Wondrous Transformations: Photographs by Michael A. Smith
Michael C. Carlos Museum
Featuring work by: Michael Smith

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 18, to Sun, Jan 16 2011

Beginning September 18, 2010, the photographs of Michael A. Smith (American, born 1942) will be featured in the John Howett Gallery at the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University. The images, all chosen from the Museum’s collection, demonstrate Smith’s fascination with the natural world, whether in the details of an animal’s bone or in an awe-inspiring panorama of America’s western landscape. Smith is self-taught and was originally drawn to photography when he saw how the camera could transform the elements of the real world into aesthetic objects. Captivated by the clarity and minute detail that can be obtained with contact prints, he began to use view cameras early in his career. All of the works in this exhibition were made either with an 8x10-inch or an 8x20-inch camera. The approximately forty photographs on display were each donated either by former board member Dr. Joe Massey or by Emory alumni Sarit Rozycki and Robert Cromwell.

Bob Butler

Featuring work by: Kris Allison, Bob Butler

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 18, to Sat, Nov 13 2010

The Tear-Imbued Handkerchief of Vic Champignole is a collaborative effort between visual artist Bob Butler and author Kris Allison. The short story follows a narrator’s relationship with Vic Champignole's fall from fame, a renowned landscape designer careening into madness. The narrator witnesses his own father, an inventor, struggling to cope with what life has dealt him and what his personal ambitions have been. In many ways, his father and Vic share this common conflict while they investigate it in contrasting ways. We see Vic delve into the chaos that nature seems to possess while the narrator and you, the reader, look in- much like a Greek chorus in ancient tragedies.

Nine photographs by Bob Butler depict imagined moments corresponding to the story and serve to further flesh out the narrative, rather than disclose the stories deeper ideas or simply illustrate key moments. The large photographs present Vic Champignole’s strange obsession and study with chaos, foliage, dirt and vegetation. Among the nine images are stations for reading and following along in the text to see how the two correlate. A 40 page fine art book has been published in conjunction with this exhibition.

Michael Oliveri

Featuring work by: Michael Oliveri

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 18, to Sat, Oct 9 2010

Michael Oliveri’s latest works of art explore the beautiful but harsh biological micro environments that exist virtually unseen in daily life. The pictures often appear extraterrestrial, but actually depict the little explored microscopic vistas of Earth. The micrographs cause the viewer to be lured in, based on what first looks familiar to the eye.

In regard to these photographic works, Michael shares that “the Innerspace micrographs are about studying the relationship between the micro and macro environments that surround us.”

A Los Angeles native, Michael received his MFA in New Genres from UCLA and a BFA in Sculpture at the San Francisco Art Institute. He is currently the chair and creator of the ArtX department at the University of Georgia.

His work is conceptually based utilizing a wide range of media from large computer prints to multi-media installations and performances. Live animals, immigrant workers, hydroponics, radio signal technology, effects processors, video and photography are examples of his unlimited palette. Mr. Oliveri currently lives and works in Athens, Georgia.
