Helen Gee took a big risk when she opened the world’s first art gallery for, get this, PHOTOGRAPHY!
That’s right, it wasn’t until 1954, with the opening of Limelight in Greenwich Village, New York that there was a gallery featuring photography as art. She sold Robert Frank and Ansel Adams among numerous other, now, household names.
Inspired by the work of Helen Gee, Jennifer Finley, the curator of ArtistAngle Gallery in downtown Frederick, Maryland approached me with her most recent show idea.
She’s calling it Photographica: The Art of Photography. Her concept is a group show that displays a diverse array of photography processes from 19 of most prolific art photographers in the area.
Photographica will be open to the public at the ArtistAngle Gallery 124 South Carroll St. Frederick, MD 21701 from November 3rd to December 22nd 2018.
Join the artists and have a signature Cafe 11:11 drink at the Opening Reception on Saturday, November 3rd, 5pm-8pm
