New Exhibition on Artsy
MARGARET BOURKE-WHITE// TWENTY PARACHUTES
Wirtz Art’s newest exhibition is up, and features the unpublished works of photographer, Margaret Bourke-White. When she was commissioned to photograph the testing of Irving Parachute Company’s new silk parachute in 1937, Bourke-White instead recorded an emblematic struggle between natural forces and human ingenuity, between our limitations and the devices we create to exceed them.

MELANIE PULLEN // PERFORMANCE AT LA ART SHOW 2017
Melanie Pullen’s work continues to question the effects that violence and mutilation, both real and simulated, have on the viewer in contemporary culture. At this January’s LA Art Show, she partnered with curator Marisa Caichiolo to create Violent Times, an abstract interpretation that explores both the ceremonial and crude facets of violence, inherent in both nature and the human condition.

Peter Mitchell returns to Impressions Gallery for first retrospective
Mitchell’s Second Impression
After garnering much attention at the French Photography festival, Les Recontres d’Arles, Peter Mitchell returns to Impressions Gallery, the host of the first Refutation of the Viking 4 Space Mission exhibition in 1979. The first exhibition of color photographs by a British photographer, the 1979 exhibition considered what Leeds would look like to aliens from Mars. This year, curators Kerry Harker and Anne McNeill have staged Planet Yorkshire, a survey of the past forty years of Mitchell’s work. Grouping Mitchell’s photographs by theme, dilapidation, destruction, and decay run through most of the work.
To read more Planet Yorkshire, and the groupings of Mitchell’s works in the exhibition, visit Impressions Gallery’s site.
Marc Katano's New Work at Stremmel Gallery
Marc Katano: New Work
The Stremmel Gallery in Reno hosted an exhibition of Marc Katano’s new work in September. Recently working on highly absorbent drop cloth, Katano continues to use the acrylic and ink. The larger scale reveals an untethered, robust, and physical expression that requires the use of the whole body, not only the hand and arm. (September 8 – October 1, 2016)

Peter Mitchell at Les Recontres d'Arles Photo Festival
Peter Mitchell’s ‘A New Refutation of the Viking 4 Space Mission’ mixes a few images of Mars (by NASA) with many images of 1970’s urban Yorkshire by Mitchell, but presented as if taken on an alien reconnaissance mission. Mitchell’s work is presented in the Grande Halle, and runs from July 4 – September 25, 2016.
