Birds In Portrait
Blue Heron Nature Preserve
Featuring work by: Joel Conison

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 1, to Mon, Nov 1 2010

This series of birds photographed by Joel Conison shows birds as you rarely are accustomed to seeing them. Photographed as one would make a portrait of a person, these birds return your gaze. These larger than life size images allow you to see the details of each bird. The birds have been placed into a portrait situation and lit as one would have their portrait taken in a studio. All photographs are printed with a printer whose color inks have been replaced with a set if black inks, solid black and six shades of gray.

To make an appointment, please email curator Diane Evans.

Karen Shacham: Couples

Couples is an exhibition of vivid portraits by Atlanta-based artist, Karen Shacham. Her series showcases the dual perspective that informs how queer couples live in the United States. With terms like “gay” and “lesbian” most often used within political and social constructs, society at large tends to overlook the myriad ways in which these couples exist in the day to day.

CherryLion Studios
Featuring work by: William Boling, Christian Bradley-West, Jefferson Hayman, Beth Lilly, Rob McDonald, Laura Noel, Amira Price, Ansley West

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 1, to Fri, Oct 29 2010

To examine the relationship between privacy, intimacy and voyeurism in a world increasingly open to removing the line between public and private. As we move about in public we reluctantly allow ourselves to be watched in stores, at the ATM, in the airport, and even in art galleries. Conversely, we are drawn to watching others who actively permit their lives to be filmed for television or even may be unaware of being seen in personal circumstances. What is our part in this voyeurism? Is there an intrinsic desire to connect and understand when we watch? There is also that aspect of something forbidden about watching or being watched. We are not supposed to pry into others lives or know about their secrets or hidden places and yet we want to. Maybe it is to know that we are not all different; that the things we think make us singular really make us the same. Co-curated by Susan Todd-Raque and Christian Bradley-West.

Unrehearsed Perfection - An Exhibit of Portraits, Given
Pace Academy
Featuring work by: Gary Gruby

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 1, to Fri, Oct 29 2010

This exhibition of photographs by Gary Gruby touches those perfect moments when a person "gives" a portrait to an artist in an unrehearsed, unplanned and unscripted way. Gary Gruby's photographs in this exhibit celebrate those moments. They are honest, open and surprising. These portraits have a geographical range that encompasses Gruby's expansive backyard, from the few students of the "Island School" on Cumberland Island, through families in Atlanta, and the documentation of three decades of residents in Senoia, Georgia - in an award winning series titled "Portrait of Senoia." Mr. Gruby photographed and donated over 44 archival black and white prints that are part of the Senoia Area Historical Society's permanent photography collection. Artists are put on this world to see particular things, share particular thoughts and reflect beauty in their art, and do so in a fun way. Come, take a journey and view the received gifts of "Unrehearsed Perfection" in Pace Academy's Fine Arts Center in October.
