During the month of October, Pace Academy will be participating in Atlanta Celebrates Photography, or ACP. The Atlanta Journal Constitution describes ACP as “one of the most important and sophisticated public art projects in Atlanta… a powerful experience.” This year is the 17th annual festival and Pace’s 15th year hosting.

“We got them even before the High Museum did,” said art teacher France Dorman. He has known co-founder of ACP, Corrine Adams, for many years and helps her promote ACP by making sure that Pace hosts an October exhibit every year. There are over 100 venues in the Metro Atlanta area this year including Pace Academy’s Fine Arts Center.

During the month of October, Katheryn Kolb’s “Symmetries of Nature” exhibition will be on display in the FAC. Kolb’s exhibit captures landscapes and architecture in nature at many unique and aesthetically pleasing angles. She presents a rather abstract view of nature using different photograph techniques. She will host an artist’s talk in the FAC from 7 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 29.

Students from the photography-based India Global Education trip from last summer will display their work in the FAC during the month of November. They have been working hard on their own and with Mr. Dorman to edit, create and print their work, which captures everyday life in India. The exhibit will include photos taken by juniors Laura Shelton, Sari Leven, Sophie Zelony, Taylor Upchurch and Libby Sams, along with seniors Haley Hartman, Lindsey Sample and Frances Crisler.
