After years of running “Beauty Everyday” as a source of inspiration, refuge and reference online, Kristen Bach, Rebecca Wood and Rinne Allen are putting their collection of pictures into print. Brought together by their time creating works at R. Wood Studio Ceramics, the three women have all found a common desire to capture shots of everyday beauty through photography. Each is involved with her own artistic endeavors that have contributed to Athens’ creative community. Bach is the owner of popular kids shop and DIY craft center Treehouse; Wood translated her love of painting into pottery by founding R. Wood Studio, and Allen is an Athens native and professional photographer. A 10-year daydream come true, the book provides a total of 365 photographs that reflect themes of Southern beauty and identity—images of native flora, patina and landscapes discovered in and around Athens. The book provides one photo per day and a page marker to follow along, but viewers can naturally flip through all at once to observe the seasons transform. If you can’t make it out to the reception, Beauty Everyday can be preordered online at www.beautyeveryday.com/book. The reception lasts from 6-8 pm and is free.
