Atlanta Celebrates Photography 9 officially opens this weekend, with an Opening Reception, Benefit Auction, My Atlanta, Film Series, Lecture Series and more.

This is an amazing annual event that impacts Atlanta and the Southeast is an extraordinary way.

My Atlanta” is an amazing gift to the city! Here’s more about it from the website:
“My Atlanta is an opportunity for photographers of all ages and with all levels of experience to exhibit their work and compete for prizes. Everyone is invited to bring work to Piedmont Park on Sat., Sept. 29, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Pre-registration is not required. The theme for this year’s My Atlanta is Evolution of a City. This year’s judge is Jerry Cullum, Senior Editor of Art Papers and independent curator and writer.”

I’ll be in Atlanta participating in ACP by giving a lecture entitled “Finding Your Audience: An Introductino to Marketing Your Artwork” on Sunday, September 30th from 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Atlanta:
1447 Peachtree Street
Atlanta, GA 30309

This lecture is free to MOCA GA members; $5 to non-members and $1 to students!
I hope to see you there!

NOTE: Next week’s Portfolio Reviews have long been filled, with Reviewers and Photographers alike coming in from all over the country. Don’t miss participating next year!

Lastly – KUDOS to outgoing Executive Director ANNE DENNINGTON for her innovative programming and effective leadership. And welcome to newly appointed Executive Director AMY MILLER who comes to ACP from serving as Gallery Director at the Fay Gold Gallery in Atlanta. Amy, along with new Programs Manager Michael David Murphy, will no doubt build upon the great foundation that Anne has secured for this organization!
