If you talk to photographers in Atlanta they will tell you that fall -- and particularly October -- is a heavy photography time in the area. That is very true -- Atlanta Celebrates Photography cranks up all over during late September through October. If you think that not much happens during the spring -- then you need to check around.
Saturday April 23 at 11am is the closing event for the Steven Lawson exhibit, Motion Pictures: Change by Degrees at Lumiere Gallery. This event concludes at noon giving those interested time to attend the Kerry Skarbakka/Michael Rooks event at Hagedorn Gallery.
Saturday April 30 at 11 am is another event at Lumiere; Motion Pictures: Equilibrium, photography by John Kolkin opens with the artist's talk. Following this event, at Dogwood Gallery in Tyrone, at the Nature Undisturbed exhibit is a panel discussion on collecting photography moderated by Susan Todd-Raque. The panel includes Lucinda Bunnen, Kathryn Kolb, and Brett Abbott.
Viewing photography, attending artists' talks, and listening to a panel can inspire any photographer to get out and make some photos. Also inspiring is the line up of workshops at Serenbe Photography Center during the next few weeks. If you are a beginner there is a class for you. If Lightroom is something you are interested in but you need a bit of instructions -- we have a class. There is even something for those adventurous printers -- printing on acrylic or aluminum. Or, if you still love the darkroom, how about learning the fine art of the black and white print? These are just the offerings through May at the center. Check out the website for these and more. Call or email the center if you have any questions.
