S. Carmody Photography: Firdau, 8 June 2012

Closing Reception: June 8, 6-9PM

This Friday, join us for live music, chocolate raspberries, and the closing reception of the photo exhibit, HumaNature. Enjoy the folk/Americana sounds of a St. Louis favorite- singer/songwriter, Sharon Hall, while contemplating the urban landscapes of the three HumaNature photographers, James Holzer, Michael Rudolf and Sarah Carmody. There will also be a cameo appearance from a young Suzuki violinist.

The exhibit offers a kaleidoscope of perspectives into humankind's footprint on the landscape and considers the human condition, its constructs and its shelf--life. Experiencing each piece amounts to turning a virtual dial that takes us to places that are at once familiar and unexpected.

Holzer offers his large-scale series, "Holy Spaces," which acutely and subtly blurs the line between real and imaginary, milieu and myth, and the hand of man and reach of a higher power.

In Rudolf’s renderings, we encounter icons of urban culture in astonishing color and depth and discover their surreal mystery and anthropomorphic nature.

Carmody’s "Goats and Industrial Waste" series transports us to a post-apocalyptic playground where goats have adopted and adapted to the ruins of civilization. Moving, playful and fascinating, HumaNature brings our world into focus with fresh, arresting clarity.
