5 Days Left to Participate in ACP 2016

20160527_Kelly_Kristin_Jones_900w

If you're an artist or venue interested in participating in ACP 2016 this October, you have 5 days left to list your event or exhibition in the ACP Festival Guide.

Start your ACP Festival Guide listing today!

(The deadline for participating in ACP 2016 is June 30th.)

Here are the details:
Festival Guide Intro (includes pricing)
Participate as a Venue
Participate as an Artist

To list your event, you'll need a description of your event, addresses, dates & times associated with your venue, and a 1000 pixel-wide JPG for both your web and print listing. The base listing price is unchanged this year ($160) and remains a great value for reaching the photo-loving audience of the Southeast.

Your listing will be printed in 12,000 Festival Guides and distributed across the Atlanta-metro area, plus it will be available on our dedicated website for the festival, and also in our iPhone app - all of which will be marketed nationally!

As a photographer, you might wonder what it would be like to have your work seen rather than take-up space on your hard drive or portfolio box. As a retail shop, corporation or gallery, you might want to activate your walls with great photography and host an event. The Festival is a great way to get involved and join photography's month-long transformation of Atlanta into a coordinated cultural experience.

Danny Lyon’s new exhibition at The Whitney

It's always fun to keep track of photographers who've passed through Atlanta, or have presented during the Festival. Danny Lyon gave a riveting artist talk at Woodruff Arts Center in 2008, and has a new exhibition opening in New York this weekend.

It's great to see that the working relationship forged between Mr. Lyon and Julian Cox has persisted and flourished beyond Atlanta. A good read from Jonathan Blaustein:

"'I was in Atlanta, this is where his journey began as a photographer,' Mr. Cox said. 'He was a young kid, really, in his early 20s. He was entrusted to get out there and make a record of these various public protests, marches, and demonstrations on a variety of different issues. Voting rights, segregation, et cetera.'"

"In this podcast I want to talk about other reasons why we should be interested (in photography) that have nothing to do with money and economics."

Eric Pickersgill’s TEDx Talk

Eric Pickersgill's work was the talk of the ACP 2015 Portfolio Review, and it's great to see his "REMOVED" project become an exhibition. Here's an artist's talk about his work at TEDxBend "Do Our Devices Divide Us?"


"Artist Pickergill's photography series, Removed, went viral and touched a collectively universal nerve. He makes visible what so many have tried to explain about the ways personal devices alter human behavior, helping us relearn how to be truly connected in our device-dominated age.

Artist and change agent, Eric Pickersgill, explores the psychological and social effects that cameras and their artifacts have on individuals and societies as a whole. His viral photography series, Removed, has made visible what so many have tried to explain about the ways personal devices alter human behavior. We live in a time where the line between the real and virtual is nearly invisible. The use of personal devices is so common that the terms in which we use them is no longer discussed. Despite the accelerated proliferation of digital photographs, art still has the power to shape perspectives and alter habits. Eric is represented by Rick Wester Fine Art in NY and is on the Executive Board of Directors at The Light Factory."
