San Francisco’s Andrea Schwartz Gallery will be showing new work of Cara Barer in a two-person show running November 17–December 22, 2010. Definitely check it out if you’re in SF — Cara’s archival digital photographs are absolutely stunning (click here for a previous post on her work).
From the press release: “In an age of when the Internet is quickly becoming the primary source of information, Barer’s photographs act as a lament for the passing of an era when books were considered a pathway to knowledge.”
I love Georgia Russell‘s art. The Scottish artist cuts up printed works (books, newspapers, maps, music scores, photos, etc.) to create simply amazing pieces. I find the the new landscape/nature-based pieces particularly striking. If you fall in love with one, check the England & Co. website to see if it’s available for sale.
