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.

 If you  will be able to travel to Atlanta in October, Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) is holding its annual photography festivities again this fall. Included is a great opportunity to have your portfolio work reviewed. Apply today!

The ACP 2014 Portfolio Review and Walk offers artists the opportunity to meet with highly respected curators, dealers, editors, and agency representatives from across the United States and beyond. The Portfolio Walk (following the review sessions) gives participating photographers the opportunity to present their work to the general public at an evening reception, open to all.

Sponsored in part by Turner Broadcasting and their “Turner Voices” initiative, 17 reviewers and 51 artists will meet on Saturday, October 11th, 2014. Each photographer will meet privately with at least five reviewers for twenty minutes each.

Anyone can apply for this excellent learning opportunity but it comes with a couple of caveats. First, because of there regularly being a surplus of applicants, not all those who apply will be able to take part. Secondly, if you happen to be accepted, there is a charge of $300. Considering the potential exposure and networking opportunities on top of what one might learn, it’s still very much worth it to those who are dedicated. Make sure to act fast as the deadline for submission is July 27th.

Bay Head, NJ Gregory Conniff

Gregory Conniff, Bay Head, NJ, 1978

Gregory Conniff’s intricate photographs of everyday American architecture and surrounding landscapes first brought him recognition three decades ago, and Joseph Bellows Gallery is proud to display his work in the realm of American tradition.

His photographs order the world they describe; honoring the common places and things he organizes within the viewfinder of his medium format camera. The gelatin silver prints that present this vision are exceptionally beautiful. They express clarity, light, and a subtle tonal range that at once respects the subject pictured and the medium that represents it.

Favorites: Best of “Atlanta Celebrates Photography”, Best Gallery – Lumiere

For the second year we have been so impressed by the physical layout, location and, of course, exhibits, presented by Lumiere in Atlanta. After the New York cool exhibit space in Chelsea and the modernity of LA/San Francisco gallery layouts, it is a pleasure to be at “home” in Lumiere.

Lumière provides a diverse range of photographic art through its’ own proprietary collection, regular exhibitions and acquisition activities on behalf of clients.

The gallery has work from over 75 photographers. They range from masters of the 19th and 20th century to more contemporary practitioners. All are established, with works in important museum collections, as well as having participated in multiple exhibitions. Most have had multiple books and catalogues published on their work.

Lumière was founded by Robert Yellowlees. It reflects his experiences as a collector of art for over 35 years in addition to having served on the boards of major arts institutions.

Tony Casadonte has had a diverse 30 year career in photography. Prior to joining Lumière as gallery director, he managed the leading commercial photography laboratory in the Southeast. In that capacity, he was actively involved with professional photographers to support their processing and printing requirements.

Laura Noel, following graduation from Duke University and an internship at Aperture Foundation, has pursued a professional photographic career for almost 20 years.
