Kudzu invites you to our ACP exhibit for 2011. This year we feature work by 12 of our members. Kudzu Art Zone is a 100+ membership art group located in Norcross in a gallery a half block off Main St. The mission of Kudzu is to support the growth and development of the artist community and expand the awareness of visual arts through education, exhibitions and special programming. Outstanding teachers are brought in several times during each year to conduct classes for members and others that might be interested. We also have members that rent space and work in the gallery on a regular basis. We welcome you to visit the gallery and to visit historic Norcross at the same time. Art work by our members is displayed at restaurants and shops in the downtown area.

"A Celebration of Photography" - Six Southern Viewpoints
The Art House Gallery
Featuring work by: Richie Arpino, Lila Campbell, Diane Kirkland, Kim Painter Chesney, Donna Rosser, Ilia Varcev

: Fri, Oct 7, 6pm - 9pm

Ilia Varcev - "stories from home"
Lila Campbell - "the everyday/everyman"
Diane Kirkland - "magic in the southern landscape"
Richie Arpino - "post 911" and "post Katrina" series
Kim Painter Chesney - "world travels" photography/mixed media
Donna Rosser - "the barefoot photographer"

Ilia Varcev is a local icon (although he protests "I'm not an artist, I just take pictures") - bringing a collection of new stories (Atlanta and native Bulgaria) which capture the spirit of people & place in every frame. Former "Artist in Residence" recipient (Georgia Department of Natural Resources) Diane Kirkland will be exhibiting her famed "Landscapes of Georgia" series. With a camera and a passport, Kim Painter Chesney has people & places from around the globe - which she completes in encaustic/mixed media format - from Hong Kong to England; Thailand to India; Italy to Singapore - a vibrant and energetic shot of our world. "The Barefoot Photographer" (Donna Rosser) is inspired by the usual everyday subject – but it is her unusual interpretation that makes her photos completely her own. Donna’s work is of the moment - free, loose, and intriguing. Lila Campbell (self proclaimed "no-box thinker") takes on people, life, color and imagination through the lens - all with a creative 'wink' at what is all around us. Still-life and commercial photographer Richie Arpino will be unveiling his "post 911" and "post Katrina" photo-journalism series. A story told from his heart and soul, this collection is a departure from his commercial work and we can't wait to unveil.

Deans Hall Gallery, Building SA, Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Ye Gao-xing, Su Jian, Shen Jian-huang, Wang Peiquan, Pan Shiguo, Zheng Zhong-min

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 7, to Thu, Nov 17 2011

Curator: Liu Shuyong
Produced by Yan Li

This exhibition consists of works from six photographers of Lishui City in China’s Zhejiang Province. The six photographers each chose to capture and record different aspects of life in the region: portraits of local people, small villages near the city, traditional crafts, daily life, corridor bridges, and working tools.

With China’s large-scale expansion and the rapid advance of urbanization, these poetic pastoral mountain scenes and cultural landscapes showing productivity in simple village life are now rapidly vanishing. Therefore, these six photographers, as ordinary citizens with a common point of view, express their frustration and disillusionment in the face of this sudden new reality. When these landscapes and this vibrant and vivid group of people have become only a memory, perhaps only these images, at some unknown moment in the future, will be able to evoke our shared cultural past.
