Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport
Featuring work by: Santiago Vanegas

Exhibition: Wed, Feb 9, to Thu, Feb 9 2012

Atlanta photographer Santiago Vanegas sailed to Antarctica in January 2009 aboard the Quark ship Ocean Nova. On his return, he spent a year combing through the eleven thousand (11,000) images he brought back. He knew while shooting that from that mass of photography there would emerge a very special exhibit. His challenge - to find a venue that would allow him to hang 50 over-sized images - 35 inches by 45 inches. He found the perfect showcase, close to home at the busiest airport in the world - the Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport.
The exhibit will be on display for a year in the Transportation Mall, the corridor through which every Atlanta Airport passenger must stroll. In addition to enhancing the airport experience, the exhibit will rasie funds for environmental protection. All 50 photographs are for sale, with the proceeds going to non-government organizations with the mandate to protect the Antarctic environment.

Quark Expeditions is proud to be the sole sponsor of this exhibit for the the full year.

Marais Sombre Rouge
Carroll St. Cafe
Featuring work by: Emily Harris

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 1, to Fri, Sep 30 2011

New Orleans has been under what some may say is a curse. Katrina wiped out houses and tore apart the economy. Years later, a persistent oil spill killed wildlife, sea life and the local bayous and swamps. This in turn affected the local fishermen living and working in the swamps. Upon visiting New Orleans for the first time after these devastations, Emily Harris paid a visit to the swamps. In this series she captured the swamps using a red scale 35mm film to portray the dark and dreary life these areas have lived through. These images will be displayed in a light box installation to further illuminate the idea.

The Visual Legacy of Barry M. Goldwater, Master Photographer
The Gallery at Serenbe
Featuring work by: Barry M. Goldwater

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 3, to Sat, Oct 29 2011

Many know him as a Statesman and Presidential candidate but very few people know what an accomplished photographer Senator Barry Goldwater was.

At a young age, Barry picked up his mother’s Kodak and thus began the career of a master photographer. His eye for documenting the land and native people of Arizona, represents a key aspect of his work.

Self-taught, Goldwater experimented widely with darkroom techniques and spent his life mastering the art. Greats that included Ansel Adams were both his mentors and friends. His photography ultimately earned him twin inductions into the oldest and most prestigious organizations in the profession, the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain and the Professional Photographers of America.

: Sat, Oct 1, 5pm - 8pm

Exhibit Reception

Join us for refreshments with special guests Joanne Goldwater, Barry's daughter and Alison Goldwater Arkin, Barry's granddaughter.
