In the Art Gallery
Have you been by yet to witness the stunning Art on View in our Art Gallery? We are always so fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful works of art, and this current show is no exception. Photography by David Hurwitt is now on display in our Art Gallery, which is on the lower level of the Library. Here are some photographs from the Artist's Reception that was held last Friday.
According to David, he began taking photography seriously in the 1970s when his children were young. He went on to explain how that changed:
"Then about 2003, two important events coincided to change my photographic perspective. First came the digital revolution: affordable...SLR digital cameras whose photos rivaled – and eventually surpassed – the quality of film, and with much more creative latitude. Then our daughter Sarah and her husband moved to New Delhi to teach school, and invited us to visit. What we found in India was a photographer’s paradise: beautiful, colorful, character-filled faces in fascinating settings, who loved having their pictures taken. (I always ask permission; it may be my photograph, but it's their image.)"
The images are fantastic. There's "The Fabric Market" and even a "Happy Camel" among the brilliantly colorful collection. The Artist's Reception was also fantastic. Present, was "the group that went," (pictured at left) friends of the artist, who accompanied him to India on a recent trip, where and when many of the photographs were taken.
The show will be on exhibit at the Library through November 30th. There's still time to catch this show. Please stop by.
