Artists Atelier of Atlanta

Exhibition: Wed, Oct 1, to Fri, Oct 31 2014

The Artists Atelier of Atlanta has extended a special invitation to the Atlanta Artists Center Photography Salon, to honor the artistic talents of this award-winning group of amateur and professional photographers.

This show is dedicated to the long-standing volunteer work of Ruth Gogel, who is a member of Artists Atelier of Atlanta and one of the early proponents of starting the Photography Salon at the Atlanta Artists Center. She is also an accomplished, award-winning photographer.

The Artists Atelier of Atlanta is a working artists' studio and gallery where local Georgia painters, sculptors, photographers and any other visual artists come to create, display and sell their works of art to emerging and advanced collectors. The Atelier was started by well-known Atlanta artist, Ouida Canaday in 1985 and was the first artist co-op in Atlanta.

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 4, to Fri, Oct 31 2014

The eyes are the windows to the soul and if you peer within you can see a person's truth. A photograph. like the eyes, can reflect a photographer's soul. Each image a direct link to the psyche. How does one view the world? How is life reflected through the lens? What does one want the world to know, see or think about them? How does what one photographs reflect life, feelings and spirit?

In this exhibit, Sistagraphy invites you to peer into the psyche of our membership. Look deeply within our images. The images you see on these walls speak louder than any artist talk. Tread carefully, the soul is a very vulnerable place.

Opening Reception: Sat, Oct 4, 2pm - 4pm
