Emily Amy Gallery is pleased to present Shared Southern Stories, only its second-ever exhibition to include photography, in conjunction with Atlanta Celebrates Photography. The Oxford American, a regional literary magazine highlighting the Southeast, provided the impetus for this show by featuring an exceptional group of artists in their 2012 Visual Arts Issue. The show features 9 talented painters and photographers from the list who have lived and worked in the South at some point in their lifetime. By drawing upon more traditional concepts of the South and all the while bucking those traditions, these 9 thoughtful artists reveal an honest look at contemporary life at 'home'. Please join us in celebrating the opening reception of the exhibition, Friday, October 19th, from 7-10 pm.
