AMALGAM
Quinlan Visual Arts Center
Featuring work by: Jill Ediger, Richard Ediger

Exhibition: Thu, Aug 19, to Sat, Oct 9 2010

Amalgam takes us on a journey through the cobbled streets of French villages, the cool stones of Gothic cathedrals, quiet Zen like gardens, and on to unique views of the American West.

A typical photographic scenario for Jill Ediger and Richard Ediger, as wife and husband, might be “You go down the street that way and I’ll go the other.” The result is often an amalgam of views of similar subjects through different eyes.

Classical low-key, high-contrast black and white images form the core of the exhibit. A smaller body of vibrant color pieces serves to accentuate the amalgam theme of the exhibit. Jill’s images often highlight architectural light and shadow, while Richard’s frequently are reminiscent of calligraphic strokes on textured backgrounds.

Jill and Richard divide their time between Atlanta and Dahlonega and are active in both the Atlanta and North Georgia photography scenes.

Beyond the Mountains: The Interior Life of Afghanistan
Sharptop Arts Association
Featuring work by: Lisa Schnellinger

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 2, to Sun, Oct 3 2010

Photographer Lisa Schnellinger takes us with her for an inside view of Afghanistan, beyond the war-zone headlines. She and her husband Tom Willard moved to post-Taliban Afghanistan in 2002 and have continued to work there over the past eight years. They helped to create and sustain a national Afghan-owned news agency, and supported the rebuilding of a girls’ school.

In contrast to her public work, Lisa’s photography was a private solace, as she tried to understand, assist, and then step back from her colleagues while they struggled to rebuild their nation.

This exhibit grew from Lisa’s desire to give Americans a sense of intimacy with Afghan identity, to better comprehend a country most of us only know through news images.

Her photographs allow us to walk among ordinary Afghans on their own scale. Satin and canvas prints enhance the movement and texture of these life-sized portraits and walls of mountains.

Lisa’s background in journalism makes her acutely aware of distortions in our perception of people and places in the news. With access and insight, Lisa captures the meandering pathways of Afghan life – drawing us in, rather than holding subjects at arm’s length.

: Sat, Sep 25, 4pm - 6pm

To Pass Between Stones: An Afghan Journey

Photographer Lisa Schnellinger and her husband Tom Willard are committed to deepening understanding of Afghanistan. Their talks are colored with stories of Afghan colleagues and friends, whose lives have been directly affected by the U.S. in both military action and development work. With the media’s tendency to focus on violence and extremism, “Americans are understandably afraid and confused by what they glean from the news,” Lisa says. The exhibit’s scenes and portraits of ordinary life on a large scale, and the accompanying slideshow, counter that distortion: “We want to offer instead the chance to walk through markets, stand in mosques, work in offices and share meals in homes, as we have done.” It has not been a straightforward path. In working through their own dilemmas about Afghanistan, the couple’s dialogues have reflected larger debates. Their talks describe the flow of reality, not forced conclusions. “We feel our work is essential to democracy – for Americans and Afghans – so that citizens can make informed decisions,” Lisa says. “Speaking from personal experience and professional study, we try to give a broader and deeper sense of the consequences of U.S. actions in Afghanistan. We want to offer perspective rather than punditry."

WPA...working photographic allegory
Moon Gallery
Featuring work by: Nancy VanDevender

Exhibition: Mon, Sep 20, to Fri, Oct 15 2010

Using traditions employed in fieldwork assigned to photographers during the WPA, genres of photography are introduced as a framework for analyzing events that historically have transformed contemporary thought through public and silent protest. Documentary, portrait, still life, and landscape mirror political achievements and social change.

This is a yearlong project in three parts marking the 75th anniversary of the Works Progress Administration. "WPA...workers performing alliances" will take place on the promenade adjacent to Morehouse College, the inaugural exhibition of Contemporary On Wheels. "WPA...we provide art, Black Market Projects" begins at the semiannual Open Studios at Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, Studio 7 on October 9. Collectively these events support the power of intimacy to bring about change. The use of invitational curating on a micro scale intends to give another perspective of works progress through an equitable equation.
