Coney Island, 1963, by Edward Sturr

The years of being a teen are an often thrilling and torturous era in a person’s life. But what’s most interesting is that teens are often one of the best representations of a specified era. Joseph Bellows’ latest exhibition does well in exemplifying this.

The Teen Years will feature a selection of both vintage and contemporary photographs that address the physical, social, and emotional aspects of adolescence, and the formation of identity. The photographs included in the exhibition present a collective portrait of youth: its awkwardness, innocence, fury, elation, beauty and trepidation.

Photographs by Joseph Sterling, Edward Sturr, Enrico Natali, Elaine Mayes, Bevan Davies, Nacio Jan Brown, Melissa Shook, Harry Ibach, Duncan McCosker, Christine Osinski, Joan Albert, Sage Sohier, Mark Steinmetz, John Myers, Andrea Modica, Bill Yates, Roger Vail and others will be included.

Opening with a reception on July 9th, from 6-8pm, the public will be able to reflect upon their youth until August 26th, 2016.

On Site: "PAST PLACES ON PORTRIGA ", photographs by Margaret McCarthy, Red Filter Gallery

Pyramids of Sun and Moon, Margaret McCarthy

As many photographers and artists know, the materials at hand for making art can be a unique source of inspiration. So it is with Margaret McCarthy’s series of photographs now exhibiting at the Red Filter Gallery.

After  recently moving my studio, I re-discovered early prints of mine made on Agfa’s Portriga Rapid paper – once renown for its remarkable shadow detail and the richness of its maximum density black or “d-max”.  These travel images recall for me my time of discovering and falling in love with the magic of photography as I learned its craft; and I can now see that I was always drawn in my travels to places of antiquity.  I love digital processes and the creative freedom and expansion they give me; yet these prints on Portriga are something “other” to me and not necessarily meant to be compared with digital materials.  Simply put, they are from a different world."

Now through July 31

Preview: Atlanta Celebrates Photography 2016 Gala Fundraiser

In Art Fair, Black and White Photography, Photo Print Collector, Photographer on June 23, 2016 at 6:52 am

Atlanta, Georgia and its southern counterparts have always had a reputation for putting on an elegant soiree. So why shouldn’t it apply to photography as well. ACP (Atlanta Celebrates Photography) seems to think so, with another edition of their Annual Gala Fundraiser on the horizon. 

We’re happy to announce that Mary Stanley is the chairperson for the ACP 2016 Photography Auction Gala, and that the event will be held October 1st, at Mason Fine Art, with a cocktail hour and silent auction starting at 6:30pm.

This event sells out every year. We’ll be back in touch this summer so you can reserve your seat.

Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) aims to make Atlanta a leading center for the world’s fastest growing art form. Primarily, by producing the largest annual community-oriented photo festival in the United States, we provide experiences that engage and educate diverse audiences through lens-based media.

There’s plenty of time to plan for a visit the Atlanta this fall, but don’t forget the event’s popularity. If interested, it’s best to get tickets sooner rather than later.
