Fine Art Photography: Transcending Language
The David Barnett Gallery presents â€śFine Art Photography: Transcending Languageâ€ť. The opening reception will be held on Gallery Night & Day, Friday, October 21, 2016 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm and Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. The gallery is located at 1024 E.

Experiencing visual art directly one on one often times goes beyond the written word. This exhibition of fine art photographic images communicates visually with the viewer in ways that cannot be appreciated solely in writing. Through heightened visual experience one gets joy and a deeper understanding of the artistsâ€™ thoughts and vision. Visual storytelling, the old saying â€śA picture is worth a thousand wordsâ€ť, holds true here. Artists include, David Barnett, Tom Ferderbar, Phil Krejcarek, Francesco Spicuzza, Joan Dvorsky, Barbara Slane, Murray Weiss, Jacob Obletz, Jessie Spiess, Robert Sheer, George Zimbel, James Auer, Terry Warpinski, L.C. Kopczyk, Leslie Borns, Edward Sheriff Curtis and Diana Sowder.
Also featured will be a c.1900 photograph with hand painting embellishment of a Portrait of Abraham Lincoln, a hybrid form of portraiture-part photomechanical and part handwork. This exhibition will run through January 14, 2017.
