Ellen Carey: Dings, Pulls, and Shadows

January 17 - July 27
Amon Carter Museum of American Art, 3501 Camp Bowie Boulevard
Fort Worth, TX United States

Since the 1990s, experimental photographer Alumna Ellen Carey has been making photographs that defy photographic conventions of depicting identifiable subjects. Instead, her works depict vibrant fields of color that are meditations on the very nature of photography as an image created by the action of light on a light-sensitive surface. The exhibition Ellen Carey: Dings, Pulls, and Shadows features seven key works that explore the artist’s interest in color, light, and the photographic process as the subject of her practice.

“Sweep” is a regional and national survey of more than 20 contemporary painters, presenting new or recent artwork by all of the painters currently represented by the Gallery, as well as an equal number of invited local/regional painters.  Running the gamut from magical realism to hard-edged abstraction, the paintings displayed in “Sweep” address the subjects of beauty, ethnicity, justice, history, spiritualism, landscape, story-telling, and formalism. Historically, art has both responded to and predicted greater societal trends. Our current dynamic time is bringing renewed attention and experimentation with past and current “schools” of painting, including those outside of the European painting traditions.  At this time, no particular style rules and the syncretism of styles and cultures often produces fascinating new hybrids in both subject and technique. This situation places us in an interesting and rewarding time to appreciate current painting practice.   We present the latest work of a group of experienced painters at a high point in their craft.  There is abstraction, minimalism, narrative, contemporary realism, social commentary, night landscapes, natural forces, diverse cultural symbolism, non-traditional materials, and more.

Lyrical Abstraction – Howard Harris

March 13 - April 3
Agora Gallery, 530 West 25th St.
Chelsea, NY United States
+ Google Map

Part photography and part sculpture, the remarkable work of American artist Howard Harris. is nearly impossible to classify. Harris has said that his aim is to "combine technology and aesthetics in a way that expands the viewer's experience of photographic art." His unique way of image-making begins with a digital photograph. It is abstracted in some way - perhaps the colors are enhanced subtly, or the entire composition is skewed more overtly. Often the photograph is multiplied and layered onto itself, separated by sheets of clear acrylic. The resulting piece has unexpected depth and movement - the eye dances. Harris has truly found a way to make photography surprising again. The images he chooses to bring to life in this singular way vary, greatly. His camera captures animals, architecture, landscapes, and portraiture. No matter what the subject matter, each image is depicted centrally, almost monumentally. Backgrounds and even shadows are stripped away. Harris was born in Denver, Colorado and today maintains his own home studio in Denver. He has exhibited extensively all around the United States.
