Tivoli Artists Gallery presents The Photography Show: An Homage to Masters of Art
March 3, 2017, Tivoli NY - The Tivoli Artists Gallery presents its annual photography exhibit, this time entitled The Photography Show, An Homage to Masters of Art. The show will feature members’ work as inspired by some of the greats in art and photography. Each photograph will have reference and inspiration to an original source material, be it a renowned fine-artist or celebrated photographer. This exhibit runs April 7 - April 30, with an opening reception Saturday April 8 @ 6pm - 9pm. Entry is free and the opening reception will include light snacks and drinks – with an opportunity to meet the TAG members and members of its board of directors.
The show, curated by TAG members and photographers Gilbert Rios and Susan Fowler-Gallagher, will feature a series of works from the gallery’s dedicated photographers. “I like the idea of showing related work because it creates a unique narrative. How do we get inspired, and what kind of stories do these pieces all tell based on the artists behind the camera?” he reflects
Each member will showcase a series of photos that has been motivated by, or created as an homage to, a well-known artist or photographer of our time. Some of the masters whose work served as a tribute include contemporary British photographer Martin Parr, American celebrated artists Edward Hopper and Georgia O’Keefe, and the painter/photographer Ellsworth Kelly, known for his minimalism and hard-edge approach to art. Photography books by these artists will also be available, so that visitors can view the source of inspiration.
“My inspiration is Ellsworth Kelly” states Rios. “The minimalist nature of his work and his allegiance to form and shadow really resonates with me. Kelly was able to appreciate his subject matter in a direct and unfiltered way, as if the identity of his subject matter was unimportant. You’ll see a lot of stark black and white images in my presentation, which I absolutely love.” Other TAG photographers (and their tribute artists) to date include: Alan Reich (Edward Hopper), China Jorrin (Martin Parr), Dana Matthews (Sally Mann) and Juliet Harrison (Georgia O'Keeffe).
The Photography Show: An Homage to Masters of Art @ Tivoli Artists Gallery, 60 Broadway, Tivoli, free.
April 7- 30 2017; opening reception April 8.
