Showing in the main gallery: Director’s Cut, a group exhibition featuring 20 artists who breathe fresh perspectives and a new vitality into traditional photographic genres such as landscape, portraiture, and still life. Director’s Cut is curated each year by APG executive director Beth Lilly from members’ work presented to APG over the past year.
Winners of the 2017 APG Student Prize will speak about their solo shows on exhibition in the APG Main Gallery: Infinite Tenderness by Peyton Fulford from Columbus State University and The Feeling of Being OK by Ben Lee from Georgia State University. Judges Annette Cone Skelton, Daniel Fuller, and Gregory Harris selected Fulford and Lee from 16 nominated students to exhibit in the main gallery. Work by all the nominees will also be on view in the gallery.
APG invites you to participate in a discussion with Ervin Johnson, assisted by Atlanta gallerist Arnika Dawkins, about technical aspects of his work, his creative process, the role of art in social change, and how his projects evolved in reaction to contemporary events. Johnson utilizes photo-based mixed media to reimagine his cultural and racial identity via photography and video. His most recent body of work, #InHonor, is a series of photo-based mixed media portraits made to honor Blackness as it exists in its various forms and speaks to the violence and destruction occurring across America, in the form of police brutality.
