• John Humble: Los Angeles Cibachromes - Joseph Bellows Gallery, La Jolla, Oct. 19

    Joseph Bellows Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming solo exhibition, John Humble Los Angeles Cibachromes. The exhibition will open September 16th and continue thru October 31st 2019, with a reception scheduled October 19th, from 5-8 pm. This is a FREE Event. Guests welcome. The exhibition will present a selection of vintage Cibachrome color photographs that the artist created in 1980 as he began his highly acclaimed extended exploration and documentation of the greater Los Angeles landscape. Using a view camera and color materials, Humble created a vast document of the city’s urban surroundings, describing a changing physical and social landscape. The artist noted, "swift changes in the built environment, particularly the often awkward and interesting juxtapositions of old and new”. Humble’s brilliant photographs follow a particular lineage of picture making, one that honors their subject through a clear and straightforward rendering. His images are contemporary depictions of the urban environment, yet his methodology reminds his audience of Eugene Atget’s views of Paris, wherein both artists assembled a vision of their city with a sense of awe and with the knowledge of its changing subject matter. Joseph Bellows Gallery will present a selection of images printed by the artist in the vibrant Cibachrome process, a revered color photographic printing process that produces richly rendered hues and excellent color permanence. The exhibition will feature a selection of rare vintage 8 x 10 and 16 x 20 inch prints. Humble’s work was celebrated with the publication of A Place in the Sun and with an exhibition of the same title at the J. Paul Getty Museum. In 2016 Nazraeli Press published the monograph Manifest Density as part of their critically praised NZ Library Series. His photographs are held within the collections of numerous museums including: the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Center for Creative Photography, Museum of Photographic Arts, Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

  • Open Reception for "Modern San Diego" Exhibit at Downtown Library

    San Diego Central Library

    Let's meet to celebrate the opening of "Modern San Diego" at the Downtown Library. Get there early and find parking in the parking structure (free for two hours with library validation). Or take the trolley to get there. Ask the librarian where the exhibit is and take the elevator up. Look for me. I will have a name tag on that says "Marcia - Meet Up." We'll enjoy the photos and the reception together. Info about the artist and his work: Recognized for his work in Los Angeles and Palm Springs, it is not widely known that between 1934 and 2007, architectural photographer Julius Shulman shot over 200 projects in San Diego. Shulman's work documented the region's evolving 20th century architectural landscape, and he played an instrumental role in sharing California's unique post-war modernism with a wide audience. This exhibition, curated by Keith York, will present selected photographs of Shulman's projects in San Diego and ephemera that will contextualize this historically significant work. The exhibition will be on display through January 19, 2020.
