Different Eyes: Opening Reception
September 19, 2014 @ 5:00 am - 7:00 pm
Long-time Durango residents Susan and Jeff Wise are joining with Open Shutter Gallery owner and photographer Margy Dudley to present their first joint exhibit. While Susan’s richly colored paintings are primarily abstract, they contain visual references to familiar objects, scenes and souls. They are a catalyst and stimulant for the imagination. Jeff’s sculptures show a jeweler’s attention to grace, form and elegant construction. They frequently incorporate aspects of balance and motion which gives them a sense of metamorphosis. They also have a ceremonial and mystic aspect which suggests they have a forgotten unknown purpose. Dudley’s experience as curator of regional and international photography exhibits in her gallery as well as her varied travels, gives her a diverse perspective from which to photograph Jeff’s landscaping sculpture, bringing a unique viewpoint to the work.
