This Thursday, October 16, 2014 Kettle Art proudly presents extremes in photography with two openings in one night!
Justin Terveen will unveil ‘New Works’ in Gallery A, featuring recent ‘Dallas Heavy’ photographs and more.
Few artists have captured the beauty of a cityscape, or the hearts of adoring fans, quite like photographer Justin Terveen has done in Dallas.
Terveen’s breathtaking images of the skyline are found within countless blogs and publications across the internet, and in numerous private and corporate collections. When USA Today’s readers voted Dallas as Readers’ Choice for 2014 Best International Skyline, it was due in large part to Terveen’s iconic images.
Richard Andrew Sharum‘s ‘In the Heart’ featuring street photography from around the world, opens in Gallery B.
Richard Andrew Sharum debuts his compelling series documenting the often obscure landscape of urban spaces around the world and the inhabitants of these areas. Sharum’s images depict the contrast between flesh and architecture, the fragility of life juxtaposed with formidable concrete structures, and the light that both illuminates and deepens the shadows between them.
In recognition of Sharum’s work on the series abroad, he was selected among international applicants for the Magnum Photos (Paris) Masterclass with Jonas Bendiksen during HOST at FOTOGRAFIA EUROPEA 2014 in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and for the Magnum Photos (New York) Masterclass with Moises Saman and Abbas in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Both resulted in public exhibitions of his work in each respective city.
In Summer of 2014, Sharum launched “Observe Dallas”, a public installation project aimed at encouraging observers of anonymously placed photographs within the Downtown area to interact with their surroundings in unique ways.
