Surrounds says
Solo Exhibition of new work by Kalee Appleton
Opening Recption: Sat. April 9th, 7-10pm
Exhibition continues until May 1st

Surrounds: Viewers of photographs, particularly in today’s digital era, approach photographs with an air of skepticism. One of the most prevalent photographic techniques in the aid of this deceptive practice is the photographic backdrop, popular among pedestrian photography studios for decades. The photographs of idealized landscapes and utopian worlds become objects of transportation, portraying the subject in a halfheartedly illusionary light. These objects, used overtime begin to gain history of their own, due to mass production and repetitive use. Surrounds examines this history and transforms the photographic backdrop into something that it was never meant to be, a subject. By incorporating hints of photographic studio equipment and digital aesthetic fads, like repetitive gridded imagery on computer desktops, digital editing tools, nostalgia aids in creating a new history for the backdrop.

Operating Hours: Saturday & Sunday, Noon to 5 p.m. Weekdays by appointment
