Light + Metal
Unique Photographs and Objects

Opening: Friday, July 27, 5 – 7 PM
On View: July 27 – September 15, 2018

David Emitt Adams, Kate Breakey, Vanessa Marsh, Nissa Kubly, Mike Jackson, Anne Arden McDonald, Heather Oelklaus, Kevin O’Connell, David Ondrik, Meghann Riepenhoff, Claire A. Warden, Julie Weber, Vanessa Woods and Lori Vrba

The 14 artists in Light + Metal are reacting to the proliferation of digital photographic technologies by experimenting with traditional, metal-based processes and materials, including silver-gelatin paper, cyanotype, and wet collodion, to create unique photographic objects — often without using a camera.

Works in Light + Metal employ 19th and 20th-century processes to address three main concerns, the first of which confronts a core tenet of photography: rendering light on a surface. In some works, such as those by Julie Weber and Michael Jackson, light itself becomes the subject. Other artists, including Meghann Riepenhoff, Anne Arden McDonald, and David Ondrik, push the boundaries of photographic materials. All the works included in Light + Metal challenge the notion of a photograph as a convincing representational image.

Arte Urbano del Ecuador. Photographs of Ecuadorian Street Art by Carl Moore

Artist Reception and Book Signing
Friday, July 6th, 2018, 5-7 pm
Exhibition continues through August 25th, 2018

Amazed by the quality and expression of a wall painting in the town square of Kumbaya, Carl Moore began photographing street art during his first visit to Ecuador. Moore's images serve to create lasting documents of these ephemeral yet important public statements. To create authentic street art, or arte urbano – the preferred Ecuadorian term, many of the artists risk their own safety painting at night in abandoned locations, and can incur substantial personal costs. Their work can reactivate dormant places, balance persuasive advertising, and create a site specific dialogue between the artist and their community.

"I photograph street art because I like much of the art and I admire the talent, courage and world views of the artists. My personal passion — how people create and recreate their communities – is in sync with why many street artists do what they do, and I am intrigued by how they live their art."
— Carl Moore

Bryant Austin: Solar Transit

Bryant Austin’s Solar Transit reveals the sun’s surface in vivid detail, as viewed through Earth’s varied atmospheric states. The result is a striking series of black-and-white images defamiliarizing our view of the sun and its relation to the landscape. Dramatic landscape elements anchor the experience to challenge our perceptions of reality and our place within an infinite void. Bryant believes that the disconnection we experience from one another, from nature, and the universe is an illusion, and seeks to deconstruct the divisions we create between subjects and found in nature and contemporary photography.

"Everything I create expresses awareness that every photograph taken throughout history is a self-portrait of the cosmos. It is this feeling of connectedness that I seek to convey through every photograph." – Bryant Austin

Michael Lange
Michael Lange's latest series, BERG, meaning mountain in German, is a study of the ephemeral and solid. Photographed in the French Alps, the atmospheric images in BERG elicit notions of transformation as the mountainscape's solid presence merges with surrounding elemental forces. Overall, BERG as a series, represents a meditative exploration of our relationship with landscape.
