10 a.m.-5 p.m. Wed.-Sat. Sept. 6-30.
New cyanotypes by Beverly Buys, mixed media photographs by Carey Roberson, images by Don House with a water theme, color photos by Sabine Schmidt and backroads images by Robbie Brindley are on exhibit through September at Justus Fine Art.
House says of his work:
“If I were to inventory the images from fifty years of photographing, the largest portion would start with the key word river. Since calling Arkansas home thirty-five years ago, if I’m not in studio, I am on a river – The White, The Buffalo, The Mulberry, Lee Creek, The Kings, War Eagle. Rivers are places of magic and have affected the way I photograph, how I view the world. It is more than the sound of water, more than overused metaphors of movement and passage, they are places where children go feral and adults get lost for their own good, places of significant rejuvenation.”
“I go out alone and drive; It’s a form of meditation. I’m drawn to the quietness of the Delta and its lonely roads and forgotten places. Things in a place where a simple way of life seems to be forgotten, or at the least, admired. I romanticize the cicadas and humidity. I adore the dust in my mouth while thunderstorms roll in on the hottest summer day. My work is a slow process. Sometimes driving all day over many miles of backroads and dirt paths, passing small towns and empty fields, forms of kudzu and abandoned structures, to take one picture.”
The gallery, 827 A Central House House Ave., will host a reception from 5-9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, as part of Hot Springs’ monthly Gallery Walk downtown.
