Emily Amy Gallery is pleased to present its first-ever exhibition that is strictly photography-focused. Local photographer, Stephanie Dowda, will act as curator for the show choosing works that embody the elusive notion of the sublime. Drawing upon more traditional ideas such as idyllic landscapes as well as more abstract interpretations that include intimate love affairs, Dowda seeks to create a strong body of works that suggest transcendental ideals.

Left of Reality
Montaluce Winery and Le Vigne Restaurant
Featuring work by: Jill Ediger, Richard Ediger

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 9, to Mon, Nov 28 2011

Some of us like to see things like they really are while some are attracted to a more phantasmagorial view. On the other hand, a visage just slightly off kilter, where we’re not sure exactly what we’re seeing, may have a different kind of appeal. With a glass of wine in hand, take a photographic trip that has elements more akin to the Left Bank than the Right Bank.

Jackson Fine Art
Featuring work by: Sally Mann

Exhibition: Fri, Sep 9, to Sat, Oct 29 2011

Jackson Fine Art is thrilled and honored to present Proud Flesh, the latest series of striking photographs by Sally Mann that depicts an intimate and honest study of her husband, Larry Mann. During six years of vulnerable moments, Mann fearlessly depicts nudes of her husband as he struggles with muscular dystrophy.

In 1951 Mann was born in Virginia, where she and her husband currently reside. Known for her American gothic style of photography, Mann’s images are produced as contact prints made from wet-plate collodion negatives with a short exposure time. This process paired with the subject matter gives for a chilling aesthetic outcome. Mann is known for her charged themes of death and sexuality, which she beautifully juxtaposes candidly in this series.

Mann’s career is decorated with numerous awards, including three National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships and a Guggenheim Fellowship. Her photographs are in the permanent collections of major museums and private collections, and noted by Time magazine as “America’s Best Photographer” in 2001. She is included in collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; and The Corcoran Museum of Art, Washington, D.C.
