Gallery Opening and Reception: Stars from the Gutter – Free
May 2 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Photography by Peter Hason
Artist’s Statement: “My photographs are typically taken from low angles so the perspective is that of looking up, which lends an air of reverence and veneration to the subject matter. As Oscar Wilde said, ‘We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.’ My work in this exhibit focuses on the highly organized and intricate parallel and juxtaposing lines that emerge in the cityscape when the chaotic rhythm of city life is momentarily muted.”
As a native New Yorker who spent his youth plugged into the street culture of the ’80s and ’90s, Peter Hason’s photography reflects his life-long personal relationship with the landscape, architecture, and people of the city as he captures the quiet but breathtaking beauty in the ordinary and everyday.
The exhibit will be on view through June 6.
