In Celebration of Photography

Ryan Hendon, Mid-Century Landscapes, Pictured #2, Vintage Silver Gelatin Print, 8 7/8" x 8 3/4"

September 9th marked the opening of our first-ever photography show which is curated by local photographer Stephanie Dowda. In conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography, Echoes of the Sublime features 10 artists, both local and non-local. Stephanie has selected black and white, color, vintage prints and brand new works to bring us a wonderful introduction into this genre.

The show features works by the following: Allyson Ross of New York, John Paul Floyd of Atlanta, Klea McKenna of San Francisco, Justin Weaver of Atlanta, Jeff Rich of Savannah, Aaron Norberg of Portland, Lauren Hughes of Atlanta, Ryan Hendon of San Francisco, Ashley Kauschinger of Atlanta and Megan Gorham of San Francisco.

Not only did Stephanie's curatorial work bring in our largest opening night crowd to date, but she is also receiving rave reviews. Jerry Cullum, writing for ArtsCriticATL.com, says, "...the goal of curator Stephanie Dowda in “Echoes of the Sublime,” at Emily Amy Gallery through October 22, is both ambitious and admirable. Bearing in mind what the sublime has meant in more philosophically secure eras of life and thought, she sets out to find what the sublime means for American photographers in the second decade of the 21st century."
