WRITERS: photographs by Nancy Crampton
Schatten Gallery
Featuring work by: Nancy Crampton

Exhibition: Mon, Mar 26, to Fri, Nov 2 2012

WRITERS features 50 photographs by Nancy Crampton of authors from a range of genres including poets, playwrights, novelists, activists, and journalists paired with texts from each on the craft of writing. Photographs include Margaret Atwood, W.H. Auden, James Baldwin, Gwendolyn Brooks, Seamus Heaney, Barbara Kingsolver, Norman Mailer, Toni Morrison, Salman Rushdie, Maurice Sendak, Anne Sexton, Gloria Steinem, Robert Penn Warren, Eudora Welty, Kevin Young, and new U.S. Poet Laureate, Natasha Trethewey.

Since the early 1970s hundreds of book jackets and magazine articles have featured photographs by Crampton, the official photographer of the Unterberg Poetry Center at the 92nd Street Y in New York City famous for its literary readings.

In conjunction with Crampton’s photographs, exhibition curators Julie Delliquanti and Elizabeth Chase have invited members of the Emory community to curate materials from the Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library relating to many of the authors whose photographs are on view.

The exhibition highlights Emory as a place that celebrates authors and fosters a writing community — a community that is broadly conceived and includes writers on campus, those they bring to campus, and the Library as a place for the study of writers and writing.

Revisiting the South: Richard Misrach's Cancer Alley
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Arthur Grace, Richard Misrach

Exhibition: Sat, Jun 2, to Sun, Oct 7 2012

In 1998, the High commissioned California-based photographer Richard Misrach to create a body of work as part of the Museum’s Picturing the South series.

Misrach studied the ecological degradation of a passage of the Mississippi River between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. This is an area where a number of petro-chemical industries are based and which is sometimes referred to as Cancer Alley. Like the Western landscapes for which Misrach is best known, these photographs challenge viewers with environmental and political concerns while seducing them with evocative and lyrically beautiful large scale prints. In focusing on the delicate state of the Mississippi River, Misrach’s work signals not just the environmental challenges facing the South but also the larger costs of our modern world at the dawn of the twenty first century.

To mark the culmination and publication of this body of work in 2012, more than a decade after the project was initiated, a group of twenty-one large scale prints are presented here. This is the first time that many of these important photographs have been shown to a broad public.

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 15, to Sun, Jan 6 2013

Arthur Grace: Choose Me

Every four years, tens of millions of Americans come together on a single day to cast votes for President of the United States. In celebration of the 2012 election season, this exhibition focuses on an historical project that photojournalist Arthur Grace developed during the 1988 presidential race. The series, published as Choose Me, documents presidential candidates, including George Bush, Jesse Jackson, and Al Gore, campaigning for support as they competed for the highest office in the land. Grace’s humorous and lighthearted photographs transcend the familiar press shots of presidential candidates, capturing instead the theatrical aspects of politics and portraying the distinct personalities of each candidate outside the public eye. In moving beyond scripted speeches and sound bites, Grace’s groundbreaking essay remains fresh and insightful, and is unprecedented with regard to its depth of monographic coverage of a presidential race. His work was made with an unguarded access that has become virtually impossible to achieve today, and holds a special place in the history of independent documentary photography.

Featuring work by: Janine Antoni, Gregory Crewdson, Sarah Hobbs, Isaac Julien, Laura Letinsky, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Lori Nix, Laurie Simmons, Mickalene Thomas

Exhibition: Tue, Jul 17, to Fri, Oct 5 2012

The SCAD exhibitions department presents "Room In My Head: Staging Psychological Spaces," a group exhibition featuring contemporary photographers whose constructed or manipulated interiors present varied states of mind. These artists charge their environments with a heightened sense of drama and suspense emphasizing particular vantage points, lighting, imaginative architecture, and symbolic and often unsettling references to the human psyche. These staged spaces serve as metaphors for our emotions, fears and imaginings, and blur boundaries between the real, the unreal and the surreal.

