Ode To Magritte in CAMERA OBSCURA at Uforge Gallery
Reception: Friday, February 5 6-9 PM
Uforge Gallery presents an invitational photography exhibition for the month of February, titled Camera Obscura.
As a medium, photography has gone through a vast range of technical changes, becoming more and more available so that now almost everyone has access to a camera. As an art form, it has gone through seemingly every style, moving from photojournalism and portraiture to surreal experimentation and digital collage. To celebrate this stylistic diversity, Uforge has invited a group of local photographers to display their own range of subjects and techniques. Whether through spontaneous street photography or staged scenes, the exhibit represents how photographers can capture almost anything. Works include minimalist seascapes by Erica Baptiste and Michael Calienes, striking abstractions by Elizabeth Bean and Vanessa Thompson, and fantastical composites by Matt McKee and Richard Fomo.
“Uforge is always looking to create new opportunities for local artists, and we are excited to once again host an allphotography show,” said Brian Crete, Director of Uforge Gallery. “Pieces were selected by a member committee, allowing the gallery collective to work together and reach out to new artists to bring into the space.”
Exhibiting artists: Leah Abrahams, Erica Baptiste, Elizabeth Bean, Jonathan Beckley, Nate Buchman, Michael Calienes, Beth Cuddy, Alissa Curcuru, Richard Fomo, David Guerra, Douglas Hodgkins, Morgan LaForge, Matt McKee, Jillian Melnyk, Nabin Mulepati, Nicholas Paskert, Luke Pech, Robin Radin, Charlie Rosenberg, Shauna Tata, Vanessa Thompson, and Jon Truslow.
Camera Obscurais on view from February 528, 2016, with a reception on Friday, February 5 from 6-9 PM.
