$10 Cover


Xuluprophet is at it again, hosting a concert to benefit DEEP Center. Live performances by Clay Hodges, Colonial FX, FAMLé (all three have upcoming releases) , and Xuluprophet. Expect a stunning visual projection element to the show. Food and light refreshments will be available on site. Craft vendors will be there and raffles through the evening. Xuluprophet is donating ½ of the door to DEEP Center. 

About Deep Center:

“Deep Center empowers Savannah’s young people to thrive as learners, community leaders, and agents of change. Through creative writing, cultural production, and art, Deep creates platforms for the city’s youth and the village of support around them, including their families and adult allies, to share stories, engage in debates, and make Savannah a more just and equitable place.

Deep Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 2008 to address the detrimental effects of poverty on literacy in Savannah, Georgia. During our first year, we hosted free creative-writing workshops for 24 young people from two local public schools and published one book of writing.”

Xuluprophet’s single release last year, ‘Beyond Local’ also served as a benefit for Deep Center. The band has several organizations that they support with periodic events: Safe Shelter Center For Domestic Violence, Loop it Up Savannah, Deep Center, and most recently Park Place.

More about the performers:

Clay Hodges: Dubbed, “The Voice of Savannah” by TheGeorgia Media Agency, Clay Hodges is truly a gift to his community and the world. Clay’s introduction to music came from his mother, a classically trained pianist and his father, who exposed Clay to a diverse catalog of music.Born and raised on the east side of Savannah made Clay see and experience things that inspired him to use his music for the greater good. Since then he has been consistently releasing music and performing across the country. As Clay’s influence grows his mission to make a difference stays the same.
Xuluprophet: The groove heavy rhythmic style has roots in Caribbean and latin rhythms. Xuluprophet gets compared to artists as varied as The Police, Jimi Hendrix, The Cure, Bad Brains and Primus.

Mostly dance and party music, the lyrical message is political and spiritual. Drawing from their Reggae roots they wish to influence the listener to better themselves and the world around them through the power of music and song. 


INSTRUMENTAL ∆JE: “A stationary traveler, Aje sees the world through the universal energy connecting our minds eye.”

Creative Director of F∆MLé - Savannah, Gafamleforever.bandcamp.com@famleforever

Co-Founder of Emergent Savannah - Savannah, GaEmergentsavannah.org

ON::VIEW Artist Residency - Open Studio

ON::VIEW Artist Residency - Open Studio

The Savannah community is invited to come by the ON::VIEW Artist-in-Residency space at Sulfur Studios and take part in "Dearest Savannah" - current Artist Resident Nicholas Silberg's project. Step into his letterpress print shop and work with the artist to compose your very own print expressing how you feel about our community - Saturday afternoons from noon - 5PM!


More info about "Dearest Savannah":

The power of the printed word, deliberate in nature, takes time in its revolution. Handwritten letters are personal and tangible because of the time and intimate process of drawing out each and every character. Handprinted ephemera much like handwritten letters can provide the same genuine experience. Unlike word processing where an entire paragraph or more of composition can be eradicated with a swift highlight and a backspace, this is not the case with handset type since it is hard to redistribute what has already been set in and inked.

“Dearest Savannah” is a adlib patchwork of words, phrases, and sayings about our community, printed by the artist and walk-in community participants. The prints will be assembled and reassembled as the living letter to our dearest Savannah growing over the course of the residency. The studio will be transformed into a letterpress print shop complete with woodtype, presses, ink, paper and other printing accoutrements. The space will provide an opportunity for participants to engage with the artist and equipment to find the words to express how we feel about our community. Participants will build upon what has already been said bring to light common themes of what we say about the place in which we live.

Following an interaction with the space and the printing process participants will be able to take a print of what they set with them as a reminder of what they have said. Participants are invited to come and print anytime the artist is present in the space.

Photo Group Critique!
Dec
5
6:00 PM18:00

Photo Group Critique!

Join us for a monthly gathering of photographers / photo-based artists who are interested in cultivating a photo community in Savannah. We aim to provide a forum for artists at all levels, digital or analog, to receive critical feedback. All who wish to provide a safe but challenging environment to grow with input from a group of peers are welcome.

*** To show your work, RSVP BEFORE CRITIQUE by emailing us at events@sulfurstudios.org, or post on the Facebook page for the event. We will ask at the beginning of critique if there are others with work who did not reserve a spot, and will limit our session to the first 6 people. Individuals who arrive late are not guaranteed a spot to show their work. Of course you do not have to show work to attend! ***

PRINTED WORK IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED, however we do have a projector for digital work. There is no limit on prints, but 10-20 is a suggested amount for a productive conversation. Digital work should be limited to 20 images on a flash drive. 

