Arnold Art Gallery
Featuring work by: Ilia Varcev

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 3, to Thu, Oct 27 2011

Bulgarian by birth, Czech educated, but Southern by the grace of God, Ilia Varcev is a photographer of record. Whether dizzying, bucket-crane architectural views of modern skyscrapers, agitated political rallies, exuberant public celebrations, intimate vignettes of his Eastern European homeland, or simply people on the street, Varcev’s photographs internalize reality, providing us a glimpse of structure and meaning in a world in flux. Recent forays into manipulation by the artist play off the veracity of his photographs.

"Fly Away"
Pace Academy - Fine Arts Center
Featuring work by: Corinne Adams

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 3, to Mon, Oct 31 2011

The idea of flight inspires. We long to be a bird. We travel into space. We follow a balloon as it floats into the sky. It feels good to plant our feet on the earth and call it home, but it feels even better to soar. With air beneath our feet and open space around us, we get a new perspective on things. We imagine. The 96-foot-long exhibition wall in Pace Academy's Fine Arts Center has inspired me to create an installation piece which is a photographic poem about winged (and other) flights of fancy. I hope that this blend of traditional photography and mixed media imagery - in a fluid collage format - will inspire you to fly away.

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.
