Uncommon Exposures: Photography in Craft Based Media
October 8, 2016 – January 22, 2017
Contemporary craft artists are equipped with an ever-growing availability of materials and technological resources, often resulting in mixed-media practices of both the two and three dimensional variety. Accordingly, Uncommon Exposures showcases how seemingly opposing practices, craft and photography, are brought together by artists through clay, fiber, jewelry, and other traditional craft-based media. In this exhibition, the provocative capabilities of both film and digital photography achieve a balance with the remarkable work of the handmade. Participating artists include Alice Benvie Gebhart, Sandra Donabed, Ashley Gilreath, Vicki Jensen, Kyle Meyer, Megumi Naitoh, Peter Olson, Wen Redmond, Chelsea Revelle, Stephen Sheffield, Jennifer Walstead, Pao Fei Yang, and Melissa Zexter.
Opening Reception: Sunday, November 6, 2:00 – 5:00 pm, This is a reception for both “Uncommon Exposures” and the Cary Wolinsky exhibition Fiber of Life.
This exhibition is sponsored by Panopticon Imaging Rockland, MA.
