Paper Work: Jerry Reed

Jerry Reed, Paper Work 11, 2011.  


Jerry Reed constructs paper sculptures, which he illuminates with hard light and photographs. The result is Reed's cleverly titled Paper Work, a series of lyrical and intriguing abstract photographs in black and white. Though highly formal, Paper Work engages with broader topics, such as social responsibility and avant-garde experimentation.

Identity and the Photographic Portrait  

Caleb Cole, Myra Greene, Lorenzo Triburgo 
September 3 - October 12, 2013 
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 12, 2013, 6:30-8pm 
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 
Lorenzo Triburgo, Ocean Breeze (Seven), from the series Transportraits, 2009/2013.  Lorenzo Triburgo, 2009.
As a means of exploring issues of identity, contemporary artists have been using photography to examine aspects of themselves and others. In the age of the Internet, avatars, online personalities and profiles, as well as obsessive online documentation of one's activities and characteristics, identity has become more fluid, pluralistic, multifaceted, detailed and yet, at times, illusive and elusive. The artists featured in Framed rely on photography's promise to present "truth" or "reality" to explore, reveal, and conceal aspects of the complex subject of identity. In some cases, the artists rely on photography's promise to present "reality" to create and authenticate fictitious identities or role-playing. Overall, the artists in this exhibition challenge our beliefs and assumptions about identity and the photographic portrait.



Collier Heights: Lydia A. Harris

September 3 - October 12, 2013 
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 12, 2013, 6:30-8pm 
PRC Gallery, 832 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 
Collier Heights is a neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia that was developed, financed, designed, and constructed in the 1950s and 1960s predominantly by and for African Americans. In addition to portraits of homeowners, Lydia Harris' photographs of rooms reflect the social, historical, and cultural uses of space. Her poignant documentary photographs, in the words of the artist, "tell a story of the Collier Heights community-the interconnected lives, from the beginning when the residents had few other choices of where to live to the present when their neighborhood has been recognized for its architecture and the tight knit bonds among its residents."

Jerry Berndt (1943-2013): A Remembrance by Eugene Richards


"It's been about two weeks since I and about twenty other people received an email that began, "Jerry left us for good earlier this week." The Jerry being referred to was my longtime friend, the photographer Jerry Berndt; the author of the email was Marie-Pascale, his wife, who, I would come to learn later, was writing at a time when the stress and sense of sorrow was overwhelming. Still the terse and enigmatic email sent many of those who received it into a confused state of both knowing and not knowing, of hoping against hope that we'd misunderstood her words."
