Robert Bourdeau is widely recognized and has exhibited internationally at Le Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Smithsonian Institution in the District of Columbia, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, The Museum of fine Arts in Boston, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Vancouver Art Gallery among other notable institutions.

Stephen Bulger Gallery now presents the work of Bourdeau in survey; The Station Point will draw from Bourdeau's oeuvre from the past 40 years. Bourdeau takes interest in expansive landscape, forgotten industrial elements fading apart or being swallowed up by nature, and architectural gems nestled into the landscape. Haunting and enticing frames are geometrically structured yet rhythmic. The work is nostalgic and we long to wander into the spaces captured.

Monograph co-published by Stephen Bulger Gallery and Mageneta Foundation to release the evening of the exhibition.

The aura of Susan Paulsen work is painterly. The warm surrounding quality of light, the true tones of rich color, the sentimentality of the scenes make the work alluring. Inviting portraits, voluminous nudes, and enchanting still lives hang with moments of inner reflection and potential conflict. Some paired images perk tension, still lives are to be enjoyed lusciously and the thin thread of vanitas enters in woks with small creatures captured under bell globes- these add just the right balance to enhance the wholistic sense of the series. Overall these are simple moments, daily visions. Elevated above routine we stop for a moment to linger at each quiet moment in Paulsen's exposition titled Sara Rhymes with Clara.

Public Radio interview with Joseph Bellows
The man who saved a piece of photographic history


When The Wave by Czech photographer Frantisek Drtikol was offered to Bellows his interest peaked. After continued conversation with the seller and research on the work he learned the piece he had been offered was stolen.

The first part of this story was covered by AIPAD on March 30.

Listen to KPBS's interview with Bellows for the second part of this exciting story on how one of AIPAD's own members saved a piece of photographic history.

Review: Charles Moore at Kasher Gallery

The Civil Rights and Beyond
Exhibition on view through May 7, 2011

The Kasher Gallery's presentation of nearly 60 prints, mostly vintage, by photographer Charles Moore is the most extensive and broad-reaching exhibition of the photographer's work to date. The images in The Civil Rights and Beyond are iconic. As a photographer for Life Magazine these moments were burned into our minds by the popular media of the day.

We need not even step into time; we are taken back to moments not long past or easily forgotten: protesters marching in pride or morning, activists resisting the police's brutal efforts by hose or canine to deter, control or quiet the coming change. These prints encapsulate moments that cry out with the voice of the people. Every bit as powerful today as the day they were made these works stur our inner being. The case us to fear, to hope, to remember that the struggle for equality and justice was won with grace, pride, and resistance, but not ease. Change came not by request but by demand- repeated, steady and on the part of the protesters, peaceful demand.

Feel the power of history at the brink of change.
