The following weekend, Saturday, February 22nd from 2 to 4 p.m., will be the opening reception for "Southern Values." This show will also be on display through April 25th.

5th Annual "Stand in Ansel Adams' Footsteps" Juried Competition and Exhibition, showing in the Georgia Gallery and Rowe Promenade, is a presentation of the Gwinnett Chapter of the Georgia Nature Photographer's Association's annual competition.
Beginning as their way of paying tribute to the legendary Ansel Adams, this annual competition has grown not only in the number of participants, but also in the quality of the work submitted. The concept and goal of "Stand in Ansel Adams' Footsteps" is to shoot in Black and White (monochrome) to emulate as closely as possible the style, look, and feel of his work. Submissions will be judged by this year's juror Mark Green, an accomplished award-winning commercial photographer and videographer.
"Southern Values" will be showing in the Fowler Gallery and Kistner Atrium. Through this exhibition, three Georgia women artists - Joni Mabe, Shanequa Gay, and Amanda Greene- pay homage to that which is truly Southern. These artists have a special talent for finding beauty and value in the simple pleasures of daily life…but they are also looking for more.
