Momchilovs Dolores

  • Momchilov’s “Dolores”

Justus Fine Art Gallery, 827 A Central Ave. in Hot Springs, is showing photography by Cindy Momchilov and Don House as well as work by other gallery artists in its November exhibit, “Near and Far.” The gallery will be open after hours, 5-9 p.m., on Friday, Nov. 4, for the monthly Hot Springs Gallery Walk.

House’s series of seven photographs, made with an obsolete Polaroid film, were made to “capture the essence of what makes Fayetteville unique,” he’s quoted as saying in the gallery news release. Momchilov’s photographs were made with a plastic Diana camera. “When I use my Diana cameras no one runs away from me. I look harmless, as well as clueless. It’s easy to make multiple exposures on the same piece of film and the lens has every possible every optical defect. The shutter sounds cheap when it fires and the mechanism for winding the film makes it sound like a toy.”

Also featured in the exhibit: Work by Steve Griffith, Donnie Copeland, Rene Hein, Robyn Horn and Dolores Justus. The gallery also has available work by Michael Ashley, Kari Albright, Hugh Dunnahoe, Mike Elsass, Tony Saladino, Rebecca Thompson and others.
