"Reverse: Photographs by Emerging Artists and Their Mentors"
2003-07-12 until 2003-07-25
Santa Fe Art Institute
Sante Fe, NM,
USA United States of America
Reverse, an exhibition of work by five emerging photographers and their mentors is on exhibit in the Santa Fe Art Institute galleries from July 12 through July 25, 2003. This exhibition is curated by the Santa Fe Art Institute and organized in conjunction with PhotoArts Santa Fe. In a twist on the tradition of established artists recognizing their influences, the Santa Fe Art Institute has instead selected five emerging artists to exhibit in Reverse. In turn, these emerging artists have chosen New Mexico photographers who have directly influenced their photographic work or artistic process.
Adrain Chesser will exhibit with Debbie Fleming Caffery, Julie Graber with Steve Northup, Jennifer Schlesinger with Janet Russek, Michael Webb with David Scheinbaum, and Wendy Young with Gay Block. Five images by each photographer will be on exhibit, and a wide range of photographic work will be represented—from documentary to portraiture to landscape to abstract.
PhotoArts Santa Fe is a 10-day summer festival that celebrates and showcases the photographic arts. In addition to the Santa Fe Art Institute, Santa Fe and Albuquerque galleries, museums, photographic organizations, educational institutions, bookstores, and businesses are collaborating to create this exciting biennial event.
Reverse is part of the Uncommon Ground: Manmade series. The exhibition is open to the public Monday through Friday, from 9 to 5, and by calling in advance for an appointment on the weekend. Admission is free. For more information on the Uncommon Ground: Manmade series, please visit SFAI’s website at www.sfai.org or call 505-424-5050.
