Oakland and Beyond: Sense of Place
April 17 - May 17, 2014

Diallo Mwathi Jeffery’s panoramic images of Oakland will be shown along with four other artists whose work also evokes a strong sense of place. Over several years, Lee Nelson visited Los Angeles on business and squeezed in the time to pursue views of the Hollywood Sign. PHOTO presents a small selection of his project which manages to portray a wide range of neighborhoods and social scenes in southern California through glimpses of this one pop icon. Linda Fitch shows new landscapes from Scotland’s remote¬†coast. Her exquisite black and white darkroom prints glow with atmosphere. Charles Anselmo will present new images from his recent travels to Havana. These large colorful depictions of the old city and its collapsing buildings give a timeless view this unique location. Thomas Grubba debuts at PHOTO with his study of York Minster, the largest Gothic cathedral in Britain. His crisp rendering of this architecture captures the details and the grand spaces of this historic structure in black and white. ¬† OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, April 17, 6:00 to 8:00
