"Different Perspective"

by

R Dean Barr


 

The Gallery @ Barr Photographics LLC is excited to announce the holiday installment of the Corner Gallery’s 2019 exhibition series with a collection of giclee on canvas photographic works entitled “Different Perspective” by gallery proprietor and photographer R. Dean Barr.

In his artist statement Dean reveals, “This collection of photos contains images captured from a different perspective. The perspective of an image can be influenced by emotions, physical angles or subject matter. This collection presents subject matter that could be considered mundane, in some aspects, but altered, abnormal perspective allows for a new way of seeing subject matter.”

                The Gallery @ Barr Photographics was established in 1986 as a photography studio. In 2001 the photo studio segued into a fine art gallery, containing a custom framing gallery and upscale gift gallery in addition to the photo studio. The gallery operates as a true fine art exhibition gallery hosting six feature arts per year and is the only independently funded gallery in Abingdon. Since inception in 2001, the “Corner Gallery” has hosted more than 100 feature artists, with 30 of these being emerging artists producing their debut exhibit. As gallery proprietor, Dean reveals. “It is part of my mission statement to provide space for emerging artists to have work exhibited in an established venue, providing opportunity for the artist to have work seen and purchased by collectors”.  The framing gallery offers museum quality, archival framing, designed by two designers with combined experience of seventy years. The gift gallery features upscale handcrafted items and represents twenty five, local, regional and national artisans.

Dean further reveals his core artist statement as a photographer, “I capture a moment in time…..an image - never was before, never will be again. A semblance, yes; the exact image never. A floating leaf, the look on a squirrel’s face; sensual ways sun light filters through trees; babble of a brook –sound captured as visual image which reawakens auditory memory; faces long generations lost, seen in smiles, eyes and noses today; sorrow; joy; indifference….. actual windows in time, captured in an instant, preserved for eternity. This is what I do, this is who I am…historian, commentator, observer, photographer.”        

 “Different Perspective” will be celebrated with a gala reception and art talk by R. Dean Barr, to which the public is cordially invited on Friday, 13 December 2019 from 7 - 9:00 PM at The Gallery @ Barr Photographics, 152 E. Main Street, Abingdon, Virginia. “Different Perspective” will hang, and be offered for sale, through 31, January 2020.   The Gallery @ Barr Photographics LLC is housed in the Greenway Trigg Building, located in the heart of Abingdon’s main street historic district.
