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.

The Music Seen
Apres Diem
Featuring work by: Perry Julien

Exhibition: Tue, Sep 15, to Wed, Nov 4 2009

Perry Julien's passion for music and photography came together for the first time as a teenager photographing Led Zeppelin at Madison Square Garden. He now photographs for Creative Loafing Magazine and Stomp and Stammer Magazine as their contributing music photographer.

When not photographing music, Julien is often photographing to music, focusing his camera on intriguing people and shooting alternative fashion. His images reflect the creative interaction with the people he photographs. His work has been described as "a perspective leaving the viewer with unanswered questions and wanting to see more". He is continually seeking ways to push the boundaries of his photography and explore new ways to capture unique and compelling images.

Business or Pleasure:
Photographs by Sarah Dorio

Sunrise Bank of Atlanta
Featuring work by: Sarah Dorio

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 24, to Tue, Dec 1 2009

Officials ask every international traveler, “Is your trip for business or pleasure?” Since childhood, Sarah Dorio has dreamed of traveling to historic places around the world. Her fascination with the mystery and romance of old world hotels and historic landmarks is evident in this dream-like series from Cairo, Giza, Sharm el-Sheikh, Rome, Milan, Bellagio and Petra, made over three years. Working with a vintage camera found on eBay, Dorio uses a vivid color film called Kodak Portra. She focuses her old camera on abstract segments of famous places that seem to fit together like puzzle pieces and ancient memories. The end result feels more like rich watercolors with softened edges, evoking moods that are both contemporary and timeless. Each image is a pure representation of the original negative and none have been manipulated digitally.

GreenShot: Environmental Awareness Through Art
Emerging Art Scene at The Stacks
Featuring work by: Traci Browning, Julie Marateck

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 16, to Mon, Nov 30 2009

Work by Traci Browning: Much of my life has been spent in nature--walking the beach, swimming the ocean, horseback rides deep into the woods, and countless hikes in national parks across the entire US. The call of the outdoors has taken me on the road for six months of the last two years. One constant has always been a camera to document my adventures and share them with others. The intention of my work is first to preserve an image of a real place before it is ravaged with global warming and misuse, and second, to share these places with people that aren't aware of them yet. With GreenShot we are hoping to raise awareness and the desire to change our daily habits to lessen the impact on these precious places.

ACP 11 My Atlanta - Photo Book Fair
Piedmont Park Communty Center

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 17, 9am - 1pm

One of the many effects of photography’s rising popularity has been a boom in photographic publishing. Photo-books, and ways to make them, are proliferating, now that the tools to make your own have moved to the desktop (or laptop!) ACP thought it would be great to provide an opportunity for photographers who have published books (on their own, or with publishers) to present their books for sale at a small photo book fair at Piedmont Park’s Community Center, in conjunction with the My Atlanta Exhibit. A portion of the proceeds of this event will go to the Piedmont Park Conservancy.

If you'd like to participate in the My Atlanta Book Fair, please sign-up!

Harry Shearer is one of America's most prominent satirists, and during a stint as a writer and cast member on Saturday Night Live in the 1980s, he discovered satellite news feeds.

Please join Harry in a discussion about his work. Also joining in the discussion are panelists Jim Clancy, Anchor/Correspondent, CNN International, and Michael David Murphy, Program Manager for Atlanta Celebrates Photography. The panel will be moderated by Stuart Horodner, Curator for the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center.
