While the majority of the photographs span the 1950s through 1970s, there are some examples from earlier in the 20th century to demonstrate the longevity of this photographic style. Photographers include Diane Arbus, Esther Bubley, Yasuhiro Ishimoto, Garry Winogrand and Weegee. Photographs are on loan from the High Museum of Art, Atlanta. Free and open to the public. For more info, call 770.534.6263.

Reception: Thursday, March 7, 5:30-7 p.m.
John S. Burd Center, Leo Castelli Gallery

In this exhibition, artist Nathan Carlson investigates the relationship between the old, traditionally rural south, and new, booming metropolitan growth. The works explore themes of rural gentrification and economic displacement while finding beauty in the colors and forms that create the southern landscape. Abandoned spaces and abstracted, ethereal figures serve as observers to these transitions, quietly weathering that which they have little or no control over.  Free and open to the public. For more info, call 770.534.6263.
