Maggie Taylor & Jerry Uelsmann: Intersections

Please join us this Saturday, May 1, from 6 - 8 p.m. for the opening of Maggie Taylor and Jerry Uelsmann: Intersection. Both artists will be in attendance for the opening, and Maggie will be signing copies of her three most recent books.

Inspired by one another, Jerry Uelsmann and Maggie Taylor's work often intersects in various ways from subject matter to theme to the physical appropriation of negatives. Despite any similarities they may share, their work is completely distinct from each other in the different processes used to achieve their final products.

Over the past forty years Jerry Uelsmann's work has been exhibited in over 100 solo shows throughout the US and abroad. Uelsmann's work combines several negatives to produce one seamless, black and white print, which have often been described as surreal. Uelsmann has been the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship and a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship. He began teaching photography at the University of Florida in Gainesville and became a graduate research professor of art at the University in 1974. Uelsmann is now retired from teaching but is still producing art.

After dedicating over ten years to still life photography, Maggie Taylor began using the computer to create images in 1996. Taylor is a pioneer in digitally created art images and her work is featured in Adobe Photoghop Master Class: Maggie Taylor's Landscape of Dreams, published by Adobe Press in 2005. Her whimsical photographic creations made her the perfect candidate to illustrate Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, published by Modernbook Editions, Palo Alto, 2008. Taylor's work has been exhibited in one-person exhibitions across the US and abroad and is present in numerous public and private collections.

We hope to see you Saturday to experience these works for yourself!
