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.
