Watershed and Precious Things Recall Early...
Thursday, February 2nd
This past Friday I ventured over to the Jennifer Schwartz Gallery for the dual opening of Watershed and Precious Things. While Watershed offers an environmentally conscious study of the relationship between man and his power to manipulate his surroundings, specifically focusing on the impact in the French Broad River Basin and the Tennessee Valley, Precious Things presents a group show featuring the small and intimate works of Heidi Kirkpatrick, Jefferson Hayman, Lori Vrba, and Lisette de Boisblanc, a stark contrast to Watershed‘s large format images and sprawling landscape photography.VIEW WEBSITE

"I feel like I'm at my prom!" Chapel Hill photographer Lori Vrba whispered to us Wednesday night as her "Southern Comfort" photography exhibition at West Midtown's Jennifer Schwartz Gallery inspired the first-ever ArtFeast dinner. "Only I'm not 17, stupid, there's an amazing chef in the kitchen and I got to help plan the menu! Could it get better than this?!"VIEW WEBSITE
Lori Vrba’s Southern Comfort Finds Strangeness...
Wednesday, January 4th
In Lori Vrba’s photography, comfort comes from rich visual textures and poignancy of natural surroundings. Her show Southern Comfort, at Jennifer Schwartz Gallery until January 28, is a mélange of photographs that speaks to a love of the medium. Yet within the works resides a tension and unease between the photographer and the people and places around her.VIEW WEBSITE
Flatlands in the Outlands: Photographs from...
Monday, December 12th
The Mississippi Delta and Louisiana Bayou have long lured photographers enchanted by their wide expanses of flat alluvial land and moss draped swamps, their single stoplight towns and rural architecture. Here a photographer sees the markers of preindustrial agricultural societies—the boarded plantation store, the lonely white-framed Missionary Baptist church surrounded by cotton fields, a culture rigidly stratified by race and class.VIEW WEBSITE

And now she's planning to take her show on the road, launching a "Crusade for Collecting" in which she proposes to visit 10 American cities in a van that will proffer photos much the way a food truck dishes up gourmet tacos.VIEW WEBSITE
Q&A: Jennifer Schwartz Talks Shop...
Tuesday, October 25th
Wet Plate and Mirrors, an exhibit at Jennifer Schwartz Gallery featuring contemporary Daguerreotype and tintype photography, captures a subject through the tedious stillness necessary for the slow development of these archaic processes. The constrained pose and tense gaze of the sitter reveals a caged-animal sensibility that connects the trapped image to the spectator—reflecting a kind of captivity on both ends.VIEW WEBSITE

Lisette de Boisblanc

Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Lisette de Boisblanc had just left for college when Hurricane Katrina hit her beloved city. She was beginning studies in animal health, but this life changing event caused her to shift gears and explore fine arts. Now back in New Orleans with a degree in photography, Lisette has created a new series, Taken by the Fog, that is inspired by her grandmother's ruined doll collection after the hurricane.VIEW WEBSITE

When the two exhibitions, Escape and Sun and Shadow, opened at Jennifer Schwartz Gallery late last month, the space was packed to the point that I decided to return at a later date to see what the show was really about. The photographs seemed a little odd, but, on the second visit, one walk through the entire show from front to back made it clear that I shouldn’t have left so quickly.VIEW WEBSITE

Gallery Visit: Jennifer Schwartz
Friday, May 28th
It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to produce an interview, but this week I got to visit Jennifer Schwartz at her gallery. We talked about the “Kindred” show, with work by Kisa Kavass and Lori Vrba, selected by Atlanta Celebrates Photography Executive Director Amy Miller during last year’s “Fresh Perspectives,” and also about recent changes at the gallery. “Kindred” is beautiful and meticulously crafted work. You should go and see for yourself.VIEW WEBSITE
