The fall has flown by and another semester has come to a close as the new year is right around the corner. Needless to say, I have much to catch up on. September brought about another wild round of teaching at my alma mater, Savannah College of Art and Design, Kennesaw State University and Atlanta Techincal College. I finally understand the saying...Absent Minded Professor. Though it was a challenge it was also quite a learning experience and I had the pleasure to work with some inquisitive, talented and dedicated students. Below are a few highlights of critiques and bantor!
Shortly after the academic fall term started, Family as the Vernacular was up for a new installment for Atlanta Celebrates Photography at Mason Murer. I was lucky enough to be joined by the talented and hard-working (that's a HUGE understatement) ladies from Texas, H. Jennings Sheffiled and Libby Rowe. We had an unbelieveable showing for the opening reception!
In November, I was asked to be part of a small group exhibtion in running with the theme of MIDDLE. Presented by MINT and the Atlanta Office of Cultural Affair's Gallery 72 and curated by Candice Greathouse "The works included in this exhibition serve as a visual dialogue of ideas that investigate notions of this middleness – inbetweenness and potentiality through material and process. The artists and works featured in this exhibition represent the middle through a variety of strategies conceptually and aesthetically. They resist concrete categorization and definition, offering instead a provoking ambiguity that prolongs and redefines the “middle”."
There is tentatively an artist's talk and closing reception slated for Thursday, January 15 at 6:00 p.m. at Gallery 72 on Marietta St.
And that's a WRAP.
