Body Ephemeral

When: April 3–May 30, 2009
Artist Reception: Rescheduled for Friday, May 15, 2009, 6-10 pm, because the original one on April 17 was fizzled out by a late spring snow storm! Featuring the music of Roger Green.

Another inspirational show at VERTIGO, featuring the photographic works of Richard Peterson, Rayna Manger Tedford, and Chris Perez.


Richard Peterson

Rayna Manger Tedford

Chris Perez

While these three artists are local, and accomplished artists using the medium of photography, the concept regarding abstraction of the figure will enable this exhibit to cross boundaries between the medium of the photographic technique, the relevance of an ever controversial portrayal of the figure in an art context, and most importantly the conceptual (perhaps psychological ?) vision that lies between process and image. Mind, Process, and esoteric Beauty.
