Sound + Vision – An Art Tribute to Rock & Roll
Sound + Vision – An Art Tribute to Rock & Roll, The Dark Room’s next photography exhibition is on display from August 7th through September 30th and will celebrate its opening on Friday, August 7th, 2015 with a reception held by the artists (Abby Gillardi and Kenny Williamson), the International Photography Hall of Fame & Museum, and curator Jason Gray from 6-9pm during the First Fridays Art Walk in Grand Center.
At The Dark Room, Kenny Williamson’s explosive concert images of international music stars like Elton John, Taylor Swift, and K.I.S.S. illustrate the dynamic skill-set that have made Kenny into the official photographer for the area’s largest music venues. His work places the viewer at the frontlines of performances that have defined a culture.
Abby Gillardi’s images, in the same space, are testament to a spirit that is equal parts fan and insider, which has made her work highly sought out by local publications including Eleven Magazine and the Riverfront Times. These photographs express an intimacy and a reverence that are at odds. Meanwhile, commercial photographer John Paul Torno’s images of Jerry Garcia (Grateful Dead) communicate the true fan’s perspective, seen through the youthful eyes of someone whose vision is now a trusted commodity for its technical efficiency.
A partnership between Grand Center Inc., Ken Kranzberg and the International Photography Hall of Fame, The Dark Room is under the direction of managing partner Chris Hansen, director of theaters and events for the Kranzberg Arts Center.
