Yesterday I received an email from Joseph Bellows Gallery announcing their latest exhibition with Bill Arnold. I have no idea how I got to be on their mailing list, but was very excited to be, as it was a pleasure browsing through their amazing artists list.
Arnold says, “I think the job of the artist is to cheer for life in all its parts. Nothing left out. Nothing exalted. No attempt to improve. Only to show something be it tragedy, ecstasy or buffoonery. We are part of a million, million year process and the artist’s job is to celebrate being part of it.” His photographs are imbued with a spirit of observation and discovery and show us beauty in the everyday and mystery in the mundane. I couldn’t download the images, so you will have to use the link.
The exhibition will be on view from September 5th through October 10th, 2009. An opening reception will be held on Saturday, September 5th (5-8 pm).
