The artwork of Atlanta-based photographers will be on display at the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center, beginning with an opening reception for the new exhibit on Saturday, Nov. 23. At 5 p.m.

The new exhibit, “People, Places, Things,” will feature the work of the Atlanta Photography Group (APG) 

The new display will be a group exhibition juried by  Dr. Samuel Gerace III, photo curator at the Booth Museum in Cartersville, Ga. He studied Fine Art at Shorter University. He received his Masters and Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh in Art History, while he received his second Masters in Celtic Studies from the University of Wales.

According to the APG, “Each artist featured in the exhibition presents photographic works featuring People, Places or Things, from traditional to imagined.”

A juried exhibition is one that has a call for entries on a specific theme and then one or more jurors selects the work that they feel best represents the theme of the exhibition. Dr. Samuel Gerace III, the juror, will discuss the process for selecting the artists and their images for the exhibition. He will also take questions regarding the photographs. 

Following his discussion, the opening reception fwill be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 23. 

Attendees will be able to walk through the artwork exhibit and many works will be available for purchase. The work of 35 photographers will be featured at the APG exhibit. 

This event is open to the public, appropriate for all ages and will be on display until January 18, 2020. 

Join the Atlanta Photography Group as well as Dr. Samuel Gerace III for an evening full of People, Places, Things at the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center, located at 434 South Main Street in Madison.
