Anne Berry: Behind Glass
Rankin Arts Photography Center
Featuring work by: Anne Berry

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 25 2012

Rankin Arts Photography Center presents the inaugural solo exhibition of Behind Glass, a series of primate photographs by Anne Berry. Dewi Lewis (Dewi Lewis Publishing, Stockport, England) writes: "I was fascinated by how distinctive her portraits of primates were. Anne photographs into enclosures where the animals are behind glass. This has a remarkable effect in terms of framing and also in the way that it adds nuances of texture that at times can be veil-like in their softness, adding to the melancholic gaze that so many of her primates evidence" (Photonews, Mai 2012). The exhibit will also include portraits of horses and other animals from the Eoh and Menagerie series.

The Rankin Arts Photography Center is located in the historic Rankin Hotel building on Broadway, in the heart of Uptown Columbus, Ga. The gallery is on the 2nd floor.

Closing Reception: Thu, Oct 25, 6pm - 8pm

Tales from the Lonesome City: A site-specific installation by Matt Haffner
Kennesaw State University: Visual Arts Building
Featuring work by: Matt Haffner

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Fri, Mar 29 2013

Occupying the foyer of the Visual Arts Building at Kennesaw State University, video portraits of working-class individuals will be projected over vinyl cutouts that detail aspects of the urban environment in which they live. Blending graffiti, photography, film and installation, this timely, fictional, post-apocalyptic visual narrative will be visible to anyone walking in or near the building, collapsing the distinction between inside and outside, art and architecture, and gallery and public space.

Organized by the KSU Art Museum this project is supported by an NEA Art Works grant.

All KSU Art Museum events are free and open to the public. Closed on University and public holidays. Building hours may vary between regular academic semesters.

LRC Gallery, Georgia Perimeter College, Newton Campus
Featuring work by: Li Hao, Cai Huansong (curator)

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Wed, Oct 31 2012

The shooting location for "Worshippers" was mainly at the Jokhang Temple Square and the Eighth Gallery Street in Lhasa. The Jokhang Temple was used as the center, and from morning to evening, with this period as the clue for time, recorded the Buddhists coming from all over the world to visit. Light and shadow created an ethereal and mysterious worshipping atmosphere which expressed the firm, persistent and devout spirit, the calm and open-minded attitude for the lives of the worshippers, and the universal fraternal spirit of prayer for the common people and the pursuit of equality for all living things. This work attempts to pry into the worshippers' inner world and their ethos.

This exhibition is curated by Cai-Huansong and presented by High Noon Culture.

Hank Willis Thomas: Believe It
Trois Gallery, SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Hank Willis Thomas

Exhibition: Mon, Oct 1, to Mon, Dec 31 2012

The SCAD exhibitions department presents "Believe It," a selection of works by artist Hank Willis Thomas from his 2010 "Fair Warning" series. In these works, Thomas highlights the visual dynamics of cigarette ads aimed at African American audiences, and specifically African American women, who historically have been disproportionately targeted by the tobacco industry. The images in "Fair Warning" are re-appropriated by Thomas, who has removed the ad logos while maintaining only snippets of the original text. This manipulation, in turn, transforms the intention of the image when juxtaposed with the models' nonchalant hand gestures "sans" cigarettes. It urges a re-consideration of the depiction of blackness that is being marketed by the original ads. The exhibition also features several lenticular pieces that continue Thomas' "play" on words and meanings that remain open for interpretation.

The exhibition and reception are free and open to the public.
