Opening Reception: Richard Tuschman, Hopper Meditations
Friday, June 6, 2014, 5:00-7:00 pm

“[Edward] Hopper was a master at using light to expressively illuminate his subject. I also like the fact that almost all of his human subjects are contemplative. There is, for the most part, no action. This sense of quietude contributes to the open-ended quality of the narratives, and leaves room for significant emotional depth. This seems a lot like real life, and what I would like to carry over in my work.” — Richard Tuschman

The exhibition will be on view June 6 – July 19, 2014.

This opening reception is in conjunction with photo-eye’s new gallery space grand opening.  The new photo-eye Gallery is located at:

Opening Reception: Le Rêve with Susan kae Grant, Kamil Vojnar, Krzysztof Wladyka
Friday, November 15, 2013, 5:00-
7:00  pm

“This exhibition at VERVE is a collection of photographs that dispels the belief that photography offers an accurate rendering of persons, places, things and events–Realism. The images by these three fine art photographers are created, constructed and choreographed by the artist to, at first blush, appear as accurate and objective renderings of what they portray. They summon the viewer to first comprehend them as an accurate rendition, only to then provoke the viewer to see them in a completely different light. Unmistakably aesthetic, this imagery of persons, places, things and events is to be seen and understood as metaphors–to tell a different story or stories, or perhaps a story of a dream–Surrealism…. This exhibition is therefore a theater, an itinerary of animated pictorial elaborations—images of the dream. In each instance, however, the image content is always inviting and the compositions have patterns, structure and narrative. The works are pleasing to the eye.”

Opening Reception: Wednesday, December 4, 2013, 5:00-7:30 pm

Alejandra Regalado‘s project, In Reference To is a photographic project about Mexican female immigrants across the U.S. In Reference To explores issues of cultural identity, femininity and the relationship between these themes and personal objects. When completed in 2014, In Reference To will be a five-part series: New York, Idaho & Oregon, Texas, Illinois and California. Each will feature 100 Mexican women who immigrated to the United States at different points in their lives, alongside the 100 personal objects each woman chose to represent their most personal connection to Mexico and the lives they left behind when they immigrated to the U.S.”  To learn more about this project read The Blue Review’s article.

The exhibition will be on view October 27, 2013 – February 7, 2014.

October 27th, Dayton, OH: Opening Reception & Gallery Talk for “The Fixed Shadow: A Juried Photography Exhibition of Camera-less Images”

Wright State University | Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries
The Fixed Shadow: A Juried Photography Exhibition of Camera-less Images

Opening Reception & Gallery Talk with Carol Panaro-Smith & James Hajicek
Sunday, October 27, 2013, 3:00-5:30 pm

Free and open to the public.

“From October 27 – December 8, 2013 the Robert and Elaine Stein Galleries will present selected works by artists from across the United States. The works use camera-less photographic processes. Among the processes used are photograms, scanograms, lumen prints, chemigrams, and photogenic drawings: all of which describe methods where light is used to capture an image directly onto a surface.

Exhibition jurors and featured artists Carol Panaro-Smith and James Hajicek have been working with camera-less photographic processes throughout their careers. Their collaborative photogenic drawings of organic materials beautifully engage themes of serendipity and impermanence.

On Sunday October 27, 2013 jurors Carol Panaro-Smith and James Hajicek will be presenting a gallery talk from 3:00-4:00 in the Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries. An opening reception will follow from 4:00 P.M. until 5:30 P.M.”

Artist Talk, Book Signing & Opening Reception: Friday, October, 18, 2013, 6:00-8:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

“In 2005, I set out to photograph my home state of South Dakota, a sparsely populated frontier state on the Great Plains with more buffalo, pronghorn, coyotes, mule deer, ring-necked pheasants, and prairie dogs than people. It’s a landscape dominated by space and silence and solitude, by brutal wind and extreme weather. I was trying to capture a more intimate and personal view of the West. I was trying to capture what all that space feels like to someone who grew up there. A year into the project, however, everything changed. One of my brothers died unexpectedly. For months, one of the few things that eased my unsettled heart was the landscape of South Dakota. It seemed all I could do was drive through the badlands and prairies and photograph. I began to wonder: Does loss have its own geography?” – Rebecca Norris Webb

“Since the discovery of her negatives in a Chicago storage locker in 2007, Vivian Maier (1926-2009) has garnered international attention for her poignant street photography, almost none of which she printed during her lifetime. Including street scenes from Chicago and New York in the 50s and 60s, as well as striking self-portraits, Vivian Maier: A Woman’s Lens will be the first showing of the mysterious photographer’s work in the Greater Boston area. Don’t miss this opportunity to view a rare talent whose rich, and little-known, life story is still unfolding.”

Vivian Maier’s Fractured Archive: A Woman’s Story
A slide presentation by Pamela Bannos
Wednesday, October 16, 2013 at 6:30 pm

After receiving privileged access to 20,000 Vivian Maier images, including her earliest known work, Paul Bannos–Distinguished Senior Lecturer, Department of Art Theory & Practice, Northwestern University–elucidates how Maier’s disjointed archive complicates our reading of her life and motivations. This presentation will explore a paradoxical life and its messy aftermath, and examine the emergence of Maeier’s lifelong passion through eyes other than her own.”
