Frank Armstrong | Often in a Different Landscape

Frank Armstrong, Sharp County, Arkansas, 2012
In most cases, people think of landscapes as a sweeping view of mountains, lakes, rivers, meadows, etc., but with a cultural overlay of human presence, they become social landscapes. Armstrong proves landscape is not necessarily defined by its scope and size, it can be defined by its relevance to its usage.

This exhibition will be on view at the Hammond Hall Art Gallery at Fitchburg State University from February 25th to April 8th, with an Artist Talk on Thursday, March 19th at 3:30pm.


Elizabeth Ellenwood | Of Light And Line

Elizabeth Ellenwood, Curtain, 2013
Elizabeth Ellenwood’s photographs are distinctly rooted in place and the everyday, and her process and treatment of subject matter emphasize the importance of the elements of photography. Ellenwood’s work is indebted to photographic history—modernism, constructivism, and the angular planes of The New Topographics—yet she creates a distinct new interpretation of the often overlooked elements of the everyday landscape. The elegant simplicity of her compositions highlights the way in which she negotiates natural light, line, shadow, and richness of tone. Nuanced views of outside wires, building façades, and the billowing of a curtain reveal modernist sensibilities and experimentations with form that complicate otherwise familiar spaces to produce a new view on traditional subject matter.

This exhibition will be at the Danforth Art Museum in Framingham, Mass. from March 15-May 17.
Members Only Reception: Saturday, March 14th from 6:00-8:00pm.
Artist Talks: Wednesday, April 8th at 12:30pm and Sunday, April 19th at 3:00pm.

Atelieri O. Haapala, Old School Archaeology II, 2009
Our dear friends from Finland, Saara Salmi and Marco Melander, the dynamic duo otherwise known as Atelieri O. Haapala have been quite busy over the past year. They just wrapped up three solo exhibitions, including trips to Edinburgh, Russia and Berlin, and directed one music video along the way. We're hoping to get them back to Boston in the near future. If you were at our Dress Up exhibition back in 2013, you'll understand why.

For those of you not familiar with their work, check out these Contemporary Cabinet Cards that are available through Panopticon Gallery.

Guitar Heroes: Photographs from Behind the Six String

Loads of young, aspiring guitar players use to cover their bedroom walls with photographs and posters of their favorite musicians. I know this first hand because when I was younger, I was like that. As society has moved into a more digital world, today's guitar heroes are not worshiped like their predecessors from the past––the game has changed. Just search YouTube and you’ll see an endless crop of exceptional guitar players from all over the world looking to be discovered.

This exhibition at Panopticon Gallery is meant to inspire those musicians who strive for greatness. We are mixing photographs of the famous, with the not so famous––from the stage to the street. So come join us and be inspired as we showcase these guitar-themed photographs by Ron Pownall, Rowland Scherman, Roger Farrington, Jeff Thiebauth, Daniel Tedeschi, Harold Feinstein, Ernest C. Withers, Leslii Stevens, Paris Visone, Gary Samson, Steven McBride and others to be announced soon.

As part of our philanthropic efforts, we have selected these two music non-profit organizations to raise money and awareness for during this exhibition. They are the:

Keeping the Blues Alive organization, started by Joe Bonamassa
The Community Music Center of Boston.

Early Sponsors For This Exhibition Include:
