SlowExposures Photography Festival
R. F. Strickland Center

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 19, to Sun, Sep 28 2014

During the last two weekends of September, SlowExposures Photography Festival welcomes visitors from across the United States to experience the rural American South through the medium of fine art photography. For our twelfth season, Jurors Alexa Dillworth and Aline Smithson have chosen 70 images from over 1,000 entries that seek to interpret this most unique region. Visitors can visit satellite shows that range from lively "Pop-Ups" that feature individual and group collections, cutting-edge seminars, book signings, and events that invite lively dialogue between photographers and the public.
Although Pike County is only an hour from Atlanta's Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, visitors will encounter a rolling, verdant landscape where once, "Cotton was King". To add context to the images, the shows are displayed in late nineteenth century buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. This "sense of place" makes for an experience filled with shared, serendipitous moments where the energy is infectious and the conversations in front of the work, thought-provoking. Visitors may participate in our 2014 Push Pin show "Humans of Pike", enjoy the "Supper at Strickland's", Juror Talk, Opening Reception, The Do Good Collection at the Whiskey Bonding Barn and more events throughout the event.

Other: Sun, Sep 21, 11am - 12pm

The Do Good Fund Collection: Passages

The satellite exhibition features work from The Do Good Fund collection curated by Constance Lewis of Houston, Texas. Passages presents a thoughtfully composed imaging of the South, to the South. Each of the twenty-eight images hanging at the Whiskey Bonding Barn is a trove of discrete photographic facts, of possibilities that encourage a closer look at the contemporary Southern landscape. This selection of images juxtaposes artists working in different photographic processes, all starting from different premises, though each uniquely addresses some peculiar aspect of a region we might've thought all too familiar. Join us for the Opening Reception on Saturday, September 21 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Barn in Molena.

Confessions for a Son
R. F. Strickland Center
Featuring work by: McNair Evans

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 19, to Sun, Sep 28 2014

This latest culmination of McNair Evans's projects, "Confessions for a Son," combines the artist's photographs with images taken by his father and found by McNair in his journey for answers, as well as reinterpreted paraphernalia such as displaced checks collected from his father's insolvent business and printed like sacred negatives through a mural enlarger. All of these pieces coalesce in an empathetic portrait of a man and an emotionally complex family heritage.

McNair Evans was the winner of the inaugural Paul Conlan Prize for first place at the 2013 SlowExposures. His exhibition will be held this year at SlowExposures and will be presented at the Strickland Center in Concord, Georgia.
