Just Suppose is an exhibition of 60 prints that juxtaposes the exciting work of Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor, two innovative photographers who create their imagery in very different ways with very different results, but equally dazzling effect. Uelsmann creates unforgettable dreamlike, even mystical, black-and-white images using hand-printed multiple negatives.

The exhibition is spread between two Art Institute galleries, one in Sandy Springs and one in Decatur.

On Assignment: Photographs of Robert W. Woodruff
Schatten Gallery | Corridor Gallery
Featuring work by: Jay Leviton

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 14

Jay B. Leviton is an Atlanta-based photographer. After serving two stints in the U.S. Army Signal Corps, Leviton settled in Atlanta and began to work as a professional photographer for a wide range of corporate clients and publications, including Forbes and Sports Illustrated. His photographs of Elvis Presley were published in the 1988 book, Elvis Close-Up: Rare, Intimate Photographs of Elvis Presley in 1956.

ON ASSIGNMENT features photographs, selected by Leviton, of Robert W. Woodruff, the longtime head of The Coca-Cola Company. These compelling images demonstrate Leviton’s keen ability to reveal aspects of Woodruff’s multifaceted character not often captured by other photographers.

ON ASSIGNMENT is part of the larger exhibition, The Future Belongs to the Discontented: The Life and Legacy of Robert W. Woodruff which presents an informative and illuminating portrait of Atlanta’s most successful businessman and most generous philanthropist.

Hours: Schatten Gallery is open during regular library hours. Please call or check website prior to your visit, as hours vary throughout the year.

Wm Turner Gallery
Featuring work by: Wynne Ragland

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 14, to Sat, Nov 27 2010

Wynne Ragland's eye for the true south captures not only the gothic past of southern classicism but the progressive future of a land that seems to be caught up in the head-wind of the 21st century. At one point, at one moment, they converge into his camera.

The images are printed with pigmented ink on watercolor paper giving an extra dash of southern surrealism. Photography that seems painted, or paintings too real to be fiction.

ACP Lecture Series
Robert C. Williams Paper Museum
Featuring work by: Maggie Taylor, Jerry Uelsmann

: Thu, Oct 14, 7pm - 9pm

Jerry Uelsmann has been called a "legend" and a "master photographer". Using labor intensive techniques to achieve his crisp, dreamlike, black and white compositions, Uelsmann is one of photography's best known darkroom pioneers. He has exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide and is in the permanent collections of major institutions on over 6 countries.

Maggie Taylor works solely with digital images. Her playful spirit comes through in her work and contributes to its wide acceptance. She won the Santa Fe Center for Photography's Project Competition in 2004 and her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe and is represented within the permanent collections of numerous museums.

Jerry and Maggie are also husband and wife - two innovative photographers who create their imagery in very different ways with very different results, but equally dazzling effect!

This lecture coincides with exhibitions by Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor at the Art Institute of Atlanta's Sandy Springs and Decatur Campuses (see ACP listings 061 & 062 for details).
