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.

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.

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.

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.
