The Atlanta Daily World will host its third “World of Pictures” reception on Thursday, March 28, and let guests bid on and take home the work of some of Atlanta’s most extraordinary photographers.
“We are thrilled to share the talents of these photographers who have graced the pages of our newspapers for many years,” said ADW Publisher M. Alexis Scott. “This is a chance of a lifetime to get a collector’s item to adorn your walls.”
The evening event at the Atlanta University Center Woodruff Library includes a silent auction of recent and historic pictures and a forum featuring the photographers themselves. Photographers John Glenn, Horace Henry, JiMi!, Sue Ross, Wendell S. Scott, Bud Smith, Rashidah Sudan, Willie E. Tucker Jr. and Brenda J. Turner will share stories and answer questions about some of their favorite shots and thrilling moments.
“We are happy to partner with the Atlanta Daily World to present this exhibit of local photographers to complement our show on the work of the Pittsburgh Courier’s renowned Teenie Harris here at the Atlanta University Center Woodruff Library,” said AUC Library CEO Loretta Parham.
The Teenie Harris exhibit of 80 images graces the walls of the library through May 24. It is also free to the public and open various hours throughout the week. Visit the library’s website at auctr.edu for specific times.
“Our ADW event is just one day,” Publisher Scott said, “so you really don’t want to miss this unique opportunity.”
The event begins with a reception at 6 p.m. and the forum begins at 7 p.m. The silent auction runs until 7:30 p.m. Admission is free but you must make a reservation at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 404-761-1114 ext 20.
