I will be displaying some photos from Arkansas and Costa Rica (and maybe even a few from India/Nepal) in a solo exhibition at the Julie Wait Designs Gallery in downtown Rogers, AR, from January 6 to February 19. There will be a reception on January 15 from 6-8 p.m., and I hope to see all of you there! This is my first true solo exhibition, so it would be great to see a good turnout. There will be delicioushors d’ oeuvres made by the upcoming-chef-extraordinaire Rachel Moore, and the prints will be big and cheap. That’s right. If you want a good print for your wall, now is the time–they might not ever be this cheap again.
Here’s the blurb from the Facebook event:
Julie Wait Designs Gallery in association with Poor Richard’s Art featuresPhotography by Stephen Ironside January 6th-February 19th.An artist reception will be held Friday January 15th, 6-8 p.m.
(alternate weather date January 22nd, if no school in Rogers)The gallery is located at 318 South First in Rogers, Ar and is open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday – Friday and Saturday by appointment. 479-631-8706“From the Temperate to the Tropics: A Photographic Peregrination”A Fayetteville native and senior at the University of Arkansas, Stephen Ironside is not currently pursuing a degree in art, though an MFA in photography is beckoning him for graduate school. In any case, he will be pursuing photography professionally with an emphasis on the conservation of foreign cultures and of the natural world. He hopes to use his current biological and anthropological academic backgrounds as starting points, and photography as the medium, to share information about the countless inhabitants of our planet with as many people as possible and to use photography as a means of revitalizing their love for the natural world and respect for cultures besides their own. His photographs strive to be the opposite of abstract; in theory, all who view them will be able to identify, understand, and connect with the subject matter and will want to learn more about what they are seeing. This exhibition takes you on a photographic journey from Arkansas to the jungles of Costa Rica–some of the most natural places in the world.
