Who: Yoram Gelman, a Tarrytown resident, has been making photographs professionally since 2008.  He studied at the Center for Photography in Woodstock and in workshops with Craig Barber and Dan Burkholder.  His photographs have been shown throughout the Hudson Valley including ArtBridge Installation in Kingston, Cunneen-Hacket Center for the Arts in Poughkeepsie, Schoolhouse Theater in Croton Falls, and Coffee Lab Roasters in Tarrytown.

What: Gelman specializes in black and white photographs, reflecting the effects of light on surfaces throughout the day.  These photographs exhibit his expertise in printing as they are high contrast plus full of texture.

 He will also exhibit palladium and wet plate collodion prints.

Often a print has a surprise element in it that one senses after close scrutiny. His dexterity with both simple and complex scenes is evident. He uses available and/or simple artificial light to illuminate both mundane objects and scenes from everyday life. Photographs created during Gelman’s travels bring a fresh look to street photography and landscapes, balanced with what he calls “real abstract” photographs.

 

When: This exhibit is open to the public October 4 – November 23, 2014

Every day 9am – 5pm.  A reception with the artist will be held Sunday October 5, 1:00 — 3:00pm.
