Go See. I'll Say It Again: Really Go. (If you happen to be in Georgia.)

Sharon Core's "Early American" Exhibition at SCAD-Atlanta's Trois Gallery - it's not clear in their materials but I believe there is an opening reception and artist talk - Thursday 10/8 at 6PM
Show Runs Oct. 2-Nov. 25

Trois Gallery, 1600 Peachtree St., Atlanta, Ga.
The exhibitions department presents "Early American," a series of still life photographs by artist Sharon Core based on the paintings of early 19th-century still life painter Raphaelle Peale. In her work, Core engages the concept of illusionism central to the genre of still life and upends the notion of trompe l'oeil by attempting to create a photograph that appears to be a painting. This exhibition is free and open to the public. For more on Sharon's work see my blog here


 William Christenberry: Photographs, 1961–2005
at The Morris Meseum of Art, Macon Georgia. September 12–November 8, 2009. Not everything is in Atlanta, so jump in the car and head South to Macon. We missed Mr Christenberry's gallery talk last month. Sadly, we just forgot to put it on our calendar.

Tierney Gearon. It's ACP time  (Atlanta Celebrates Photography) (another festival, lord knows Atlanta loves a festival and every other day there's a new photography-related festival popping up) and Tierney Gearon is in town at the end of the month speaking about her work. If you don't know her images, you should. Netflix her documentary "The Mother Project" and go see her talk at The High Museum of Art Thu, Oct 29, 7pm - 9pm FREE!
 As part of Atlanta Celebrates Photography’s annual lecture series, The High Museum presents a lecture by acclaimed, native Atlantan photographer, Tierney Gearon, in The Hill Auditorium on Thursday, October 29 at 7:00 PM. Tierney’s lecture will encompass the entire span of her career as a photographer - beginning with her first portraits of her family, her early commercial work as a fashion photographer in Europe, her discovery by Charles Saatchi, subsequent shows at The Gagosian Gallery, The Mother Project, and her newest series, EXPLOSURE. 


Check back here regularly as I'll hopefully add other directives as we move through the month.
