“Venice/ Venezia” Part of “Night Lights” at DNJ Gallery

DNJ Gallery‘s new exhibition “Night Lights” features photographic works by local Venice artist Helen K. Garber as well as Ginny Mangrum and Bill Sosin. This exhibition brings together three artists whose practice unfolds in the city streets- under the cover of darkness. Their works capture ‘noir’ nightscapes, private moments, and the magical colors of the city after dark. The opening is Saturday, March 13, 2010 from 6-8 pm.

Helen K. Garber is known for her night urban landscapes taken in cities such as Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Venice, Italy. For “Night Lights,” Garber will exhibit new work from her “Venice/ Venezia” series of diptychs which juxtapose Venice, Italy and Venice Beach, Ca. Her images are exhibited internationally and are in permanent collections of museums, private and corporate collections nationwide.

Ginny Mangrum will exhibit new work from her ongoing series, “Night Moves.” In these photographs, Mangrum stresses the intensity of darkness as she moves throughout the night. She explores interior and exterior spaces, presence and absence of the human subject, and the tension that is created by her voyeuristic observation. Mangrum received her MFA from Mills College in Oakland, CA and is currently an Adjunct Professor at Diablo Valley College in Pleasant Hill, CA. She has exhibited her photography throughout California since 2003.

Bill Sosin’s contribution to “Night Lights” consists of richly colored photographs capturing urban landscapes in the rain. Sosin’s “City Rain” photographs describe the texture, shape, weight, and direction of raindrops at night as well as the twinkling luminescence of the streetlights, fluorescent lights, and storefronts behind the rain. His work has been exhibited widely throughout the Unites States and he has won many awards for his work including the International Lucie Award ‘Official Selection’ in 2009 and the International Color Award from the Photography Masters Cup, among others.
