This exhibition spans three galleries and dives into the history of photography, contemporary artists experimentations with it, and the influence and success of artwork reproducibility in the late 1900s. With installations, historic photographs, and masterpieces, this exhibition has something for any 1900s art enthusiast.The Pechter Gallery will exhibit contemporary artists who use photography as an element of their artistic practice. Some artists use sculpture, fiber art, 3-D rendering software and installation while also using photographic techniques such as darkroom printing, digital manipulation, and scanning. It's an exploration of the contemporary art world’s loose definitions of photography. In the Pechter Gallery, guests will question the definitions of photography today while also seeing how the ideas from the Pictorialists have blossomed in this new era. Artists include April Friges, Chris McGinnis, Heather Brand, Patty Kennedy-Zafred, Eric D. Charlton, Huang Guaier and Wang Runzhong, Laura Krasnow, Lori Hepner, and Zeshan Ahmed.
