PHD Gallery: Saturda, 21 January 2011


Photography by David R. Hanlon
Ceramic Vessels by James Ibur

January 21 - March 3, 20012

Please join us for the opening reception tomorrow Saturday, January 21, 2012, 7:00 to 10:00 p.m.

During two recent summers, photographer David R. Hanlon joined an archaeological team excavating a medieval castle in Skopje, the capital of the Republic of Macedonia. Photographing the ruins and its artifacts piqued his interest in discovering more about the older culture associated with this structure, as well as the contemporary urban spaces of the country. Twenty of his Macedonian photographs, which integrate past and present iconography, are on view at PHD Gallery. Complementing the photographic images are ten Macedonian inspired, ceramic vessels created by James Ibur. Ibur’s work resembles artifacts that might be found in an archeological dig with surfaces and illustrative motifs that are drawn out of natural environments and often reflect specific cultures. The pieces on view meld images of spirals, labyrinths and other bridges with iconic vessel imagery inspired from Mediterranean Amphoras, Middle Eastern minarets and elements of African Architecture.

Noon to 4:00 pm, Thursday - Sunday or by appointment
