Three Voices Opens at Snapdragon, March 13th

"THREE VOICES Photographs by John Bohannon, Pam Moxley, and Ansley West March 13 – May 1, 2010 Opening Reception: Saturday, March 13, 7-10pm Snapdragon Photography/Jennifer Schwartz Gallery, Atlanta, GA Snapdragon Photography/Jennifer Schwartz Gallery is pleased to announce our latest exhibition, “Three Voices”, featuring photography by Atlanta artists John Bohannon, Pam Moxley, and Ansley West. The conceptual photographs in this exhibit depict intimate scenes and objects which capture each photographer’s unique voice. A party for the artists will be held on Saturday March 13th, from 7 to 10pm, and the exhibition will continue through Saturday May 1st. John Bohannon creates images which capture his encounters with places and things that he feels have emotive potential. The resulting photographs are a collection of moments and memories – a personal experience, both for the photographer and viewer. Bohannon has been included in dozens of juried exhibitions throughout the Southeast, and his work has been featured in Shots magazine and the Florida Review. In 2009, he was one of twelve photographers chosen to participate in Gifted, Atlanta Celebrates Photography’s Public Art Project. Self-taught artist Pam Moxley is the co-owner of Original Art Finders and Curator of Grace Gallery in Marietta, Georgia. She has been featured in numerous solo and juried exhibitions and her work is included in collections throughout the United States, including the Southeast Museum of Photography, the City of Atlanta Collection, and the Atlanta Photography Group’s Collector’s Portfolio. Moxley’s mixed-media images are simple in composition, yet complex in theme. Her work often incorporates child-like elements, giving them a nostalgic and maternal feel. When she is finished with each photographic construction, she utilizes several other media, adding layers of both texture and meaning. Ansley West’s photographic compositions interpret narratives both real and imagined. She often places herself into the photographs, in order to recontextualize these stories. Her work sometimes portrays social issues about which she is passionate. The images selected for this show come from two bodies of work: “Fences” addresses the physical and psychological hurdles we face and how we move past them, while “Landscapes” seeks to show that human connection to the earth can be a symbiotic rather than a parasitic relationship. As well as being included in many group exhibitions across the US and featured in three solo shows, West’s work is included in many private and museum collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. She has recently returned from Uganda, where she shot a documentary film called Mother of a Nation, about women living with HIV and their connection to agriculture.
