Jan 6 – Feb 10, 2013
Allentown photographer Anderson is well known for his photographs of the abandoned Bethlehem Steel plant. The selection of images in this exhibition show Pennsylvania from another viewpoint. Like the steel plant photos, there is always careful attention to color and shape, but this time Anderson captures views we might overlook: a blue sky and a mundane chain-link fence; an otherwise ordinary side yard with a surprise dash of color. He draws attention, in quiet, subtle images, to the beauty around us, if we will only stop and look.
A limited edition artist’s book with color pigment prints, printed and hand bound by the artist, and introduction by Stephen Perloff is available.
Theo Anderson will give an artist’s talk Monday, February 4, 4:10 p.m., Williams Center 108.
