Eye of the Camera - Evoke at the Littleton Museum
The Littleton Fine Arts Board is proud to announce the latest exhibition at the Littleton Museum, Eye of the Camera - Evoke. Located in the Fine Arts Gallery, the exhibition is on view February 22, 2019 to March 24, 2019.
To evoke is to call forth, or to summon a particularly strong mental image, emotion, feeling, or reaction to the conscious mind. For this 53rd annual open competition, Colorado photographers were invited to submit images which explored the concept, and could be traditional, non-representational, or part of the artistic process.
Fourth generation Coloradan Gary Emrich has been working in the field of photography for over 40 years. With an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Emrich has exhibited regionally, nationally, and internationally, and is represented by Robischon Gallery in Denver. He was an instructor at University of Colorado, Denver, and at Metropolitan State College, and was Head of Photography and Video at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. Recently, he participated in the “New Territory: Landscape Photography Today” exhibition at the Denver Art Museum.
Deeply interested in the culture of everyday life, Gary Emrich utilizes a variety of photographic and video formats to explore personal memory and collective history. “I am interested in how and why humans endow certain objects, events, and images with special meaning by preserving them.” For this year’s Eye of the Camera exhibition, Emrich brings a deep awareness to the theme of “Evoke.”
Awards were given for Best of Show (Gabrielle Graves, A Temporary Martyr), First Place (Devin Johnson, Healing Process: Privacy; Shinjuku Crosswalk), and Second Place (Steffany Murcia-Wing, Youth Won’t Stop). Artist Gabrielle Graves currently works in the Photography and New Media and Painting departments at the internationally known Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado. Graves will receive $1,500.00 and has been invited to participate in a two-person Best of Show exhibit at the Museum in 2020.
The Littleton Museum is open Tuesday-Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Saturday from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. The museum is closed on Mondays and major holidays.
