Current Exhibit: BLACK & WHITE vs. COLOR
March 6 - April 17
This "mock face-off" will feature photographs by Walter Crump, Mary Flatley, John Hyde, and Jim Siegel.
Photographs by four Boston-area artists will be on display at The Distillery Gallery in South Boston as part of a mock "face-off" between the two basic forms of traditional photography in the upcoming exhibit, BLACK & WHITE vs. COLOR. Opening on Thursday, March 6, the show will include two Distillery artists, each paired with an invited guest to complete the teams.
Team BLACK & WHITE:
South Boston resident, John Hyde, is a graduate of the Art Institute of Boston and a fifth-year scholarship recipient. Hyde works almost exclusively as a black and white photographer and often explores the use of unconventional cameras. For this exhibit Hyde focuses on more traditional black and white photography, offering a dozen examples of his efforts, and solidifying a concrete defensive line for his team.
Balancing out team COLOR, Boston resident, Mary Flatley, received a degree in photography from Columbia College, Chicago. More traditional in process, Flatley's works wander through colorful juxtapositions of strange and banal situations - moments which highlight the America that exists outside of urban areas. She will contribute half a dozen 18" x 20" pieces and has been alluded to as the "secret weapon" of team COLOR.
