We're very happy to announce that Lumière Gallery Director Tony Casadonte has joined the APG Board. For over thirty years, Casadonte has had a diverse career in photography and been active in the Atlanta fine art photography community.
APG is thrilled to announce the winners of the 2017 Student Prize, a major new initiative to support the work of young photographic artists in Georgia. The prize is an exhibition in the APG Gallery for the two winners: Peyton Fulford (Columbus State University) presenting her series Infinite Tenderness, intimate portraits of young adults, and Ben Lee (Georgia State University) presenting his series, The Feeling of Being OK, an installation of appropriated imagery objects and text.
APG is adding a new position to the organization staff to expand our services and outreach into the community. The Program Manager is a part-time contract position to provide leadership and coordination for the planning, development, implementation and assessment of APG educational, outreach and public programs.
We are pleased to announce that APG has been awarded two separate grants for the 2017-18 year. The City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs awarded $3,500 and the Georgia Council for the Arts awarded $10,000. APG will use these funds to expand its programming and community outreach.
