Photography exhibit “Microcosm” that channels the viewer to little versions of bigger worlds, would be open to public from 10th April to 3rd May, at hob’art gallery in Monroe Center of the Arts. The artists, Starr Tucker-Ortega and Tom Egan, utilize the photographic medium to offer mystical and ethereal imagery. A meeting session with the exhibitors will take place on 11th April, Saturday, from 6 pm to 8 pm. On 19th April, Sunday, the artists would talk about their snapshots and would welcome questions from others.
The photographs of Tom Egan are experiments in unreal landscapes created via symmetrical imagery. They have a dreamlike otherworldly character even though they are, at the very same time, local and familiar. His brand new work talks about re-interpreting the urban place where he lives.
Starr Tucker-Ortega has utilized both traditional as well as non-traditional photography mediums like photograms and sunprints to make abstract photographs. Her brand new digital photographs deals with light, color and tranquility. In this brand new work, she brings up a feeling of serenity and impermanence where the viewer could be transported to yet another time, place or universe.
There will be a slide show named “Photography Show & Tell” and there will also be talk about photographs hosted by Don Sichler. They are all open to the public on 15th April, Wednesday, at the hob’art gallery. This is a great event to show and discuss about your photography.
