PHILIPPI, WV – Alderson Broaddus is excited to display a photography show by Associate Professor Gary Schubert from September 12 - September 30 in Daywood Gallery, Burbick Hall, on the College’s campus.

Twenty-Five 13x19” images printed using 9-color Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink on Ultra Premium Presentation Matte Paper. Each Untitled Image is in a Print Edition of 200, $20 each unframed, $50 framed, Signed upon purchase.

Schubert will host an artist’s talk on Wednesday, September 14 at 1pm in Daywood Gallery. This is free and open to the public.

He had this to say about the show, “My artwork is about the world of the mind, the world of science, and of course, the world of art. I work in many different traditional and non-traditional media, often blending the two in new and experimental ways. In Photography this is called by some ‘21st Century Photography.’ I think of it as ‘21st Century Post-Modern Art.’

This work, Amblewood Way, captures the way that I view and respond to the time, space, light, color, feeling, and emotion of a place, Amblewood Way for a time in May of 2011. Rather than recording this with the literal facsimile of straight photography, I have chosen to capture the images with a pinhole lens on a digital camera. This strips away the literal surface reality and shows and makes real the ‘hidden’ reality. My hope is that the engaged viewer will respond to my work by finding in themselves an equivalent feeling to my feeling when I created these images.”

Schubert holds degrees in BA, MS, MFA and is an associate professor of art and computer science.
