DUAL EXHIBIT FOR ATLANTA CELEBRATES PHOTOGRAPHY
Friday Oct 6th 6 - 8 PM
with Aint Bad
Featuring work by: Various Artists
In a digital age, we are constantly connected and seeking instant gratification; others however, have returned to the magic of the instant film photography. With this process, there are no do-overs; an image is created straight from the camera and develops in the palm of your hand. Today, many contemporary artists are looking again to the instant film as a viable option for image making. Whether your purpose is instant gratification or to disconnect from cumbersome equipment, we want to see how you are embracing the instant image in a contemporary world. This traveling exhibit will be in Atlanta for the month of October.
with Children's Hospital of Atlanta Scottish Rite
Entering its 6th year, ACP’s collaborative program with inpatient teens at Scottish Rite and Egleston hospitals has impacted participants beyond everyone’s expectations. Some very special volunteer photographers, led by ACP co-founder Corinne Adams, have been leading 400 teens a year to explore their identity (including or in spite of their diagnosis) through writing and photographic self-portraiture.
Special thanks to the Child Life Specialists at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Bill Boling, Charlotte Dixon, Digital Arts Studio, Atlanta School of Photography and Brickworks Gallery.
These simultaneous exhibitions highlight the powerful teen portraits and writings (Brickworks) as well as behind the scenes and hilarious outtakes (ASOP).
Both exhibitions will be on view from Oct. 6 - 28th.
