Joni SternbachSURFLAND
JONI STERNBACH 


January 27 - April 22, 2012

Historic technique meets contemporary subject in the stunning luminosity of SurfLand. On the beaches of Montauk's Ditch Plains and Rhode Island to Malibu, Del Mar and Rincon in California; and most recently on Australia's Pacific coast, Sternbach's distinctive process lures surfers to pose for her camera and results in what the photographer calls "part performance, part laboratory."

 Upcoming Exhibition - Opening January 27, 2012

Curtis WehrfritzFLUIDRIVE: MODERN DAGUERREOTYPES

CURTIS WEHRFRITZ

 

 

January 27 - April 22, 2012

Work in the Fluidrive series spans over six years and is concerned with forms of lyrical and allegorical story-telling. Wehrfritz's daguerreotype images are very much concerned with an overt theatricality and an implied narrative structure in the events, scenes and characters that are depicted.

 

"The series of work, entitled 'Fluidrive' is focused on the use of ritual. I am interested in a lyric image that can be revisited by the viewer in the way one re-visits the feelings created in a song or prose." - Curtis Wehrfritz

 

March 30, 6-8 pm: ARTIST TALK AND RECEPTION

 Upcoming Exhibition - Opening March 2, 2012

Keliy Anderson-Staley[hyphen]-AMERICANS: CONTEMPORARY TINTYPE PORTRAITS

KELIY ANDERSON-STALEY

 

March 2 - May 2, 2012

These are portraits of contemporary Americans, but each one is made as a unique and un-reproducible tintype image using a technology and a technique from the middle of the nineteenth century. 

  

"Each image in this project presents a face and is titled simply with a first name. The title of the project alludes to the hyphenated character of American identities (Irish-American, African-American, etc.), while only emphasizing the shared American identity." -Keliy Anderson-Staley
 
March 2, 6-8pm: ARTIST TALK AND OPENING RECEPTION
 Upcoming Exhibition - Opening March 2, 2012

Eugene AtgetA Tale of Two Cities: Eugene Atget's Paris and Berenice Abbott's New York

 

March 2 - May 2, 2012

More than an exhibition of architectural photography, this show examines the work of two artists who were inextricably linked to each other and to the development of modern photography.

 

Berenice Abbott met Atget in 1925 when she was working as a darkroom assistant to Man Ray. Abbott was deeply and permanently affected by Atget's images, saying later that there was a sudden flash of recognition- the shock of realism unadorned.
March 2, 6-8pm: OPENING RECEPTION
