APG is proud to present the 2017 Student Prize, a major new initiative to support the work of young photographic artists in Georgia.

A group show in the Main Gallery features work by all the nominees: Craig Brown (University of West Georgia), KaTiah Byrd (Art Institute of Atlanta), Michaela Carey (University of West Georgia), Ally Christmas (University of Georgia), Suhair Farhat (Savannah College of Art & Design – Atlanta), William Glaser (Savannah College of Art & Design – Savannah), Karen Heximer (Columbus State University), Fred Hirschman (Savannah College of Art & Design – Savannah), Myles Mays (Art Institute of Atlanta), JB Rasor (Savannah College of Art & Design – Atlanta), Kathleen Sharp (Georgia State University), Katie Tippens (University of North Georgia), and Lauren Toebe (University of North Georgia).
The 2017 Student Prize exhibition is made possible by APG’s official corporate sponsor Digital Arts Studio.
Concurrently, in the Ted & Gloria Maloof Gallery, APG presents Mark Caceres' 72 Hours. Caceres explores the current political and social polarization of the USA by focusing on a 72 hour period in Washington, D.C. from January 19, 2017, the day prior to the inauguration of Donald Trump, to January 21, the day of the Women’s March on Washington.