Our basic ground rules include:

1) While we understand that photography serves many different purposes, we approach it from the perspective of artists. This means we believe that there is no one correct way to create a photograph, so our conversations are not about right vs. wrong, or solely based on technique. Because of this, we anticipate that presenters

-- are providing a body of work united by an idea rather than a collection of unrelated images,

-- are willing to provide information about where they are trying to take the work so the group can frame their questions appropriately, and

-- are bringing work that is coming from a place of personal exploration and not solely commercial gain.

Feel free to attend critique a few times before showing work to help clarify these ideas, or reach out to us with questions.

2) We ask that you please keep your one-on-one conversations during critique to a minimum so that the group can give respectful attention to the person presenting their work.

3) *** To show your work, RSVP before critique by emailing us at events@sulfurstudios.org, or post on the Facebook page for the event. We will ask at the beginning of critique if there are others with work who did not reserve a spot, and will limit our session to the first 6 people. Individuals who arrive late are not guaranteed a spot to show their work. Of course you do not have to show work to attend! ***

We will be meeting in the Sulfur Studios Annex -- upstairs at 2301 Bull Street (upstairs entrance is on the corner of 39th and Desoto Ave -- look for the blue awning!) and please BYOB. Feel free to invite your friends that might be interested!

Emily Earl and Bridget Conn are the organizers of the photo critique series. Emily is a photographer from Savannah, a co-founder of Sulfur Studios, and the owner/operator of Prismatic Prints, a print shop inside of Sulfur Studios. Bridget is a photographic artist and former director of The Asheville Darkroom, and now an Assistant Professor of Art in Photography at the Armstrong Campus of Georgia Southern.

ON::VIEW Artist-in-Residency -- Open Studio Day!

Come by and see what our current ON::VIEW Artist-in-Resident is working on!

This session we are proud to host multimedia artist and designer, Craig Deppen Auge, who is based in Kansas City, Missouri. During his residency he will be working on his project INTERVALS.

About INTERVALS:

The book and collage can be metaphors for life’s journey; pages and layers conveying time experienced. INTERVALS will expand on Auge’s existing collage practice, utilizing rhythmic, coded and abstracted vocabularies to explore alternative book art. During the 4-week residency, simple bookmaking techniques will be distilled and/or deconstructed to produce sculptural forms. These forms, along with 2D work incorporating collage, drawing, painting and print processes, will develop into a cohesive installation. Playful experimentation between color, texture, pattern and geometry will merge with subtle, narrative photographic elements. Within these combinations, INTERVALS will examine concepts of personal and universal journey. Works will ponder the intersection of ethereal dreamscape and architectural landscape. INTERVALS will highlight inner spaces and interspaces, individual moments and the places in-between, that constitute a collective sense of reality. Quick-shifting segments of imagery may not be immediately recognizable, but in some way are familiar.

The rhythm of the work will be directly informed by the very days and moments spent at Sulfur Studios. Passersby can be present with the artist’s meditative process of collage and bookmaking; cut, fold, arrange, collate, paste, bind, repeat. Using a mixture of acquired print sources, hand-altered paper, canvas, and fabric, surprising moments of unity and contrast, of harmony and dissonance, will be revealed. Auge will incorporate locally sourced ephemera and found materials as much as possible. There will be opportunities during the residency for the community to add visual components to the work. The community will be invited to share specific memories, project imagined futures, or simply take a few moments to indulge in a bit of creative play. Auge will keep the process of making open for improvisation and spontaneity in response to the city and site.

Additionally, Auge aims to publish a collaborative, limited edition zine toward the end of the program. The Zine will prove as record of the monthlong creative interval. A drop-in workshop will be offered to learn how to make small format books and zines so the community can be empowered to self-publish and utilize these processes in their own creative endeavors.

Join us in welcoming our current Artist-in-Resident Craig Deppen Auge! Bring a snack or drink to share, or just bring yourself and learn about Craig's project INTERVALS.

About the ON::VIEW Artist-in-Residency Program:

To bolster our ongoing mission to provide a vibrant and supportive home for Savannah's creative community, Sulfur Studios now offers the new ON::VIEW Artist-in-Residency Program. The Residency provides free, high visibility studio space to an artist to complete a 4-week, site-specific project that engages the community. Residents are encouraged to meet the public and share their practice during special events and studio visits, and to utilize the large windows facing Bull Street to incite the curiosity of people as they pass by at any time of day or night.

Additionally, Auge aims to publish a collaborative, limited edition zine toward the end of the program. The Zine will prove as record of the monthlong creative interval. A drop-in workshop will be offered to learn how to make small format books and zines so the community can be empowered to self-publish and utilize these processes in their own creative endeavors.

