Arts Council of Princeton presents Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces Exhibition
March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
The Arts Council of Princeton presents Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces, a dual exhibition by photographer Ricardo Barros & sculptor Austin Wright. This installation addresses volume – the space a substance occupies – in various ways through light, shadow, and form.
“You could say we’re focusing on the same subject, but seeing it through different lenses,” says Princeton resident photographer Ricardo Barros.
“Or,” sculptor Autin Wright adds, “We’re both pursuing a sculptural vision. Mine results in a three-dimensional sculpture. Ricardo works with similar forms to produce a two-dimensional photograph.”
Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces will be on view in the Arts Council’s award-winning Taplin Gallery beginning March 23 through May 4.
“We look forward to working again with Ricardo, our friend of many years,” says ACP Artistic Director Maria Evans. “And we’re excited about welcoming Autin to our gallery for the first time.”
An Artist Talk will be held on Saturday, March 23 from 2-3pm, immediately followed by an Opening Reception from 3-5pm. Also on view in the Lower Level Gallery will be Charles David Viera’s WILD: Wildlife Paintings and Drawings.
