Lucinda Bunnen – Artist’s Talk at Swan Coach House, Thursday, 7pm

February 11th, 2015
Lucinda Bunnen's "A Collection of Collections" show at Swan Coach House Gallery will be having an artist's talk on Thursday, Feb. 12th at 7pm. Lucinda will be talking with Brett Abbott, Donald and Marilyn Keough Family Curator of Photography at the High Museum of Art.

Virginie Kippelen reviewed the show yesterday on ARTSatl.com.

"Although her collection of cameras — a large photograph of dozens of them, old and new, acquired over 45 years — takes center stage here, many of the collections, like the Hawaiian souvenirs, are mundane objects. There are beads in all shapes and colors; pine cones, large and small; heart-shaped stones; shells from everywhere.

A vast display of artifacts complements the photos on the gallery walls. A couple of ceramic cows stand by the photograph of her miniature-cow collection (Bunnen grew up on a farm)."

"Out of Fashion from Acclaimed Photographer Landon Nordeman

Described by New York Magazine’s The Cut as their “backstage photographer extraordinaire,” Nordeman was dispatched to photograph fashion weeks in New York, Milan and Paris during September 2014. During three intense weeks—and through more than 100 shows—his photographs, which Instagram described on their blog, as “reminiscent of Martin Parr and Guy Bourdin,” documented the high-paced chaos of all that surrounds the catwalks. His images, exhibited here for the first time, are comprised of surprising moments and juxtapositions and are filled with color.

Nordeman will returning for an Instagram panel on fine art, fashion and this popular social medium in March, date TBD. For the Out of Fashion series, Nordeman shot the Fall 2014 international fashion shows, and this exhibition will offer the highlights from his magical, bitingly stylish eye."

Steve Schapiro & Andrew Moore – Artist’s Talks on Saturday at Jackson Fine Art

January 22nd, 2015
One of the best media moments surrounding Selma's release this fall was a spread of photographs from Steve Schapiro in The New Yorker highlighting the march from Selma to Montgomery. schapiro There's been so much great press about Selma, regardless of whether or not the Academy honors the achievements of Ava DuVernay, David Oyelowo, or even Bradford Young who'll miss-out at the Oscars (unless, against odds, Selma wins Best Picture.) When you see the film, you might recognize Marietta Square as one of the stand-in locations.

And as the world awaits the 50th Anniversary of Bloody Sunday on March 7th, Atlantans are lucky to have Steve Schapiro's photographs at Jackson Fine Art. More importantly, he'll be giving an Artist's Talk about his work on Saturday, January 24th. He'll be joined by Andrew Moore, who'll be speaking about his exhibition "The South", and there will also be photographs from Gordon Parks on view.

As of Thursday, Jan. 22nd, the New York Times still has not found/discovered the identity of the two women in the Parks photograph from 1956. jfa_2

And to cram three blogposts into one, Danny Lyon, who gave a memorable artist's talk during ACP 2008, wrote a letter to the editor of The New Yorker about his friend (and our Congressman) which appeared in this week's issue.

28th Annual Push Pin Show at APG Gallery – February 13th

January 21st, 2015
"28th Annual Push Pin Show Scheduled for February 13 at APG Gallery – Vote for Best In Show!

Have you ever thought you might have the opportunity to have your images hung in the same gallery with renowned fellow photographers? The annual APG Push Pin Show is the occasion you’ve been waiting for! Every year the gallery, home to numerous critically acclaimed exhibitions, and adjacent to MOCA-GA in the Tula Arts Center building, opens its doors to existing and new members, allotting each artist approximately a 600 square inch space (about 20 inches by 30 inches), to display their work. Images may not be matted or framed, and may be priced for sale. Image dimensions are up to the artists – perhaps one large image, or maybe several smaller images, as long as the 600 square inch image space allotment is not exceeded.

New for this year – all attendees will be able to vote for their favorite photographs. At the end of the evening, the two artists receiving most votes will be announced as the winners of the People’s Choice Award. Winning artists will also be featured in APG’s March exhibition, Choice 2015. In addition, we are thrilled to have “Suburban Angst” back to play live music, mostly modern rock favorites and deeper cuts, in the atrium during the show! Talented photographer Tom Meyer will be making portraits on site at no charge with a gift print to take home.

This event is free to current members, and to photographers who join APG on the night of the show. Guests who would like to just come and hang out, enjoy the gallery, music, beer, wine, and pizza are welcome for a $10 entry fee. Only APG members can pin up prints. The annual APG membership fee is $35 ($25 for students).

Staff will be checking in members at 7pm in the Atrium. Doors open at 7:30, 75 Bennett Street, Suite B-1. Please visit the APG website for further details at: atlantaphotographygroup.org

Beth Lilly Opens at Whitespace, Friday, Jan. 9th

"Please join us Friday, January 9th for the opening of A Moving Image of Eternity by Beth Lilly | 7 - 10 pm A Moving Image of Eternity begins with a question: Where are you now? Without time, existence is meaningless because life is based on change and change requires the fourth dimension. Artist Beth Lilly continues her exploration into the role of choice when helping shape our personal and cultural identities. In this exhibition, Lilly presents three related series of photographs each based on time’s subjective nature. All three use the interstate as their “vehicle” to offer fresh perspectives during this metaphorical journey, making choices while navigating events of chance and circumstance. The series is titled: Driven, Lost In Thought and The Passenger. A photographic mixologist, Beth Lilly plays with context to speculate on the interplay of choice, chance and circumstance. Her critically acclaimed performance/interactive project “The Oracle @ WiFi” was published by Kehrer Verlag in 2012. Recent exhibitions include the New Mexico Museum of Art, the Center for Fine Art Photography, MOCA GA, Zuckerman Museum, and the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center. A Hambidge Fellow, she received grants from Society for Photographic Education and Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Her work resides in the permanent collections of the High Museum, The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, MOCA GA and others. Lilly earned a MFA in Photography from Georgia State University and an A.B.J. in film from the University of Georgia. Exhibition Dates: January 9 - February 14"
