Pomfret School’s photography students exhibiting works at the School’s P.S. ART Gallery at Silver Circle Gallery and Art Center in Putnam
POMFRET, CONN. (JAN. 9, 2014)—In “Altered,” the most recent show at P.S. ART in Putnam’s Silver Circle Gallery and Art Center. featuring the works of Pomfret School students and faculty, teacher Lindsay Lehmann’s advanced and AP 2D Design class students have taken what they have learned so far to a higher level to create one-of-a-kind images. Inspired by the work of Iranian photographer and filmmaker Shirin Neshat, whose work is in the show She Who Tells a Story currently up at the MFA in Boston (from August 13 – January 12), the students examined what happened when they altered their photographs during post-production to include mixed media. WIth results ranging from simple to ornate, students explored multiple techniques in 2D and 3D design, working with the image to either change its intention, enhance it, or explore a variety of techniques.
“The show is intended to remind viewers that there is more to the art of photography than just creating a “pretty picture,” says Lehmann. “Our young photographers come to realize that a piece of work may never be finished, and creating is a part of life-long exploration.” Seventeen students, all juniors and seniors, are represented.
“Altered” runs from January 14 – March 18, with an opening reception on Friday, January 17, from 6 – 8, Silver Circle Gallery and Art Center, 75 Main Street in Putnam, Conn. Gallery hours: Wednesdays through Saturdays, 11:00 – 5:00 and Sundays, noon to 4:00.
