From D. Dominick Lombardi’s article and conversation with Anita Arliss regarding “Tell Me a Story,” the exhibition they co-curated as part of the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Festival 2016:
DDL: One of the things I enjoyed most about our particular selection and process for TELL ME a STORY was seeing new work. I curate quite a few shows each year and it’s always good to learn about outstanding artists I’ve never heard before now. In particular, I think the narratives in the art of Lissa Rivera, Keris Salmon, Susan Carr and Zsolt Bátori to be the most compelling. Their works pull you right in and hold you captive like a moth to light, while the stories they put forth are deep and rather expansive in the viewer’s mind.
