“Portraits” featuring work by Keliy Anderson-Staley and Stephen Gaskins 10:00am - 6:00pm | Bailey Contemporary Arts, 41 NE 1st Street

Exhibition Reception: February 2, 2018 – during Old Town Untapped
Other Dates: Curator and Artist Remarks: February 2, 2018 at 6:30pm

Exhibit Time:
during Regular Gallery Hours
Tuesday through Friday: 10am-6pm
Saturday: 10am-4pm
Sundays and Mondays: CLOSED

This is an exhibition that brings together two artists that use portrait photography as their artistic medium: Keliy Anderson-Staley and Stephen Gaskins.

Keliy Anderson-Staley’s [hyphen] Americans is a diverse collection of American faces made across the country. The title of the project refers to the hyphenated character of American identities without labeling anyone’s actual identity. The portraits are all wet-plate collodion tintypes, made using nineteenth-century recipes, period brass lenses, and wooden view cameras. This process was the first widely used to make photographic portraits.

Anderson-Staley work has been featured at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, Morris Museum of Art, California Museum of Photography, Bronx Museum of Art, Akron Art Museum, and Southeast Museum of Photography. Her work is in the collection of the Library of Congress, Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, Portland Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts-Houston.

Stephen Gaskis “Expressions of Color” is a celebration to diversity and individuality. His photographic work features powerful editorial images of self-confident and strong women.
