The Northville Art House will present the exhibition URBAN LANDSCAPES: Photographs & Paintings of City Architecture & its Environs from October 5 – 30. The exhibition features interpretations of the urban environment through paintings by Dale Alcocer and photographs by Lawrence Hamilton, Bill Schahfer, and J. Gordon Rodwan.
The realistic style paintings of Dale Alcocer reveal contrasting light and shadow that sculpt and create dramatic and interesting focal points. His cityscapes may be bright and bold, or dark and subdued, but all express his interpretation and perception of the complexity, vibrancy, and grittiness of the urban environment.
Photographer Lawrence Hamilton strives to reduce each scene to its simplest form while providing a strong emphasis on the basic aspects of light and shadow. The resulting architectural photographs create a slightly abstracted reality that are not only bold and graphic, but representative of his personal interpretation of the urban landscape.
The photographs of Bill Schahfer depict the uniqueness and personality of the urban setting such as the southern charm of New Orleans streetcars, Chicago’s contrasts of grittiness and quiet residential streets, and the neo-Romanesque architecture of midtown Detroit.
Photographer J. Gordon Rodwan seeks to capture arresting images with unique angles, details, shapes, and shadows. He works in color as well as black and white as both approaches offer distinct characteristics, advantages, and opportunities.
Urban Landscapes runs October 5 – 30 with a reception and gallery talk with the artists to be held Friday, October 8, 5 – 8 pm. Free admission with cash bar. Gallery Hours: Tue – Thu 10 am – 5 pm and Fri – Sat 11 am – 3 pm. Free. Learn more at https://northvillearthouse.org/exhibitions/urbanlandscapes/
