New Mixed Media Work by Linda Plaisted & Faryn Davis
Young Blood Gallery & Boutique
Featuring work by: Faryn Davis, Linda Plaisted

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 2, to Sun, Oct 24 2010

Linda Plaisted (Washington, DC) will be showing her Luna Park series with Faryn Davis' (North Carolina) nature-inspired work. Both will be showing their mixed media photography work. Davis' work being hushed and mysterious, powerful and precise,against Plaisted's Luna Park series which is bright and bold, embodying the colors, sights and sounds of the summer carnival, yet still a bit mysterious and bittersweet, shrouded in a sultry haze, like a distant memory of that one certain summer from the past. There is a lot of strict geometry in the photographic accuracy of the roller coaster and ferris wheel angles, but the over-painting is loose and a little wild not unlike an adolescent summer.

: Sat, Oct 2, 7pm - 10pm

Opening Reception: Linda Plaisted & Faryn Davis

Opening Reception for new mixed media work by
Linda Plaisted (Washington, DC) and Faryn Davis (North Carolina). Plaisted's "Luna Park" series of mixed media carnival photographs in contrast with Davis' layered resin nature inspired work.

The Chronicles of Follicles
MINT Gallery
Featuring work by: Nate Dorn, Travis Dorn

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 9, to Sun, Oct 31 2010

“A man’s face can grow it’s own art. It is a canvas for which the owner can decide how he wants to present himself. Obviously some men have more to work with than others (which can be a either a blessing or a curse). Why grow facial hair? Why not? The associations and stereotypes that surround different style of facial hair is quite amazing, there generally is only a few degrees of difference between the iconic look of a Greek god and a homeless man, between an officer and a porn star, between a hippy and a confederate general. Facial hair is more then just hair on the face, it says something about the man behind it, it’s a very personal choice. In The Chronicles of Follicles series, the Dorn Brothers explore and play with those associations and iconic symbols in a surreal and fictional way."

The large print photos have a cinematic tone to them and the subjects in the series range in age, occupation, nationality, and beard length.

ACP Film Series
Eyedrum
Featuring work by: Warren Sonbert

Film Screening: Tue, Oct 26, 7pm - 9pm

PROGRAM ONE - Warren Sonbert: Friendly Witness and Other Films

Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Film Love present three nights of films by this crucial figure of the American avant-garde.

A "friendly witness," Warren Sonbert (1947-1995) holds a unique place in American independent film. On one hand he shows the distinct influence of Hitchcock and the Hollywood melodramas of Douglas Sirk, and on the other he was a rigorous avant-gardist. Sonbert's films have been the subject of retrospectives at the Guggenheim Museum and other institutions, but remain available only in 16mm prints and are too rarely screened.

Juxtaposing early and late works, tonight's program (one of three) explores the maturation of Sonbert's style as well as his masterful use of music. His early trilogy of short films, set to exuberant rock and roll and documenting the seedy glamour of the 60s New York art world, established Sonbert's notoriety while he was still a teenage film student at NYU. Twenty years later, Sonbert returned to the music soundtrack in his masterpiece Friendly Witness - an intricate and deeply moving mosaic of people and places around the globe.

Presented by ACP, Film Love and Eyedrum. Curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals. Film Love was voted Best Film Series in Atlanta by the critics of Creative Loafing in 2006.

Free Admission

Amphetamine (1966) 10 minutes co-directed with Wendy Appel

PROGRAM TWO - Warren Sonbert: Friendly Witness and Other Films

Atlanta Celebrates Photography and Film Love present three nights of films by this crucial figure of the American avant-garde.

A "friendly witness," Warren Sonbert (1947-1995) holds a unique place in American independent film. On one hand he shows the distinct influence of Hitchcock and the Hollywood melodramas of Douglas Sirk, and on the other he was a rigorous avant-gardist. Sonbert's films have been the subject of retrospectives at the Guggenheim Museum and other institutions, but remain available only in 16mm prints and are too rarely screened.

Sonbert's later filmmaking combines his precise but unconventional eye for color, composition, and shot content with his intricate and highly personal editing technique.

Tonight's program presents Sonbert's magnum opus in this style (and his longest film), Carriage Trade.

Notes on Program three, which will occur on Friday, November 19, at Eyedrum:
Program three explores Sonbert's career-long fascination with coupling - the dynamics of communication, romance, and desire. Honor and Obey, made at the peak of Sonbert's late period, and The Bad and the Beautiful, a restored 1960s film set to an effective popular music soundtrack. Also screened are films by two of Sonbert's influences, Stan Brakhage and Marie Menken. Presented by ACP, Film Love and Eyedrum. Curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals. Film Love was voted Best Film Series in Atlanta by the critics of Creative Loafing in 2006.
