Reinhardt University "Year of China" Photography & Video Exhibition
Reinhardt University Fincher Visual Arts Center
Featuring work by: Various Artists, Michelle Harlow, Larry H. Webb, Pamela Wilson

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 18, to Wed, Nov 14 2012

Reinhardt University's "Year of China" events during the 2012-2013 academic year include this exhibition of photographs and video projects featuring images of China and Tibet. All are created by Reinhardt faculty, staff, students and others, recorded during trips. Each academic year since 2003, Reinhardt designates a region of the world for students to learn more about. And students accomplish this through music, a film-and-discussion series, faculty and guest lectures, student-created videos and live presentations, a travel tour, personal and classroom in-depth study, and hands-on interaction. Through this "Year of ..." focus, Reinhardt intends to promote understanding of varied cultures, businesses, histories, geographies and faiths, and to help internationalize the Reinhardt experience. This "Year of China" exhibition's images reflect the different ways individuals in an academic community can approach recording visual images, whether still or moving: a biology professor's eye notes the scientific characteristics of a salamander; an English professor senses the drama of a herd of goats noisily blocking a dusty, rural road; and a communication professor captures universally shared subtleties reflected in a human face. These images of China and Tibet, whether urban or profoundly rural, reveal vivid details about life in this diverse region of our world.

Opening Reception: Thu, Oct 18, 6:30pm - 9:30pm

Gently Touch the Earth: Developing Your Personal Image Style
Mansour Center
Featuring work by: Tom Cory, Pat Cory

Artists Talk: Thu, Oct 18, 7pm - 9pm

The Georgia Nature Photographer's Association is pleased to sponsor a lecture by Tom and Pat Cory of Chattanooga. The focus of the lecture is how to convey a ‘sense of place’; going beyond the postcard by blending light, composition, and technique in a way that creates an image with emotional impact. Tom and Pat view photography as a unique combination of art and technique. Their lecture will show how they use different styles of photography—documentary, abstract, and impressionistic—to express personal vision of nature and travel subjects. Example images will come from diverse locations including the Western US, Alaska, Switzerland, Ireland, and Scotland.

The GNPA is dedicated to helping nature photographers of all skill levels improve their photography, learn and grow, meet other outdoor photographers, participate in great trips and events, help others understand the value of the natural world, and give focus to a special area of interest in photography. As part of the ACP festival the GNPA will also be presenting a juried exhibition of images representing samples of the best work by the more than 300 members of the GNPA. Please see www.gnpa.org or the festival guide for more details on this companion event.

ACP Public Art - Geolocation: Atlanta by Marni Shindelman and Nate Larson
Big House Gallery
Featuring work by: Nate Larson, Marni Shindelman

Artists Talk: Thu, Oct 18, 6:30pm - 8pm

In the cacaphony and crowded hubbub of social media, it's nearly impossible to know who's listening. Nate Larson and Marni Shindelman's "Geolocation: Atlanta" project has its ear to the ground, mining (and revealing) the increasing divide between public and private when broadcasting one's thoughts on Twitter. By discovering and photographing the real-world locations of tweets, Larson/Shindelman are new kinds of documentarians whose photographic subjects declare themselves in less than 140 characters.

Seamlessly weaving together video, still photography, and geo-based data-mining, Larson/Shindelman's project gives significance to insignificance, revealing the most innocuous thought (tweeted) as a permanent act of infinite possibility.

"Geolocation: Atlanta" will be exhibited on 8 digital billboards throughout the Atlanta metro area starting Oct. 1st, and will be witnessed by more than a million commuters and pedestrians during its installation.

ACP Special Exhibition - Jan Banning - Down and Out in the South
Big House Gallery
Featuring work by: Jan Banning

Artists Reception: Thu, Oct 18, 6:30pm - 8:30pm

A Dutch photographer whose scope includes a global look at power, governments, and the effects of war, Jan Banning has recently been photographing in the US to produce a documentary project on the Southeast's homeless population. Utilizing a time-honored portrait style that recalls 17th-century Dutch painting, Banning's portraits reveal the homeless not for what they lack, but for who they are.

A photographer who often investigates typologies for what they say about our sameness and differences, Banning's work, in book form, has explored Bureaucratics (Nazraeli, 2008), Comfort Women/Troostmeisjes (Ipso Facto/Seltmann+Söhne Utrecht/Lüdenscheid, 2010) and 2005's Traces of War: Survivors of the Burma and Sumatra Railways (Trolley Books).

Banning's project Down and Out in the South will also be visible in a series of six video projections during ACP in a public installation at the Digital Arts Entertainment Lab at Georgia State, on the corner of Pryor St. and Edgewood Avenue at the SE corner of Woodruff Park from October 18 - 31.
