We visited on July 12 the opening of the exhibit Not Dark Yet at the Broad Street Gallery on Crestwick Island. I wanted to take photos then and blog about it, but it was too crowded so I returned today. For those of you who know me, you know I tend to favor small intimate galleries and this is certainly one of them. The internal layout of the gallery is simple, yet elegant and well thought through; there is one large lobby coach with a dark red blanket casually thrown upon it on a carpet in the center of the large room. The current exhibit is inspired by the music by Bob Dylan. Each of the eleven artists had been asked to pick their own Dylan song and create a photograph inspired by their particular choice of music. The artists are .kiki, Cipherscape, Senna Coronet, Doc, Dantelicia Ethaniel, Harbor Galaxy, edie Horngold, Isa Messioptra, Amona Savira, Hillany Scofield, and Maloe Vansant. Each artist contributed only one photograph and each photograph is outstanding. Beneath each image is written the particular lyric that inspired the photographer to create it. Beautifully done! More than anything else, and this exhibit proves it, this gallery is truly about quality and not quantity.
