VIEWPOINTS - A SEVEN-MEMBER PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION
On Sunday, October 29, I will be doing an artist's talk about my work in the group photography exhibition, "Viewpoints". This show features the artistry of seven accomplished photographers, each of whom will be discussing their work and answering questions at an Art Brunch in the gallery of Arts Mid-Hudson, the venue and sponsor for the exhibition. Please note that this date represents the END of the show, so it's the last day you can see it. Arts Mid-Hudson is located at 696 Dutchess Turnpike, Poughkeepsie, NY 12603, next to On Location Studios and is open (apart from special events) Monday - Friday, 9-5:30.
I'm very excited about this show because my work reaches both a new area of exploration and a new level of accomplishment. I explore abstractions of curves and light in black and white, with the nature of the original objects taking a back seat to the abstractions themselves. The prints are all on metal and the series is tight and has been called "extremely intriguing", "fascinating" and "beautiful". I chose curves because they are both organic and geometrical, and possess a fluid depth and grace very accessible to the viewer.
I am also very pleased to have my work shown alongside these very talented and passionate photographers, each with their own distinct style and interests. This show results from a culmination of salon meetings with this group in which everyone grew and benefited from each other's experience and inspiration.
A review of the show that appeared in the Poughkeepsie Journal can be read here. I invite everyone to see it and to support Arts Mid-Hudson for the wonderful work they do in supporting all the arts and artists in the Mid-Hudson region.
EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
I'm also participating in the next group show, Eye of the Beholder, at Artists' Collective of Hyde Park. There will be an opening Saturday, October 28 from 5:30-8:30 pm at their gallery at 4338 Albany Post Road, Hyde Park, NY 12538. About 25 accomplished member artists in an interesting variety of 2D mediums and styles will be showing their work. This show will be on display through November 26, 2017. We hope you can join us!
