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 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.

Jan Banning

Down and Out in the South
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Jan Banning

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 26, to Sat, Jan 4 2014

Dutch photographer Jan Banning’s photographs of homeless men and women in the southern US, while not the first images of modern society’s outcasts, offer an enlightened approach to ideas of appearance and human dignity. Eschewing caricaturizing depictions, Banning places his subjects in a studio setting without their stereotypical belongings, focusing instead on their individuality — on who they are rather than what they are. Ironically, Banning’s images resonate with the lighting and presentation of the individual that emerged with the Dutch portraitists of the 17th century, whose subjects were the wealthy upper classes of the Netherlands. Banning studied social and economic history at the University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands and has been working as a photographer since 1981. Banning’s work always has a social focus. The social political environment is put at the fore and it often concerns subjects that have been neglected within the arts and are difficult to portray: state power, consequences of war, justice and injustice.

Opening Reception: Sat, Oct 26, 4pm - 8:30pm

Monochrome Portraits
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Trine Søndergaard

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 26, to Sat, Jan 4 2014

For her series Monochrome, Danish photographer Trine Søndergaard created portraits of individual people—not, as usual, in black and white or color, but in one color alone. This color scheme is perpetuated in the hand-painted frames surrounding the pictures. Each of the portraits is unique in its chromacity, has its own special tonality. Unlikeother, conventional portraits, the viewer learns nothing from these pictures about the names or identities of the people being depicted; they remain anonymous. Sometimes shown from behind or sometimes in profile, the subjects are never seen from the front: they do not look directly at the viewer and seem to be lost in thought. Søndergaard is primarily interested in capturing a particular state of mind, an introspection reflected in small, subtle movements. In the process, she continually poses questions with respect to the notions of the individual and the universal. - Hatje Cantz

Trine Søndergaard’s work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world, and is represented in major public and private collections. She has completed public commissions for both museums and cultural institutions.

Artist's talk in November, TBA.
