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.

Dans la rue
Opal Gallery at Henley Studios
Featuring work by: Aka Photo Project

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 7, to Thu, Nov 18 2010

Through exhibitions and events, the Opal Gallery is a platform for regional, national and international artists to develop and present their work. The Opal Gallery is dedicated to fostering a community in Atlanta that values art that is contemporary and purposeful.

AKA Photo Project is a new initiative dedicated to promoting emerging and amateur photographers, with a twist: The "AKA" implies that these photographers are "accidental artists,” people who are not artists by profession, but who pursue photography as a passion... and happen to be quite good at it. The AKA Photo Project works with galleries, special exhibits, corporations and public entities to foster and showcase new and talented photographers with a “French connection.” AKA Photo Project wants to bring these "young" artists and their works to the forefront to be discovered and enjoyed by others.

AKA Photo Project and Opal Gallery present "Dans la rue" a juried exhibit of compelling images by photographers with a “French connection” illuminating the common scenes, surprising vignettes and profound perspectives from streets around the corner and across the world.

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.

Photo Opportunities
Wm Turner Gallery
Featuring work by: Corinne Vionnet

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 21, to Sat, Nov 27 2010

We travel, see a monument and take a picture. But so are millions of others.

Corinne Vionnet's work is a compilation of snapshots, collected and compressed into a oneness of time and place. They are transcended beyond the souvenirs of record to breathe life into the static memory of location.

She therefore creates the true definitive record of of these locations, unique to all the monuments represented and a testament to the enduring familiarity.
