Windowed Wall Selected for “Glimpses in Time” International Exhibit

By | Exhibition, Recognition | No Comments

Windowed Wall, one of my newest night photographs, was juried into this year’s “Glimpses in Time” exhibit at the Joyce Gordon Gallery. The exhibit opens Friday and runs through July 30. As always, it features dozens of photographs from artists across the US and around the world, so there will be plenty of fantastic photography to see (and, ahem, collect).

I hope to see you at the free reception, which will be this Friday, July 2, 6–9 p.m. Refreshments will be served. The show runs through July.

My work has been juried into all four annual “Glimpses in Time” exhibits. The juror this time around was Linda Connor, professor of photography at the San Francisco Art Institute, where she’s taught since 1969.

“Glimpses in Time” is always a tribute to a late photographer, and this year we’re honoring Imogen Cunningham. She was a peer of Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange, and others, and her influence on the art form is still felt today.

The Joyce Gordon Gallery is at 406 14th St. (at Broadway) in Downtown Oakland, steps from the 12th St. BART station. You can catch the exhibit Thursdays and Fridays, 9 a.m.–6 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays, 1–4 p.m.

Wall and Hedge was selected for “Glimpses in Time,” an annual juried photography exhibition, this year in honor of Manuel Alvarez Bravo, at the Joyce Gordon Gallery in Oakland. I’m very pleased to have been included in the show for the third year in a row. Almost 154 entries were submitted from across the US and five foreign countries.

A public reception will be held Friday, July 3, 2009, 5:30 p.m.–9:30 p.m., coinciding with Oakland Art Murmur. The Joyce Gordon Gallery is at 406 14th St., Oakland, just steps from the 12th St. BART station. The show runs through this month.

The juror was Rene de Guzman, senior art curator at the Oakland Museum of California.

Manuel Alvarez Bravo was a Mexican photographer best known for his sometimes dream-like, sometimes political, surrealistic work. I encourage you to learn more about his contributions to the arts. And come see the show!

Gordon Parks wore many hats—photographer, activist, musician, poet, novelist, film director, and more. If you’re not already familiar with him, I encourage you to learn more about his contributions to the arts and the civil rights movement.
