Story submitted by the foaSOUTH Art Gallery:
The Festival of Arts presents foaSOUTH’s newest show “Three Photographers” featuring Festival of Arts exhibitors Rob Gage, Robert Hansen, and Tom Lamb. The exhibit, on display until March 15, showcases their current work juxtaposed with their photographs from the Festival of Arts Permanent Art collection.
Works being shown include Tom Lamb’s “The Gates- Christo NYC” c. 2007, Rob Gage’s black and white photo “Strongman” c. 2010, and “Ancient Doorway” taken by Robert Hansen in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico c. 1990.
“Presenting these photographers work alongside the Festival’s Permanent Collection pieces is an excellent display of their ongoing expertise in their field,” said exhibit curator Pat Sparkuhl. “This exhibit features a wide range of subjects and photographic styles.”
