Christina Seely - The Hour of Land

Assistant Professor of Studio Art Christina Seely has work showcased in an exhibition of photographs in correlation with those curated into Terry Tempest Williams' new book The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America's National Parks that is up at EUQINOM projects in San Francisco.

"Part memoir, part natural history, and part social critique, this book is a literary celebration honoring the centennial of the National Park Service. This is a meditation and a manifesto on why wild lands matter to the soul of America and includes a collection of photographs evoking an emotional landscape in parallel with Tempest William's writings about each national park." (from Euqinom projects Gallery)

A reception that includes a reading by Terry and a panel discussion with Christina and other artists from the book will take place on June 8 from 6-8pm.

Christina Seely is an artist and educator whose photographic practice stretches into the fields of science, design and architecture. Interested in humans’ contemporary relationship to nature and time, Seely’s expedition based work finds its home in the conversation between the photographic image and our contemporary relationship with the natural world.

The exhibition Momentum combines works from Christina Seely’s projects Lux and Markers of Time that address the complexities of our contemporary relationship to the planet.

Artist Emmet Gowin shares stories through photography

Few people have heard of — yet alone seen — water treatment pollution caused by paper mills. Even fewer have seen such damage from the sky and called it art. Yet for world-renowned photographer and current Montgomery Fellow Emmet Gowin, a certain fascination and peculiar sense of beauty comes in the circular blossoms of tropical hues that explode from the seemingly serene water.

Gowin captured the image in “Aeration Pond, Toxic Water Treatment Facility, Pine Bluff, Arkansas” (1989), one of many photographs the artist presented in his Montgomery Lecture on Tuesday. The world-renowned photographer spoke about the progression of his life and career through personal pictures, which dated back to his own undergraduate years at the Richmond Professional Institute (now called Virginia Commonwealth University), before crowds packed into the Hood Museum auditorium.
