From a press release:
Riley and Rehg exhibits open at Upstairs Artspace, Aug. 2
Upstairs Artspace is pleased to announce the opening of a show that offers gallery visitors the opportunity to see, through different mediums and with two distinct philosophies, what an artist sees beneath the façade of a person or object. Mixed media artist Barbara Rehg and photographer Owen Riley Jr. bring attention to the detail that defines what lies beneath the surface with the intention of opening our eyes to new understanding. The opening reception for the revelatory exhibits takes place at the Upstairs, Saturday, August 2, 5:00-7:30 p.m.
“Both Riley and Rehg are interested in processes that result in revelation, most especially Riley, who embraces the extremely laborious, dirty and imperfect 19th century process of wet-plate colloidon photography,” said Nancy Holmes, who is a member of the Upstairs exhibit committee chaired by artist, Margaret Curtis.
