“Daily Differences” by Colleen Henderson
“Street Portraits” by Karen Keating

September 3 – October 13, 2013

Reception:

Sunday, September 8, 2-4pm

Fine art photographers, Colleen Henderson and Karen Keating will present new work in their two-person exhibit at Multiple Exposures Gallery.

Skeleton Tree by Coleen HendersonColleen’s images are from an ongoing body of work from her “shot of the day” series started in 2008 after attending a contemplative photo class.  The challenges of seeing and being present changed the nature of her shooting and image capture. In addition to framed photographs, Colleen will be exhibiting a limited edition of hand bound artist books.

 

 

 

 

 

Palermo Chair by Karen KeatingKaren has long used the street as her stage for observing people, often in other countries.  Previous portfolios are from Honduras, Bulgaria, Africa, and most intensely Cuba.  A trip to Sicily during Easter week 2012 and the start of a new project in Key West are the locations for her continuing attraction to street portraits and the observation of daily life.  Watching and waiting for the visual gift is both her challenge and reward.  Her “Cuba: Watching and Waiting” book will be available.

 

Gallery Hours:

Daily 10am – 6pm; Thursdays, 11am-9pm
