Fun Show! Is becoming a biennial tradition. PDNB Gallery
once again refrains from showing strictly photo-based art and instead turns its focus on the world of collectibles.
Just as before, Fun Show II, features a number of objects from toys, art glass, paintings, objet d'art, and rare items that question what makes an object desirable.
For the month of August, the gallery transformed itself into a collector's paradise, swarming with something for everyone.
Fun Show II, runs from August 10th - August 31st, with a closing reception, Saturday August 31st from 5 - 8pm.
The summer heat is around the corner which means it is time for the ubiquitous summer group shows.
In the past, PDNB Gallery has presented themed group shows, as in the current Scene of the Crime exhibition and last year's Russian photography show, From Moscow with Love.
This Group Show, simply stated, illustrates the breadth of the gallery's offerings without a special theme.
Many different art movements in photography are exhibited, from the early 20th Century to now. Modernist, documentary, street photography, conceptual and experimental photography encompass the gallery.
Artists included in this important show are: Peter Brown, Bob Chilton, William Eggleston, Randal Ford, Birney Imes, Jimmy & Dena Katz, Misty Keasler, Andre Kertesz, Philip Lamb, Neil Leifer, Chema Madoz, Gregori Maiofis, Rhondal McKinney, Ivan Mikhailov, Delilah Montoya, Bill Owens, Esteban Pastorino, Vitaly Smirnov, Robyn Stacy, Todd Stewart, Chris Verene, Wu Jialin and more.
Most artists are represented in museum collections and come from various regions of the world, including the U.S., South America, Russia, Europe, and Australia. It is an encyclopedic show that gives one an understanding of why photography has and always will be considered a major medium of expression.
PDNB Gallery will be closed August 11 - August 19, 2013
