3/28/2002 Photography exhibit slated at Linfield gallery
McMINNVILLE ? Black and white photography by California photographer Howard Steinberg will be the focus of an exhibit at Linfield College.
Steinberg's work will be on display April 10 through May 3 in the Fine Art Gallery of the James F. Miller Fine Arts Center. An opening reception will be held Wednesday, April 10, at 7 p.m. in the gallery. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
Steinberg will display a variety of leaf portraits, many of which are silhouetted against plain backgrounds and lighted from behind to emphasize their complex structures. The leaves are mostly fallen and have taken on a decayed, organic quality, which enhances their character.
Using the silver gelatin process, Steinberg works with varied subject matter, ranging from plant life to crushed car fenders. His work includes material such as corroded metal, eroded landscapes and architectural subjects.
Steinberg has exhibited widely over the past eight years. His work as been shown in over 130 exhibitions throughout the United States, among these 30 one-person shows and 27 group shows. He has received numerous awards and has been favorably reviewed in a number of publications including The New York Times and Newsday.
The Linfield Fine Art Gallery is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Friday. To reach the gallery, from 99W turn on Keck Drive across from Roth's IGA in south McMinnville. Follow the drive to the main parking lot. The art gallery is located on the west end of the parking lot. For more information, call 503-883-2275.
