Mark Jaremko: Nightscapes Opening and Exhibition

John Cleary Gallery will open our newest exhibition, Mark Jaremko: Nightscapes, this Saturday, October 24, with a reception for the artist from 6 - 8 p.m. The show will continue through November 28 and will represent the first show of Mr. Jaremko, an artist we found at Fotofest 2008, in Houston.

Jaremko says of his work: "I photograph at night. For the past four years my focus has been on capturing landscapes over water, photographed during a full moon, all taken with very long exposures. I am fascinated with the horizon, with the lights and the structures that we build there. These photographs document the discoveries I have made along the way."

We hope to see you Saturday to welcome Mark Jaremko to Houston and view his beautiful images. For a preview of the exhibition, please click here.

Changing Shows, Passings, and Artists

Saturday, October 17 is the last day to see the amazing Introducing: Josef Hoflehner show. If you're not able to see the pieces in person, be sure to check out the website.

October has seen the passing of photography great Irving Penn), and Warhol Factory staple Nat Finkelstein. In happier news, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Boyle and Smith who created the first charged-couple device (CCD) which paved the way for digital camera technology.

Two of our artists have recently been in the news. Chip Forelli's photographs have been chosen by Mac as desktop image choices for their Snow Leopord OS X and Susan Burnstine's work is featured in a 7 page spread in the fall issue of Artworks Magazine. Congratulations, Chip and Susan!

Our next opening will be Saturday, October 24, from 6-8 p.m. The exhibition is entitled Mark Jaremko: Nightscapes, and the artist will be in attendance. You can see Jaremko's work here, and we hope to see you next Saturday!
