If you’re in Atlanta this weekend, be sure to check out the exhibit Home, on view at the Hagedorn Foundation Gallery until April 18. From the Hagedorn’s website:
The Hagedorn Foundation Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of “Home,” a group exhibition featuring the works of six southern photographers and an LA videographer. Apropos of our times, the artists explore the concept of ‘home,’ locating this increasingly ephemeral idea in the context of physical buildings and their environs or, as a last refuge, in the self. By using paired and opposing images, appending annotated comments and/or creating or appropriating tableaux, these photographers each make a statement about the increasingly slippery idea of a cozy, secure home base in the world.

The show was reviewed by Burnaway.org. An excerpt:
Meryl Truett achieves a nostalgic effect by transferring photographs of the coastal and rural South onto antique tin ceiling tiles. Her Cotton Field with Shadow has a painterly, even impressionistic effect, recalling Claude Monet’s poppy field paintings.
One of the delights in the show is Truett’s collection of 18 photographic transfers of famous female literary figures. Portraits of Charlotte Brontë, Virginia Woolf, Flannery O’Connor, and others on pocket-sized ceiling tiles echo the preciosity of 19th century tintypes. Aligned in a grid, the images recall a wall of family portraits.
