APG will present the annual $2,500 APG / High Museum of Art Purchase Award to this year's winner Savannah-based artist Emily Earl in a special reception at the APG Gallery. Seven pieces from Earl’s series Late Night Polaroids were selected by Assistant Curator of Photography at the High Museum of Art Gregory Harris to be included in their permanent collection. Celebrate with us for drinks, bites and a presentation by Harris and APG executive director Beth Lilly. This program is funded by the generous donations from Edwin Robinson and Ted & Gloria Maloof.
