[Guangzhou Zoo II, 2007 by Kurt Tong, 32" x 40", Edition of 5, Lambda print]

The exhibition Hey, Hot Shot! 2009 First Edition will be on view Thursday, September 10 through Saturday, September 19 at Jen Bekman Gallery. Included among the five photographers is Hong Kong-born British-educated Kurt Tong. I'm really drawn to his work, some of which is inspired by his family snapshots and recreational spaces he visited in China. Here is a small sampling of his style, above and below.

Jamie Drake is coming to Atlanta to help support DIFFA. On Thursday, September 17, Madison Gallery hosts a 3 p.m. presentation with Drake to be followed by a wine and hors d'hoeuvre reception at Deadwyler Antiques. Admission is a minimum $50 charitable contribution to DIFFA. For details or to reserve a space by September 14, contact meganbell@madisongallery.com or call 404-816-4033.

Mrs. Howard will host Tabletop Exravaganzas featuring linens, china, and crystal from William Yeoward, Dransfield & Ross, and Marc Blackwell. (The events should be a great way to find inspiration for the holiday season.) Here are the dates:

Charlotte, September 29 - 30
Atlanta, October 1 - 2
Jacksonville, October 3

And for those of you who are super-organized, the 2009 holiday card collection benefiting Children's Healthcare of Atlanta is already available. Children illustrate the cards, and 13-year-old Beth Galaid created the one above, Scarf in a Tree. $12 for 20 cards/21 envelopes. Click here to go straight to the online shop.
