THING 151 - This Land Is Your Land - Greenwich Arts Council

THIS LAND IS YOUR LANDAn Exhibition of Images of America taken by members ofTHE PHOTOGRAPHY CLUB OF LOWER FAIRFIELD COUNTYAPRIL 7 - MAY 7, 2011Opening Reception: Thursday, April 7, 6 to 8 pmCONVERSATION with the ARTISTS AT 6:45 PMModerated by Paul Master-Karnik, Executive DirectorOriginally founded as the Stamford Camera Club in 1945, The Photography Club of Lower Fairfield County adopted its current title in 1999. Membership includes both advanced amateurs and professional photographers, who provide an atmosphere of creative and technical growth for all participants.The exhibition, entitled THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND, in the Bendheim Gallery includes a selection of eighty works by approximately thirty photographers, and reflects a great diversity of technique and scale, ranging from stunning landscapes on through gripping portraits. The unifying concept for the show is each artist's unique experience of the contemporary American "landscape" - people, places, and things.Interpretation varies widely. An excellent example of landscape photography, for instance, is Renee Giffroy's "Grand Canyon Awe", in which the impact of the image resonates from the relatively close-up encounter with the brilliantly lit strata of the canyon walls.The urban environment is equally well represented with works such as Mike Harris' "Landmark in a Storm". It features New York's Chrysler Building in an atmospheric array of abstract color, with its characteristic lighting outlined in eerie silhouette. Powerful portraits figure prominently in the show with Lewis Fink's "The Boxer", for example, illustrating a characteristic American type.THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND runs from April 7 - May 7, 2011 with an Opening Reception scheduled for Thursday, April 7, from 6 - 8 pm, when the artists will be present to talk informally about their photographs, influences, and impact.Sponsorship support has been generously provided by Serendipity magazine.Gallery hours are: Mon-Fri, 10am-5pm; Sat-Sun, noon-5pm. Admission is free. The Greenwich Arts Council is located at 299 Greenwich Ave., second floor, in the Old Town Hall.For more information about exhibitions at the Bendheim Gallery, or other events and programs of the Greenwich Arts Council, call 203.862.6750
