The Deliberate Portrait--a Retrospective
I'm stoked to kick off the spring/summer gallery season on May 13th with a new and extensive retrospective entitled The Deliberate Portrait. This show includes studio portraits taken between 2001 and 2011, many never before seen (not even by some of the subjects!). Over 75 prints will be displayed, many newly struck for the exhibition, will be on display throughout the summer. As always, we'll be open on the second friday of the month for Tremont Artwalk, other hours by appointment. The exhibition was inspired by and includes images from the so-called Literary Sets, a series of portrait sessions shot at the Literary Cafe in Tremont throughout the double-oughts, and expanded with a continuing series of less than formal portraits shot in the studio. The approach is deliberate from my point of view, presenting subjects in an immediate and sometimes disarmed manner.
The show will be open on Artwalk Fridays 6-10pm, May 13, June 10, July 8, and August 12, 2011, and by appointment.
