Atlanta- SCAD and ACP


 Atlanta Celebrates Photography has amazing events about photography throughout the month of October. This weekend is the annual Portfolio Reviews and Walk. The Portfolio Walk Through event is open to the public. It is a terrific way to learn more about how these events are structured and to network with a broader community. 

Greer Muldowney SCAD M.F.A. alumna at the portfolio reviews 2012


Location : Dashboard Co-Op 
31-33 North Ave NW Atlanta GA (Map)
Time: Friday October 9th 

5pm to 10pm

Aint-Bad Exhibition Oglethorpe Row Gallery
Join Aint-Bad Magazine for The American South exhibition in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography. We will be featuring work from over 75 artists, in addition to having magazines, prints, and books for sale. 
Food and drinks will also be provided so come out for a night of Southern celebration!


This summer, the work featured in The American South has become a traveling exhibition, as Aint-Bad expands their reach throughout the Southeast to hone in on this region of the country. In June, a selection of submissions from our Issue No. 8 call for entry were exhibited at the 9/50 Southeast Arts Presenter's Summit at the Atlanta Contemporary Arts Center. Aint-Bad will host a premiere large scale exhibition at the following locations this Fall. 

I spent a few wonderful days on our Atlanta campus last week. I really encourage students and faculty to take the opportunity to visit and enjoy the city experience and our sister campus.

I attended an artist reception for my exhibition at Gallery SEE and met with 50+ Atlanta campus students during the afternoon. The exhibition is up through October 16. 


I enjoyed a lecture by visiting artist Sam Nhlengethwa in conjunction with his exhibition at Gallery 1600, “Life, Jazz and Lots of other Things.”

 
Sam Nhlengethwa spent two days working with the Atlanta print making department collaborating with students and faculty to produce a beautiful series of prints.

 


Photography students have a wonderful relationship with the printmaking department often choosing to earn an printmaking minor, to double major in printmaking spending a year on the Atlanta campus. or continuing their education and applying to the MFA in printmaking and earning a graduate degree moving from Savannah to Atlanta. Below are some pictures of the Atlanta printmaking department. For more information please contact the chair of printmaking Robert Brown, rtbrown@scad.edu
