Last night I drove out to the Tower of Fine Arts Center Gallery at The College at Brockport to view Regarding Place: Photo Media Invitational. Artists in the exhibition include Molly Landreth, Angela Kelly, Suzanne E. Szucs, and Pinky Bass.
Landreth exhibited photographs from her project Embodiment: A Portrait of Queer Life in America. I was first introduced to Molly’s work during the Photo 2.0 — Online Photographic Thinking panel discussion back in October.
Kelly exhibited photographs from her new series Catharsis. Angela was one of my professors at RIT and it was great to see her again. Tomorrow I will share a post about her lecture Catharsis: Images of Post Conflict Belfast 2010-11 which I attended last night after viewing the exhibition. She was great, which came to no surprise.
Szucs exhibited prints from her Sketch 4 I.D. series and her project Breathing in Place which included prints (Lake Superior #1, 2, 3, Lake Ontario #2) and a video (Lake Ontario, Tina). I really enjoyed the video.
Bass exhibited a few projects, and somehow I only caught one of the wall labels! Sorry! The gelatin silver prints with embroidery thread hung with platinum holders and Plexiglass is her series Contemplating My Internal Organs. This is the work by the bookshelf. Speaking of bookshelf, it held books of each of the artists which I thought was a nice addition to the exhibition. I uploaded a very short video clip of Megan Sullivan operating one of Bass’ sculptural pieces. Using a foot petal, the image strip moves creating a series of tones. It was lovely. I really wish I caught the wall label! Does anyone know the title?
The exhibition is on view through this Sunday (February 19) for any locals who have yet to see it. Go!
For more information on the exhibition you can read the Brockport Press Release and view the Brockport YouTube video. Also Kitty Hubbard, the curator of the exhibition, set up a Facebook group to encourage a dialogue amongst artists and audience – head over and join the conversation!
