Featuring work by: Kris Allison, Bob Butler

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 18, to Sat, Nov 13 2010

The Tear-Imbued Handkerchief of Vic Champignole is a collaborative effort between visual artist Bob Butler and author Kris Allison. The short story follows a narrator’s relationship with Vic Champignole's fall from fame, a renowned landscape designer careening into madness. The narrator witnesses his own father, an inventor, struggling to cope with what life has dealt him and what his personal ambitions have been. In many ways, his father and Vic share this common conflict while they investigate it in contrasting ways. We see Vic delve into the chaos that nature seems to possess while the narrator and you, the reader, look in- much like a Greek chorus in ancient tragedies.

Nine photographs by Bob Butler depict imagined moments corresponding to the story and serve to further flesh out the narrative, rather than disclose the stories deeper ideas or simply illustrate key moments. The large photographs present Vic Champignole’s strange obsession and study with chaos, foliage, dirt and vegetation. Among the nine images are stations for reading and following along in the text to see how the two correlate. A 40 page fine art book has been published in conjunction with this exhibition.

Featuring work by: Michael Oliveri

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 18, to Sat, Oct 9 2010

Michael Oliveri’s latest works of art explore the beautiful but harsh biological micro environments that exist virtually unseen in daily life. The pictures often appear extraterrestrial, but actually depict the little explored microscopic vistas of Earth. The micrographs cause the viewer to be lured in, based on what first looks familiar to the eye.

In regard to these photographic works, Michael shares that “the Innerspace micrographs are about studying the relationship between the micro and macro environments that surround us.”

A Los Angeles native, Michael received his MFA in New Genres from UCLA and a BFA in Sculpture at the San Francisco Art Institute. He is currently the chair and creator of the ArtX department at the University of Georgia.

His work is conceptually based utilizing a wide range of media from large computer prints to multi-media installations and performances. Live animals, immigrant workers, hydroponics, radio signal technology, effects processors, video and photography are examples of his unlimited palette. Mr. Oliveri currently lives and works in Athens, Georgia.

I See You. Do You See Me?
CherryLion Studios
Featuring work by: William Boling, Christian Bradley-West, Jefferson Hayman, Beth Lilly, Rob McDonald, Laura Noel, Amira Price, Ansley West

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 1, to Fri, Oct 29 2010

To examine the relationship between privacy, intimacy and voyeurism in a world increasingly open to removing the line between public and private. As we move about in public we reluctantly allow ourselves to be watched in stores, at the ATM, in the airport, and even in art galleries. Conversely, we are drawn to watching others who actively permit their lives to be filmed for television or even may be unaware of being seen in personal circumstances. What is our part in this voyeurism? Is there an intrinsic desire to connect and understand when we watch? There is also that aspect of something forbidden about watching or being watched. We are not supposed to pry into others lives or know about their secrets or hidden places and yet we want to. Maybe it is to know that we are not all different; that the things we think make us singular really make us the same. Co-curated by Susan Todd-Raque and Christian Bradley-West.

ACP Public Art: "Before 1190 Huff Road"

ACP has a rich history of temporary public art projects that reach out to audiences who may never go into traditional arts venues. Each year a different artist is commissioned to produce a project. Our featured artist for 2010 is Karen Brummund. Looking down the tracks of the Western & Atlantic Railway, industrial buildings testify to Atlanta's past glory as "Terminus." Inside these historic warehouses worked a community that fueled the forward thinking and booming economy of the early 20th century. Now obsolete, these buildings take on new identities.

Returning to their home off Marietta Street soon after the surrender of Atlanta in 1864, Sara Huff can't recall a single country home or church that once destroyed was restored. A few months after escaping Sherman's march down the tracks, young Sara describes their homestead as a "monument to solitude" in a "picture of desolation." Built on the foundation of an 1830s log cabin, this pre-civil war home survived Sherman's march, but did not survive the industrial enlightenment of the 1950s.

In this installation, a photograph of the Huff House is placed on a warehouse from the 1950s that stands on the earlier Huff family property. Over time, this historical photograph will deteriorate and fall off. As the two dimensional representation of the past intermingles with the three-dimensional building, the installation reveals imaginative, abstract, and fresh ways to see the story of this community. As we look forward to a prosperous and generous city, this temporary public artwork considers what is gained and lost through time.

