An Exhibit of Landscape Photography by Chet Burgess
Buckhead Library
Featuring work by: Chet Burgess

Exhibition: Thu, Aug 29, to Thu, Sep 26 2013

An exhibit of landscapes, seascapes and floral fine art photographs by Atlanta artist Chet Burgess. A portion of the exhibit includes images from a series titled Edges of the Day that were captured during and near dawn and dusk, when sunlight shining through gaps below the horizon paint vivid colors onto clouds and sky.

Chet Burgess is a journalist with thirty years of experience in print, radio, television and the web who has been shooting exclusively digital fine art photographs for the last six years.

Several of the images in this exhibit were processed using a digital variation of a technique pioneered by Canadian photographer Michael Orton in the 1980’s, involving a two-layer process resulting in images with some of the feel of watercolor paintings.

Opening reception on Saturday, August 31, 2013, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Passages
Artists Atelier of Atlanta
Featuring work by: Jan Lewin

Exhibition: Sun, Sep 1, to Thu, Oct 31 2013

This exhibit is comprised of mixed media pieces inspired by photographs taken in India during the artist's stay in winter 2013 at the Nek Chand Rock Garden in Chandigarh, India. The artist, Jan Lewin, was one of two Americans chosen for a four-week artists' residency in the visionary folk art garden, created by world-renown, outsider artist, Nek Chand. The 36-acre garden was inspired and built at the direction of Nek Chand, Today, the garden is a journey through a magical fantasy land with thousands of mosaic sculptures, waterfalls, meandering paths and rock walls. It is visited by as many as 5,000 tourists a day. Lewin, a life-long artist, was inspired by the mosaics, vivid colors and textures of India to produce textural tablets imbedded with transferred and manipulated digital photographs. The colors and textures are meant to simulate the mosaics, white wash, concrete and plaster walls found throughout the country. The Artists' Atelier, where Lewin is participating artist, is a working artists' studio and gallery located on Miami Circle in Buckhead.

Opening Reception: Sun, Oct 6, 1pm - 4pm

 

Please join us for the Opening Reception of Passages, an exhibit of multi-media pieces created by photographer and artist, Jan Lewin.

Manipulated
Gallery See - SCAD Atlanta
Featuring work by: Kim Anno, Radcliffe Bailey, Christopher Bucklow, Chuck Close, Dan Estabrook, Abelardo Morell, Richard Mosse, Mariah Robertson, Alison Rossiter, V. Elizabeth Turk

Exhibition: Tue, Sep 3, to Fri, Dec 27 2013

"Manipulated" features the innovative work of 10 contemporary artists who use experimental and often alternative studio and darkroom processes to expand the expressive possibilities and structure of making photographs.

As digital cameras have steadily replaced film over the past decade, Photoshop and other editing tools have made photograph "processing" a largely computer-aided activity devoid of direct manipulation by the artist’s hand. The recent revival of more labor-intensive traditional and avant-garde techniques, such as camera obscura, photograms, silver gelatin and Van Dyke prints, attests to an energized state of expression in contemporary photography and its creative potential to merge with drawing, collage, painting and installation.

The artists in "Manipulated" explore this fertile new ground in image making and, in the process, are directly influencing the future direction of conceptual photography.

Exhibition curated by Alexandra Sachs, Assistant Curator, SCAD Atlanta.

Posing Beauty in African American Culture
Spelman College Museum of Fine Art
Featuring work by: Thomas Askew, Sheila Pree Bright, Mikalene Thomas, Carrie Mae Weems

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 5, to Sat, Dec 7 2013

"Posing Beauty in African American Culture," which was curated by Dr. Deborah Willis, one of the nation’s leading historians of African American photography, features more than 75 photographs by leading, emerging, and amateur photographers. It explores the ways in which our contemporary understanding of beauty has been informed by photographers working from 1890 to the present.

"Posing Beauty" does not define beauty. Instead, it considers the idea of black beauty in photography—how it is posed, constructed, imagined, reviewed, critiqued, and contested in art, the media, and everyday culture. This groundbreaking project is rooted in the belief that beauty is empowering in black culture and focuses on the visual expression of that power. Featured artists include Thomas Askew, Sheila Pree Bright, F. Holland Day, Lola Flash, Charles "Teenie" Harris, Mikalene Thomas, Carrie Mae Weems, Carla Williams, and many more.

