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

Exhibition: Mon, Aug 18, to Mon, Nov 10 2014

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.

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 2014

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.

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

2014 Jurors' Talk

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.

Relics, Ruins and Artifacts
A Novel Experience
Featuring work by: Meryl Truett

Opening Reception: Fri, Sep 19, 5pm - 7pm

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 19, to Fri, Oct 31 2014

Relics, Ruins and Artifacts

A Novel Experience presents our 2014 SlowExposures guest photographer, Meryl Truett in a satellite show entitled "Relics, Ruins and Artifacts". The series documents the romantic terrain of the South Carolina and Georgia coasts. The images are unabashedly nostalgic and evocative of another time, blending architectural elements from several eras. Meryl's work is often described as "Southern Gothic" and to some extent, the subject matter and the gritty, elegiac feel of the process bear that out. But, it is the tension between the past and the present that permeates the imagery. The pieces in the series are photographic transfers on antique ceiling tiles coupled with architectural elements rescued from historic homes and buildings in the process of renovation or demolition.
