Fort Worth International Center
Fort Worth, TX,
USA United States of America
The Fort Worth International Center will present an
exhibition combining photography and printmaking by three local artists whose
art work is influenced by their international experience from May 13 - July
14, 2000. Showcasing three unique perspectives, OTHER VIEWS will serve as an
introduction to the work of Christopher Blay, Simeen Muneer Ishaque, and
Monte Martin. OTHER VIEWS is organized by Rachel Bounds, volunteer curator for the
International Center, with the cooperation of the City of Fort Worth and
other organizations through their support of the International Center.
Monte Martin, while new to our area, has exhibited his world travel
orientated photography throughout the Midwest. The view and presentation is
conceptual and intriguing. Martin is the manager of the Arlington Art Museum.
Born in Liberia, Christopher Blay moved to the United States in 1986.
Through the lens of a Diane camera, Blay explores the beauty of the city in
its simplest forms. His photographs have been exhibited locally.
Born in Pakistan, Simeen Muneer Ishaque has successfully pursued
education and exhibitions throughout the southwest. Her rich layered images
expressed in printmaking combine ancient and contemporary concerns.
OTHER VIEWS consists of three separate cohesive bodies of work.
Martin's approximately 30 black and white photographic works will be featured
in the World Affairs Gallery. Blay's 15 black and white images of Fort Worth
will be seen in the Connections Gallery. Ishaque's work will be coming
directly from her MFA Thesis exhibition at TCU to the Cities and Commerce
