Artist Lecture by LaToya Ruby Frazier
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: LaToya Ruby Frazier

: Thu, Sep 24, 7pm - 8pm

The Notion of Family, Work by LaToya Ruby Frazier (b. 1983). Frazier's art explores her relationship with her family, similar to artists Doug Dubois and Leigh Ledare. The content, style, and immediacy of her work lead the viewer to assume she is documenting from the outside. In reality, Frazier is in front of the lens exposing her family and herself. Frazier is both content and photographer. Her work blurs the line between self-portraiture and social documentary. LaToya Ruby Frazier has been an artist in residence at Art Omi, The Center for Photography at Woodstock and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her works have been exhibited at the National Academy Museum, The New Museum, Higher Pictures, Rush Arts Gallery and Schroeder Romero Gallery. She is currently exhibiting works at the Bronx Museum. Frazier is represented by Higher Pictures.

Showing concurrently with Frazier in the Documents: City Life exhibit are: Dawoud Bey, Paul D'Amato, Wayne Miller, and Malick Sidibe.

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.

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.
