ACP, CLICK!, PhotoNOLA -- Festivals of Photography, Fall 2014
Photography festivals continue to proliferate across the South. This is Good News, at least to us in the photography community.
The Daddy Rabbit (as my father used to say) of them all is of course Atlanta Celebrates Photography, which will take over the art scene in Atlanta during the month of October.
This is ACP's sixteenth year in existence, and it keeps getting bigger and better. There will be all the events one would expect, including museum and gallery shows, a portfolio review, lectures, an auction of photographs, a book fair, a film series, and more, so much more.
It has in fact burst the boundaries of October, with events under its umbrella taking place both before and after the month of October itself. This year there will be events at over 120 different venues across Atlanta and into the surrounding Georgia countryside.
You can find the official ACP Guide to this year's festival here. There is a brief guide to the major events here and the Festival's Blog, here.
Also in October this year will be the launching of a new and ambitious regional photography festival in North Carolina.
CLICK! Triangle Photography Festival will feature exhibitions, talks, and other photography-related events at museums, galleries, and other venues across North Carolina's Research Triangle region.
Sites for major shows include the Ackland Museum in Chapel Hill, the Nasher Museum and the Durham Arts Guild in Durham, and the Contemporary Art Museum, the Gregg Museum of Art and Design, and the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.

December will bring PhotoNOLA, scheduled in New Orleans for December 4-7, 2014. PhotoNOLA also brings exhibitions, talks, and other photography-related events at museums, galleries, and other venues in New Orleans, including especially the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the Louisiana State Museum.
