ACGT presents Parkwood Gallery photography showWritten by Amy Biolchini | | ABiolchini@toledofreepress.com
The Arts Commission of Greater Toledo (ACGT) is opening a photography show at Parkwood Gallery with a reception with the artists from 6 to 8 p.m. Nov. 5. Approximately 40 works from Seder Burns, Matthew Donahue, Ruth Foote and Jane Vanden Eynden will be on display.
Michelle Carlson, program coordinator for ACGT, said the works have common threads although each photographer has unique techniques.
“A lot of them have a pop culture interest,” Carlson said.
Burns, an art instructor at the University of Toledo, will showcase a collection of large-scale photographs titled “Three Minutes: Short Adventures in Time and Space.” His images show a scene over the span of three minutes, bringing daily movements into perspective.
Donahue, a popular culture professor at Bowling Green State University, will present “Taking it to the Streets: An Art Car Experience.” This series of photographs documents his creation of “art cars,” vehicles elaborately decorated.
Foote, an associate professor at Owens Community College, will show photographs taken of the trash left by the tenants of a beauty shop.
Parkwood Gallery is located at 1838 Parkwood Ave., Suite 120, in Toledo.
