Closing Reception, November 7, 4 PM - 7 PM | Jack Mitchell, American photographer and author, was best known for his photographs of American artists, dancers, film and theatre performers, musicians and writers. This exhibition features photographs from the book Icons & Idols: A Photographer’s Chronicle of the Arts, 1960-1995 that are now part of the permanent collection of the Atlantic Center for the Arts. These masterfully printed selenium-toned, gelatin silver prints were completed during a 35 year period in New York City and represent highlights of Mitchell’s portrait work. From actress Julie Andrews to operatic soprano and concert singer Barbara Hendricks, this display is a celebration of women who have simultaneously balanced high profile careers with the intricacies of motherhood. Gallery viewing by appointment. To schedule, email community@atlanticcenterforthearts.org or call (386) 423-1753.

ACA at Harris House, 214 S. Riverside Drive, New Smyrna Beach, FL
ACA Soundscape Field Station at Canaveral National Seashore presents an exhibition by 2020 artist in residence, Dr. Nathan Wolek. "My interests are now focused on locations where people intentionally go to be in closer contact with nature like our state and national parks. These places have such interesting overlaps between human, wildlife, and Earth generated sounds. I tend to exhaustively explore certain locations by recording them over and over, then edit that material into a sound collage that represents that location," says Dr. Wolek.
The exhibition at ACA Harris House features Dr. Wolek's sound mapping visual experience alongside his field recording audio from Canaveral National Seashore. This event is in partnership with ShORE 2020. ACA Soundscape Field Station is sponsored by Friends of Canaveral and the City of New Smyrna Beach.
