Numerous art exhibitions, music and educational programs are going on around Huntington this weekend and beyond. Here are a few of the highlights.
What: Holly Gordon: Photo-Liminalism
Where: fotofoto gallery
When: Opens June 27
About: Photographic Transformations by Holly Gordon. Technology is changing photography, as we know it…just as Impressionism changed the way society viewed painting. Holly Gordon, part of this change, calls this new body of work Neo-Photographic-Actualization. The starting point of each image is a photographic file that ranges from past film and digital work to recent digital files. While there is no predetermined plan, her extensive art background guides the intuitive outcome of each creation. The original photograph accompanies each exhibited image.
