|Two Pace/ACP events to catch this fall|
Pace Academy is set to participate in Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) for the ninth consecutive year, with two month-long exhibits. During the month of October ACP will feature the works of local, regional and national photographers in more than 100 venues throughout Atlanta.
The October exhibit at Pace will feature photographs by Gary Gruby, a judge in the 2010 Pace Photography competition. “Unrehearsed Perfection An Exhibit of Portraits, Given” runs Oct. 1-29. A reception for the artist will be held in the Fine Arts Center at Pace Academy Oct. 8, 7-9 p.m.
Southeastern photographer Gruby works in the classic traditions of black and white fine art photography. Equally fluent in the techniques of modern archival color photography, he produces prints to the highest contemporary standards. He is well known throughout the southeast for his commissioned portraiture as well as fine art botanicals.
Gruby has been a successful commercial photographer for more than 25 years, working with regional and national companies such as Russell Athletic, CNN, Delta Airlines, Kelloggs and Kroger. Gruby’s photographic portraits and botanical prints are in collections across the United States and selections from his botanical series have recently won awards, including “Best In Show” in the fine art photography competition at the annual Atlanta Southeastern Flower Show – the largest flower show in the Southeast.
The November exhibit, “Pearl of Africa – Uganda” features photographs taken during a school trip by a Pace teacher, students and an alumna in the summer of 2010. The work of Kristi Odom ‘98, teacher France Dorman, Taylor Gordon ‘11 and Sage Roberts ’11 will be on display Nov. 1-30.
The public is invited to view the exhibits throughout October and November from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Pace Fine Arts Center at 966 W. Paces Ferry Road, Atlanta. For more information contact France Dorman at firstname.lastname@example.org
