Each October, Atlanta Celebrates Photography with a festival that includes over 150 photo-related exhibitions and events hosted by a diverse network of venues across the Atlanta metro area. Check out the Decatur galleries who are part of the action including:
The Seen Gallery offers Mismatches Mess – the work of three photographers from different countries with similar visions but with different outcomes – Dina Bova from Israel, Dominique Lauge from France, and Erol Oran from the USA. The show runs from October 23 – November 20.
At McGowan’s Pub in Oakhurst you will find “Atlanta: Past & Present” featuring iconic images that graced the pages of the AJC over the years from eight former AJC photographers including Louis Favorite, Chris Hunt, Joey Ivansco, Frank Niemeir, Cathy Seith, Walt Stricklin, Lanna Swindler, and David Tulis. The artists have also contributed the work they have been doing since their tenure at the newspaper. The show runs through November 27.
“Shapes and Shadows,” an exhibition by well-known Atlanta photographer Jim DiVitale is open in The Art Institute of Atlanta-Decatur Gallery. The show features architectural and commercial composite photo-illustrations by DiVitale, who graduated from The Art Institute of Atlanta in 1978 with an associate in arts degree in photography. The community is invited to the free opening reception on October 28 from 6 – 9 p.m. in the Gallery.
