SUMMERTIME Salon 2013: An annual photography exhibit opens at The Robin Rice Gallery
Brian Pearson, Lucas 2007.
NEW YORK, NY.- The Robin Rice Gallery announces SUMMERTIME Salon 2013, an annual photography exhibit featuring gallery artists as well as a few newcomers. This year’s show opening reception will be held on June 26th, 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. and will be displayed until September 15th.

Marrying tasteful photographs with a common theme, Rice’s aesthetic captures the perfect image of summer. When one thinks of the summertime, a million different smells, sights, sounds, and memories manifest. The gallery does just that with its annual show, displaying a diversity of styles, themes, nuances, and artist techniques.

Rice curates 54 artists' handiwork with sensitivity and honesty. “This is my favorite exhibit even though it takes months to curate and a week to install. It is my curatorial showcase. I love the moment when the viewer is first drawn to an image,” says Rice. “Sometimes it’s indefinable; a moment when the viewer not only shares but also reconnects to an experience remembered.”

This year’s invitational image, Swimmer Cap by Greg Lotus emphasizes viewer eye movement through the use of hyper-realistic colors in vibrant swim headwear. A beautifully composed image that is influenced by fashion photography plays with a melodrama belied by the bright, animated color. Three young women pose in a retro gym, two of them distant and one up close captivating the viewer with intense regard that dares you to look further.

Rice’s forte is putting images together eclectic in form and style that all live together like her own personal collection. Crafted salon style from floor to ceiling; photographs of various sizes, colors, and shapes are juxtaposed like a puzzle that uniquely works. Refreshing beach landscapes and nostalgia of summertime recreation exist in an expert balance populating the gallery walls. The photographs are a feast for the senses, there is something for everyone; they pull you into an environment, an emotion, a familiar place. Viewers are invited to step into the diverse sensations that the season has to offer at Rice's The Summertime Salon 2013.
