While we still aspire to be known for our photography books, we branched out to support a local museum on the publication of their first book. We started an imprint called Two Paths Press where we hope to do more of these kinds of books - that is, working with small and mid-size institutions on projects seminal to their mission and collection.
We jumped at the chance to work with the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia on a monograph for celebrated Georgia painter - Hebert Creecy - the most renowned artist of abstract expressionism in the South. The book coincides with an exhibition of his major paintings at the museum. The exhibition is on view until August 20th and it's well worth a visit.
The book features essays by Dan R. Talley (Professor at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania and co-founding editor of Art Papers); Beth Gardiner Lytle (PhD from Emory University and former MOCA GA intern); Annette Cone-Skelton (Director of MOCA GA and friend of Creecy); and the transcript of a conversation with several of Creecy's friends and colleagues (Shephard Ansley, Alston Glenn, Alfred Kennedy, and Annette Cone-Skelton). In addition to the texts and plates of major paintings, the book features numerous sketches, photographs of Creecy and photographs of his studio. It's truly a tribute to the celebrated painter, and we're honored to be associated with it.
Some pictures of the book below. Enjoy!
