A new art exhibit opens this weekend at Stacya Silverman Art & Beauty. Perspective Then and Now: The Fine Art Photography of Art Grice runs from this Sunday, July 13th through September 7th, and the gallery is holding an opening reception this Sunday from 1pm to 4pm.
Art Grice is an architectural and fine arts photographer based on Bainbridge Island. In his early years, Grice focused on illustration and fine art photography. Photography was the real draw though; he opened a gallery in Vancouver, BC, and taught photography classes and workshops at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver School of Art, and the NW College of Art.
Grice has received a grant from the Canada Council for the Arts for 3-D photography and his work has been published in both books and magazines worldwide.
In 2003, Grice founded Arts Studio Gallery with the goal of showing Northwest artists, sculptors and photographers. This year, the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art hosted a show of his work as well as 26 other artists who had shown their work in his studio.
In his own words, here’s what you can expect in the upcoming show:
“After many years of pleasant distractions I’m rediscovering the photographic world I left behind. Traditional landscape, the senses series and new street images were themes in my older work that I thought I would get back to but I always seem to get drawn into new ideas with only threads of the old work coming through. So, here are a few older prints and maybe a hint of the new.”
