Opening Reception Saturday April 29, 2017 from 5 - 7 pm at Law & Water Gallery in Gloucester's ArtisPhere at Pleasant and Main Streets. The new show is Route 1 to Gloucester with photographers Michael Price and Tricia O'Neill.
For those who've driven U.S. Route 1, you know it's the road where anything goes. But now long familiar landmarks are going, going, gone..Tricia O’Neill tracks the disappearing way- posts and milestones on the strip that runs the eastern seaboard. From a dinosaur sentinel to a giant cactus sprouting far from the desert, the old gives way and the new is revealed. O’Neill does more than capture iconic Route 1 images, she locates the spirit of these timeworn monuments in all their faded glory. See O'Neill's photos at www.lawandwater.com/#/tricia-oneill/
And just as Route 1 recedes in the rearview mirror over the horizon of our perceptions another road takes us to where the land runs out. Magnolia, an outlying parish of Gloucester, has been reincarnating itself from a distant past right up to our present post-factual age. Michael Prince takes us up, up, up to new heights so we can gain the big picture and then down, down, down to the water’s edge to see what the tide’s brought in. His photographs of objects returned to us by the forces of nature provoke new contemplations of our throwaway world. Prince’s high-diving Jump series freezes the mid-flight blink in time of youthful joy. See Prince's photos at www.lawandwater.com/#/michael-prince/
