Opening Reception for Martin Stupich, Remnants of the First World
Friday, February 8, 2013, 5:00-7:00 pm
Artist Talk on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

“We build and shape our landscapes and terrains—gardens, bridges, truck stops, quarries, canals and dams—to suit both our physical and emotional desires. Yet this is not without consequences. This exhibition presents a selection of potent images from a larger body of work that Martin Stupich has explored and recorded since the 1970s. These images of some of our most ambitious, often permanent structures are breathtaking to behold yet also pose questions about what it is we are leaving behind as the “remnants” of our culture and time. As the photographer has remarked “These remnants of the first world are the evidence, the trail of clues we leave as we plow ahead….” Stupich clearly works within a historical sphere which harks back to the nineteenth-century and includes some of the great camera artists of that era such as Timothy O’Sullivan, Carleton Watkins and Darius Kinsey.”

The exhibition is located in the Van Daren Coke Gallery and will be on display February 19 – May 25, 2013.
Martin Stupich will give an artist talk at the museum on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm.

January 25th, Daytona Beach, FL: Opening Reception for Janelle Lynch’s “Los Jardines de México”

Janelle Lynch, Los Jardines de México
Opening Reception: Friday, January 25, 2013

Los Jardines de México presents three related bodies of work, La Fosa Común, Akna and El Jardín de Juegos by Janelle Lynch. Images of overlooked or obscure urban and rural landscapes, they explore aspects of the life cycle—loss, death, regeneration—while simultaneously celebrating life and its intricate beauty.

La Fosa Común is a series of photographs made with an 8×10 camera in Mexico City’s common grave. The site is a burial place for the indigent and unidentified. Also made with an 8×10 camera, Akna is a series of portraits of tree stumps in a nature reserve that explores the theme of rebirth. “Akna,” in Mayan, means “mother” and is the goddess of birth and fertility. Made with a 4×5 camera, El Jardín de Juegos depicts the relics of a children’s recreation area, void of people and eclipsed by nature and neglect.”

The exhibition will be on view January 25 – April 14, 2013.