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

Affection for Xinjiang
Deans Hall Gallery, Building SA, Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Yan Li (curator), Huo Wei, Chen Yuan-ming

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 1, to Wed, Oct 31 2012

Two photographers look at different aspects of Xinjiang China. The Kirghiz falcons and the 3000-year-old cottonwoods are explored. Chen Yuan-ming explores a thrilling "ground war" was held in Sumutashi Township, the "falcon town" of Akqi County in Xinjiang, China. Falcon domestication of Kirghiz tribe has a long history, and now Akqi County retains approximately 2000 falcons and large birds of prey. Photographer Huo Wei focuses on that which is the most keenly felt as the apocalypse of every religion - life and death. But when one sees those intertwined cottonwoods, living and dead, new young shoots emerge from the dead, only this rebirth of things is of the highest standard, and all individuals seem to pale in comparison. Ah! Cottonwoods are said to live for three thousands years, to stand three thousand more after their death, and to remain unchanged upon the ground for three thousand more after having fallen. How grand!

Presented by High Noon Culture.

Curiosity in the Mundane
Georgia Perimeter College
Featuring work by: Paul Sternberg

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 1, to Fri, Nov 9 2012

There is no pretense of grandiosity in my work. I just try to have fun and offer a little insight through snapshots and musings on the perfectly ordinary sights that scroll through my days. I relish the pictures that are so easy to miss - like a sun-accented figure in a plowed mound of melting snow. Or skew focus on a section of discarded ductwork that begs for a cheeky title. It's all a measure of serendipity and whimsy. Hopefully, there is a texture to be savored in each.

East and West
Montaluce Winery & Le Vigne Restaurant
Featuring work by: Jill Ediger, Richard Ediger

Exhibition: Sat, Sep 1, to Tue, Nov 27 2012

Serenity may arise from multiple directions. For those drawn to eastern cultures, quiet steps though a verdant Zen garden may be their path to serenity. For others, the dramatic vistas at the western ocean’s edge may be the route to stillness. The East and West exhibition at the Montaluce Winery and Le Vigne Restaurant in Dahlonega provides a small sampling of each. Jill Ediger takes the eastern road, while Richard Ediger looks west.

For those pulled to the East, the gravel paths of the manicured garden twist and turn, opening up intimate corners of green and gray. This is the atmosphere for considering, for contemplating, for pondering.

Traversing to the West, it is Magic Time on the edge of the sea when the enveloping morning fog begins to dissipate. Serenity arises from the intersection of land, sea, and sky that is devoid of Man’s footsteps.

East and West is a celebration of mystic moments that capture our senses. They may be intimate visions of forested beauty or may be the far-seeing vista at the border between land, sea, and sky. Walk either path and perhaps find the key to serenity's door.

Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: John Oetgen

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 6, to Mon, Oct 15 2012

"The creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work in contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act."
Marcel Duchamp

John Oetgen’s photography - of colorful ordinary objects - recalls both POP art and the surrealists, particularly Duchamp and Magritte. Like these artists, he takes found pieces from our environment, and marries them to exotic places and unusual contexts to play with reality and illusion. For instance, a ceramic figurine appears in front of a theatrically curtained window that looks onto the Bienalle Giardini in Venice. Pieces from the exhibition recall Magritte's C'est n'est pas works. The viewer immediately wonders, "What does this mean? What is going on here?"

For the exhibition, the simple graphics of everyday images are rendered in brilliant chroma and wall spanning size. They are charming and whimsical in their extrapolated commentary on the human condition.

Martin Parr
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Martin Parr

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 6, to Mon, Oct 15 2012

Following his 2012 exhibition at the High Museum and subsequent publication, Up and Down Peachtree, world renowned Magnum photographer Parr offers unseen Atlanta images and a concise career survey: from his nostalgic black & whites of the Seventies through his current color work, which began in 1982.

Parr's chromatically charged images describe the distanced, impersonal world that is developing in the wake of the Internet, video and cultural acquisitiveness. The work is primarily shot at close range, with a jarring macro lens and daytime flash. Subjects are caught in the act of sharing space and materials but not engaging with one another. This smartly comments on how physical proximity with its inferred closeness no longer guarantees interpersonal concern or exchange.

Focusing on Western society’s preoccupations - food, entertainment and relationships - Parr challenges our cultural definition of high and lo by using kitsch colors, patterns, and lifestyle choices in the careful compositions, camera angle and lighting that historically connote aesthetic value. Parr manages to create photographs that are both documents and aesthetic objects, moving this art form from reportage to metaphor.

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.

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.
