by Dave on June 4, 2010

On Saturday June 12th, from 6:00 – 9:00 P.M., Gallery 50 kicks off the summer season with an artist’s reception for Photo One2 [or Photo One (2)], its second annual photographic exhibition. “This is my favorite show of they year”, states gallery owner Jay Pastore. “ Works by nine photographers using different processes will be on display. What I enjoy about photography is its ability to capture a moment in time and create an emotional response”.

On display will be works by local photographer Jim Mott (which includes an image of the Rehoboth Beach Boardwalk). Mott uses a technique named Van Dyke Brown, an early photographic printing process. Tintype photographs (another historical process in which a light sensitive photographic emulsion is poured directly onto a sheet of metal and then exposed) by West Chester, PA artist Lisa Tyson Ennis will also be on display. There will also be works by Brandywine, PA photographer Harold Ross who uses a technique named “light painting”. With this process, the subject is placed in a completely dark room and photographed by opening the camera shutter for an extended period of time and then lighting or “painting” it with a hand held light source. This serves to enhance both the color and texture of the subject. Pittsburgh-based artists Duane Rieder, a nationally recognized photographer, and Rob Larson will have digital works along with ink jet transfers covered with a starch-based paste and varnish. Rounding out the exhibition will be portraits by Chad States, New York artist Phillip Gutman, and Baltimore photographer Pickles Kinion.

The show runs through July 8. For more information including an online preview visit the gallery website at www.50contemporaryart.com, or call the gallery at 302.227.2050. The gallery is located at 50 Wilmington Ave. in Rehoboth Beach and is closed on Tuesdays.
