Featuring work by: Lucinda Bunnen

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 18, to Fri, Dec 13 2013

Lucinda Bunnen: Georgia Portraits, a selection from her Movers and Shakers series curated by Constance Lewis and Jerry Cullum, presents 27 portraits of Atlantans and others who creatively shaped or re-defined the State’s political, art and business landscapes. Bunnen is at home in all these influential worlds and her formal portraits and snapshots capture intimate visual details of these high-profile figures, each one as imaginative and expressive as her photographs.

The mission of The Atlanta Preservation Center is to promote the preservation of Atlanta's architecturally, historically and culturally significant buildings, neighborhoods and landscapes through education and advocacy. The Center is located in the 1856 Lemuel P. Grant mansion which features a 680 square foot gallery in its Drawing Room. This gallery is host to exhibitions that underscore the Center’s mission. Its purpose is to demonstrate that the preserved environment is a valuable and inspirational part of the present.

A Painterly Nature
Thomas Deans Fine Art
Featuring work by: Betty Edge, Kathryn Kolb

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 18, to Sat, Nov 9 2013

Atlanta photographers Kathryn Kolb and Betty Edge explore the "logos" and "pathos" of the painterly image. Both photographers turn their lenses to nature, but with very different results. Kolb is known for the rigorous formalism that underpins each of her images (which she most often prints using traditional techniques), revealing the poetry in nature's geometry. Edge is known for her nontraditional approach (in the past printing with billboard ink on highly reflective aluminum and most recently on an aluminum composite) to evoke both the transience and renewal of the natural world. Kolb's and Edge's photographs will be shown in conjunction with paintings by Stephen Pentak, whose landscapes also combine nontraditional methods and a highly formalized approach that is at times close to hieratic.

Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 18, 6pm - 8pm

Fabrics of Socialism
Featuring work by: Vesna Pavlović

Exhibition: Fri, Oct 18, to Sat, Nov 23 2013

Whitespace presents Fabrics of Socialism, Vesna Pavlović’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

Fabrics of Socialism is the body of photographic work based on the research of an archive of black and white images found in the Museum of Yugoslav History in Belgrade. The archive is the visual record of the former Yugoslav president Josip Broz Tito’s career and his travels around the world and former Yugoslavia. Transforming the archive into a large theatrical set offers the way to discuss the photographic representation of history and collective memory of post WWII Yugoslavia. The tension between the archive’s private intention and its public display is central to the character of the archive’s photographic and historical representation. The works in the exhibition evoke a bygone socialist utopia and everydayness of monumental history.

Vesna Pavlović’s projects examine visual representations of specific cultural and political histories through the mechanism of photographic representation. Her photographic installations interrogate the impermanence of photographic archives and their preservation in advance of digital technologies. Photographic archives serve as a repository for a historically distinct, analog technology. Through a variety of strategies Vesna Pavlović expands the photographic image beyond its frame, traditional format, and the narrative.

Opening Reception: Fri, Oct 18, 7pm - 10pm

Project 1960
Downtown Atlanta
Featuring work by: Sheila Pree Bright

Other: Fri, Oct 18, to Sat, Oct 26 2013

Inspired by the Civil Rights Era, Sheila Pree Bright's new photographic series works as an innovative platform of American history never told. The project will function as an art exhibition and online campaign presented in effort to raise generational awareness of terroristic struggles, but more importantly to influence neighborhoods to think critically about community building as a team. Phase one of the ‘1960 WHO’ art street project will launch in Atlanta then travel to other locations in the country. Life-sized portraits of the Atlanta Student Movement will be display in the urban landscape as an art gallery on significant public walls in communities where acts of social injustices have transpired. The collection of portraits depict ordinary and grassroots people who placed their lives on the line during the Civil Rights Movement. They were the youth of the ‘1960s.’
