As part of a three-city series for Canon’s PIXMA PRO campaign, guests who walk through the exhibits at this will interactively experience a taste, sight, sound or smell trigger, before the image associated with that sense is revealed.
At the heart of the campaign, Canon’s PIXMA PRO Senses is all about bringing the photographers’ moment in a time to life and transporting individuals back to that experience, giving gallery guests the visual sensation exactly as it happened, through the power of print.
“The PIXMA PRO City Senses gallery series was created to highlight how very powerful a printed image can be—how it can evoke emotions and enable the sharing of meaningful experiences,”said Canon U.S.A. president Yuichi Ishizuka in a statement.
There will be a demo station on site, where guests can interact with the Canon PIXMA PRO printers. Canon will also be giving away cameras, printers, concert tickets and more.
Kettle Art Gallery presents “In the Heart: Downtown Photography from around the Globe” by Richard Andrew Sharum. Please join us for the opening reception on Thursday, October 2, 7-10pm. The exhibit runs through Saturday, November 1.
About the exhibit:
Richard Andrew Sharum debuts his compelling series documenting the often obscure landscape of urban spaces around the world and the inhabitants of these areas. Sharum’s images depict the contrast between flesh and architecture, the fragility of life juxtaposed with formidable concrete structures, and the light that both illuminates and deepens the shadows between them.
In recognition of Sharum’s work on the series abroad, he was selected among international applicants for the Magnum Photos (Paris) Masterclass with Jonas Bendiksen during HOST at FOTOGRAFIA EUROPEA 2014 in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and for the Magnum Photos (New York) Masterclass with Moises Saman and Abbas in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Both resulted in public exhibitions of his work in each respective city.
In Summer of 2014, Sharum launched “Observe Dallas”, a public installation project aimed at encouraging observers of anonymously placed photographs within the Downtown area to interact with their surroundings in unique ways.

ALIENTO TEQUILA EXHIBIT OPENING – PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOEL SALCIDO
Exhibition opening September 13
Sam Z Coronado Gallery
From the Photographer: “This photographic series reflects the mythical space where the weight of history and the tyranny of earth transcends into a spirit called tequila. In this landscape of blue agave, I discovered the traditions of culture and religion, both ancient and modern – indigenous and foreign. Still there, in the midst of life, is the everyday toil of man, land and sky, unified in purpose to produce a spirit that is only true to the mythic character of Mexico and its people”.
Exhibit runs through November 29, 2014.
