On View Friday, October 10, 2014–Sunday, March 29, 2015
From: Burchfield Penney Art Center, October 8, 2015
Photographer and social documentarian Marion Faller (1941-2014) emerged from an academic tradition in photography. Her work began as formal black and white compositions of light and shadow that added to a canonical practice. Later her photography progressed into full color images that capture the hand-crafted art that people make for their homes, lawns, and porches, as well as public displays in shared spaces that reflect our unique culture. This exhibition celebrates the evolution of her work and shares in her appreciation of the cultural diversity of community. Selections from the Burchfield Penney Art Center’s comprehensive collection reflect the compassionate and aesthetic range of Faller’s career. The exhibition will also include some of her collaborative work with Hollis Frampton.