ON::VIEW Artist-in-Residency -- Open Studio Day!

Come by and see what our current ON::VIEW Artist-in-Resident is working on!

This session we are proud to host multimedia artist and designer, Craig Deppen Auge, who is based in Kansas City, Missouri. During his residency he will be working on his project INTERVALS.

About INTERVALS:

The book and collage can be metaphors for life’s journey; pages and layers conveying time experienced. INTERVALS will expand on Auge’s existing collage practice, utilizing rhythmic, coded and abstracted vocabularies to explore alternative book art. During the 4-week residency, simple bookmaking techniques will be distilled and/or deconstructed to produce sculptural forms. These forms, along with 2D work incorporating collage, drawing, painting and print processes, will develop into a cohesive installation. Playful experimentation between color, texture, pattern and geometry will merge with subtle, narrative photographic elements. Within these combinations, INTERVALS will examine concepts of personal and universal journey. Works will ponder the intersection of ethereal dreamscape and architectural landscape. INTERVALS will highlight inner spaces and interspaces, individual moments and the places in-between, that constitute a collective sense of reality. Quick-shifting segments of imagery may not be immediately recognizable, but in some way are familiar.

The rhythm of the work will be directly informed by the very days and moments spent at Sulfur Studios. Passersby can be present with the artist’s meditative process of collage and bookmaking; cut, fold, arrange, collate, paste, bind, repeat. Using a mixture of acquired print sources, hand-altered paper, canvas, and fabric, surprising moments of unity and contrast, of harmony and dissonance, will be revealed. Auge will incorporate locally sourced ephemera and found materials as much as possible. There will be opportunities during the residency for the community to add visual components to the work. The community will be invited to share specific memories, project imagined futures, or simply take a few moments to indulge in a bit of creative play. Auge will keep the process of making open for improvisation and spontaneity in response to the city and site.

Additionally, Auge aims to publish a collaborative, limited edition zine toward the end of the program. The Zine will prove as record of the monthlong creative interval.

October Photo Group Critique!
Oct

6:00 PM18:00

October Photo Group Critique!

Join us for a monthly gathering of photographers / photo-based artists who are interested in cultivating a photo community in Savannah. We aim to provide a forum for artists at all levels, digital or analog, to receive critical feedback. All who wish to provide a safe but challenging environment to grow with input from a group of peers are welcome.

*** To show your work, RSVP BEFORE CRITIQUE by emailing us at events@sulfurstudios.org, or post on the Facebook page for the event. We will ask at the beginning of critique if there are others with work who did not reserve a spot, and will limit our session to the first 6 people. Individuals who arrive late are not guaranteed a spot to show their work. Of course you do not have to show work to attend! ***

PRINTED WORK IS HIGHLY ENCOURAGED, however we do have a projector for digital work. There is no limit on prints, but 10-20 is a suggested amount for a productive conversation. Digital work should be limited to 20 images on a flash drive. 

Our basic ground rules include:

1) While we understand that photography serves many different purposes, we approach it from the perspective of artists. This means we believe that there is no one correct way to create a photograph, so our conversations are not about right vs. wrong, or solely based on technique. Because of this, we anticipate that presenters

-- are providing a body of work united by an idea rather than a collection of unrelated images,

-- are willing to provide information about where they are trying to take the work so the group can frame their questions appropriately, and

-- are bringing work that is coming from a place of personal exploration and not solely commercial gain.

Feel free to attend critique a few times before showing work to help clarify these ideas, or reach out to us with questions.

2) We ask that you please keep your one-on-one conversations during critique to a minimum so that the group can give respectful attention to the person presenting their work.

3) *** To show your work, RSVP before critique by emailing us at events@sulfurstudios.org, or post on the Facebook page for the event. We will ask at the beginning of critique if there are others with work who did not reserve a spot, and will limit our session to the first 6 people. Individuals who arrive late are not guaranteed a spot to show their work. Of course you do not have to show work to attend! ***

We will be meeting in the Sulfur Studios Annex -- upstairs at 2301 Bull Street (upstairs entrance is on the corner of 39th and Desoto Ave -- look for the blue awning!) and please BYOB. Feel free to invite your friends that might be interested!

Emily Earl and Bridget Conn are the organizers of the photo critique series. Emily is a photographer from Savannah, a co-founder of Sulfur Studios, and the owner/operator of Prismatic Prints, a print shop inside of Sulfur Studios. Bridget is a photographic artist and former director of The Asheville Darkroom, and now an Assistant Professor of Art in Photography at the Armstrong Campus of Georgia Southern.

