Gallery news & updates:
Camille Seaman’s new book, “Melting Away” will be published in October 2014. Signed copies of the book will be available through the gallery. Call to reserve your copy.
For ten years Camille Seaman has documented the rapidly changing landscapes of Earth’s polar regions. As an expedition photographer aboard small ships in the Arctic and Antarctic, she has chronicled the accelerating effects of global warming on the jagged face of nearly fifty thousand icebergs. Seaman’s unique perspective of the landscape is entwined with her Native American upbringing: she sees no two icebergs as alike; each responds to its environment uniquely, almost as if they were living beings. Through Seaman’s lens, each towering chunk of ice—breathtakingly beautiful in layers of smoky gray and turquoise blue—takes on a distinct personality, giving her work the feel of majestic portraiture. Melting Away collects seventy-five of Seaman’s most captivating photographs, life-affirming images that reveal not only what we have already lost, but more importantly what we still have that is worth fighting to save.
The Susan Spiritus Gallery is available for your private party or special event, whether it be for a lecture, cocktails, a Sunday afternoon soiree or a sit down dinner. We can accommodate a small group of about 50 people depending upon your event. Please call or email the gallery to discuss the specifics.
A great slideshow was created by Yahoo News Canada for S. Korean photographer, Sueng Hoon Park showing 18 of his woven tapestries.
It worth the watch! His work continues to get better and better.
My recent visit to Texas gave me access to Cara Barer’s studio and her world of ‘book art.’ I was so excited to see her creations that I have prepared a newsletter on the artist and how she does what she does. The link to the newsletter is here, below and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have. It is truly inspiring to see and read. I also visited with Tami Bone, whose works have now been added to the gallery’s website: http://susanspiritusgallery.com/artist/tami-bone/mythos/
A large collection of photographs by Eikoh Hosoe have been added to the Susan Spiritus Gallery website. Please be sure to visit the pages and view all of the works from Embrace, Ordeal By Roses, Kamatachi, Simon, A Private Landscape, Gaudi Ceilings and a selection of images from the artist’s workshops.
Please be sure to locate the works of our newest photographer, William Furniss, from Hong Kong. His water abstractions are not only colorful, but can be printed large and will be just perfect for any corporate space! During my recent trip to Hong Kong I visited William’s studio and saw each of these images in person. They are quite spectacular!
We have a new classification under the artists’ pages on the website which reads: Vintage Works for Sale. The images which will be found under this category will be ‘ones of’ only, older prints, and in some cases may truly be vintage, but in most cases, will not be vintage as the name suggests, but earlier prints being offered from private collections for resale. There will always be a variety of artist’s works found under this category. Currently there are images by Max Yavno, Jerry N. Uelsmann, Andre Kertesz, George Tice, Robert Doisneau, Ansel Adams and newly added work by New Mexico photographer, Betty Hahn.
