Did you see that?! Exhibit Review

Many thanks to Jeff Stafford of ArtsATL who has written a review of the current exhibit, Did You See That?! Stories of Urban Oddities.  

Within this review Stafford states, "Sometimes [Steve Steinmans's] effect is taken to extremes, resulting in a sort of hyper-reality that looks more like a fantasy painting than a photograph — as in PUNKTURED, which exploits the exterior of a body piercing shop in Brighton, England, as a lurid marriage of DayGlo pink, neon aquamarine and hellish red hues."



Astutely Stafford observes that, "[The exhibit] also includes a handful of black-and-white compositions, but they tend to get lost displayed amid the color prints...There are some tantalizing standouts, however. Did You Know Flash Gordon Lived in San Francisco shows a gigantic metallic rocket, poised for blastoff, at Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco. In what is otherwise an unphotogenic urban strip, the conspicuous sculpture represents an irrepressible but quintessential aspect of the area’s eclectic appeal."

NEW EXHIBIT: Did you see that?! Stories of Urban Oddities



The Spruill Gallery will open Did you see that?! Stories of Urban Oddities featuring photographs from Atlanta-based artist, Steve Steinman, on August 21st. The opening reception will be held Thursday, August 21 from 6-9pm and will run until October 25th at the Spruill Gallery.


The exhibit, held in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography, dictates a subtle commentary on the anomalies often missed in everyday life. From the odd attraction on the side of a highway to street performers; from public art to the delicate beauty found in architecture, Steinman captures evolving lifestyles present in the unnoticed and overlooked people, places and things that have become a part of our lives.



Spruill Gallery will host an Artist Talk with Steve Steinman on Saturday, September 27 at 1pm. Steve Steinman will share what inspires him in the creation of his pictorial urban tales, including his use of contemporary technologies to create photographs that serve as both historical evidence and conveyers of art and passion.


Atlanta Celebrates Photography aims to make Atlanta a leading center for the world's fastest growing art form. By producing the largest annual community-oriented photo festival in the United States, ACP provides experiences that engage and educate diverse audiences through lens-based media.
