PLG Arts VP Bob Marvin is hanging a show of his recent black and white landscape photographs tomorrow. The show will run from November 7th through Thursday December 5th, as part of the PLG Arts Tugboat Local Artists series, which he curates. It will be at the Tugboat Tea Company, 546 Flatbush Avenue, between Lincoln Road and Beekman Place.
All of the 16 X 20 prints in this show are being exhibited for the first time and are images Bob has made in the past year in Brooklyn and southern Vermont. As with most of his work they emphasize form and texture in details of the landscape that might otherwise be overlooked. Bob uses traditional analog techniques for his landscape photography: mechanical cameras, mainly a Rolleiflex that has been my companion since my college days, medium format black and white film, and fiber-base silver gelatin photographic paper. He’s printed them all in his own darkroom.
The reception for this show will be on Thursday, November 14th, from 6–9 PM. Please join us, if you can. If you can’t make the reception, or just want a great cup of tea or coffee, Tugboat’s hours are Mon–Fri, 7 am–7 pm and Sat–Sun. 8 am–6 pm.
