Wynn Bullock: Revelations
High Museum of Art
Featuring work by: Wynn Bullock

Exhibition: Sat, Jun 14, to Sun, Jan 18 2015

Wynn Bullock: Revelations offers an unprecedented look at one of the mid-twentieth-century's most significant photographers. The show traces Bullock’s innovative career, from his early experimental work of the 1940s, through the mysterious black-and-white imagery of the 1950s and color light abstractions of the 1960s, to his late metaphysical photographs of the 1970s. Working in the American modernist tradition alongside Edward Weston, Harry Callahan, and Ansel Adams, Bullock garnered enormous acclaim during his lifetime, but the breadth of his career has remained largely in the shadows until now. The High is the first major museum in 40 years to mount a retrospective of his work.

Artists Talk: Fri, Oct 10, 7pm

Wynn Bullock Family Conversation

Photographer Wynn Bullock’s daughters, Barbara Bullock-Wilson and Lynne Harrington-Bullock, engage in a conversation about their father’s rich legacy. Moderated by the High’s Keough Family Curator of Photography and Head of Collections, Brett Abbott, the discussion will weave together intimate family memories with insightful stories behind the works currently on view in the High’s exhibition Wynn Bullock: Revelations.

ACP Public Art: THE FENCE
Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail

Exhibition: Fri, Aug 15, to Sat, Nov 1

This acclaimed ACP program typically features temporary projects in a variety of diverse locations throughout Atlanta. It is significant in its ability to reach beyond the audience of traditional art venues and for its ability to expand the way its audience considers and perceives photography and “lens-based” media.

This year ACP is bringing THE FENCE project to Atlanta in a 1st-time partnership between ACP, United Photo Industries (of NY) and the Atlanta BeltLine. The Fence 2014 is an outdoor exhibition of images juried from an international call for entries. This year the FENCE will be simultaneously exhibited in three locations: Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York, NY; Rose F. Kennedy Greenway in Boston, MA; and on The Atlanta Beltline, where there'll be a 600-foot long installation!

Animalia: Photographs by Anne Berry
The Lamar Dodd Art Center
Featuring work by: Anne Berry

Exhibition: Mon, Aug 18, to Mon, Nov 10

Anne’s photography of animals “vehemently avoids the high resolution color aesthetic of zoological photography, opting instead for a gaze evocative of early pictorialists, who strived to render the photographic distinctly unscientific and launched the then novel medium of photography into the realm of fine art. Within Berry’s jarringly ghostly and ethereal tones, each subject reveals a soulfulness so often hidden in photographs of animals; their struggle is urgently expressionistic, spiritual, dignified, and human”(Ellyn Ruddick-Sunstein, The Plight of Primates in Captivity, Beautiful Decay, 02/28/14).

This exhibit will feature animal portraits from the south and around the world. Behind Glass is a series of photographs and wet plate collodian tintypes made in monkey houses of small mostly European zoos. Also on exhibit are Anne’s photographs and photogravures of southern animals: wild, feral, and domesticated.

Reception, artist talk and book signing in October, date and time TBA.

Xchange Gallery at The Arts Exchange
Featuring work by: The Arts Exchange Studio Artists

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 12, 7pm - 9pm

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 12, to Sat, Oct 25

Photography +

Photography+ exhibits the work of the multicultural, multidisciplinary, inter-generational studio artists at the Arts Exchange, a community cultural center in southeast Atlanta, serving the arts community for 30 years.

Traditional photographic mediums, mixed mediums using photographic techniques and other art mediums not using photography but responding to the idea of photography will create a visual dialogue between the works, essentially addressing the question of photography as simply another tool for artists or a separate means of expression.

This is also the annual studio artists exhibit of the Arts Exchange which has chosen the theme of photography to focus on the studio photographers while challenging traditional and conceptual artists to thoughtfully and visually engage in an exploration of how photography impacts art.

Artists participating in the exhibit include Jim Alexander, John Brandhorst, Marc Brotherton, Connie Cross, Craig Drennen, Elyse Defoor, Phyllis Free, Ben Goldman, Dana Gray, Anna Hamer, Billy Howard, Laura Kearney, Mark Leibert, Laurie Shock, Preston Thomas, and Lisa Tuttle.

