International photographer, Jason DeBose, will speak about his art at the opening reception for his solo exhibition “They Left 150 Years Ago" on Thursday, May 30th at 6 p.m. at The Tech Garden. The reception is free and open to the public.
“They Left 150 Years Ago” is a visual introduction to the Finnish city of Tampere and its local lifestyle, as well as a visual look at the Finnish influence on America’s northeast cities and at Finnish-American heritage. The exhibition also aims to reenergize the dormant sister city relationship between the cities of Syracuse, NY and Tampere, Finland; official ties originally established over 20 years ago with the co-hosting of a boxing competition. This exhibit will be the first portion of a two part engagement that focuses on the sister city relationship. The second portion, a premier screen of the Finnish black comedy film, “Iron Sky” will be announced shortly.
Jason DeBose is an acclaimed photographer from Pasadena, California. Mr. DeBose's work has been showcased internationally, including the countries of Ireland, Denmark, Portugal, Estonia, and United States. The exhibition will be on display from May 30th to July 15th at The Tech Garden in Syracuse.
Exhibit until May 24, 2013
Dreamt Realities is an exhibition featuring the surreal work of four Syracuse-based photographers: Eddie Colleli, Barbara Conte-Gaugel, Jeff Madison, and Heidi Vantassel.
This exhibition will be on display from May 1 to May 27. It features phantasmagorical pictures that explore geographical spaces. Using both traditional and cutting edge techniques, these photographers create/freeze their imagery drawing a fine line between what's real and what's imaged, for example, a neglected house becomes a fascinating nightmare, a forgotten shore resembles a timeless dream, and a staged environment is inspired by a hazy dream.
The reception for Dreamt Realities is free and open to the public. The photographers will be speaking about their series and artistic process.
Immediate past exhibit:
"Drawn Digital" The first in the 2013 series brought together Central New York's creative community, it featured graphic designers who illustrate. Drawn Digital is a celebration of creating images, under direct manipulation of the artist, through the use of pen and ink as well as digital tools and applications. Graphic designers/illustrators included are: Jim Brenneman, Nick Machia, Jeff Madison, John M.Paone, and Mitzie Testani. These artists, not only share an expertise in the use of graphic tablets and of bitmap and vector-based applications ("painting" and "drawing" programs), but a love for drawing and a unique sensibility over their subject matters. Renaissance Architecture, imagination, and everyday life in Central New York are some of their forms of inspiration. Works will be on display during March and April at The Tech Garden's gallery space.
