Picturing Home: Friends of Emory Visual Arts Juried Photography Exhibition
Emory Visual Arts Gallery
December 3, 2009 - January 29, 2010

Entry fee: $35 (includes membership in Friends of Emory Visual Arts)

Jurors: Julian Cox, curator of photography at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, and Jason Francisco, associate professor of photography and chair of the Visual Arts Department at Emory University

What is home, and where is it? What does it mean to look for home, to find home, to lose home, to be at home? In whose company does home arise? Under what circumstances? At what cost? How is “home” being impacted by the current economic crisis in America? The Visual Arts Gallery at Emory University invites submissions to a juried photography exhibition on these and related issues: images (and combinations of images and words) that investigate, comment on and test various dimensions of “home”—in its familiarity and unfamiliarity, its pleasures and discomforts, its communal and personal aspects.

7th Biennial Georgia Perimeter Sculpture Exhibit
Call for Artists
January 25 - March 5, 2010

No entry fee, no commissions — entries can be submitted by mail or e-mail.

Slides or digital image files on a CD or emailed are all acceptable if sent with a completely filled-out, signed/dated entry form. Please provide SASE for return of slides/CD. Entered work will be reviewed from both photographic images and live viewings when possible, with the selection process and acceptances occurring during the final months of 2009 through January 12, 2010

Due to space considerations, accepted submissions will be limited to one sculpture or installation per artist with no more than twenty sculptors accepted in total. Work must be able to be installed on the grounds of the campus in specified existing sites with minimal impact upon the existing landscape, and the site must be restored by the artist to it’s original state at the close of the exhibit. Work must remain on site for the duration of the exhibit period, and the work shall be non-hazardous for viewers and able to withstand the effects of exposure to the weather for the six week duration of the exhibit. The sculptor’s choice of installation in specific available sites will be on a first-come, first serve basis in subject to the approval of both GPC Fine Arts Department and Landscaping and Grounds personnel.

The work will be installed at the sculptor’s risk — as the work will be installed in public space there will be no insurance coverage, though it should be noted that campus security does make regular patrols day and night.

October - January ongoing submission proposals reviewed for exhibit. Click here for more information and a prospectus.

Diane Solomon Kempler


Atlanta, GA, October 13, 2009 - Visitors to Freedom Park near North Avenue will notice a new addition to the landscape: Diane Solomon Kempler’s 1996 Olympic sculpture commission “New Endings.” To celebrate the newly completed re-installation, the Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia (WCAGA) will sponsor an Artist’s Lecture and reception at Emory University to honor Kempler and better acquaint the public with the range of her work.

Kempler will discuss the influence of her travels and artist residencies; frequent international travel awards and residencies have brought her in contact with cultures, ideas, and craftspeople from around the world. Reviewing Kempler’s recent exhibit “Divine Chaos” Russell Cook described her work as an “attempt to conjure the intangible from the corporeal, using the earth to call the heavens.”

Diane Solomon Kempler has been active as an artist and teacher for over 20 years. Born in New York City, she graduated with a degree in philosophy from Brandeis University and subsequently studied Architecture at Harvard University and Ceramics at Penland Center for Crafts. An influential teacher and mentor, Kempler is on the Emory Visual Arts faculty and taught ceramic sculpture at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center for many years. She was a founder of the Atlanta Women’s Art Collective and gave the first public program for the newly formed Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia in 2001.

As a project of the Corporation for Olympic Development in Atlanta (CODA), Kempler created and installed the bronze fountain sculpture called “New Endings,” in downtown Atlanta in 1996. The sculpture has been relocated to Freedom Park near the intersection of Euclid and North Avenues and will be rededicated in a ceremony held at the site on October 22, at 11:30am.

Both events are free and open to the public. Kempler’s lecture will be held at 3 pm on Sunday, November 1, 2009, in the media room at the Emory Visual Arts Building, 700 Peavine Creek Drive, on the Emory University Campus.

The Women’s Caucus for Art of Georgia (WCAGA) is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization based in Atlanta. It is a chapter of the National Women’s Caucus for Art (WCA), founded in 1972. WCA is committed to providing opportunities for the exhibition and recognition of women’s work as well as offering educational events for both members and the public.
