Lanesville exhibit spotlights photo projects

A show spotlighting the art of black and white photography is on exhibit at the Flatrocks Gallery in Lanesville, featuring the work of three local artists.

The exhibit and works of Anne Rearick, Lynn Swigart and Brooks Gibson is designed to take the viewer on a journey to the hills of Basque country to the Midwestern farmlands to a neighborhood patch of trees.

There is a free public artist talk on Saturday at 4 p.m. at which visitors are welcome to chat with the photographers.

“The collection of hand crafted silver gelatin prints spans three different generations of photographers, demonstrating years of refinement in both the art of image making and the craft of the traditional black and white process,” a prepared statement about the exhibit notes.

This is the first Gloucester show for Rearick, an award-winning documentary photographer who has a close connection to the Basque country and culture. Her ongoing work documents a culture and community over a span of 20 years.

Swigart exhibits a collection deconstructing the shapes and textures of modern technology in Midwestern farming communities.

Gibson’s work is described as having “a mood-inducing effect,” taking the viewer into a carefully crafted dreamlike world, created by use of narrow depths of field and compressed tonal range.

The show runs through April 14. The gallery is at 77 Langsford St. in Gloucester.

For more information, call 978-879-4683.
