Harrison Council for the Arts presents “Elements: Fire & Ice” photographs by Heidi Fuhrman & Michael Washburn at the Harrison Public Library, 2 Bruce Avenue, Harrison, NY on view January 7 to February 2; meet the artists January 13 from 2 to 4pm.
This exhibit presents a roomful of fire and ice: abstract aerial images of Namibian dunes and close-up images of layered ice – striking contrasts of color, patterns, waves and lines, all formed from sand and water by extreme heat and cold. The collection highlights the special strength of photography to reveal overlooked complexity, geometry, and art in nature.
The photographers, both Westchester residents, have exhibited widely in public spaces, galleries, and private collections in the Greater New York area. Their focus is on creating contemporary portraits of nature.
The exhibit may be viewed Mondays and Wednesdays 9:30am to 9:00pm; Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays 9:30am to 5:30pm and Sundays 1:00 to 5:0 0pm. For info call the Library at 914/835-0324 or see www.harrisonpl.org.
