Two Great Exhibits In One At The Sordoni Art Gallery

 

March 21 – May 14

Landscapes Within Landscapes  Process

Sordoni Art Gallery, Wilkes University, Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania

 

Landscapes Within Landscapes
50 large prints survey the artist’s career; this exhibit illuminates how the perception of nature and the nature of perception are deeply intertwined. How we see the land changes how we see ourselves. The artist suggests we are land, not apart from nature but a part of Nature.

Process
25 small prints unveil the artist’s practices in detail, showing how process influences perception.

Enhanced with audio, video, and hybrid texts, the two exhibits combined offer a unique look into contemporary visions of land and changes in photographic practice.

Catalog
A catalog expanding upon the exhibit will be available.

The Landscape – National Juried Small Works Exhibition

.

The Landscape
National Juried Small Works Exhibition
Juror: John Paul Caponigro, Photographic Visual Artist

.

Exhibition Dates: November 26, 2022 – January 16, 2023
Reception: Saturday, November 26, 5-7 pm EST
Meet the Juror and Artists on Zoom: December 14, 7 pm EST – Register Here.

This is our tenth annual Small Works exhibition, and each work is affordably sized 13 inches or smaller for your Holiday gift list.

Our juror selected fifty-seven artworks by forty-six national artists working in photography, painting, and mixed media depicting the theme. These personal vistas of our land world include the expanse of outdoor scenery, varied environments and geography, and natural or man-made related landscape subjects.

About the Gallery Exhibition, The Landscape:
Landscape (noun): a picture representing a view of natural land scenery; the landforms of a region in the aggregate; a portion of territory that can be viewed at one time from one place.

Our national juried exhibition welcomes entries of traditional and alternative photography in color or black & white, photo-based works, paintings, mixed media, and small sculptural works depicting the theme, The Landscape. Our Juror will be looking for thought-provoking, creative works expressing the theme with representational or abstract interpretations showcasing the natural land world, the expanse of outdoor scenery, environments, geography, and natural or man-made related landscape subjects.

Aspects to consider: 

compelling abstraction, dramatic compositions, varied vantage points, detailed lines, shades, textures, rich tones, environmental concerns, and expressive scenes.

Aspects to avoid:
people, animals, sunrises, and sunsets unless the physical Landscape is the main focal point of the image or composition.
