BC Space Gallery opens the new exhibition “Eye of the Beholder,” a two person show featuring the extraordinary visioning of Jo Babcock and Bruce Barton.
San Francisco-based photographer Babcock has taken the concept of the camera into a unique realm by creating camera obscuras out of unexpected objects and then using the object to record what the tools themselves might contemplate.
The drawings of Barton are a fitting compliment by employing the ultimate analog camera of the mind’s eye to reflect on the state of the world as he perceives it.
There will be an artists’ reception for “Eye of the Beholder” on the winter solstice, Sunday, Dec. 21, at sunset. Entertainment will be provided by poet John Gardiner and balladeer Mark Turnbull. The event is free to the public, but all are encouraged to bring food and drink to share with fellow celebrants at 235 Forest Ave.
