Holly Gordon – My Long EYEland Finding One’s Visual Voice
Start Date: May 6, 2017
End Date: May 6, 2017
Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
May 6, 2017 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
The evolution of photography is paralleled and illustrated in this evocative program by Long Island artist, resident, and educator Holly Gordon; who has traveled the world…yet is continually daunted by the visual bounty of her home turf…the Long Island landscape.
This presentation has been designed especially for Long Island Photo Gallery and provides insight into the expansive possibilities of the personal relationship between camera and EYE and boundless inspiration from Long Island.
The above image, ‘Three Parasols’ was photographed with film and developed and printed traditionally in the wet-darkroom in the 1990’s. ‘Indian Summer’, a recent image from the Brush/Lens Projectexhibitions and collaboration with North Shore painter Ward Hooper, was taken digitally and developed and created in the digital darkroom.
The creative journey between these two works, before and beyond, will be explored, shared and discussed during this presentation.
While technology has made it easy and successful for everyone to take pictures today…it has created a plethora of sameness.
What sets some photographs apart from all the others is what finding your visual voice is all about. Join us Saturday, May 6, 2017 at the Long Island Photo Gallery and discover the path to your visual voice!
The “My Long EYEland – Finding Your Visual Voice” event will feature an:
- EDUCATIONAL slideshow and talk titled “My Long EYEland” by, Holly Gordon
- Q & A discussion with Holly Gordon, LIPG Curators and fellow attendees
About Holly Gordon
The digital darkroom has taken Holly Gordon‘s vision far beyond photography, as we know it. Although she stopped painting 20 years ago, her brush and lens are reunited. Her reputation has been established as both a fine art and a documentary photographer. She has captured the environmentally important essence of Galapagos, Antarctica and China and these photography essays and lectures have gained visibility in museums, galleries, schools and libraries. Generating wide interest in the arts community and media, her work has appeared in The New York Times and Newsday, Long Island Pulse and Long Island Woman—to name a few. Able to articulate her creative process and engage and inspire others, makes her an indispensable art advocate. She recently enjoyed a major exhibition at Bayard Cutting Arboretum and her Antarctica: Journey to the Extreme exhibit at the Alfred Van Loen Gallery in 2016 has already been invited to be reprised in 2017. Locally, she is an artist with Long Island Photo Gallery, fotofoto gallery, Huntington Art Center, John’s Village Art and Frame Gallery in Babylon and a member of East End Arts, Islip, Patchogue and Huntington Arts Councils.
