The McIninch Art Gallery presents The Intersection of Painting and Photography from January 24 through February 23. There will be an opening reception and artist talk on Thursday, January 24, from 5-7 p.m. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
The McIninch Art Gallery’s opening spring exhibition examines the bridge between painting and photography through a collection of distinguished artists’ work inspired by the metaphysical visual language of Abstract Expressionism. The grandeur and metaphor of Abstract Expressionist painting encouraged photographers to reinvestigate the potential for straight and manipulated procedures for creating abstract imagery. Seeking to evoke instead of describe, each selected artist explores and pushes the boundaries of both composition, subject and the medium used. The artists represented featured groundbreaking expressionist photographers such as Aaron Siskind, Minor White, and Harry Callahan, juxtaposed with painters such as Emily Mason, György Kepes, Jules Olitski and other talented contemporary painters. Filled with rich textures, abstract forms, nuanced landscapes and depictions of human life and nature. these works showcase the confluence of painting and photography in modern art.
