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.

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 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

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.

Ready for My Close-up
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Double Zero, Jill Frank, Mónika Sziládi

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

In the last half-century, feminism and performativity have influenced contemporary photography more than any other cultural markers. The exhibition title is taken from the exit line of Sunset Boulevard, a film which questions female identity issues, the rehearsal of the self, the gaze of the viewer and the use of the theatrical to command attention, all influenced by culture and all features of this group exhibition.

Double Zero - the collective duo of Hannah Ireland and Annie Vought - investigates how identity is shaped in interpersonal relationships. Their video Cha cha cha changes – and its accompanying still portraiture - document modes of presentation and the performance of the self using simple domestic materials, as the artists recreate each other as sculptures.

Atlanta artist Jill Frank bases her work on the American ideal of romance. Her subject/performers act out gestures of intimacy that resonate in our iconic media framework. The work challenges the industry driven “optimism commodity” of romance.

Monika Sziladi’s seamless collaged photographs investigate the tribalized social sphere of public relations, networking, trade shows and social meet ups: wherever individuals have folded everyday living into a masquerade of the extraordinary. Her images assert that attendance in this society is performance.

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.”

Pace Academy - Fine Arts Center
Featuring work by: Alison Wright

Exhibition: Tue, Oct 1, to Thu, Oct 31 2013

Journey around the world with National Geographic photographer, Alison Wright, as she captures the universal human spirit through her photographs. Ms. Wright, a New York based documentary photographer, has spent a career capturing the universal human spirit through her photographs and writing. A recipient of the Dorothea Lange Award in Documentary Photography for her work with child labor in Asia, Alison travels to the remotest regions of the globe photographing endangered cultures and people while covering issues concerning the human condition for many of her projects. The photos from her latest book, "Face to Face: Portraits of the Human Spirit," portrays the indomitable spirit that lives within us all.

Wright's photography has been published in a number of National Geographic books and publications, Outside, Islands, Smithsonian Magazine, American Photo, Natural History, Time and The New York Times. Wright's life was nearly cut short during a horrific bus accident on a remote jungle road in Laos and her recent memoir, "Learning to Breathe: One Woman's Journey of Spirit and Survival," chronicles her inspirational story of survival, years of rehabilitation, and ongoing determination to recover and continue to travel the world as an intrepid photojournalist.

Panel Discussion: Feminist and Performative Practices vis a vis “Ready for My Close-up”
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Double Zero, Jill Frank, Mónika Sziládi, Wendy Vogel

Panel Discussion: Sat, Oct 5, 12pm - 2pm

Perhaps no two tendencies have influenced contemporary photography more than feminism and performativity. Over the last half-century, artists informed by feminism have critically questioned traditional gender roles, modes of representation, the position of the photographic subject and the dominating photographic gaze. The theory of performativity, elaborated by philosophers like Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and Judith Butler, asserts that gender, along with other markers of identity, are social constructions. In other words, rather than fixed or natural categories, gender, sexuality and identity must be continuously “performed” in everyday life through actions such as dress, grooming and mannerisms. The artists in this exhibition do not represent a fixed or naturalized category of female-ness; rather, they consider the reiteration of gender and identity and its slippages.

In this panel discussion, the exhibiting artists — Jill Frank, Hannah Ireland and Annie Vought (Double Zero) and Mónika Sziládi — will discuss how identity is “performed” in their works through gestures like masquerade, intimate exchanges between couples, posing for pictures and reiterative speech. Wendy Vogel, Associate Editor at Modern Painters, will moderate the conversation.
