Tidal Wetlands - Lori Kella | Shaping New Worlds | A National Exhibition of Constructed Photography: Opening Reception: Friday, April 10th, 6:00-9:00pm. 200 Broad Street, Sewickley, PA 15143 Reception held in conjunction with the Sewickley Spring Gallery and Art Walk. Exhibition Dates: April 10th - June 13th, 2015. So often we look at a photograph and assume it to be a record of a time and place of what really happened. We believe that the artist's eye is used to crop and capture the perfect composition of what is in front of them. What happens when what the photographer wants to capture does not actually exist? In this exhibition of constructed photography the artists are looking beyond documentation to create their own imagined realities. By altering and constructing images they are able focus on concept or build their own narrative. Using a variety of techniques including handmade montage and collage, alteration or manipulation of real scenes, darkroom or computer manipulation, and constructed tableaux or dioramas that are then photographed, these artists represent an exciting aspect of contemporary photography. This exhibition is juried by Lori Kella. Lori is an artist living in Cleveland, OH who herself constructs dioramas in her studio that she then photographs. Her work has been exhibited at Gallery Drei, in Dresden, Germany, The Print Center in Philadelphia, The Cleveland Museum of Art, Texas State University, and William Busta Gallery in Cleveland, OH, including solo exhibitions at MOCA Cleveland and the College of Wooster Art Museum. She earned her BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art and her MFA from Cornell University. Lori has received three OAC Individual Fellowships Awards, and recently received a Creative Workforce Fellowship, from the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture & Cuyahoga Arts and Culture. She is a part-time Assistant Professor at Kent State University's School of Art. www.lorikella.com
