Etherton Gallery is pleased to present the first exhibition of the 2014-15 season, Without and Within, featuring a selection of recent work by photographers Keith Carter and Kate Breakey. The exhibition explores the relationship between what Carter terms the "externally objective and internally boundless." Both photographers create images rooted in documentary that also access myth, symbolism and metaphor. Carter evokes the secrets and folklore of the people and places of East Texas; while Breakey’s landscape and still life images reveal interior states of being. Without and Within opens September 13 and runs through November 1, 2014. In conjunction with the show, an installation of artist Ed Musante’s pigment paintings of birds on vintage cigar boxes will be featured in Etherton’s in-house pop-up gallery.
A reception welcoming the artists will be held at the gallery at 7-10 pm, Saturday, September 13, 2014. Keith Carter will sign copies of his books From Uncertain to Blue and A Certain Alchemy, and Kate Breakey will sign copies of her monograph Painted Light at the reception.
Inaugurating The Etherton Gallery Distinguished Lecture Series, Keith Carter and Kate Breakey will discuss their work with Chief Curator Joshua Chuang at the Center for Creative Photography (CCP) at the University of Arizona, on September 12, 2014 at 5:30pm. For more information, please call the CCP at 520-621-7970.
