“Just Suppose: The Art of Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann”
The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur
Featuring work by: Maggie Taylor, Jerry Uelsmann

Exhibition: Mon, Sep 27, to Sat, Nov 6 2010

“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. Taylor combines vintage photographs, antique toys, and other found objects in her surrealistic digital photomontages, which can contain as many as 40 to 60 different layers. The exhibition is spread between two Art Institute galleries, one in Sandy Springs and one in Decatur.

: Fri, Oct 15, 5pm - 7pm

The work of three different artists from different countries with similar visions, but different outcomes. Dina Bova from Israel, Dominique Laugé from France, and Erol Oran from the USA. not only reflect their surrounding worlds, but the world of dreams, what may be or may not be, and what truly is or is not. This world is sometimes absurd and paradoxical, sometimes strange and surreal, sometimes delicate and all accepting, but this world is a reflection of human feelings or the absence thereof, brought out by the artform of each of these accomplished artists:
