Vapor Trail | Michael Kirchoff | $750, unframed $600

Michael has spent his years capturing the still image of people, cultures, and landscapes from around the world, to around the block, with a very unique and distinctive style. A native Californian, Michael resides in Los Angeles, though equally at home trudging through Redwood forests, riding the rails deep into Siberia, or navigating the chaotic streets of Tokyo.

Untitled | Nancy Scherl | $900 edition of 3, plus 2 APs

Nancy was introduced to photography as a child and has been intrigued by lens-based media ever since. At six years old, she would arrange her stuffed animals into a group and ask her father to photograph them for her. It was then when her interest in staging and Pictorialism began. This creative vision underlies her work as she creates hyper-real cinematic worlds with her photographic eye.

 

She received her B.A from the University of Wisconsin in Madison where she explored documentary and fine art genres of photography and received a M.F.A. from the School of Visual Arts in New York City from the Photography, Video and Related Media Department. Based in New York City, Nancy has been awarded numerous prizes and exhibited nationally and internationally.

Graceful | Leslie Jean Bart | $900

 

Born in Haiti where he acquired his love for the ocean, Leslie Jean-Bart now lives in New York City.

He works predominantly in the medium of photography. After earning a master’s degree in Journalism from Columbia University, Jean-Bart embarked on a photography career that resulted in the creation of images that have garnered awards and recognition.

Earlier days found Jean-Bart on staff at Sotheby’s and Christies where he was surrounded daily by the world’s greatest art.

Jean-Bart began exhibiting in 2001, when a number of his collages were part of the exhibit “Committed To The Image: Contemporary Black Photographers” at the Brooklyn Museum.  From 2001-2003 he took part in a number of group exhibits at Monique Goldstrom Gallery in SoHo, NYC. During the last several years Jean-Bart put his career, but not his art on hold. Committed to the care of his mother who has dementia, Jean-Bart became her daily guardian. (His mother passed away in February of 2019). During one of the most trying period of taking care of his mother, Jean-Bart started “Reality & Imagination”, his ongoing series of ten years.

In 2011 Jean-Bart finally received round the clock assistance care for his mother and began again pursuing exhibiting his work. Since then he has taken part in several group exhibitions in the United states and had received a number of honors. He also had three solo exhibitions since then: one at Xavier University in New Orleans, one at the virtual gallery of the Griffin Museum of Photography, and the most recent one at the Kenkeleba Gallery in NYC.

South X Southeast PhotoGallery B&B

 

Located one hour south of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport South x Southeast PhotoGallery and BnB sits on a 30-acre, 4th generation farm outside the small town of Molena. Not only does the 1930 barn serve as a photogallery for emerging and established fine art photographers, it is also a B&B loved by many guests! Come stay with us in the quiet countryside and enjoy fine art, walks in the woods, a fireplace out back and an upstairs loft with a view of the fields and farm.

 

 

 

 

The upstairs loft is our guest quarters with a double bed, seating, and a writing table. A queen-sized air mattress is available for the 3rd guest.

 

The back of the loft has big, comfy lounge chairs with ottomans, and overlooks the five acre field backed by 30+ acres of woodlands. The original tin roof and rafters serve as the upstairs ceiling with a new tin roof over that – it’s the one vacation spot where you’ll hope it rains while you’re here! There are books, magazines, and board games available, along with lots of quiet space in which to enjoy them.

 

Downstairs is your kitchen complete with microwave oven, toaster oven, hot plate, full refrigerator, coffee and tea accompaniments. There is a bar where you may sit and enjoy your meals, or you’re welcome to use the long table in the gallery space. An extra large bathroom with a camp shower completes the downstairs.

 

Downstairs also houses the photo gallery, with exhibitions changing every 6-8 weeks.

 

And there is also a small wood-burning stove if you prefer wood to central heat.

 

 

The breezeway entrance was originally where my grandfather kept his tractor. But now it’s our screened porch dining and relaxing area. The big daybed is a great place to fall asleep reading a book or to curl up in the evenings with a glass of wine. The dining table seats 8 and offers you a space to spread out for dinners or writing, or catching up on the computer.

 

And out back is the patio and raised fireplace – the perfect height to prop your feet up on the hearth and keep them warm in front of a roaring fire.
