Save Our Date: Oct. 6, ACP 20th Anniversary Auction Gala

June 7th, 2018
Announcing our Honorary Chairpersons for the 2018 ACP Auction Gala!

Laura Adams and Andrew Feiler will add both style and substance to the 2018 festivities. Laura is a nationally exhibited visual artist. Her signature collage technique employs meticulous layering to create seemingly three-dimensional works celebrating themes of nature. Andrew, Laura's husband, is an artistic and documentary photographer. He serves on numerous boards, is active in civic endeavors, and is as a conscientious advisor to elected officials and political candidates.

Together Laura and Andrew opened Brickworks Gallery on the Atlanta BeltLine in late 2016. Featuring the work of over 25 artists, Brickworks Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the work of talented and inspired artists whose work tells compelling stories.

Let's join together and celebrate photography in Atlanta on October 6th! Tickets available soon.

Spencer Sloan has a piece in Ones2Watch "Kim Kardashian - Spotted in Los Angeles, April 29, 2015" (curated by Mary Stanley) for the ACP Photography Auction & Gala.

Peruse the ACP Photography Auction & Gala catalog (pdf), place bids on Paddle8 (on both live auction items & Ones2Watch) and buy your tickets today!

"Spencer Sloan, a native Atlantan, is a mixed-media artist and pop culture blogger who holds a BFA in Painting from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of GA in Athens. His work explores the obsession with celebrity culture, the invasion of privacy and the complex issues of ownership of image, appropriation and copyright. In his process, Sloan digitally manipulates hi-res paparazzi photographs into pure abstraction with a series of image- corrupting applications - a commentary on societal values in relation to contemporary pop culture. His work can be seen in contemporary publications like Common Creative ATL, A|NO magazine, the Atlantan and Fast Company, and is in prestigious contemporary collections like the Dolby Laboratories Collection in San Francisco. His work has been exhibited widely in Atlanta, Athens, Savannah and San Francisco and he is represented by Spalding Nix Fine Art, Atlanta, GA."

She holds an Associates Degree in Photography from the Art Institute of Atlanta (2012). Her photograph Roots is a self-portrait paying homage to the artist's early life in the South.
