Ann Tower Gallery Presents New Photography Collection at Gallery Hop

gallery picLEXINGTON, Ky. (4/3/13) – The Ann Tower Gallery is pleased to present fifteen new large-scaled photographs in "Nori Hall: Waterscapes." The exhibition will open with a Gallery Hop reception on Friday, April 19 from 5 to 8 pm. Hall creates sumptuous and mysterious images by shooting film that she prints and manipulates digitally, suppressing detail and using blended, understated and somewhat unrealistic color. The addition of stylized color is a change from her previously sepia-dominated palette. The results are wonderfully dreamy and moody interpretations of beautiful watershed settings in the Bluegrass.

For the past decade, Hall has been devoted to landscape photography.  The Waterscape series was inspired and supported by an EcoArt Grant from Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government Department of Environmental Quality. Hall has beautifully fulfilled her aim to depict and promote awareness of local places where water is the main resource, a refuge, and a basic source of our health and overall welfare.

Most recently, Hall has been honored with an Artist Residency at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, at Clermont, Ky. Before becoming a full time photographer, Ms. Hall worked as an architect in New York City and, later, as a project manager for real estate development companies in the San Francisco Bay area. Her education includes an MBA from Stanford University's Graduate School of Business (1981), a Master of Architecture degree from Rice University (1976), a Graduate Diploma from The Architectural Association (1973), and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Smith College (1972) where she majored in economics and fine arts. Throughout all of her professional and domestic phases, she has made art.

On the second floor, the gallery is delighted to present several new paintings by Lisa Williamson, a Kentucky native who returned to her family home in 2007 at Tomahawk, after living, painting, and exhibiting her work for many years on the East coast and maintaining a studio in Washington D.C. Her artwork has been featured in solo and group exhibitions at galleries and museums across the United States, and is included in many public and corporate collections. She received an M.F.A. from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, and she also attended Bennington College in Vermont and the University of Oslo in Norway.

Our second floor gallery will also feature work by artists in the gallery including Patrick Adams, Minnie Adkins, Gary Bower, Cole Carothers, Nancy Fletcher Cassell, Stacey R. Chinn, Carolyn Courtney, Gary Drake, Joseph Fitzpatrick, Robert James Foose, Evan Fugazzi, Gordon Gildersleeve, Ulrike Hahn, Georgia Henkel, Carolyn Young Hisel, Judith Pointer Jia, Howerton Leightty, Dal Macon, Guy Mendes, Lonnie and Twyla Money, Anna Marie Pavlik, Mary Rezny, Renee Robbins, Juan Rojo, George Schmidt, Chris Segre-Lewis, James Shambhu, Valerie Shesko, Dollie and Guy Skaggs, Karen Spears, Chad Sines, Lina Tharsing, Robert Tharsing, Mary Tortorici, Ann Tower, Travis Townsend, Sharon Weis, Judy Wells, and Daniel Werner.
