Call For Entries: People, Places, Things

Atlanta Photography Group (APG) is now taking entries for PEOPLE, PLACES, THINGS - APG's collaborative exhibition that will be featured at the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center in Madison, Ga. The exhibition will be juried by Samuel Gerace, Photography Curator, Booth Museum.

Juror: Dr. Samuel Gerace III

Dr. Samuel Gerace III is the Curator of Photography at the Booth Western Art Museum. He studied Fine Art at Shorter University, focusing on traditional oil and egg tempera painting along with darkroom techniques and materials. Samuel received his Masters and Ph.D. from the University of Edinburgh in Art History, while he received his second Masters in Celtic Studies from the University of Wales. His research areas include: medieval art, historical photography, alternative photography processes, and the power of art to create memories and inspire beliefs.

Venue: Madison-Morgan Cultural Center

The Madison-Morgan Cultural Center is a non-profit, multidisciplinary performing and visual arts facility. The Center occupies an elegantly restored 1895 Romanesque Revival Building and is located in the heart of Madison, Georgia's National Register Historic District. As one of the first graded public schools in the Southeast, it operated as a school until 1957. Following an extensive renovation, the building reopened in 1976 as the Madison-Morgan Cultural Center. Since that time, the Center has been recognized for its restoration and adaptive reuse of the award-winning structure as well as its reputation for excellence in arts and humanities programming. The original school bell still rings for many visitors who enjoy the Center's programs.
