Unbound at the Candela Gallery

Opening June 1st, the Candela Gallery in Richmond, VA will present it’s inagural exhibition featuring work from over 50 contemporary photographers. Spearheaded by in amazing Gordon Stettinius,  the exhibition will continue through July 28th with a UnBound Gala event complete with beer & wine, southern finger food, great music, door prizes and much more. Event tickets will be sold in advance and at the door; and will generate the funds toward purchase and
collection of original photographic work while also actively pursuing
opportunities to donate said work to notable art institutions.

MoCP Collection Artist Update

Alec Soth, Patrick, Palm Sunday, Baton Rouge, LA, 2002

Alec Soth speaks with the Art:21 blog regarding his relationships with his portrait subjects. In the “Sleeping by the Mississippi” series, to which the author refers, Soth captures the disparate scenes and people he discovers during meandering journeys along the Mississippi River. Beginning his voyages in the frozen winters of Minneapolis and ending in the sultry heat of New Orleans, Soth’s pictures trace a cultural gradation along the largest and most storied river in the United States. View Soth in the MoCP Collection.

Jennifer Greenburg has been busy this week! Over the weekend, Greenburg was quoted and appeared in a New York Times article for her involvement in the exhibition Aldermen Project: 50 Aldermen/50 Artists at Johalla Projects in Chicago. (This exhibition also features collection artists Jon Gitelson and Melissa Ann Pinney.) Greenburg and her recent photo publication, The Rockabillies, were also the focus of today’s Eight Forty-Eight broadcast on Chicago Public Radio.
