About “The Black and White Photo Show”, January 9 - February 27, 2016, Reception: Saturday, January 9 from 2 to 4pm

In his curatorial statement Norman Lundn writes:
“This is a tonal show.  We have selected work that is printed in black and white, but of greater importance is that it is tonal in concept. What this means is that the artist must start out thinking only in terms of tone (or value). 
 
Eliminating color reduces the artist’s options; reduced options make those still available more important. Color, as used to define space, is gone; those nuances of gray tonalities must make spatial distinctions. Color, as a point of emphasis, is gone, so high/low contrast relationships must take its place.
 
Much of the ability to communicate the three dimensional world without color is possible because value (tone) actually plays the greater role in our perceptions. It is always a component of color but color is not a component of value. Because of this greater role, we are able to interpret tonal images as convincing impressions of the three-dimensional world. We are so accustomed to looking at images this way that we do not always consciously acknowledge that the visual information perceived is devoid of color. 
 
Artists, working in black and white are aware of the above because when they look at subject matter that has color they are seeing it as a continuum of values. Incorporating that information into their art requires a particular kind of visual thinking. And, part of that thinking includes the intention that the viewer becomes aware of the nature of the artist’s black and white concept. As in all art, it is the end result rather than the means that matters most to the viewer. When all is done well, then even the most ordinary subject matter will communicate a powerful expressive presence. Such is the case with the work in this show.”
 

"The Black and White Photo Show" includes the work of Marsha Burns, Eduardo Calderon, Dianne Kornberg, Carolyn Krieg, Glenn Rudolph, and Andrew Yates (1945 - 2011). Opening Reception: January 9, 2016, 2 - 4pm
