Ghost Town
Ferst Center for the Arts at Georgia Tech
Featuring work by: Terry Check

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 3, to Fri, Nov 25 2011

Terry Check, a fine art photographer, uncovers buried memoirs in Bombay Beach, CA. Many years ago, two tropical storms struck the Sonoran Desert in California, and turned the Salton Sea upside down including the community of Bombay Beach. Part of the town was either under water or half-buried in mud. Life never returned to normal. A ghost town remains along the beach. Homes were destroyed, family mementos washed away and livelihoods vanished. Wreckage and memories linger for all to wonder in Ghost Town.

Wherever people gather or their memoirs linger behind, Terry strives to capture the moment transcending time and place. His work searches for the individual’s meaning of life on earth and thereafter. Noticing what others don’t … reaching with consequences to expand his photography. In addition to Ghost Town, Terry exhibits other work from several collections.

Exhibition is open from 6 - 9 pm during the performing art shows on 10/7, 10/14, 10/23 and 11/13; and by appointment as listed below.

The Glass Ceiling
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Jill Greenberg

Exhibition: Wed, Oct 26, to Fri, Dec 30 2011

Fashion, voyeurism, and cultural critique: daring experimental portraitist Jill Greenberg’s new series is powerful work about the female in society today. Her subjects – female athletes and dancers - appear underwater in beautiful pools engaged in a variety of ambiguous, dynamic movements. Wearing colorful bathing suits and high heels in complimentary hues, they urge one to question the how and why of their presentation.

In 2008, Greenberg was commissioned for a commercial fashion shoot with the US Olympic Synchronized Swim Team, which included two setups calling for high heels. The artist was struck by the absurdity of the styling and how objectified these talented women were. The stilettos, meant to heighten sexuality, in reality restricted movement and imposed a lack of control. In reaction to this shoot, Greenberg returned to her earlier interest in feminist art and created the Glass Ceiling series. Her swimmers, wearing beautiful but encumbering heels seem trapped underwater by their very stylishness. Eerily seductive, Greenberg’s work depicts the tension of her models coming to the surface for air while wrestling with the weight of the water as a metaphor for our culture’s demands for feminine role play and women’s struggle to assert themselves.

ACP Collaboration Presents: Timothy Archibald
Emory University
Featuring work by: Timothy Archibald

: Fri, Oct 28, 7pm - 9pm

ECHOLILIA: The spectrum of childhood and the documentation of a relationship; photographs by father and son.

Timothy Archibald, celebrated San Francisco based commercial photographer, struggled to connect with his five-year old firstborn, Eli (the tension in their home was palpable) until Timothy started looking at his son through his camera. Together, the two orchestrated a portrait series that depicts dreamy, intimate images not only of Eli, but of childhood itself, riddled as it is with mystery and fantasy. In doing so, Archibald documents the burgeoning of a newly charted relationship with his son. Through their creative collaboration, empowerment came to both Timothy and Eli. Timothy found a way to dial-in to Eli's different channel, thereby breaching the previously challenging obstacle posed by his son's autistic proclivities. And Eli found a powerful mirror both of his robust, imaginative childhood and his renewed bond with his dad.

In this program, Timothy and Eli will present ECHOLILIA (this series of portraits) at Emory University School of Medicine, where the photographs will be exhibited through November.

This event is a collaboration between ACP and Emory University.

This program is free. For complete information, including parking instructions visit: http://ethics.emory.edu/echo
