December Photo Group Critique!

Join us for a monthly gathering of photographers / photo-based artists who are interested in cultivating a photo community in Savannah. Feel free to bring a piece or two to these first few events, so we can all get to know each other and our work, and we can build into the more structured critique dialogue described below.

Emily Earl and Bridget Conn are the organizers of the photo critique series. 

Feel free to invite your friends that might be interested!

Emily Earl is a photographer from Savannah, and a co-founder of Sulfur Studios, where she acts as Director of Public Relations & Special Events. Emily is also the owner/operator of Prismatic Prints, a print shop inside of Sulfur Studios that specializes in large format digital printing, and provides scanning, mounting, editing and design services.

Bridget Conn is an Assistant Professor of Art in Photography at Armstrong State University. She taught at East Georgia State College from 2005-2008 where she was a member of the Stillmoreroots artist collective. She moved to Asheville, North Carolina in 2009, where she eventually founded The Asheville Darkroom, a non-profit organization that offers darkroom access, educational opportunities, and a critique forum to the wider WNC community. She relocated to Savannah in the fall of 2016 to teach at Armstrong. 

**The structure and goals for the critique group are listed below! We hope to see you there!**

We are aiming to provide a forum for photographers/photographic artists at all levels, digital or analog, to receive critical feedback. We appeal to individuals using the medium as an artistic process, who will bring questions about their work, and are working within photography -- analog or digital, or other photo-based media. Ideally photographs should be in printed format, but we will provide a laptop with digital projector for folks who don't have prints ready to show. All who wish to provide a safe but challenging environment to grow with input from a group of peers are welcome!

Optionally, participants who do not bring work of their own can bring an example of a work of art or artist they would like to discuss, in case we are short on personal artwork. Books/print is preferred. If you are new to critique group, feel free to join us without artwork for your first visit to get an idea of our dialogue.

The first six people to reserve a slot will have their work reviewed during the critique, although anyone beyond the six who wants to attend is very much welcomed. To reserve a slot for critique of your work, email us at emilyearlphoto@gmail.com. 

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

For digital presentations -- please bring no more than 20 images on a flash drive -- we will not look at websites during critique, only photos you have chosen to show for the evening. Feel free to show images that stand on their own, or a body of work (completed or in progress) 

Email Emily at emilyearlphoto@gmail.com for any other questions!

"Margins" by Henry Dean - Opening Reception

6:00 PM18:00

"Margins" by Henry Dean - Opening Reception

Join us during First Fridays in Starland on January 5th for the Opening Reception of "Margins." Henry Dean is a multi-media artist who lives and works in Savannah, GA. He teaches Foundations Studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design and is director/coordinator of the SCAD Drawing Minor. 

“Margins” features two environmental pieces — "Tilt", a marsh installation executed near Port Royal in South Carolina and "Crescent Sun", a real-time video capture of a site-specific work set up in the path of totality during the August 21st 2017 solar eclipse.

For "Tilt," Dean purposefully wrapped nine canvases creating minimalist compositions rendered in natural media (bentonite, clay, hematite, charcoal), then placed them in the marsh on tripod rigs. 

"Crescent Sun," with its audio soundscape, provides an uncanny, sensory experience. Dean was inspired by eclipse fever and the pilgrimage quality of the once-in-a-lifetime event. 

“Margins” is on display from January 4th - 13th and may be seen during the gallery’s normal business hours, Thursday – Saturday, noon to 5PM. Also, be sure to join us for the closing reception and artist talk on Saturday, January 13th from 5 to 7PM.

Also tour our studios during our monthly Open Studio Night !

Opening Reception: BSRising (BrainstormRising)

Opening Reception: BSRising (BrainstormRising)

In October of 2016, Troy Wandzel and AJ Perez came together to facilitate an art installation/collaboration titled "ABrainStorm" that asked all walks of life to participate by lending their "voice" in whatever medium, to the overall outcome of the project. This project was interrupted by Hurricane Matthew as well, which one may say, lent its own voice to the final display.
This installation was about a shared process, how working together to create a space that is a reflection of our collective spirit has the power to unify the diverse languages that make up our community. 

Just over it's 1 yr anniversary, #BSRising is the next installment of an ongoing installation which will include Emile Fu as another co-creator. Emile, Troy and AJ will be using all the same materials from last years project and ONLY those materials. Their goal is to reinterpret the "diverse languages" by reconfiguring the "collective voice" and how it interacts in the same space but with new vision.

On display: Thursday, November 16th - Saturday, November 18th

Gallery Hours: Thursday - Saturday, noon - 5PM

“With so much terror and miscommunication spreading throughout our nation’s communities I think it best we come together to be in the midst of love. Best we congregate in music with friends and family. I’ve always put forth my highest effort for love, especially when it comes to my music... As we approach & cross our thresholds we can easily become disengaged or weary from the speed of it all. I’d like to slow things down for one night. Hope to see you all there.”

The Unaffected Nude: A Photographic Retrospective by Geoff L Johnson -- Reception

Join us in celebrating the work of Geoff L Johnson during the Reception for his exhibition, "The Unaffected Nude: A Photographic Retrospective". 

Geoff Johnson presents a retrospective of environmental nudes representing 20 years of introducing the female form into everyday environments.

Johnson works with friends and acquaintances, instead of professional models, and the resulting images show an organic creative process between photographer and model. In contrast to highly edited studio nudes, the unaffected nude is natural and unfiltered.

Meinschaft rides the ship of indifferent taste through the stagnant and troubled waters of western civilization. with the winds of materialistic hedonism blowing ever faster through their sails, they generate a perpetual vortex of ritual energy and concentrated spectacle; hurtling humanity closer and closer towards the crushing singularity of PROGRESS. plus they sound real dope. live presentation leans towards the spectacular including strobing video projections, Black Hebrew Israelite-inspired wardrobe/adornments, select fetishized objects, etc.
