Etherton Gallery in Photograph Magazine

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, October 7, 2014

The story of Etherton Gallery Director, Terry Etherton in this Photograph Magazine Profile by Sarah Schmerler.

 

 

When first-time visitors walk up the stairs and into Terry Etherton’s second-floor gallery in downtown Tucson, they are never prepared for what they find — a vast, museum-quality space that seems anomalous with the 101-degree heat outside: shiny, hardwood floors that go on forever (the building was a former ballroom), 16-foot-high walls, modern wood benches, and cabinet-of-curiosity style wooden vitrines filled with ephemera and art objects, the better to complement the vintage and 20th-century photo works that have been Etherton’s specialty for three decades. “I design the shows myself, often a year in advance,” says the 63-year-old dealer from his office lined with 5,500 photo books. “I care about the first impression we make, the themes uniting the work. Part of the challenge for me here is getting people in the door — we don’t have any street presence, save for a small sign. We’re a destination spot, so people come up the stairs with a purpose, and I love that.”

Review: Thomas Barrow at Joseph Bellows Gallery

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, October 1, 2014

  

Thomas Barrow : The Fashion Show

 

Through November 1, 2014

 

The unique prints from Thomas Barrow’s Fashion series were executed between 1965 and 1970, but remain fresh.  They root in art history, marking a shift in the way we think about the nature of photography as an art form and a device.  These works, among Barrow’s other series, were a direct challenge to the existing photographic currents, and acted as counterpoint to the idea that photography is an unadulterated view of the world. 

 

The images in Fashion are layered; their composition and qualities are physical, almost tactile.  The frames visually pulse with energy that can be perceived as both seductive and dangerous.  The Fashion series was composed through camera-less photography, and includes the use of such diverse techniques as solarization, negative printing, superimposing, montage, and abstraction.  Appropriation from magazine and other popular media sources literally connect the work to the content Barrow was exploring, including notions of beauty, advertising, and consumerism.  The prints are inverted, and appear in negative rather than positive view.  This distorts our vision, and effectively turns the content on its head.  We experience an undoing of expectation.  The fact that they still read as industry or advertisement images makes us want to examine the constructions of desire and the visual “sales pitch” behind what is proposed to us as ideal.

Gallery Fifty One Celebrates 15 Years

Posted By Administration, Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Open in June of 2000, Gallery Fifty One now stands at the opening of its 15th art season.  The gallery, located at Zirkstraat 20, Belgium, is the only gallery dedicated to photography in Belgium.  Since opening it has remained dedicated to exposing work by emerging photographers alongside established photographers of the 20th and 21st centuries.  In more recent years the gallery has put photography into broader dialogue through exhibitions that pair the media with other works on paper.  This side-by-side comparison is intended to, as the gallery states, "emphasize the artistic gaze of photography."  In the past year the gallery opened a secondary exhibition space, Fifty One Too; this venue gives the gallery an additional platform from which to share its vision.  Congratulations Gallery Fifty One; wishing you another successful 15 years and more.  


Notable forthcoming exhibitions and events at the gallery include:

Michael Wolf
New series Hong Kong Flora & Trilogy and Shadows in Paris
December 5 - January 24, 2015

Vivian Maier
New Unpublished Images
December 5 - January 24, 2015

Saul Leiter
2015 exhibition dates not yet announced.

7th Edition of PHPA with Esther Woerdehoff Gallery

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, August 26, 2014
PHPA:  PHOTO D’HÔTEL, PHOTO D’AUTEUR 

Exhibition Dates:  September 3 - September 27

Private Vernissage at Esther Woerdehoff Gallery
Wednesday, September 2, 2014
3:00 - 11:00 pm

The PHPA is a collaboration between Esther Woerdehoff and  the Hôtels Paris Rive Gauche since 2007.  For seven years the Hotel Paris Rive Gauche has opened its doors once a year for a special event that invites selected artists to this mini-residency to create a work of art.  In the magical hours of a single day and night 12 artists are given the freedom to explore the space and open the secrets that hide in its rooms, hallways, and common areas.  Each artist is given the chance to construct a universe, reveal an emotion, or explore the beginnings of a fiction.  Artists are juried for inclusion, and their completed work is featured in the Esther Woerdehoff gallery.  



Contact the gallery for more information on this event or to request an invitation.
