Exhibit: ‘Images from the Hood and Across the Tracks’ at gallery406

09:00 am to 05:00 pm
gallery406 (116 W. 6th St, Ste. 110)
http://www.spectrumstudioinc.com/gallery406.htm

Detroit might consider Georgia’s Old Car City to be a rusting graveyard filled with its finest designs. But the camera’s eye is able to capture an artist’s palette of line, form, color and texture as those 4,000 vehicles are silently transformed by the passage of time and the changing of the seasons. Join Bloomington photographers Kendall Reeves and James and Sue Haverstock in an exhibition of images from Old Car City that detail and explore the beauty resulting from the intersection of industry’s design and nature’s demands. Included in the show are photos from the Southeastern Railway Museum, a playground of rail cars and engines from the days when rail travel unified and serviced all of America. These high dynamic range images highlight in depth the forms and colors that transformed the utilitarian into the captivating. Images from the Hood and Across the Tracks is an exhibition that promises to capture form, color and texture in ways that will excite and inspire. Using a variety of modern camera techniques, these three photographers have produced images that coax beauty from age and decay, and exceptional art from the ordinary.

Exhibit runs until July 26. Gallery is open Monday – Friday, 9 am – 5 pm, and by appointment on Saturday.

“Walk the Walk, Art Lives”: Paper Art Quilts by Mary Hambly
The art of Mary Hambly, founding member of the committee that started Gallery Walk, is honored with this exhibit of her work. The Paper Art Quilt is a joining of contemporary art and traditional craft, a blending of individual elements in such a way that the joining allows for a richer and more meaningful whole. In the creative process stenciled, marbled, printed, and over dyed papers are cut, pieced, and then stitched using a zig zag sewing machine. The resulting “quilt blocks” are then laid out in a composition, sometimes born out of the repeating pattern concept of traditional quilting, sometimes not. The “quilt” is then completed with a border, also of paper, and the result is a one of a kind image.
Exhibit runs until Thursday, July 25.

“Doing the Dance”: Woodcut prints by Dale Enochs
Sets of four woodcuts that when displayed together make a single composition or tetraptych. One tetraptych, Tantric Sideshow is based on a visit to Bhutan and is a reference to the elements Earth, Air, Fire and Water. A second tetraptych 21st Century Dance Cards is inspired by the Gulf Coast oil spill and also by environmental and war issues.
Exhibit runs until Thursday, July 25.

Monday-Saturday 10 am-5:30, closed Sunday
