IN THE MAIN AND CENTER GALLERIES

Gazing Into Space - New photographs by Mary Lang

For more than forty years, Mary Lang has adhered to the discipline of straight photography. Her work has always been about looking and seeing, using the frame to capture the moment of perception. As a photographer, Lang is rooted in the phenomenal world, yet her subject matter is not so much the physical places in front of her lens, but rather the emotional and elemental quality of the space itself. Sometimes gazing into space can feel like falling off a cliff, losing your sense of self, losing solid ground.

Lang's work has long been informed by her Buddhist meditation practice. The space in these photographs, from the Urubamba River Valley in Peru to tidal flats in the Bay of Fundy, from a hillside in Vermont to a model railroad landscape in San Diego, CA, is not only vast geographic space of mountaintops or shorelines; it is the intimate space gazing out a car window or the atmospheric space of early morning fog. It is the contemplative inner space of a quiet ordinary moment, the space between the in breath and the out breath, a gap full of loneliness and possibility.

IN THE MEMBERS' GALLERY

Mira Cantor en plein aire drawings, 2013

Drawing is crucial to my practice. It is the way I start thinking about ideas. After my last exhibition of paintings at the Kingston Gallery called "meltwater," I thought it would be valuable to show my thinking process before those paintings were made. These drawings were done directly from my physical presence in the landscape in Banff, Canada; en plein aire. I would walk or drive to different locations and make notations. There are about 100 sketches (6 x 8 inches) in this group. Thirty will be shown.