ACP would like to thank the following for allowing the use of their building for this project. Please visit these showrooms, artist studios and businesses while you are there:

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 8, to Thu, Dec 23 2010

CHI PENG, Beijing.
Between No Longer and Not Yet, a solo exhibition of five new large format staged color photographs, brilliantly capturing the essence of a state of mind or a mood, which may be hard to remember, constantly shifting between mood and memory; one never truly knows or understands what state of mind he or she is in. Was it temporary mood; or was it permanent memory or something in between?

Laura Poitras: O’ Say Can You See? and Steve Aishman and Jaimie Warren: Recent Photographs
Atlanta Contemporary Art Center
Featuring work by: Steve Aishman, Laura Poitras, Jaimie Warren

: Sat, Oct 9, 8pm - 10pm

O’ Say Can You See? is Laura Poitras’s film installation that documents the moment of innocence when America waited for the dead to arise. Filmed in September 2001 at Ground Zero in New York, with audio recorded at the Yankees come-from-behind Game 4 World Series victory in October 2001, it is a meditation on loss and revenge.

Atlanta-based Steve Aishman and Kansas City-based Jaimie Warren are photographers who create portraits and still lifes that speak to conditions of friendship, food, popular culture, and absurdity. Their works are presented in a two-person exhibition focusing on their use of staged scenarios and snapshot aesthetics.

ACP Lecture Series
Robert C. Williams Paper Museum
Featuring work by: Maggie Taylor, Jerry Uelsmann

: Thu, Oct 14, 7pm - 9pm

Jerry Uelsmann has been called a "legend" and a "master photographer". Using labor intensive techniques to achieve his crisp, dreamlike, black and white compositions, Uelsmann is one of photography's best known darkroom pioneers. He has exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide and is in the permanent collections of major institutions on over 6 countries.

Maggie Taylor works solely with digital images. Her playful spirit comes through in her work and contributes to its wide acceptance. She won the Santa Fe Center for Photography's Project Competition in 2004 and her work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe and is represented within the permanent collections of numerous museums.

Jerry and Maggie are also husband and wife - two innovative photographers who create their imagery in very different ways with very different results, but equally dazzling effect!

This lecture coincides with exhibitions by Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor at the Art Institute of Atlanta's Sandy Springs and Decatur Campuses (see ACP listings 061 & 062 for details).

Physical Environments Support Mental Environments
Featuring work by: Cody VanderKaay

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 16, to Sat, Nov 13 2010

“A billboard is often seen as an invasive ubiquitous structure; with it's content disappearing in contrast to it's dimension. Some see geography in the same light, limiting their view of the world to the small space in front of them.” -Cody VanderKaay

Cody VanderKaay’s most recent photographic works feature expansive desert landscapes that have miniature billboards temporarily imposed into the picture frame. Positive affirmations have been transcribed onto the billboards. These small constructions create the illusion that they are monumental structures in contrast to the serene landscape.

Joshua Tree National Park remains minimally unaffected and uninterrupted
by human activity making the location specific for this body of work.

Cody VanderKaay is an artist, educator, skater, and cyclist with a fondness for mountains and deserts. A Master of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Sculpture, he lives in Michigan and is focused on sustainable practices in the studio. The rest of the time he shapes parable-like quotes, writes campy stories, and collaborates with friends. He also enjoys maximizing happiness.

ACP Spotlight on Local Talent
Big Studio
Featuring work by: Mark Steinmetz

: Thu, Dec 9, 7pm - 9pm

Mark Steinmetz is a street photographer in the purest sense of the word. Influenced by Gary Winogrand and Lee Friedlander, Atget and Cartier-Bresson, it is obvious that Steinmetz knows about the "decisive moment". His strong belief in discipline and consistency mixes with his keen eye, wandering habits and an uncanny ability to know where to stand, to produce brilliant images of life in the American south.

Steinmetz is one of a rare breed of photographer today who develops his own film and prints his own black and white photographs by hand.

Steinmetz' work is in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and most recently the High Museum of Art. He is represented in Atlanta by Jackson Fine Art and by Yancey Richardson Gallery in New York.

He is getting a lot of attention for the success of his three books published by Nasraeli Press: "South Central," "South East" and "Greater Atlanta", the latter chosen as one of Photo-Eye's top photo books of 2009.

Come be inspired by this local talent (he lives in Athens, GA ) as he talks about his work, his career path and future endeavors.

This event is free and open to the public. Reception at 6:30pm.
