Reception: Saturday, October 9th 6-8PM
Featuring: Lynn Geesaman, Blair Seagram, Jonathan Morse
The Tulla Booth Gallery presents "Autumn" a group exhibit featuring the drama and color of fall. The contempory photographer's visions in this exhibit include images of fields, and gardens waning down for the inevitable winter season.
Lynn Geesaman's famous illustrative, impressionist landscapes and gardenscapes have a distinctive shimmering style. The detail in her photographs form the base of the images, but it is the soft unfocused surface that reminds the viewer of Impressionist painting. This photograph was taken in one of the artist's favorite parks, Parc de Sceaux, just south of Paris. Describing it, Geesaman says, it's “the pure geometry of the seventeenth-century French park: a haze of yellow buds softens the ends of the branches, an effect that enhances an otherwise severe object.”
Born in Cleveland in 1938, Geesaman was introduced to photography while studying physics at Wellesley College. An interest in gardens led to research, travel and photography in England, France, Belgium, Italy and Germany. Among the many honors she has received are the Minnesota State Arts Board Fellowship and the Arts Midwest/NEA Regional Visual Arts Fellowship Award and a Jerome Foundation award in 1989. Geesaman's monograph, Poetics of Place, was published by Umbrage Editions in 1998. Her work is represented in the collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Biblioteque National in Paris, and among many private collections.
The Tulla Booth Gallery, founded in 2003, features both vintage and 20th century contemporary photography.
