"Please join us and High Museum of Art Assistant Curator of Photography Gregory Harris on Thursday evening, November 10 from 6-8pm for a special reception as we present this year's APG/High Museum Purchase Award winner, Nancy Floyd.
Three pieces from Atlanta-based artist Nancy Floyd’s series “Weathering Time” were selected by Brett Abbot, Curator of Photography and Head of Collections at the High Museum of Art for their permanent collection. Significant as a documentary, visual archive, and personal journal, Floyd’s series was also recently awarded the important John Gutman Award.
Each year, in conjunction with its Portfolio Exhibition, APG funds the purchase of works for acquisition into the permanent collection of the High Museum. This year's award crowd-funded in 2015 (yay! thank you!), and going forward, the 2017-18, the award will be jointly funded by the truly generous Ted & Gloria Maloof and Edwin Robinson, who began the program in 2013.
This reception is free and open to the public so let's all come together to support Nancy Floyd's wonderful talent and dedication!" - Facebook Event Page
