Addison Woolley – “Something Old, Something New”
Desert Island©Dave Wade. All Rights Reserved
Dave Wade has installed two huge, beautiful prints unframed for you to stick your nose right into, along with a very generous selection of small images simply framed in black. Anyone who knows Dave knows he’s got a good sense of humor and you’ll see that clearly in many of these images. Yes, he enjoyed creating these photographs, there’s no doubt about it. So take advantage of this opportunity to see some skillful objects portraits by an old pro and you’ll also have a good time appreciating his content, composition and lighting choices. Dave’s work is also represented at VoxPhotographs.
The other side of the Addison-Woolley gallery features a very successful body of work by Alan Sockloff who has chosen to render these still lifes entirely via the cyanotype process. With the terrific impact and success of digital darkroom for any artists, it’s interesting to see many also including historic processes in their oeuvre. These floral still lifes are simply lovely, and also are the result of excellent content and composition decisions-making.

“Something Old, Something New” opens Dec. 7 with a reception for the artists and continues through to Dec. 29, 2012.
Speaking of “something new” – I believe change is afoot for this gallery space for 2013, so stay tuned.
