May 20th is your last chance to see Catskill 360. The amazing 360 degree photographs by Alan Powell. At 1pm, Alan will explain his photographic and video techniques. His presentation will be followed by a tour of the exhibit. This program is free and open to the public.
Alan Powell has worked in electronic arts and media for more than three decades. Starting with single-channel video, installations, artist books and other two-dimensional electronic art. A graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Powell has been involved in artist collectives Electron Movers and Termite TV, integrating digital photography and new media, blending video and photographic practice.
“My visual experience goes beyond a single image. I scan, pan and sample my environment using the electronic tools related to video, sound, photography, and three-dimensional imaging. I rarely create an image based on one object/one moment in time, but arrange images and sounds in a montage or collage,” says Powell. The images step beyond the frame. After being captured with a variety of techniques and technologies, Powell constructs the images to knit the environment into a holistic map or to highlight the conceptual relationships between objects, places and people.
Powell’s work features images created from sites across the region, including the Catskill Center’s Platte Clove Preserve. Recent work has included images captured from around the world, including such famous sites as Walden Pond, Mount Greylock (Berkshires) and more isolated locations like Beqa Island, Fiji.
Catskill 360 will be on display April 1 - May 20 at the Catskill Center’s Erpf Gallery located at 43355 Route 28, Arkville, NY. The Erpf Gallery is open Monday - Friday from 9:30 am - 4:30 pm and Saturday’s 10 am - 2 pm. For more information visit catskillcenter.org/events or call 845.586.2611.
