About

The Robin Rice Gallery proudly announces SUMMERTIME Salon 2019, an annual photography exhibit featuring gallery artists as well as a few newcomers. This year’s opening reception will be held on Wednesday, July 17th from 6 – 8 PM, and the show will be on view until September 22, 2019.

Rice has brought together the works of 58 gallery artists and nearly a hundred photographs for this salon-style exhibition. From floor to ceiling, the walls of the gallery are a mosaic of various sized photographs in sepia, color and black & white, expertly hung to fit together like pieces of a puzzle.  “This is my favorite exhibition even though it takes months to curate and a week to install,” says Rice. “I love the moment when a viewer is first drawn to an image. Sometimes it’s indefinable; a moment when the viewer not only shares but reconnects to an experience remembered.”

Each year, the Summertime Salon matures and Rice’s annual masterpiece is revealed to showcase an exhibition stronger than the year before. Rice has a close relationship with the works of her photographers, and strategically curates the show to best exemplify the artists’ strengths, remaining cohesively linked by Rice’s aesthetic.

This year’s invitational image, Ventre Tortue, Paris, 1986 by Gladys presents the frontal view of a woman’s torso in black and white. A sheer mesh skirt falls at her waist, and above her belly button a tortoise shell covers the rest of her body, like protective armour. The shell occupies the most space in the composition, both horizontally and vertically. Its organic lines and irregular shading contrasts with the woman’s smooth skin and the porous fabric. The photograph plays with shapes, outlines and textures to create a surrealist picture of familiar subjects.
