PHOTOGRAPHS by MEREDITH HOWE JONES and IZUDIN LELIC

PHOTOGRAMS by ED LOS

February 3-28, 2015

Reception: Saturday, February 7, 2-4 PM

Meredith Howe Jones tries to illuminate, through photography, some of the shape, form, light, and design in the natural world. Many of her images are abstract and semi-abstract; she has to step aside, take time, become slow, and still, engaging in silent study. To create most of the images you see in her current exhibit, Water and Ice, The Seen and Less Seen, she lies or sits at the edge of streams, swamps and seeps, or among trees and in fields. In winter she fights the cold as she squiggles across ice or lies in snow; in summer she fights ticks and mosquitoes. Meredith resides in Pelham.

Izudin Lelic is an amateur photographer from Western Massachusetts. He started with photography as a hobby about 15 years ago, first with film and later completely converting to a digital photography.The exhibition includes landscape photos from New England, from coastal lighthouses and Western Massachusetts waterfalls and covered bridges to colorful autumn foliage.

“I don’t have favorite subject or type of photography and equally enjoy taking landscapes, nature, macro and abstract photos. Some of my photos can be seen online at https://picasaweb.google.com/izudin.lelic or http://www.pentaxphotogallery.com/artists/izudinlelic”.

Ed Los creates his images in the darkroom, without a camera.

“Most of my work is abstract rather than descriptive. I use light directly to compose the image onto photographic paper, rather than printing the shadows and outlines of objects themselves. I am drawn to the photogram by its purity of process — by its direct use of light, paper, and photochemistry.”

Film:  The Race for What’s Left, Tuesday, February 3, 7pm

In preparation for Michael Klare’s visit to the GPL, we will be showing the DVD made from his book.  “The Race for What’s Left offers a clear and troubling overview of the ‘scramble’ for the earth’s dwindling resources. Offering insights into the social, political, economic, and environmental consequences of resource extraction in its current form, this video is an excellent primer for educators, students, and indeed all people concerned with the future of the planet. With riveting clarity, Klare outlines how resource use, especially of fossil fuels, is leading us down an increasingly destructive path, and why the turn toward alternative energy and a different kind of future demands immediate, and perhaps radical, action.”- Dr. Bret Gustafson | Associate Professor of Sociocultural Anthropology at Washington University in St. Louis.  This showing is free and open to the public.
