Stefani Byrd + Wes Eastin: Slow Cadence
Columbus Museum
Featuring work by: Stefani Byrd, Wes Eastin

Exhibition: Sun, Jul 31, to Sun, Jan 1 2012

The Columbus Museum presents a multi-media exhibition consisting of three photo and video installations that explore how ways of speaking affect people’s lives and the changing relationship between Southerners and the land.

One segment focuses on the effect accents have on our interpretation of the spoken word. A classically trained actor recites a short segment from William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. The same segment will be recited using various regional American and international accents to see how the accents effect the way we evaluate the words.

A bank of TVs will feature stories from people living in the region recounting their personal experiences with accents and how it has impacted their life.

A video will take a cinematic view at the relationship that southern natives have with the land and visually connect the slower pace of rural life with the slower way of speaking. Slow Cadence is the debut solo exhibition of Atlanta residents and video artists Stefani Byrd and Wes Eastin (American, both b. 1984).

Left of Reality
Montaluce Winery and Le Vigne Restaurant
Featuring work by: Jill Ediger, Richard Ediger

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 9, to Mon, Nov 28 2011

Some of us like to see things like they really are while some are attracted to a more phantasmagorial view. On the other hand, a visage just slightly off kilter, where we’re not sure exactly what we’re seeing, may have a different kind of appeal. With a glass of wine in hand, take a photographic trip that has elements more akin to the Left Bank than the Right Bank.

From 1892 through 1954 more than 12 million immigrants passed through Ellis Island, America's immigration station located in New York Harbor.

From September 1988 to June 1989 David had complete access to the island's 33 buildings in exchange for pictures documenting the restoration. His moving images reflect what he calls "a perfect synergy: an incredible subject, buildings steeped in history, beautiful light, and a project that encouraged interpretation." Join us in welcoming David to A Novel Experience during the opening weekend of the SlowExposures Photography Festival.

Ilia Varcev

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.

The Master, The Teachers, and The Students - Photography Today
The Hudgens Center for the Arts
Featuring work by: Lucinda Bunnen

: Thu, Oct 13, 6pm - 8pm

The Master: Lucinda Bunnen
In her artist's statements for the two collections displayed in this exhibit, Bunnen states that she will often "let go of my preconceptions and let chance and intuition take over. Being stuck with what you know often keeps you from seeing what you don’t know. With no premeditation, spontaneity can take over, which is the keystone of my best work." For the H2O All About Water collection, Bunnen focused her keen eye and artist's perceptions on a pond that others perceived as 'sick,' and discovered a wealth of beauty. Similarly, in the Mexico collection, Bunnen turned her eye and open mind to the colorful exteriors of buildings in that country and unveils the abstract beauty in their surfaces.

The Teachers: Bruce Bowman, Alexandra Kates and Becky Raffalovich
This three-man exhibit features works by Gwinnett County photography teachers, Cory Bolt, Becky Raffalovich and Breyon Willis, in an educational exhibit showcasing alternative photographic processes.

The Students: 7th Annual Shuttersense Exhibit
A 'lightly juried' exhibit of photographic works, this annual competition is open to Gwinnett County student photographers in both public and private schools.
