The PhotoZone Gallery presents a group exhibition by the PhotoZone membership as well as photographs by our two featured artists Susie Morrill and Glen Newland.
The exhibition takes place at The Midtown, 1600 Pearl St, Eugene, OR 97401. The show is available for viewing 8am to 6pm 7 days a week. The Midtown is a beautiful new venue for art exhibitions and is the home of the Eugene Ballet and many other arts organizations.
Our featured artists both explore images with important messages of social commentary.
Susie Morrill’s body of work is from her trips to Cuba that began in 2011. She says, “My work explores the humanity of the people and their human condition. The upper- and middle-class citizens manage in a troubled economic system, but the lower income people really struggle. The American embargo seriously impacts the Cuban people. Despite their lack of resources, the Cuban people remain a proud, hardworking, and happy people. To know Cuba is to love it.”
Glenn Newland is our other featured artist. About his series “Invisible,” Newland says “The most compelling subject (from my perspective) is my fellow humans, as they portray themselves to, and interact with, the world around them. Sometimes the people I photograph have been marginalized by the people around them and/or the culture and the society of which they are an integral part. Ideally my images respect the dignity of the subject while revealing some truth.”
The PhotoZone Gallery is a diverse group of individuals dedicated to exhibiting fine art photography. This includes traditional and alternative processes that run the gamut of subject matter from experimental, to straight landscape imagery, to documentary photography.