"Something Else" by Jia Zeng - Reception
Oct

6:00 PM18:00

"Something Else" by Jia Zeng - Reception

Something else is what hasn’t been defined yet. It is uncertainty. Something is still finding its definition. It can’t be categorized and has to put it aside. It is confusion. It could thrive or decline. It is a middle place between something and nothing. The exhibition is finding the answer of what are we really making? Is it something, nothing or something else? Maybe back to an old question – are we painting or crafting?

 

Artist Bio

 Jia Zeng (b.1995, Xiamen, China) received a B.F.A in painting in 2018 summer from Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, GA. She has travelled to Hong Kong and France over the past year, showing her work in Savannah and Lacoste. Her painting deals with emotions, using metaphorical and poetic perception. She combines the fiber elements and the found objects in weaving and her small work.

On display: October 11th - 14th

ON::VIEW Artist Residency - Artist Talk with Annika Pettersson

Join us for an Artist Talk with our current ON::VIEW Artist-in-Resident Annika Pettersson and learn more about her project "Remix Resolution."

“Remix Resolution” is the project that jewelry designer Annika Pettersson will be working with during the 4 week ON::VIEW Residency at Sulfur Studios. The project takes its inspiration from remix culture and applies its methods to the creative process of making jewelry. "Remix" generally refers to the practice of recombining pre-existing media content - to fabricate a new work. The process includes computer aided design(CAD) and 3D-printing. The result of the Residency will be a series of jewelry that can be seen as a collage of pre-existing jewelry designs. 

Annika will have her studio space open to the public On Wednesdays from 10:30AM - 3PM (September 19th, 26th and October 3rd) 

You can also meet the artist and hang out with some great people at the Community Potluck on September 22nd from 5 - 7PM !!

This project takes its inspiration from the remix culture that was first developed by end of the 20th century and has evolved ever since. "Remix" generally refers to the practice of recombining pre-existing media content.

Remix, in whatever form or medium in which it is implemented, is concerned with recordings. It is founded on the appropriation of existing media content and it manipulates this recorded data to fabricate new products or content.

Every element in a remix has been derived and copied from something else, it is a process requiring the act of copying. The result is not just a faithful reproduction but somewhat different and original in its own right.

Pettersson aims to produce new and interesting products by recycling already existing media and content. The “Remix resolution” project examines concepts of originality, innovation, authority, simulation, plagiarism, repetition, and inauthenticity.

Garden Tips for a Sustainable Southeastern Landscape - with Lisa Watson

GARDEN TIPS FOR A SUSTAINABLE SOUTHEASTERN LANDSCAPE

Artist & Garden Designer Lisa D. Watson shares her native plant knowledge and discusses ways to attract pollinators to your landscape. 

Due to pesticides, habitat loss, pathogens and climate change, our native pollinators have declined in many parts of the United States. Pollinators are essential to maintain agricultural crops and diverse plant communities. 

Think if every household allotted a 10 x 10 foot section of their landscape to a native pollinating garden! Lisa hopes the information she provides will inspire you to create a sustainable garden and help our pollinators thrive in the Southeast. 

Saving the planet, one garden at a time! 

This free lecture is part of Watson's On::View Residency here at Sulfur Studios. 

Plants and artwork will be available for purchase after the lecture.

"Out of Context" Closing Reception & First Friday in Starland

Join us on Friday, September 7th for the Closing Reception of "Out of Context", in conjunction with First Fridays in Starland. For this nation-wide Call for Entry, Sulfur Studios invited artists to submit work in all media inspired by graffiti and street art to be displayed in a gallery setting. Artists were asked: How does the context of the gallery change the impact the work has on the viewer? What happens when the work is removed from the street and placed in a white box environment? How does this transition from public to private spheres alter the reception of the work’s message? Does this in some way legitimize street art, or remove its integrity? Entries were juried by a committee of Sulfur Studios members, with special guest curator Adolfo H Alvarado

Out of Context Artists:

Rebecca Rolfes, Ruth Spellman, Caleb Kennedy, Anne Bessac, Carmela Aliffi, Phoebe Teeters, Zechariah Rosenmeier, Andre Bertolino, Evan Stolers, Jay Hollick and Susan Harmon

"Out of Context" is on display from August 24th - September 8th, 2018, and may be seen during the gallery’s normal business hours, Thursday – Saturday, noon to 5PM. Also come check out the show on Saturday, August 25th as we do a Juror Talk, Tour and Demo with Adolfo.

Also happening during First Friday at Sulfur Studios: 

Open Studio Night -- your opportunity to tour our studios and see what our studio renters have been working on!
