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.
Concurrently in the Ted & Gloria Maloof Gallery, APG presents Ashley Rodgers Burdell: photoSLAM! Columbus Winner. Burdell is the Juror Award winner of the first photoSLAM! High School/College Edition produced in Columbus, GA on April 15, 2017 and sponsored by Aflac IT. Inspired by 19th century spirit photography, Ashley Rodgers Burdell explores photography’s ability to distort the truth.
First presented in 2013, photoSLAM! is a poetry slam where the words are expressed through images. Each artist has ten images of their work projected in two minutes in a lighting fast poetry slam style. The quintessential space for photographers and visual artists to share their work, photoSLAM! is authentic community building, bringing together, is infused with the visual arts and technology.
