Life, Jazz and Lots of Other Things
Gallery 1600
Featuring work by: Sam Nhlengethwa

Exhibition: Wed, Jul 23, to Fri, Oct 17 2014

"Life, Jazz and Lots of Other Things" travels to SCAD Atlanta from the SCAD Museum of Art, where it premiered earlier this year as Sam Nhlengethwa’s first solo museum exhibition in the U.S. Based in Johannesburg, Nhlengethwa is revered as one of South Africa’s leading contemporary artists.

Curated by Laurie Ann Farrell, SCAD executive director of exhibitions, the show features a broad cross section of the artist’s practice and themes. The show opens with a juxtaposition of works by Nhlengethwa and Romare Bearden, orienting viewers to a significant creative voice for the artist.

The exhibition also features vibrant jazz scenes, images of daily life and nation building, along with iconic works that touch on deep social issues. Paintings, installation, works on paper and tapestries provide insight into Nhlengethwa’s worldview through the eclectic array of life, jazz and lots of other things.

Urban Abstractions
steve mckenzie's
Featuring work by: Steve McKenzie, Linda Omelianchuk

Opening Reception: Thu, Oct 2, 5pm - 8pm

To celebrate the opening of the Omelianchuk and McKenzie show, viewers will be encouraged to participate by contributing their marks to a new urban work of art.

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 2, to Wed, Nov 5 2014

Urban Abstractions

Omelianchuk and McKenzie explore photographic interpretations of art and design discovered exploring urban industrial landscapes. Traveling the world together and alone the duo have been inspired by the art created by others in the city landscape. Omelianchuk brings her highly editorial eye to the lens and captures moments, otherwise missed by most. McKenzie documents 2 years of passing boxcar tag art, captured with his iPhone behind his showroom here in Atlanta's westside and presented in graphic details of the original pieces. The dialogue between the two artists' works makes the viewer stop and notice that which otherwise goes unnoticed in the busy urban hustle of life.

Topophilia: Genius Loci
Arnall Golden Gregory
Featuring work by: Stephanie Dowda

Artists Reception: Thu, Oct 2, 6pm - 8pm

Topophilia is a photography project which explores the powerful sensations humans experience from natural environments. Inspired by the geography theory topophilia, as defined by Yi-Fu Tuan, the natural world holds emotions and memories which are experienced by humans. Photographer Stephanie Dowda intentionally manipulated her medium format film camera to become a vessel to capture the sensation from natural places like state and natural parks which preserve the land’s history. Topophilia seeks to understand these intangible sensations and share them through a transference of energy and elements from place, to film, and finally to the silver that holds light for the viewer.

Exhibition: Fri, Aug 15, to Fri, Nov 14 2014

CANCELLED: In the Spirit of the Masters

THIS EXHIBITION HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

A good part of what we do comes from the admiration we hold for the work of others. "Why would you want to come here," Harry Callahan asked at my graduate program interview at RISD in 1972. "To continue" was my answer, meaning the work I had already started. Harry liked that. He wasn't there to help us find our way, but to guide and help shape it.

Teaching from the precision of his own work as much as its purpose, it’s no wonder it took eight feet to fill his two shoes when he left for sabbatical one semester. Ken Josephson came first, encouraging process as the maker of magic. Frederick Sommer’s words landed on a runway deep in the mind, while Garry Winogrand got right to the point as he slid back my stack of photographs, having lifted but one for a peek off the top. “Why don’t you pick up a paintbrush?” Thank God Lisette Model, in her black dress and thick high heels, had come a month before or Winogrand’s paintbrush might have pierced my heart. Being the European Lisette Model was, she likely gravitated to the surreal improbability she saw in the work.

Artist’s statements are written on the images of the artists we admire most. They can help us decide what to do but also what not to do. Jerry Uelsmann’s multiple images inspired me to create his effects without using his techniques, while Diane Arbus, who left the world a week or so before she would have become my first teacher ever at a workshop called Apeiron, still teaches from the images wherein she surely now lives. But it was Ralph Gibson’s images that had the greatest influence, confirming in his work a line I had written for Minolta cameras before ever becoming a photographer: What happens inside your mind can happen inside a camera. Robert Frank also hit the nail on the head. He too, like Harry, shot from the heart.

ACP Opening Party & Teen Spirit Exhibition
Pace Academy - Fine Arts Center

Opening Reception: Thu, Oct 2, 6:30pm - 8:30pm

ACP's collaborative program with inpatient teens at Scottish Rite and Egleston hospitals has impacted participants beyond everyone’s expectations. Volunteer photographers have been leading teens through writing and self- portraiture at a critical time of their lives, when they're exploring their identity (whether it includes, or is in reaction to their diagnosis).

Our kick-off event for #acpfest will be at Pace Academy. Come celebrate with us as we feature an exhibition (and video) of the portraiture and writing created by teens in this very special program.

Thanks to Pace Academy and Charlotte Dixon; Corinne Adams and Child Life Specialists; Showcase and Digital Art Studio.

This exhibition will be open through October 31.

Exhibition: Thu, Oct 2, to Fri, Oct 31 2014
