Places We Find

Reception and Gallery Talk: Saturday, September 29, 4 to 6pm

The Photoworks Gallery is pleased to present Places We Find. This exhibition has photographs by two photographers, Sandy Sugawara and Catiana Garcia Kilroy.

Sandy Sugawara's photographs are framed around objects encountered in everyday life, things like washing machines, electrical cords, office phones, window shades and bus stops. They are the kind of objects that rarely warrant a second glance. Yet when a splash of sunlight or an unexpected spot of color appears, an otherwise mundane object can take on an otherworldly radiance. This is the kind Sugawara seeks to find, intimate scene with a quiet energy, a place where viewers can learn to exhale.

Catiana Garcia Kilroy's photographs are about showing how common places can become a source of surprise and discovery. With this objective, their framing puts together unexpected fragments of place, objects or people. Or scenes in they use scenes in the forefront of the photograph, forcing viewers to slow down the process of seeing and discovery. By making viewers slow down, Kilroy hopes to help them pay more attention to details and unexpected interactions between objects, colors, and shapes.

Journeys: Marketa Jirouskova

November 17, 2018 - December 30, 2018

Location: Park View Gallery

The title "Journeys" refers to Marketa Jirouskova's main source of inspiration: a journey itself as a long, arduous travel in search of nature's highlights, in the footsteps of earlier explorers or following her own paths. The exhibit presents images of exotic birds and iguanas on isolated islands in the Pacific Ocean, penguins and polar bears with iceberg backdrops in Antarctica and the North Pole, and the highest mountains on Earth in the Himalaya. Jirouskova creates a wonderland composed of pristine uninhabited undisturbed places, difficult to leave for its beauty and harmony, where human traces are still non-existent or minimal. Jirouskova traveled to those remote destinations to create us evocative, almost painting-like, intimate portraits of our natural world. She hopes to inspire her public with respect, appreciation and admiration of world's nature worth preserving.
