More Announcements of Forthcoming Photography Shows in the South
Kathleen Robbins will open a show of her images from the Mississippi Delta from her Into the Flatland portfolio on September 6th at the Beard + Riser Studios, at 201 Main Street, in Greenwood, Mississippi. Robbins' images have an elegance and richness that both complements and scrutinizes the Mississippi landscape. If you are in this part of Mississippi, this is a can't miss kind of show.
Eliot Dudik will open a show of his landscape photographs at a gallery called Art + Cayce, at1329 State Street, in Cayce, SC, on September 9th. The gallery calls his images "bucolic," though I'm not sure someone who offers us a photograph of a lake filled with large truck tires a "bucolic" photographer. First-class photographer, yes; photographer attuned to the ironies of Southern rural life, yes; bucolic, well, maybe.
Jennifer Schwartz Gallery in Atlanta is opening a show of landscape photography on September 10th, including work by several Southern photographers, including William Boling, Debbie Flemming Caffery, Susan Hadorn, Tom Rankin, and Kathleen Robbins.
Laura Noel is opening a major show of new work called Subject Matters: Laura Noel New Work, with an opening reception Thursday, September 15th from 6 until 9 pm at the Spruill Gallery in Atlanta's Spruill Arts Center, at 4681 Ashford Dunwoody Road, in Atlanta, GA.
Part of this show will be an installation of To-Do lists, and Laura is asking for contributions. She needs 1,100 lists and has only 800+ at the moment. So, if you want to be part of Laura's show, send her your old To-Do list to Laura Noel, c/o Visual Arts Department & Gallery, Emory University, 700 Peavine Creek Drive, Atlanta, GA 30322.
And of course, SlowExposures is also about to open in Concord, GA, south of Atlanta, on September 16th, at 1:00 pm, in the R. F. Strickland Building. Events run through September 25th.
The opening of SlowExposures includes an expanding array of festive events, including a big Soiree on Friday night, September 16th, a portfolio review on Saturday the 17th, the SlowExposures Ball on Saturday night, and lunch with Sylvia Plachy on Sunday the 18th.

There will also be the second in the series of John Bennette’s curated shows on the theme "southern Memories," up at the Whiskey Bonding Barn, also opening on September 16th, and this year featuring work, chiefly portraits, by Dave Anderson, Paul Conlan, Malgorzata Florkowska, Gary Gruby, Jessica Hines, Sarah Hoskins, Jane Robbins Kerr, Joanna Knox, Kendall Messick, Donna Rosser, Jerry Siegel, Marilyn Suriani, Jo Lynn Still, and Hai Zhang.
Raleigh's own David Simonton will be a featured artist this year at SlowExposures with his own show at
A Novel Experience Bookstore, on the square in Zebulon, GA.
SlowExposures brings us closer to the Daddy Rabbit of Southern photography festivals, Atlanta Celebrates Photography, opening in Atlanta on October 1st. Much more about ACP later.
In the meantime, much great work to see, pretty much wherever you are in the South this fall.
