3 Feet Above Sea Level - A Pinhole Exploration of the French Quarter, New Orleans
Sight+Sound Gallery
Featuring work by: Terrell Clark

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 14, to Sat, Oct 27 2012

This photographic journey seeks to distill and uncover those elements that help to define the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans, the French Quarter. Due to its elevation above sea level - 3 Feet - the French Quarter received minimal damage, by comparison, to the rest of New Orleans from Hurricane Katrina. Utilizing a pin-hole camera and thus necessitating long exposures times, these images reflect an averaging of time so that the true essence of this neighborhood is revealed. The resulting images have a dreamlike effect that further engages the viewer to look deeper into these surrealistic vistas. From architecture to trolley cars to its proximity to the Mighty Mississippi River, experience The French Quarter’s uniqueness that only a film-based, wide angle, pin-hole camera can offer. Through the utilization of overlapping exposures, this photographic study affords the viewer a dynamic perspective on this culturally rich neighborhood.

Emerging Art Scene Gallery
Featuring work by: David Swann

Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 12, 7pm - 10pm

Called the 20th Century’s greatest poet in any language and inspired by the French poet Paul Verlaine, Pablo Neruda experimented with many different poetic forms, including surrealism. Yet he is best known for his love poems, written at the tender age of 19.

Denise Jackson’s Emerging Art Scene Gallery proudly presents David Swann’s photo-illustrations of this Chilean poet’s erotically-charged Veinte poemas de amor y una canción desesperada (Twenty love poems and a song of despair).

A self-taught artist \ photographer living and working in Atlanta, David's work has been shown throughout the United States and several foreign countries. His fine art works-on-paper and mixed-media works-on-canvas are in several public and private collections.

In 1985, David was the first photographer to have work accepted into the prestigious Salon des Artistes Indépendants in Paris, France, since the group's inception in 1887.

Located in historic Castleberry Hill in downtown Atlanta, Emerging Art Scene Gallery is a non-traditional, contemporary gallery dedicated to showcasing both new and established Atlanta-based artists in an inviting atmosphere.

A Thin Space
Twin Kittens
Featuring work by: Ben Rollins

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 12, to Tue, Oct 23 2012

A Thin Space was created from what Ben Rollins describes as a process of discovery in both his body of work and spiritual life. This work is a response to searching for the connection between the physical world and the one unseen. It also highlights the empty pursuit of trying to control both. The duality of his themes are further propelled by the coupling of old and new within Rollins' creative process. The images were photographed with an old 8x10 film camera and developed by hand. Combining the use of the film with current day printing methods, A Thin Space leads the viewer on both a journey of process and self-reflection

Laurel Nakadate: Photographs, Videos & Performances
Atlanta Contemporary Art Center
Featuring work by: Laurel Nakadate

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 12, to Sun, Dec 16 2012

Laurel Nakadate is an internationally acclaimed artist, whose works are emotional and unsettling. The titles of her photographs, videos, and films — Fever Dreams at the Crystal Motel, Stay the Same Never Change, and 365 Days: A Catalogue of Tears — give you an idea of the human drama that she and sought-after or happened-upon collaborators can create. This exhibition brings together some of the artist’s most talked about works, including those named above and others, which explore the power and vulnerability of young women and the awkward intensity of middle-aged men. Nakadate figures prominently in these productions, in the roles of charmer and predator, actress and director. Her work offers new narratives in the realms of love, loss, and the American landscape.
