The Art Institute of Atlanta
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

Ghost Town
Paige Harvey Art Studio
Featuring work by: Terry Check

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 9, to Sat, Nov 6 2010

Many years ago, two tropical storms struck the Sonoran Desert in California, and turned the Salton Sea upside down including the community, Bombay Beach. Part of the town was either under water or half-buried in mud. Life never returned to normal. A ghost town remains along the beach. Homes were destroyed, family mementos washed away and livelihoods vanished. Wreckage and memories linger for all to wonder about "Ghost Town".

Raised in Utica, NY and of Polish decent, Terry has photographed people and places for the past forty years. Beginning at an early age and advancing to PR photographer at MVCC, he exhibited his work “Collegiate Profiles” at a local gallery. While at Case Western Reserve University, he did commercial photography for a local studio. After graduation, he worked as an environmental engineer and continued pursing his photography ... people less their facades.

Wherever people gather or their memoirs linger behind, Terry strives to capture the moment transcending time and place. His work searches for the individual’s meaning of life on earth and thereafter. Noticing what others don’t ... reaching without consequences to expand his photography.

Chance: Atlanta
Woodruff Park
Featuring work by: Robert Ladislas Derr

Other: Tue, Oct 12, 12:15pm - 1pm

Flux Projects presents Chance: Atlanta, a public art walk performed by Robert Ladislas Derr. Interested in viewers being more than quiet observers of his work, Derr asks pedestrians to roll a die to determine his cartography through the streets. These rolls determine if he proceeds forward, goes right, left, back, spins, or stands in place. Derr began this ongoing project in late 2005 and has completed it in cities throughout the world.

Adding to the spectacle of the street, Derr dresses in a mirrored suit and wears four video cameras that capture the scenes from his front, back, and sides as he proceeds along his walk. The performance continues for approximately forty-five minutes—the average amount of time that it takes to complete all thirty commands. After completing the walk with the video cameras, Derr returns to each intersection encountered and photographs the front, back, and side views, creating a photograph cartography as well.

The four videos from the performances will be installed in Atlanta this fall. Details on date, time, and location will be available on the Flux Projects website at fluxprojects.org.
