“Director’s Cut” at APG – Aug 26th-Oct 3rd

August 26th, 2015
Debra Jansen,

APG has a new exhibition up today, with the opening reception on Friday, Sept. 25th!

Director's Cut

APG Gallery presents “Director’s Cut,” a group exhibition of photography that varies widely in technique and content, but share cinematic sensibilities. The 29 artists in this exhibition clearly have a story to tell but ultimately leave the viewer to imagine and speculate; posing questions rather than revealing answers.

The exhibition will run from August 26th to October 3 - the gallery is open Wednesday - Saturday 12-4pm. The reception will be on Friday, September 25th, 7:30 -9:30 pm. Curator Beth Lilly gives a talk at the gallery the following day, Saturday, September 26, from 2-3pm.

Location: APG Gallery 75 Bennett St B1, Atlanta GA 30309

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

June 9th, 2015
"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."
