Photographs from Joeff Davis (top image), John Glenn, Tim Redman (above), Renee Brock, David Tulis, Rachel Parrish, Ramon Taylor, Stephen Morton, Lesley Ann Price, Lindsey Lingenfelter & Chris Hunt exploring poverty in Georgia will be on display at Colony Square for the month of August. There will be an opening reception on Tuesday, August 5 at 5:00-7:30 p.m.

“Some 1.8 million Georgians currently live below the federal poverty level. Despite these large numbers, too often the plight of the most unfortunate among us is hidden or simply ignored.

That’s why St. Vincent de Paul Georgia has launched “Profiles in Poverty,” a photography exhibit that chronicles the plight of Georgia’s most vulnerable populations. The Kickstarter-funded exhibit features photos from the state’s most talented photojournalists, including John Glenn, David Tulis, Joeff Davis, Stephen Morton, Chris Hunt, Tim Redman and more.

The exhibit depicts the issues affecting the poor, including homelessness, hunger, healthcare accessibility, homebound seniors and unemployment. Despite the seriousness of the subject matter, the exhibit captures the indomitable spirit of many in tough situations, their moments of hope in the midst of despair.

The gallery will be on display at Colony Square for the month of August. We invite you to the opening reception event on Tuesday, August 5 at 5:00-7:30 p.m.”

“Award-winning Atlanta artist David Foster has been named the 2014 recipient of the P.C. Turczyn Award. Part of the Celebrating the Healing Power of Art exhibit sponsored by Manhattan Arts International, the P.C. Turczyn Award is:

“given to an artist whose work makes a significant contribution to the [healing power of art] field, either by identifying key elements that characterize efficacious healing artwork and using it in their art practice, and/or by intuitively producing extraordinary and beautiful artwork with a marked beneficial effect.”

David was selected from among a group of fifty international artists chosen to participate in the Manhattan Arts International exhibit. His nature photography has won additional awards from the Georgia Nature Photographers Association, Nature Undisturbed, and the Southeastern Flower Show.

You can view David’s award-winning photography at his current 25-image exhibit, “Uplifted in the Moment,” on display at the Atlanta Friends Meeting, 701 West Howard Avenue in Decatur. There will be an Artist Reception open to all on Friday, June 13, 2014 between 5:30 and 8:00pm. The exhibit is open to the public Sunday through Friday mornings between 9:00 and noon through July 15, 2014.
David’s images have been part of more than over 50 exhibitions – including solo, juried and group shows – in the Southeast and beyond. His photographs are held in private and public collections across the United States and internationally. His image, “Jekyll Island Dawn,” is part of the Picturing Georgia exhibit in the International Terminal at the Atlanta Airport.

The international juried exhibit Gardens in Focus at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, Australia has selected David’s work for three years in a row, including the images “Aquatic Fractals” and “Waterlily Alchemy” for their June 2014 exhibit. Both images are included in his current exhibit.

South by Southeast photomagazine features ten of his botanical images in its May-June 2014 issue, “Flora and Fauna of the Southeast.” Several of these images are also in his current exhibit.