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.
REFRAMING "BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL," a lecture by Deborah Willis: Thursday, October 17 at 7 p.m.

"Posing Beauty in African American Culture" is curated by Deborah Willis and organized by Curatorial Assistance Traveling Exhibitions, Pasadena, California. The Museum enthusiastically acknowledges support from the Wish Foundation and the Lubo Fund.

John Baeder: Paintings and Photographs
Mason Murer Fine Art
Featuring work by: John Baeder

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 6, to Sat, Nov 2 2013

John Baeder was born in 1938 in America's heartland, but grew up in Atlanta. Frequent family trips around the country solidified his love of Americana and all the places "in between," and Baeder began, as a child, to capture images of America. He is probably best known for his images and paintings of roadside diners, but that is only a small portion of Baeder's work. His photographic range is much more all-encompassing from seemingly mundane images of American back roads in the 1950s, to his new still life series that function as snapshots of Americana.

Mason Murer Fine Art is proud to display several series of John Baeder's work including images of Atlanta in the 1960s, his sign series, his iconic images and paintings of American Diners, and his newest works, still lifes of Americana.

Featuring work by: Wendy Given

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 12, to Sat, Oct 12 2013

Wendy Given’s production of uncanny contemporary photography and sculpture stems from a profound interest and practice guided by natural philosophy, history, folklore, myth and magic – magic as a term meant to conjure the notion of the interconnectedness of all life forces. Given additionally posses a keen sensibility in observing, documenting and seamlessly merging the natural with the other worldly – or, seemingly, supernatural.

Given’s imagery is overtly multifaceted - not simply fantasy pastiche, mere references to antiquated belief systems and iconographies, nor basic field documentation - she constructs a current and substantial visual mode to reveal the implicit ironies in a modern life ruled by the unexplainable. Nature is prescribed as a foundation of power, verity and mystery in Given’s work-both intelligible and arcane. She gives significant credence to the animals, rocks, plants, earth, water and heavens – the familiar, the unfamiliar and the essential. Her works conveys an intense yearning to utilize and honor our inherent awareness – to regain the unspoken understanding that we are all, and always will be integral to and dependent on the natural world.

When I Turn My Head
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Steffani Jemison

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 12, to Fri, Oct 25 2013

“If the sky is above my head, when I turn my head upwards, I will see the sky,” activist Huey P. Newton, whose words evoke both possibility and futility.

Steffani Jemison is an interdisciplinary artist whose work considers issues that arise when conceptual practices are inflected by black history and vernacular culture. Jemison uses rigorous formal methods to explore her interests in the politics of serial form, the limits of narrative description, and the tension between improvisation, repetition, and fugitivity. Jemison’s solo exhibition includes two videos and a set of inkjet prints on clear film.

Her regenerated photographs employ acetate as support so that the coherent photograph appears solid, but is translucent, thus reflecting other works, the architecture of the room, and the viewers themselves. They are both “in transit” and “at rest.”

Similarly challenging the meaning or stability of the visual trope, Jemison’s videos, which reference early chase films, show figures moving repetitively through urban landscapes in various iterations.

In a May, 2013’s Art in America. Thomas J. Lax writes that Jemison’s videos reveal “the context-sensitive and research-oriented processes that structure the artist’s work across photo-based objects and text-based images, performance and participatory projects alike”…carry[ing] an unexpected affective charge.”

Soul of Soul: Capturing A Movement
Sight+Sound Gallery
Featuring work by: Shannon McCollum

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 13, to Sat, Nov 9 2013

The 1990s was a relentlessly thrilling time to be in Atlanta. The city, with its burgeoning flock of industries executives, was in the midst of becoming an outpost of the commercial music industry. At the same time, there was a significant underground soul music scene building. In clubs and bars across the city, an ebullient group of young musicians, singers, producers, visual artists and listeners were breathing new life into traditional soul music by blending elements of classic soul with hip hop, jazz, afrobeat, house and indigenous music from the African Diaspora. It was one of those fleeting moments when a city is just accessible enough, just undiscovered enough, to allow something unique to grow and take hold.

Photographer Shannon McCollum began documenting these moments in the 90s, and has continued to amass photographic chronology of Atlanta’s neo soul scene as it’s grown from a fresh stirring to a long-rooted roar.

Soul of Soul: Capturing A Movement is curated by Leatrice Ellzy for Beatrix Moss, A Cultural Curation Firm.
