port_review_900
The ACP Portfolio Review and Walk on Saturday, Oct. 10th at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center offers photographers the rare opportunity to meet one-on-one with highly respected curators, dealers, editors, and agency representatives from across the United States and beyond.

The Portfolio Walk (following the review sessions) gives Review participants the opportunity to present their work to the general public at a filled-to-the brim, casual, evening reception, open to all.

We consider our small portfolio review event to be a boutique experience, offering a high-quality environment for both reviewer(s) and photographer(s). Each photographer gets a minimum of 5 twenty-minute reviews as well as opportunities to meet with Roving VIP Reviewers throughout the day to increase your chances of being discovered. There is a secure, dedicated space for photographers to rest and mingle between reviews,plus, food and beverage service throughout the day is included!

This year we'll also be offering two workshops (both with limited seats available and minimal sign-up fee) one before the reviews on Friday, Oct. 9th, with Aline Smithson "Preparing for Portfolio Reviews", and one after the reviews on Sunday, Oct. 11th, with David Bram & Jennifer Schwartz "Taking Advice to the Next Level: What to do After your Portfolio Review".

Registration opens on this page at Noon (EST) on Wednesday, July 22nd!

Lucinda Bunnen in The Huffington Post

Here's a new piece about Lucinda Bunnen's recent exhibition at Marcia Wood Gallery: "Nature Adds a Psychedelic Spin to Lucinda Bunnen's Photography" by Sally Hansell.

"Then Bunnen put hundreds of slides on her deck and forgot about them. Three weeks later, when her gutters were being cleaned, she found the images transformed."

Map of ACP 2015 Venues

While the deadline for ACP 2015 listings passed last night, this morning we were able to draw a preliminary map of venues for this year's Festival.

We were curious! We'll have a more interactive (and useful) version of this map later this summer, but here's a rough sketch of ACP's impact across the Atlanta-metro area this fall. Can't wait!

"A reception will be held at the Atlanta Photography Group Gallery to remember Virginia’s life, her work and her contribution to the arts in Atlanta on Wednesday, July 1, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Tula Art Center, Space B-1, 75 Bennett St., Atlanta, 30309"
Check out this interview Beate Sass did with Virginia a few years ago:
"On a recent visit to see Virginia, she was looking out her third-story window watching the strong wind blow the oak tree branches to and fro and she commented on that beauty."

Lydia Harris at AARL Satellite Gallery, through Aug. 23rd

"The View From Collier Heights: a photographic exhibition by photographer Lydia A. Harris. This stunning exhibit and art book documents the Collier Heights community located in Northwest Atlanta, Georgia. As the photographs explore mid-century modern architecture, the intimacy of the artist’s experience unfolds, as intricate interiors are revealed. Taken between 2010 and 2014, the photographs pay tribute to a community that served as the cultural and economic cornerstone of Atlanta’s black middleclass and was instrumental to the regional Civil Rights Movement."

Jane Kerr – Artist Talk on Saturday at APG

Jane Kerr will be talking about her exhibition “Yesterday and Today: Paintings and Photographs”, at APG this Saturday, June 13th from 2-3pm.

"Jane Kerr began her art career at an age when most people are retiring. Her photographs document her native Mississippi. Her paintings mischievously draw correlations between the oppression of women in Tibet and India as well as the Southern United States."
