Mary Anne Mitchell Exhibition in Niceville, FL

Atlanta-based photographer Mary Anne Mitchell has an exhibition opening in Florida on May 23rd at Holzhauer Gallery.

"May 23 – July 16 Holzhauer Gallery Mary Anne Mitchell, Meet Me in My Dreams

In the Holzhauer Gallery will be Meet Me in My Dreams, an exhibition of works by Mary Anne Mitchell, an Atlanta-based Artist. Meet Me in My Dreams explores the relationship between visual art and the written word through original poetry and a collection of photographs.

Mitchell creates her images using long exposures, wet plate collodion, and digital scanning. Wet plate collodion involves preparing a glass plate with collodion (a chemical solution) and shooting the photograph directly onto the plate. The process was developed in the 1850s and quickly became popular because it produced a multi-use glass negative; it remained the primary means of photography through the 1880s.

Mitchell uses this traditional process to shoot long-exposure photographs that create movement and give the images an ethereal atmosphere. She then scans these plates and prints them on a larger scale to intensify the organic characteristics inherent in the process. The exhibition of Mitchell’s black-and-white dreamscapes will include both plates and prints.

Visitors to the Holzhauer Gallery will even have the opportunity to experience Mitchell’s work as one might have in the 19th century: included in the exhibition are several stereoscopic viewers through which the photographs can be experienced in three dimensions.

Mary Anne Mitchell is an Atlanta-based artist whose work is derived from her experiences and visual dreams that move her to create. The images depict situations, often mysterious, which draw the viewer into a narrative. Mitchell’s work, primarily photographs shot using traditional black-and-white processes, has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the United States. Her art can be found in private and corporate collections across the US and Canada.

Meet Me in My Dreams will conclude with a Closing Reception on Saturday, July 16, 6-7:30 pm, where visitors can meet the artist. The Mattie Kelly Arts Center Galleries are open Monday through Friday, 10 AM – 4 PM, and 90 minutes prior to curtain during NWF State College’s summer musical, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. The Galleries are always free and open to the public."

ACP Auction Preview: Ones2Watch – Niv Rozenberg

October 8th, 2014

Niv-Rozenberg-Automonument4

Automonuments | Automonuments #4, 2010 | 30"x45" | Digital C Print
Niv Rozenberg is a Brooklyn based photographer originally from Israel. He holds an MFA in Photography from Parsons, The New School for Design, and is a former recipient of the America-Israel Cultural Foundation scholarship. Recent exhibitions include a solo exhibition at Simon/Neuman² Gallery in Brooklyn, NY, and the 2014 BRIC Biennial. Recent commissions include the Frieze Art Fair New York Campaign. His work has been published in The New York Times, The New Yorker, Tel-Avivian, Greenpointers, among others. Niv uses photography and digital manipulation to explore complexities within the urban environment, emphasizing the tension between form and function to create a new reality.
"My work explores complexities within the urban environment, by focusing on the essential large-scale and unavoidable congestion. In Automonuments I use photography and digital manipulation in order to isolate visual perspectives of high-rise buildings mainly in New York City. This exaggerated view allows me to break the visual and spatial congestion of the city by creating an archetypal form, isolated from function and separated from the city’s total urban structure. Duplicating and stitching one level of a building to another emphasizes the tension between form and function as well as between the individual and the global. This work does not document reality but reconstructs it, creating a view that cannot be seen, an intensification of reality."
