Ron Tarver
Works in Progress
Sept. 16 - Oct. 21
Reception: Sept. 17

Ron Tarver is one of Philadelphia's most recognizable photographers. His work has a distinctive charm that sets it apart. In this exhibition, we get to see a brand new selection of works that directly shows how photography has been a thread that has run through his family history. This exhibition is sure to surprise even those who follow the work of this fine artist. Join us for our Saturday Night Gallery Cocktail Reception on Sept. 17.

"Working with photograms made by my father in the 1940's through the60's I seek to establish a dialogue between he and I by reinterpreting his images, making them relevant to the 21 century. It is said that every time a photograph is made it captures a little death, freezing an instant in time forever. This work is an attempt to resurrect those subjects who fell within the gaze of my father’s camera." - Ron Tarver
