Off-Leash
Smyrna Public Library
Featuring work by: Alex Neely

Exhibition: Wed, Sep 2, to Sat, Oct 31 2009

As descendants of the Gray Wolf, dogs are pack animals with complex behavioral patterns. They need interaction with other dogs and humans (socialization) in order to be well balanced. Any dog that is isolated and not provided with adequate exercise and a chance to interact with other dogs and humans may become territorial, dog aggressive, human aggressive, destructive or exhibit other forms of undesirable behavior and can become dangerous. Off-leash dog parks provide neutral territory where dogs can interact with other dogs, get exercise and practice good behavior. They are a huge benefit to dog owners - especially ones that do not have fenced yards where their pets can run and play. They are also great places for dog owners to meet and socialize with other dog owners.

Off-Leash is a collection of B/W and Color images of dogs being dogs at the off-leash areas at Lake Court and Burger Parks in Smyrna, GA. Its purpose is call attention to the benefit of these areas with the hope that more of these parks will be added not only in Smyrna, but in all communities.

A Time to Dance
Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Marti Griffin

: Wed, Sep 23, 5pm - 7pm

Inspiration for the title of this dual exhibit comes from a classic and widely quoted passage.

"…A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance..." - Ecclesiastes 3:1.

What better way to depict certain aspects of life? People or places... doesn't seem to make any difference. It is all a matter of time. We become, have our time, then we are gone. One side of the gallery shows Backstreet, a former Atlanta nightspot, while the other side highlights some of my favorite funerary art images that have attracted my eye during brief travels. The nightclub Backstreet took on a life of its own and what an exciting life it was! Open twenty-four hours seven days a week for almost thirty years, there was never a dull moment. It was a place where much laughing and dancing was enjoyed by all its many patrons! Funerary art, on the other side, is a passion of mine. Cemeteries fascinate me with all the magnificent art, each piece created to honor someone. Of course, they are renowned places of weeping and mourning. After all, it is the final dance.

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.

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.

Post-Documentary Chinese Photography

Georgia Perimeter College, Clarkston
Featuring work by: Lu Heng, Lu Ning, Zou Shenwu, Wang Yishu, Fu Yu

: Fri, Oct 16, 5pm - 7pm

A group of five young Chinese photographers have had unusual influence in the world of documentary photography in China. Chinese critics have named the collective movement "Post-Documentary Chinese Photography."

Chinese post-documentary photography exhibits the interplay between the photographer's inner vision and perceived reality as expressed through a photographic image while documentary photography captures the reality and the existence of life in a specific culture or location. Documentary photography has played an important role by recording an objective image of reality that has spurred social change and provided a foundation for the research of anthropology, history, sociology and cultural studies.

It is the intent that the images of the Chinese post-documentary photographer will provide visual evidence to explain a more personal reality which reveals the photographer's internal most worlds.

Water - A Photographic Exhibition
Georgia Perimeter College, Clarkston
Featuring work by: Zhou Ning

: Fri, Oct 16, 5pm - 7pm

Since ancient time, water has served as an inspiration for philosophers and artists and as the source of creative expression:

"women are like water, which can dissolve any ideology of man...water can restrain fire and can eliminate the fire-like disaster...water that carries the boat, can also overturn the boat."

The word water is mysterious. Its movement or calmness creates endless opportunities to create emotionally charged images. The artist Zhou Ning grew up in a traditional Chinese culture, and his understanding and interpretation of water are founded in the interpretation of traditional Chinese literature and philosophy. The "waters" in his images were captured in countries around the world, and are of a magic coincidence and discovery.

The expression of his images are abstract, reflect the complexity of the manifestations of human nature, and allow you to sense a context of an eastern philosophy which interflows with western abstract images of the likes of Pablo Picasso and Henri Matisse...

As you view the images of Zhou Ning, look, contemplate, and internalize the photographs as it flows from his interpretation of the world to yours.

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 24, 7pm - 9:30pm

O'Connor is an Atlanta photographer who constructs magical dreamscapes in her
garage out of found materials retrieved from thrift stores, eBay, her own front
porch, and what the wind blows in. Her ongoing series of color photographs
documents these fabricated scenes that are both autobiographical and
fantastical. This installation of "kin" marks the second time O'Connor has
invited her audience to enter one of her worlds. There will be a 20 minute performance at 8pm and another one at 8:45pm.
