Paris Contrasts – Stan Bowman

In 1986, Stan spent 6 months in Paris. “Paris is a marvelous old classic city, but at the same time it’s a modern metropolis. There was a rich mixture of classical architecture with contemporary sights, signs and posters. I created a series of images that reflected these two contrasting views of the city, using an 8×10 wood field camera. “

Maiden America-Tatiana Malkin

Tatiana Malkin and Jesse Grossman present “Maiden America” and “Layers,” respectively. In “Maiden America” Malkin juxtaposes the everyday imagery of a young woman’s world in the age of Instagram, Tumblr, and social media with the yearning for and nostalgia of an unlived and simple past. Grossman’s “Layers” focuses on the art of gold fuming glass, a technique in which pure gold is trapped within glass, revealing brilliant and subtle hues of green, orange, pink, and red. Both artists are present at the opening!
