Stephen Bulger Gallery Celebrates its 20th Anniversary

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 24, 2015

A Group Exhibition Celebrating 20 Years

 

Exhibition Dates: March 24 – April 25, 2015

Stephen Bulger Gallery celebrates 20 years with an anniversary exhibition.  Since the gallery opened it has represented numerous international photographers; mounted 130 solo and 40 group shows; published books and hosted book launches; held screenings and other special events; and participated in art fairs in North American and Europe.  Stephen Bulger Gallery’s anniversary exhibition promises a look back at gallery achievements by featuring an image by each artist who has ever exhibited in a solo show.

 

Director, Stephen Bulger first engaged in photography as a hobby.   He studied at the Ryerson University’s School of Image Arts, became interested in the history of the media, and began organizing exhibitions.  Bulger was founding director of the Ryerson Gallery where he served on the exhibition review committee and managed exhibitions.   He went onto open his own gallery in 1995.

 

Bulger has notable affiliations and accomplishments outside his gallery walls, and has always remained a steward for the media.  Bulger has served as President of the Board for the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD); is a member of the Canadian Cultural Property Review Board; and co-founder of CONTACT, a photo festival held in Toronto.

 

Congratulations to Stephen Bulger Gallery on this milestone and wishing many more prosperous years.

LA Times Critic's Choices: Mariah Robertson at M+B Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Mariah Robertson:  Photography Lovers' Peninsula

 

through April 8, 2015 

  

Current M+B exhibition with Mariah Robertson has received critical attention from the LA Times; in a Critic's Pick Leah Ollman calls Robertson "one of photography's exciting new essentialists, [for] she pares down the medium to a few of its most basic ingredients: light, chemicals and a light-sensitive surface" (Ollman, LA Times).  One look at the work and we realize it indeed challenges traditional photographic conception, and as Ollman says of Robertson's work: "Nevermind a lens.  Nevermind a subject plucked from the visible world. Hers is an untamed art . . . jolts of rapturous beauty"  (LA Times).  

 

On a greater level the work challenges the relevance of closed systems.  It is playful and splashy, frayed and fresh.  No matter how unlike photography it seems, it remains rooted to the media; it still requires all the elemental components.

Lisa Sette Gallery Celebrates 30 Years

Posted By Administration, Thursday, March 19, 2015

30 Year Anniversary Exhibition

through March 28, 2015 

 

Lisa Sette Gallery celebrates its 30th anniversary in a new location: the Beadle building of midtown Phoenix.  Sette specializes in an aesthetic rather than a media, though the gallery has deep roots in photography and has been a member of AIPAD for years.  From the new and expanded location Lisa Sette Gallery has mounted an anniversary exhibition that underlines its own aesthetic.  Lisa Sette Gallery uses this exhibition to recap promises and make projections.  Above all Sette has been dedicated to, as she says, a "sense of self—a considered reaction to the circumstances of time, beauty, and geographical place. Rather than distancing itself from what it means to live in a desert city, the Sette aesthetic embraces this idiosyncratic existence; nearing the edge of the hemisphere, simultaneously exhilarating and precarious, and fertile ground for contemporary artwork."

Zócalo Review: Mark Klett at Etherton Gallery

Posted By Administration, Friday, March 13, 2015

Mark Klett : Then + Now 

 

On view through March 21 

 

 

Photographer Mark Klett is a modern day enigma. Known world-wide for his stunning large-scale black and white images that trace and invoke past landscape photograph pioneers, he also brings a modern sensibility to his work that is infused with a wide range of emotions. Rarely are artists so agile at capturing both the majesty of their environments along with the complex socio-economic impact of modern man on the same spaces. In Klett’s new show at the Etherton Gallery entitled Then + Now, the photographer again demonstrates both his technical artistry and his keen powers of observation.

 

This body of work was recently vetted in a New York Times opinion page . . . where the retracing of the dangerous journey from 1870 and again today in an active bombing range that borders Mexico, is recognized as no small feat. While it was impossible to know if the route documented by Klett was exactly the same one taken in the 1870s, the fact that the wilderness still exists and continues to beguile, is the point.

 

Also on display as part of the show is a series of intimate images entitled Time Studies that track celestial movements in a single image. These are both works of art and scientific observations that only Klett could merge and make fascinating.  - excerpts of a review by Herb Stratford, Zócalo
