Join Cleary Gallery for the opening reception of "Show," which features the neo-burlesque world as seen by Henry Horenstein. The candid look at the underground cultural climate of burlesque is sensual, gritty, and alluring. Images on exhibition will feature shots of live performance and in-studio work.

In the series "Show" Horenstein returns to his roots- documentary photography. Evident from his work, approach, and the wide variety of subjects, Horenstein likes a good story. The strait shot, the documentary style has always appealed to him. Whenever possible Horenstein weaves in an bit of wit but manages to always show his subjects with dignity, grace, and honesty.

Horenstein has captured showgirls, the animal kingdom, country musicians, family and friends, but his favorite subjects harken back to his first career choice. Horenstein first thought to earn a PhD in HIstory, and takes particular enjoyment in capturing old places or fading cultures. Tis the duty of Historians to be sure the soon to vanish leaves a trace, a record. Horenstein's experience in and dedication to photography has indeed earned him the title of Historian, and this look at the forgotten world of Burlesque is in perfect alignment with the artist's philosophy.

Artist will attend reception for a book signing.
Original documentary will screen. Live entertainment provided by Dalla's Ruby Revue Burlesque.
