The Work of
Photography Now: one hundred portfolios
March 27-April 29, 2007
An art exhibit featuring creative digital prints by Florida photographer Maggie Taylor and selections from the new Wright State University Art Galleries DVD publication “Photography Now: one hundred portfolios” opens on Tuesday, March 27, at Wright State.
The exhibition in the University Art Galleries in the Creative Arts Center will be on view through April 29. Hours are 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., Tuesday-Friday, and noon - 5 p.m., Saturday-Sunday. A lecture by Taylor will be presented on Sunday, April 22, at 3:30 p.m. in M252 Creative Art Center. The exhibition and lecture are free to the public.
Taylor uses a computer and flatbed scanner in place of a camera to combine objects with vintage portraits to create unusual images. Taylor is from Cleveland and holds a MFA degree in photography from the University of Florida. During the past 20 years her photographs have been shown in more than 60 exhibitions throughout the United States. In 1996 and 2001 she received State of Florida Individual Artist Fellowships. Her lecture will focus on integrating technology and the computer into the art-making process.
“Photography Now” includes work by 12 artists from WSU Art Professor Ron Geibert’s DVD project. The show features portfolios selected from a pool of 1,200 submissions representing 60 countries as a sampling of the techniques being practiced today in the changing world of photography.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Wright State College of Liberal Arts, the Friends of the Galleries, the Ohio Arts Council and Fairborn Camera.
