CONTEMPORARY WOMEN: Self Reflections
Arts for All Gallery at VSA arts of Georgia
Featuring work by: Talia Azure, Jessica Elaine Blinkhorn, Emily Elkind, Rachel Evans, Katharine Hartwig Dahl, Erin Palovick

Exhibition: Tue, Aug 18, to Fri, Oct 23 2009

What defines a woman of the twenty-first century? Rachel Evans is an Atlanta based artist and a SCAD-Atlanta graduate student who has explored such questions in her collaborative and community-oriented art endeavors during the past five years. Within our diverse society one common thread all people share is the impulse for creative expression. Working in collaboration with a variety of women with mental and physical disabilities, Ms. Evans’ goal is to share the stories of women who face the challenge of living with disability, and to raise public awareness in the community. Each participating artist creates a collaborative, mixed-media self-portrait, utilizing acrylics on canvas in combination with photographic processes. Each artist will also have the opportunity to create a statement to accompany her completed piece. This exhibit will challenge viewers to investigate their personal views and beliefs concerning women in American society, and the definition of disability in our culture. Art patrons will be offered insight into the lives, struggles and achievements of women with disabilities. The individual artists will have an opportunity to share their stories and creativity.

Joel Leivick: In the Garden
Emory Visual Arts Gallery
Featuring work by: Joel Leivick

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, to Fri, Nov 20 2009

Intimate, sensual and complex, celebrated California-based photographer Joel Leivick’s new work looks into the enticements that gardens hold out—that in cultivating nature we might desist from conquering it, and in ordering it we might grasp its true wildness, even make its creativity our own. Leivick’s photographs are at once precise descriptions, luminous observations, and sharp acts of contemplation. To really see a garden, Leivick suggests, is to find a more remarkable garden within—a garden always on the verge of its own conception, continuously in full bloom, and already remembered.

Night Journey:
Installation and Images

Alan Avery Art Company
Featuring work by: Michael Childers, Susan kae Grant, Robert Gregory Griffeth

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, to Tue, Nov 3 2009

Alan Avery Art Company welcomes Dallas photographer Susan kae Grant to Atlanta for her first exhibition with the gallery. Her most recent body of work, “Night Journey,” is a multi-dimensional installation and suite of iris prints exploring the artistic interpretation of dreams, memory and the unconscious. It has been exhibited at thirteen venues and was included in the “International Biennale of Contemporary Art” in Florence, Italy.

ME, MYSELF & ME, an exhibition of Michael Childers’ lost portfolio of Andy Warhol will be showing in the front gallery. Many photographs were taken of the larger than life character, but rarely did Warhol sit for a photographer for images with such transparency into his soul. Childers’ images seem to capture the loneliness that lay deep and trapped hidden within, away from the paparazzi and the bright lights of stardom.

The gallery will also feature the mysterious work of local photographer Robert Gregory Griffeth. The mystery in Griffeth’s photographs is not only the haunting imagery, but also his synergetic process. Griffeth uses several pieces of negatives to create one powerful image.

: Thu, Oct 1, 6pm - 9pm

Night Journey: Opening Reception

The opening reception is Thursday, October 1, 6-9pm, coinciding with the First Thursday Buckhead Gallery Walks.

Featuring work by: Susan Harbage Page

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 29 2009

Susan Harbage Page (b. 1959) will present and discuss her series "Postcards from Home." These lush, large format photographs of subjects dressed in KKK robes sewn from contemporary fabrics, such as a figured toile, seersucker, or Wal-Mart bags, explore how shared traumatic histories shape present-day social relations. Born in Ohio, she moved to North Carolina as a child. Being raised in the North and the South has informed her perspective and how her art addresses such concerns as the performance of race and gender and identity politics. Amongst Page's numerous awards are fellowships from the North Carolina Arts Council, the Camargo Foundation, and the Fulbright Program.

Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Corey Daniels

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 29 2009

Corey Daniels (b. 1951) creates large scale images based on friends, family and a lifelong collection of antique objects & oddities. Out of these he creates transformational still life compositions and portraits. Daniels' subjects transcend their everydayness through his direct approach to frame and composition and his sensitive use of natural light. His works urge the viewer to dwell in the moment of observation, in the mystery and ambiguity of a small slice of life. Concurrent with his large format photography, Daniels has been a successful abstract painter for 40 years. This is his first gallery exhibition in the South.

ACP 11 Public Art Project - "Gifted"
Various Locations
Featuring work by: Corinne Adams, David Walter Banks, John Bohannon, William Boling, Diane Kirkland, Kathryn Kolb, Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier, Pam Moxley, Laura Noel, Dorothy O'Connor, Christian Bradley West, Michael West

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 1, 12am 12am

ACP is pleased to announce that Atlanta-based photographer and artist Beth Lilly has been selected by a panel of jurors to create ACP's Public Art Project for ACP 11. Her project, “Gifted”, will engage the public and transform Atlanta through the gift of 1,200 limited-edition, fine art photographs which will be distributed to the public for free during the month of October.

Beth Lilly has curated a collection of twelve photographs from participating local photographers and with oversight from the artists, created limited-edition prints (100 of each photograph, totaling 1200 prints). These artworks will be handed out free, as gifts to the public, throughout the Atlanta metro region during the ACP festival in October, in unexpected places, at unannounced times. The dates and locations for obtaining a free print will not be disclosed in advance (but you may want to keep an eye on twitter to find out when the Gifted team hits the street).

Selected from a competitive open call for proposals, Beth Lilly's project was most suited to ACP's public art mission, to infuse Atlanta with photography in an exciting, unpredictable way that directly impacts Atlantans within the flow of their daily lives. Lilly's project is also an attempt to find and cultivate new appreciators of photography and the photographic print, by providing a professionally-printed "starter print" for a potential collector. The exchange will promote local photographers while encouraging a rich dialogue about the act of gifting valuable art for free, as well as an oblique commentary on the current economy.

Photographers participating in this project include: Corinne Adams, David Walter Banks, William Boling, John Bohannon, Christian Bradley West, Diane Kirkland, Kathryn Kolb, Lynn Marshall-Linnemeier, Pam Moxley, Laura Noel, Dorothy O’ Connor, & Michael West.

To follow the progress and results of ACP 11’s Pubic Art Project, please visit gifted.acpinfo.org. ACP's Public Art project will also be featured in "Spotlight on Local Talent: Beth Lilly.

Special Thanks to John Dean.

The ACP panel of public art jurors included Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the High Museum, Jeffrey Grove, independent curator Lisa Kurzner; current ACP Board President Louis Corrigan; Art Papers Board President, Peter Bahouth, and Executive Director of ACP, Amy Miller.
