“A former professor of photography at the University of Texas at Austin, native Australian Kate Breakey now lives and works in Tucson, Arizona. She first received international recognition for her large-scale, hand-colored photographs then adds layers of transparent oil paint and pencil.

Small Deaths, on view at the Michener Art Museum from March 14 – July 12, 2015 in the Fred Beans Gallery, features thirty extraordinary, hand-colored, oversized images of the birds, flowers, and insects that photographer Kate Breakey has memorialized through her work. The brilliance of her palette draws viewers to a close-up and unexpected confrontation with mortality. The images are life-size silver gelatin contact prints toned by hand with a golden wash. Breakey’s work has appeared in over 30 one-woman exhibitions and numerous group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. She received the Photographer of the Year Award in 2004 from the Houston Center for Photography.

October 11th, Rochester, MI: Artist Talk by Susan kae Grant and Opening Reception

Oakland University Art Gallery
Shadows of the Invisible
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 11, 6:00-9:00 pm
Artist Talk by Susan kae Grant at 5:00 pm

“The ability of photography to reveal what is invisible to the naked eye has a rich history dating back to the advent of the medium. Often typifying the conflation of science and art characterizing early photography, the pursuit of the invisible by means of light-sensitive emulsions remains a compelling source of fascination for contemporary image-makers and their audience. Within the realm of art, this preoccupation with the unseen manifests itself in remarkable fashions ranging from the poetics of evocation to the dread of the unknown.

Bringing together the intriguing work of seven international photo-based artists, Shadows of the Invisible casts light upon a spectrum of energy fields, emanations, perceptual imaginings, and subconscious imaging rendered tangible by photographic technologies.

The exhibition will be on view October 11 – November 23, 2014.  Featuring: Michael Flomen, David Maisel, Marie-Jeanne Musiol, Susan kae Grant, Shimpei Takeda, Amy Theiss Giese and Chrysanne Stathacos.”

October 7th, Austin: Lecture by Alejandro Cartagena

Harry Ransom Center
Lecture by Alejandro Cartagena
Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 7:00 pm

“For nearly ten years, Cartagena has explored the relationship between Mexico’s urban centers and the suburbs built around them, examining the ways in which explosive growth has altered the landscape and affected the lives of residents. In this artist’s talk, Cartagena discusses the development of projects including Suburbia Méxicana, Carpoolers, and his latest work, Systematic Landscapes. Through these projects, Cartagena has found a way to shed light on issues surrounding the recent homeownership boom in Mexico by presenting many of the actors involved, from the buyers to the public bureaucrats promoting government loans. Cartagena explains how Mexico’s social and political context has proven to be both a benefit and a threat to many of these new buyers, opening up opportunities and challenges.

The program is free and open to the public, but donations are welcome. Seating is first-come, first-served, and doors open at 6:30 p.m. Attendees may enter to win a copy of ’s Suburia Mexicana and a set of Ransom Center postcards. ”
