The Southern Crescent; Views from the Southside of Atlanta
Serenbe Photography Center
Featuring work by: Various Artists, Anne Berry, Donna Rosser

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 8, to Sun, Nov 4 2012

The southern side of Atlanta is a very diverse section of the city and beyond. Not only is this area home to one of the world’s busiest airports; it is home to many farms and suburban neighborhoods. On the southside you will find the National Archives Southeast, the Georgia Archives, a Carnegie Library, Spivey Hall, the setting for Tara in Gone with the Wind, Serenbe, and Atlanta Motor Speedway. Senoia and Peachtree City are known as shooting spots for TV shows - Drop Dead Diva and The Walking Dead. And speaking of zombies, have you seen the zombies of Barbie Beach in Turin, Georgia?

Come to Serenbe Photography Center this September and October to see our juried exhibit "Southern Crescent." Photographer Greg Newington juried the show from entries that capture the essence of the southside. Also on display at SPC is "Barbie Beach," a collaboration between Anne Berry and Donna Rosser. Anne and Donna have their own individual views of a southside landmark. Like they say, once you visit Barbie Beach the sand gets in your shoes and brings you back.

The Atlanta airport area, including the small town of Hapeville, as a transportation center for the Southeast began to take form in the early 1800s.
