Mary Anne Mitchell, a participating artist in "Inspired Georgia" and ACP 2016, has an opening on Friday night, Aug. 12th, at Chastain Arts Center Gallery.

"Chastain Arts Center is pleased to announce "Meet Me In My Dreams", a solo photography based exhibition by Mary Anne Mitchell. This exhibition is presented as part of Atlanta Celebrates Photography. Based on a poem written by the artist, Meet Me In My Dreams is made up of wet plate collodion images that speak to family, memory, and the ethereal passage of time. The work depicts situations, often mysterious, which evoke her southern roots. The work is created using long exposures, wet plate collodion, and digital scanning to enlarge the images which enhance the organic qualities of this medium. Also included in the exhibition are several old fashioned stereoscopic viewers with photographs which are inspired by the poem as well.

Mary Anne Mitchell is a fine art photographer working primarily with analog processes. She recently was a finalist in the 8th Edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the country and can be found in private and corporate collections across the USA, Dubai, Taiwan, and Canada. She lives and works in Atlanta, GA.
