“SHADES OF GRAY ART EXHIBITION RETURNS”
Dates: March 4 - 31, 2017
Dixon: We live in a full color world. Whether TV, books, newspapers, computers or even our smart phones, color is everywhere. But before color images, black and white reigned for years. So let’s get back to black & white!
The Next Picture Show is pleased to present the “Shades of Gray Black &White Photography Art Exhibition” an exhibition of art that will highlight local and regional photographers still exploring and producing work in black and white.
More than 60 original works of art, by 22 artists, have been accepted representing both film & digital photography. Shown (jpegs attached) are three entries in the exhibition. Artist Gary Pearson (“Backroads North Carolina”) of Leaf River; Joseph Fenwick (“Forlorn”) from Amboy; and Jon Wildman (“Nocturnal Conduit”) of Dixon.
In conjunction with Shades of Gray, TNPS will also showcase a special exhibition of the WWII Green River Ordnance Plant. The vintage official government photographs will be on display showing construction of buildings, the fire crew, assembly line workers and more. A photo (jpeg) of the cafeteria at the Green River Ordnance Plant is included.
Both exhibits will kick off with a reception and awards presentation on Saturday March 11 from 6:00pm-8:00 pm featuring music by Al & Jeannie Brown and a pointillism art demonstration by local award winning artist Kate Askegaard. Sauk Valley Community College Associate Art Professor Glenn Bodish will serve as awards judge.
The exhibition is sponsored by Hicks Insurance Agency, 815-288-1523. www.hicksinsurance.biz. Our thanks to Rick Munson, as well, for providing the Ordnance Plant photographs.
