimed artist, whose works are emotional and unsettling. The titles of her photographs, videos, and films — Fever Dreams at the Crystal Motel, Stay the Same Never Change, and 365 Days: A Catalogue of Tears — give you an idea of the human drama that she and sought-after or happened-upon collaborators can create. This exhibition brings together some of the artist’s most talked about works, including those named above and others, which explore the power and vulnerability of young women and the awkward intensity of middle-aged men. Nakadate figures prominently in these productions, in the roles of charmer and predator, actress and director. Her work offers new narratives in the realms of love, loss, and the American landscape.

Pillow Talk

Featuring work by: Carolyn Meltzer

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 13 to Sat, Nov 24 2012

Photography that reminds us that we are nothing more than a part of this world and not necessarily its master. Carolyn Meltzer creates dynamic images of nature that capture what few may notice. Her work has been featured in multiple venues in the Atlanta area.

Meltzer’s work was recently showcased in a one-woman exhibit entitled “Consider the Dew Drop,” at Rose Squared Gallery in Decatur. One of the show’s pieces, “Watercolour” received an Honorable Mention in the 2012 Women in Photography International Competition. Her ACP solo exhibit, “Pillow Talk,” features new works emphasizing vibrant, close-up, and often abstract and insular views of the natural world.

Meltzer’s photography is digital, takes advantage of only natural light, and is printed on archival watercolor paper, which further enhances its realistic and simultaneously surrealistic qualities.

Featuring work by: Jerry Burns

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 13 to Fri, Nov 2 2012

The 21 Day Project began as a way to test a well known hypothesis: It takes 21 days to form a new habit. On January 1st, 2012 I began by shooting a portrait each day, writing about it and posting to my blog by midnight. I am writing this on Day 176. By the opening, there will be 245 consecutive days of portraiture and a new image will be added daily through the end of October.
