Gallery L1 presents Ansley West Rivers and Wenxin Zhang
Gallery L1
Featuring work by: Ansley West Rivers, Wenxin Zhang

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 4, to Thu, Oct 30 2014

Ansley West Rivers and Wenxin Zhang both received her MFA at California College of the Arts. West's series, Racquet and Rose will be exhibited with Zhang's Beast by the Waterfall Guesthouse. In two unique styles their work explores dream space, memory, fears and connections between emotion and place. Zhang creates non-linear photographic novels. In her writings and photography, she describes her experiences of growing up in China, her current life in San Francisco, and her personal relationships. West explores the confusion of time and space. Shooting with a 4x5 film camera her work of layered and distorted portraiture as well as images of the deep south capture a history that lies just beyond reach or understanding. The blurred photographic record has roots in both the physical and emotional landscapes. West's work is influenced by the writings of Roland Barthes and his description of photography as a medium uniquely capable of expressing loss is a perfect way to describe this stunning and surprisingly emotional exhibition.

Opening Reception: Thu, Oct 9, 5pm - 10pm

AAC Photography Salon Juried Show
Atlanta Artists Center

Exhibition: Sat, Oct 4, to Thu, Oct 30 2014

The Atlanta Artists Center Photography Salon includes amateur and professional photographers who regularly achieve juried placements and awards for photographic work that not only "pushes the envelope," but helps define it. This juried show will demonstrate the benefits of striving for artistic expression, while at the same time maintaining a respect for the practice of exacting technological principles. Photographs using traditional processes, new processes and experimental processes will be featured.

The show will be judged by Amy Miller, Executive Director of Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Cash awards and ribbons will be awarded at the reception, October 12, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., and the public is invited to attend. All pieces of artwork will be for sale.

"We have found that the association with a group of outstanding artists in all media, such as those at the Atlanta Artists Center has broadened and nurtured our creativity and challenged our thinking about what is possible with photography. The advent of digital processing has caused the interest in photography to explode as a form of creative expression. It's exciting," said H. Gay Allen, Chairman of the salon.

Photographs submitted for the Embracing Diversity theme should communicate the significance of embracing cultural or religious differences. Photographs should celebrate religious, cultural or ethnic diversity within your community or school and highlight the importance of reaching across cultural, religious or ethnic boundaries. Photographs may communicate the beauty found in the diversity of the Greater Atlanta area. Photographs might portray the people, places and spaces that represent diversity to inspire an audience to embrace diversity and envision an more unified community.
Prizes will be awarded in nine categories, judged by the staff of Creative Loafing.

Photographs must be hung on Saturday, September 27th between 10am and 1pm, and must be picked up on Saturday October 26th between 10am and 1pm.

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

Artists Talk: Sat, Oct 18, 2pm - 4pm

Behind The Lens

Women In Focus is a non-profit artist-initiated organization of women photographers who have joined together to support and promote the photographic arts. It was founded in 1993 by a group of women who recognized the need for a formal network of women photographers who could assist in each others' personal, professional, and artistic growth. Women In Focus has become a thriving organization whose diverse membership includes photographic artists ranging from beginners to seasoned professionals, all brought together by their passion for photography. Women In Focus values each individual member for the unique contributions that she brings to the organization and strives to provide all members with the resources that they need to thrive as artists. Women In Focus is dedicated to facilitating a forum for open dialogue regarding photography in all of its forms. Educational programs address both technical proficiency and scholarship by incorporating lectures, workshops, and critiques and by covering topics relating to the history and business of photography as well as the creation of images. Women In Focus engages in community activity by hosting events all around Atlanta. The scope of the group's activities is further extended past the geographical area of its home base through an Internet presence and joint projects with women photographers around the world.
