Palimpsest Portraits Neil Fried and Monica Duncan
Marcia Wood Gallery
Featuring work by: Monica Duncan, Neil Fried

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 10, to Sat, Oct 17 2009

Neil Fried (Atlanta) and Monica Duncan (San Diego) present Palimpsest Portraits, a video project using a technique the artists have termed ‘encaustic video’. The traditionally linear format of the video process is altered by Duncan and Fried as they use a process wherein real-time image processing siphons off portions of the video stream into a reservoir of computer memory that either fades of fixes, according to degrees of luminosity in the scene. Like the palimpsest, some areas must be rubbed out to admit the new, but are never totally lost. The video portraits to be presented in Palimpsest Portraits are the initial stage of larger project that will culminate in a video piece wherein the characters inhabit architectural forms in site-specific, interactive performance in a city that resembles Atlanta.

: Thu, Sep 10, 7pm - 9pm

Other: Fri, Oct 2, 7pm - 12am

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.

Beyond the Glance…the Legacy of Carol's Vision
Tower Gallery
Featuring work by: Carol Hendon

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 3, to Sat, Oct 31 2009

At the tender age of 12 Carol Hendon's heart was stolen. Not by the boy next door, or the latest teen idol, but by the Kodak Instamatic. From that moment on the medium of photography and the power of the still image fascinated her.

Carol thrived on using the camera's lens to reveal images that might otherwise be overlooked or go unseen. She cultivated her craft on film, yet embraced the digital age of photography. Melding film and technology in her digital darkroom, Carol explored the multi-layers of her creative vision. On October 29, 2008, following a two-year battle with esophageal and lung cancer, Carol, 54, passed away at home surrounded by love and the photos that live on as a tribute to her talent.

It is the hope of Don Shomaker, her beloved partner of 23 years, that through showing her works Carol's unique vision will live on inspiring others to look past the obvious to the beauty that surrounds them.

Whether shooting an intimate portrait, a celebration, the beauty of nature or a product for marketing, Carol invited her audience take a moment and go beyond a glance to find something in her photographs that moved their spirit.
