“Desert Textures” on Display in Art Gallery
Holy Family University’s Art Gallery presents “Desert Textures” a show by award-winning photographer Samuel Fee. The exhibit runs from October 2—30, with an artist reception held on Tuesday, October 8, from 7-9 pm.
Through imagery of landscapes from the American West, Fee’s work illuminates and records changes to the natural world through time. Desert Textures considers a specific landscape in New Mexico that exists in a state of constant visual transformation as a result of sunlight and wind.
Fee is a professor of computing and information studies at Washington & Jefferson College. His work “is designed to challenge two common misperceptions: the first is that the desert is a lifeless and bleak landscape, and the second is that a landscape is still and without narrative. On the contrary, the desert is full of life, but that life takes different—and I would argue, more dazzling—forms from what many viewers might expect. And the sudden emergence of those forms provides the action in the narrative that I believe landscape photography can tell.”
The University Art Gallery is located on the Lower Level of the Education & Technology Center on the University’s Northeast Philadelphia campus. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
