ACP Collaboration
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Norman Seeff

: Thu, Sep 16, 7pm - 9pm

An Evening with Norman Seeff: The Power and the Passion to Create

Norman Seeff, photographer and filmmaker, will discuss the results of over 35 years of working with luminaries such as The Rolling Stones, Ray Charles, Miles Davis, Martin Scorcese, John Huston, Bob Fosse, Steve Jobs, Norman Mailer, Alicia Keys, will.i.am, Sir Francis Krick and many other Nobel winning scientists.

Through millions of feet of film and in person interviews with thousands of artists and innovators of all major creative disciplines, Seeff has explored the inner dynamics of, and documented a new paradigm for, the creative process.

In this program, Seeff will show film clips from The Sessions Project archives, revealing a process rather than goal oriented approach to creative success. This screening and a short video of his photographic work will include an engaging audience interaction.

This event is a collaboration between ACP, Lumiére and the High Museum of Art.

Vintage prints of Seeff's photographs can be viewed by appointment at Lumière, contact the gallery for further information.

This program is free, however seating is limited and must be reserved through the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office at 404-733-5000. Limit 2 tickets per person. Tickets to the Museum are sold separately.

Wondrous Transformations: Photographs by Michael A. Smith
Michael C. Carlos Museum
Featuring work by: Michael Smith

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 18 to Sun, Jan 16 2011

Beginning September 18, 2010, the photographs of Michael A. Smith (American, born 1942) will be featured in the John Howett Gallery at the Michael C. Carlos Museum at Emory University. The images, all chosen from the Museum’s collection, demonstrate Smith’s fascination with the natural world, whether in the details of an animal’s bone or in an awe-inspiring panorama of America’s western landscape. Smith is self-taught and was originally drawn to photography when he saw how the camera could transform the elements of the real world into aesthetic objects. Captivated by the clarity and minute detail that can be obtained with contact prints, he began to use view cameras early in his career. All of the works in this exhibition were made either with an 8x10-inch or an 8x20-inch camera. The approximately forty photographs on display were each donated either by former board member Dr. Joe Massey or by Emory alumni Sarit Rozycki and Robert Cromwell.

THE TEAR-IMBUED HANDKERCHIEF OF VIC CHAMPIGNOLE
TWIN KITTENS
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.

INNERSPACE
TWIN KITTENS
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.
