John Gutmann – My Eyes Were Fresh

Sunday October 2, 2022, 2 PM @ Breman Museum
Presentation by Filmmaker Jane Levy Reed

John Gutmann, 1934

Lumière and the Breman Museum are pleased to announce a presentation by San Francisco filmmaker Jane Levy Reed on the life and work of John Gutmann. Reed, a friend of Gutmann, is the director of the film: My Eyes Were Fresh: The Life and Photographs of John Gutmann. Drawing on her personal relationship with the artist, Reed will discuss his life as a photographer, painter and educator, highlighting the influences that formed Gutmann’s unique career in Germany and the United States.

The talk will be in support of the exhibition, Culture Shock: Photography by John Gutmann, currently on view at the Breman Museum in midtown Atlanta, 1440 Spring St. NW. Culture Shock focuses on an early period of creative flowering for the Jewish photographer, a German refugee who arrived in the U.S. during the Great Depression.  The exhibition showcases over 60 vivid images of American popular culture that Gutmann captured as only an outsider could.

In honor of International Peace Day, we are showcasing the work of Jon Kolkin, from his body of work Inner Harmony.

Since 1982, the International Day of Peace has begun with the ringing of the Peace Bell at the United Nations headquarters, New York.

Peace means so much more than an absence of war. More ordinary conflicts arise from disputes with family, colleagues and neighbours and these disturb our sense of peace. Making peace with one person today, even if it is just with yourself, is a fitting way to mark the day. Light a candle, reflect, forgive and enjoy being tranquil.

Parents, do you reward your children when they share toys and help each other? Learning how to solve disputes without aggression is a great way to enjoy peace day. A sponsored toddle can raise funds for peace charities and tire out the little ones. Bliss!

Peace needs building, not just celebrating. Make everyday your day of peace as you work towards harmony at home, school, work and in the community.
