New Midwest Photography presents the work of ten artists who use their cameras to make sense of the people and places that inspire them, blending personal observation and regional knowledge to produce photography that uniquely reflects this place. Curated by Andy Adams of FlakPhoto Projects, it includes work by Clarissa Bonet (Chicago), Jess T. Dugan (St. Louis), Tytia Habing (Watson, IL), Jon Horvath (Milwaukee), Julie Renee Jones (Dayton, OH), Dave Jordano (Chicago), Nathan Pearce (Fairfield, IL), Barry Phipps (Iowa City), Jason Vaughn (Milwaukee), and Lindley Warren (Iowa City). Join us at the opening reception on September 7 to meet Adams and several of the artists.
Following the reception, the Wisconsin Book Festival is hosting exhibiting artist Berry Phillips who will speak about his new book of Iowa photographs. Barry Phipps: Between Gravity and What Cheer kicks off at 7 PM at the Madison Public Library.
MIDWEST ART PARTY, 8:30 PM
Afterward, FlakPhoto and Wisconsin Book Festival are hosting a social hangout for the creative community at the Corral Room. There will be a cash bar, food to order, and plenty of conversation.
