Snow White

Opening Reception: Saturday, December 18 6-8pm

December 16, 2010 through January 16, 2011

Carrie Haddad Photographs is pleased to present Snow White, a group exhibit featuring work by ten photographers centered on the subjects of snow, ice, winter scenes - both real and fantastical - and other views encompassing varying shades of white.
Exhibiting photographers include Valerie Hammond,  Ida Weygandt, Michael Sibilia, Kahn & Selesnick, John Griebsch, Jefferson Hayman, Karen Cunningham, Lisa Frank, Holly Northrop and Lependorf & Shire.

Valerie Hammond’s recent photographs incorporate themes from well-known fairytales. Hammond says, “I see myself as a raconteur telling stories filtered through the lens of fairytales and daily life…using fairytales to come to terms with the dilemmas of one’s inner life and day-to-day musings.” Karen Cunningham’s photographs of the imposing glaciers of Patagonia, a land regarded as a mystic environment itself, are full of myths and legends. Kahn & Selesnick are known for their visual presentations of narrative, their creation of photo novellas. Included in the exhibit we see two vintage scenes from their 1998 series, The Circular River: We Visit A Mountain Top Shrine Built To Honor A Famous Buryat Lama, and Balag Dancing. John Griebsch shows a palette of white with his ariel images of graphically patterned roads and orchards. Lisa Frank makes large scale photographs that depict complex designs and patterns of nature; they are densely ornamental in the tradition of wallpaper. With her Holga camera, Holly Northrop captures a rural landscape revealed through snow. Ida Weygandt’s Snow Angel is both a landscape and a self-portrait. Jefferson Hayman’s photographs include a single tree embraced with snow and miniature prints of a white rosebud, a coffee mug and eyeglasses displayed in handmade vintage frames. Michael Sibilia visited Alaska for 10 days and returned with a portfolio of images titled with date, time and temperature: 1-4-09 1:00pm -32f, 2009. Lependorf & Shire exhibit two images from their series, Shirokuro, which developed from an appreciation of elegant and serene Japanese sumi-e paintings.

An opening reception for the artists will be held on Saturday, December 18 from 6 – 8pm. All are invited to attend.
