ON::VIEW Artist Residency Open Studio - Theme: Education in Savannah

Come meet Artist Resident Anya Mitchell during her Open Studio hours and discuss shared desires regarding 'education'

From Anya's Artist Statement:

Inspired by the neighborhoods and culture of Savannah, Georgia  I've been thinking about the way we divide ourselves into living a diversity of ways--thinking about how all our ways of living--for all the differences that exist--are all part of one community--though they feel worlds apart. I've been reflecting on our common desires: desires for a safe place to call home, for our children to be educated, to have access to food. Reflections on Desires embodies these reflections. Places of intersection in Savannah--homes, schools and grocery stores-- are woven together where patterns in the environment across images reflects the one reality in which these seemingly separate places exist. 

I want to be in conversations based on a common understanding that we share this community, and that fulfilling these desires connects us all.  I want to learn from my neighbors, my community. Let's talk about our shared desires and Savannah life. All are invited to the open studio times at Sulfur Studios to view these works, join an informal discussion on these themes and have a go at paper weaving.

May Photo Group Critique!
May
16
6:00 PM18:00

May 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. 

*** 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. 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. There is no limit on prints, but10-20 is a suggested amount for a productive conversation. ***

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.

"Lines & Strikes" - Opening Reception

Every year, December marks the season for North Atlantic Right Whales to come home to Georgia's waters to calve their newborns.  Over the last four months, North Atlantic Right Whales have faced the largest die off event in recorded history. Seventeen whales have surfaced dead in the northern end of their migratory area. This is a huge impact on a population of less than 450, making them the most endangered large marine mammal on the planet. 

On February 9th, local and international artists will come together to share the message of life and death in the anthropocene. Artists will explore any interpretation they have for the beauty of the North Atlantic Right Whale, and or their dire struggle to survive. 

Funds raised from this auction will benefit the Tybee Island Marine Science Center. The center has developed an education program to launch in 2018. This is an important part of how we can connect our local communities to our local whales.

"Lines & Strikes" will be open to the public on Friday, February 9th from 12 - 9PM and on Saturday, February 10th from noon - 5PM.

January Photo Group Critique

January 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 are aiming to provide a forum for photographers/photographic 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. 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. 

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.

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) 

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

Feel free to invite your friends that might be interested!

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

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.

"Margins" by Henry Dean - Closing Reception & Artist Talk

Join us for the Closing Reception and Artist Talk on Saturday, January 13th from 5 to 7PM, featuring Henry Dean, 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. Henry will be discussing his exhibition "Margins."

“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.
