Lilies and Lovelies: November Show at Perspective Gallery
October 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
November is anything but gray at Perspective Gallery thanks to a vibrant show featuring the work of member photographers Jeffrie Chirchirillo and Susan Isaacson November 2 – 26.
In his series, The Water Lily Family Photo Album; The Early 2000’s—Volume I, Chirchirillo explores the diversity of water lilies and their close relative, the lotus. Even though these plants are native to hostile aquatic environments, they bring a unique sense of peace, tranquility, enlightenment, and beauty that has enthralled civilizations for thousands of years. Consequently, these flowers are revered and have profound symbolic meanings. Through his photography, Jeffrie surveys the unique qualities of these aquatic plants—their floating leaves and delicate flowers.
Susan Isaacson’s “We Share The Same Breath, is a diptych series Isaacson created when it came time for her daughters to leave home to set out on their own. Susan observes, “It was as if we had traded places; they were looking forward while I was looking back.” Wrestling with the loss of their physical presence, Susan sought solace in cycles of nature and reflected on generations past. She traced memories of her maternal lineage through familial artifacts and handed-down apparel, creating images that represent five generations of women. This project, which Susan says, “is an expression of the invisible bonds that endure,” received an honorable mention in the 19th Annual Julia Margaret Cameron Awards and is a 2023 Critical Mass finalist.
Be sure to visit Perspective to enjoy both artists’ visions. The opening reception is Saturday, November 4th from 5 to 7 p.m. with viewing hours continuing throughout November: Thursday to Saturday from noon to 6 p.m.; Sunday, noon to 5.
If you can’t make it to see the show in person, Jeffrie and Susan will also discuss both bodies of work at a Virtual Artist’s Talk on Thursday, November 16th at 7 p.m. To register, go to https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZYvcO6hpzwvHNHMzwjbRrFOGo90QPZk3mwm
