Space: Time and Place


February 5, 2019 - February, 2020




Space: Time and Place


Space: Time and Place is an exhibition of photographs selected from the collection which demonstrate numerous ways in which photographic artists represent space in their imagery and how such compositions influence the viewer to become invested in and moved by the image. The photograph is not only a representation of an occurrence and something present at that time, but an abstraction of the spatial dimension of time and place.


A fully engaged encounter with a photograph suggests that the way it represents how a body exists in space brings about a feeling of one’s own sense of being in the world. With effective imagery, one can become projected into its point of view. And one’s own sense of occupying space allows the imagination to extend beyond the frame. Your perception, through imagination, makes you feel part of a world broader than the depiction. An example of this is how when holding a photograph in the hand there is a tendency to turn it around as if more of its world will be seen on the other side. One’s imagination is more than an idea, it also encompasses feelings fed by a predictive sense of the world as it is known, as the mind encounters a constellation of spatial and time-based evidence in the image. A point of view presents us not only with the subject, but also a configuration of physical relationships and proximities that bring about emotional reactions. Not only does the image stimulate the senses, but it reaches into one’s subconscious sense of place.


The exhibition will include the work of local, regional, and nationally recognized image makers and will be on display from February 19th through September 22, 2019.
