Opening Reception for Figurative Exhibition at Alex Ferrone Photography Gallery
August 12, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - August 13, 2017 @ 3:00 pm
Working with shadows, reflections and light, three award-winning fine art photographers, Linda K. Alpern, Patricia Beary and Larry Davis, present selected works on the human figure at Alex Ferrone Gallery on the North Fork. The Figurative Exhibit opens with a public reception on Saturday, August 5 from 6-8pm where guests can mingle with the artists while enjoying Prosecco with light bites. Figurative runs from August 5 through August 27, 2017 at the Cutchogue Gallery.
With an artistic concentration on photographing people, Linda K. Alpern has produced two portrait series of writers, artists and friends using reflective Mylar and water pools as her backdrops and studio setting, respectively. These settings have allowed Ms. Alpern to bring out more personalities and abstracted features of her subjects as produced from various angles of these unusual materials.
Patricia Beary uses motion to photographically obscure the edges of figures where the delicacy of the subject’s frame is defined by light and shadow rather than a crisp, clear outline. The monotone hue of her prints is a deliberate choice encouraging the viewer to transcend color detail and instead, concentrate on the fluidity of the human form.
Larry Davis engages people photographically from a distance and abstracts their forms within architectural settings while exploring aspects of isolation, loneliness, and sometimes humor. Printing his images to small 3-inch squares pulls the viewer in to investigate these emotions a bit closer.
“Figurative” Gallery Talk: Join the artists on Sunday, August 13 from 1:00-3:00 PM for a free luncheon Gallery Talk to hear the discussion about their works in the exhibit. Reservations are required for the Talk. Sponsored by Abatelli Realty of Cutchogue.
