In 2009, he was one of twelve photographers chosen to participate in Gifted, Atlanta Celebrates Photography’s Public Art Project.

Spotlight on Ansley West

April 20, 2010

Ansley West’s photographic compositions interpret narratives both real and imagined. She often places herself into the photographs, in order to recontextualize these stories.  Her work sometimes portrays social issues about which she is passionate.  The images selected for this show come from two bodies of work:  “Fences” addresses the physical and psychological hurdles we face and how we move past them, while  “Landscapes” seeks to show that human connection to the earth can be a symbiotic rather than a parasitic relationship.  As well as being included in many group exhibitions across the US and featured in three solo shows, West’s work is included in many private and museum collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia.  She has recently returned from Uganda, where she shot a documentary film called Mother of a Nation, about women living with HIV and their connection to agriculture.

Spotlight on Pam Moxley

April 16, 2010

Self-taught artist Pam Moxley is the co-owner of Original Art Finders and recently stepped down as the Curator of Grace Gallery in Marietta, Georgia after seven years. She has been featured in numerous solo and juried exhibitions and her work is included in collections throughout the United States, including the Southeast Museum of Photography, the City of Atlanta Collection, and the Atlanta Photography Group’s Collector’s Portfolio. Moxley’s mixed-media images are simple in composition, yet complex in theme. Her work often incorporates child-like elements, giving them a nostalgic and maternal feel. When she is finished with each photographic construction, she utilizes several other media, adding layers of both texture and meaning.

California!

April 12, 2010

My family and I have spent the last eleven (yes eleven!) days on vacation.  We went to LA and San Francisco, and in addition to getting some super cute shots of my own kids for a change, I checked out a bunch of photography galleries and worked on a new fine art collection.  Back to work now!!
