Announcing our Honorary Chairpersons for the 2018 ACP Auction Gala!
Laura Adams and Andrew Feiler will add both style and substance to the 2018 festivities. Laura is a nationally exhibited visual artist. Her signature collage technique employs meticulous layering to create seemingly three-dimensional works celebrating themes of nature. Andrew, Laura's husband, is an artistic and documentary photographer. He serves on numerous boards, is active in civic endeavors, and is as a conscientious advisor to elected officials and political candidates.
Together Laura and Andrew opened Brickworks Gallery on the Atlanta BeltLine in late 2016. Featuring the work of over 25 artists, Brickworks Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the work of talented and inspired artists whose work tells compelling stories.
Let's join together and celebrate photography in Atlanta on October 6th! Tickets available soon.
Over the last four years, THE FENCE has showcased some of the world's best photography from an international call for entries (including The FENCE 2017 Juror's Choice winner, Atlanta's own Joshua McFadden).
As the largest public exhibition of photography in North America, THE FENCE will appear simultaneously in eight cities in 2018, including Brooklyn, Boston, Durham, Denver, Santa Fe, Sarasota, and Calgary.
ACP appreciates all the love, support & attention you've given THE FENCE on the Eastside Trail over the last four years. We look forward to showcasing THE FENCE in it's new location as we celebrate ACP's 20th anniversary this October!
Please fill out this form to let us know if you can help find THE FENCE a new home!

"Recently the President of Gwinnett Technical College, Dr. Glen Cannon, announced the termination of the Photography program. There was no indication it was coming, nor why it happened. It is our hope that with enough signatures the school board will reconsider the decision. This program is a wonderful program that has produced 100's of talented artist, many of whom are well known in the their field. Please sign this petition to stand with us and save not only the Photography Program at Gwinnett Tech, but to help remind people how important the arts and creativity are to the world."
"Photography has never been more accessible than it is now given the proliferation of cell phones. But camera in hand does not a skilled photographer make. The technical skill and knowledge required to master photography make a program like this critical. Please, GTC, reconsider this devastating and shameful decision. - Debbie S."
"This is a solid program with a great track record and legacy. Supporting the arts takes courage in today's academic and budgetary environment. Stay strong, GTC! - Bill M."
