Moving Mountains and Range: Of Masters Of Photography
Penelope Umbrico.

March 10 – April 15, 2017
Opens Friday, March 10, 6-8 PM 2017
Free and open to the public
David B. Smith Gallery is pleased to present the photographic works of Penelope Umbrico. Gleaning from the series, Moving Mountains and Range: Of Masters of Photography, this exhibition will draw attention to the ongoing project where Umbrico pays homage to the mountain and the master historical photographers who captured this subject. Using her iPhone and myriad apps and filters, Umbrico reshoots images taken by artists like Edward Weston and Ansel Adams. In doing so, she explores the mutability of both the enduring subject matter and the supposedly long-standing nature of the image itself. Selected public collections include Denver Art Museum, Guggenheim Museum (NY), International Center of Photography (NY), McNay Museum of Art (TX), Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY), Museum of Contemporary Photography (IL), Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (CA), Museum of Modern Art (NY), and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (CA), Los Angeles County Museum of Art (CA), among others. She lives in New York City.

Gallery hours Wednesday-Friday, 12-6pm; Saturday, 12-5pm