In addition to the Opening Reception and Artist's Talk, the Arts Exchange will host an Open House and studio tours on Sunday, September 21, from 2 to 6pm.

New Meanings, New Stories: A Photographic Exploration of Found Objects by Gail Foster
R Alexander Fine Art
Featuring work by: Gail Foster

Exhibition: Mon, Sep 15, to Sat, Nov 1

New Meanings, New Stories features Gail Foster’s transformation of found-object sculptures into a visual language. As an artist who is continually interested in materiality and both physical and spiritual presence, Foster’s photographic series captures the reinvention of everyday objects and art-making materials into new ideas. The viewer is left reconsidering meanings tied to specific objects while becoming more aware of subjective space. Thus, these ephemeral sculptures are not only “environmental” given Foster’s use of recycled materials and low-VOC acrylic paints, but also in terms of their awareness of the influences of time and place. The photographs reveal forms that can be characterized as lyrical, poetic, and dark, like a Greek tragedy, but the beauty of it all is that only the viewer can tell the story.

Featuring work by: Steve Aishman

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 18, to Mon, Oct 27

STEVE AISHMAN (b.1975, Michigan) – Love comes in many colors. So do love notes. Steve Aishman’s work displays a permanent state of romance where shopping lists convey as much love as a sonnet. People don’t send love letters anymore, but they send text acronyms like personal coded messages. DM Me CILU. In the series The Aishmans, Steve displays the latest of the 16 years worth of daily notes that he has written to his wife. Also on display are Aishman’s photographs of frozen moments of domesticity that are allegories for the passions we all find in the everyday existence we share with loved ones.

Aishman graduated from Princeton with an AB in Astrophysics in 1997 and received his MFA from the Museum School in 2001. He has received numerous awards for his work and most recently had a solo show at he prestigious JCCAC in Hong Kong.

Animals and Interiors/Birds of a Feather
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Claire Rosen

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 18, to Mon, Oct 27

CLAIRE ROSEN (b.1983 New Jersey)- Known as a photographer whose whimsical imagery is inspired by fairy tales and fables, Rosen presents birds that are posed against complimentary vintage wallpaper. The resulting optical illusion of visual blending is reminiscent of Victorian Optical Illusion Postcards in which the image of the bird can either be seen as a flat part of the wallpaper or as bird posing in front of the wallpaper. 
The visual relationship presented in the series between birds and wallpaper serves as the beginning of a discussion about how people see themselves in their environment. Some of the birds appear to be posing, as people would, to try and stand out from their surroundings and draw attention. Other birds turn their back to the camera and seem to want to use the wallpaper to camouflage themselves out of the center of attention. In both case, Birds of a Feather opens a dialog about the relationships between animals, humans and interior design.

Claire graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2006 with a BFA in photography. She received a liberal arts AA degree from Bard College at Simon's Rock in 2003. Claire has won numerous awards for her work and in both 2012 and 2013, Claire was included in the Forbes 30 Brightest under 30 list for Art and Design.

Animals and Interiors/Stories
Hagedorn Foundation Gallery
Featuring work by: Guillermo Srodek-Hart

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 18, to Mon, Oct 27

GUILLERMO SRODEK-HART – (b.1977, Argentina) drives deep into the Argentine countryside to tell human stories by pointing his camera at the spaces where people have lived and worked on a timescale and agenda separate from the familiar, contemporary urban life. Srodek-Hart’s images speak to authentic lives, as the large-format images are filled with traces of human presence, built-up over decades. The interiors of bicycle shops, bars, restaurants-on-the-side-of-the-road, butcher shops and other places where time seems to have stopped reveal both visible and invisible elements.

Stories is an inherently collaborative project as Srodek-Hart speaks with the owners of the spaces and shares with them his stories. When asked, “Why aren’t there any people in your photographs?’ he answers ‘Look closely, they are all over the place.’ Ultimately, his images of interior spaces become a metaphor for the transience of all human existence and the stories we leave behind.

Guillermo graduated from School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2004 with a BFA in photography and he received his MFA from Mass College of Art in 2008. Guillermo has received numerous awards for his work and his work has exhibited internationally, most notably in the 55th Venice Biennale. Curated by Heidi Aishman.
