Exhibit at Garrison Art Center blurs boundaries
Karlyn Benson, director and curator of the Matteawan Gallery in Beacon, has selected six photographers whose work pushes beyond traditional photography for an exhibit at the Garrison Art Center starting Saturday, May 21.
The exhibit, Chemistry: Explorations in Abstract Photography, includes the work of Ellen Carey, Jill Enfield, Anne Arden McDonald, Amanda Means, Wendy Small and S. Gayle Stevens. The subject matter of the works is the process itself, which compels a viewer to question what makes a photograph a photograph. Is it a drawing, is it a painting, is it a photograph? Some of the work blurs that line to the point of near non-existence.
An opening reception is scheduled for May 21 from 5 to 8 p.m.; the show runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday through June 19. The Garrison Art Center is located at 23 Garrison Landing in Garrison. For more information, visit garrisonartcenter.org or call 845-424-3960.
