A Second Talent: Painters and Sculptors Who Are Also Photographers

The range of photographic choices made by the artists in the exhibition underscores the expansive nature of the medium. They are, after all, photographing the same observed world which captured their imagination in painting and sculpture. All of the virtuoso artists in the exhibition have altered the way we see reality and by communicating so lucidly have brough us a little closer to an understanding of the universal. They have presented to us in all of their image-making–photographs, painting, and sculpture–a dazzling variety of ways of seeing and feeling about the world we share.
