August Exhibition Famed Photographer David Best Exhibition

Opening Reception August 2, 2015 with the artist 1-4:00pm

 Gallery 1855 Presents the David Best Exhibition
Exhibition Dates August 1, 2015-August 30, 3015

Gallery 1855 (820 Pole Line Road, David, CA 95618) is thrilled to present a retrospective of famed photographer David Best.  A special opening reception will be held Sunday, August 2, 2015 from 1-4:00pm. Light refreshments will be served and  local musician Charles Lang will perform.  David Best's work captures the fringes of our cultural milieu—taking a vicarious peek at bikini contests, rodeos, frog jumps, muscle beach, and other odd, offbeat, strange and wonderfully wacky events as seen by this fine art photographer. In wide format panoramic photographs, Best gives you much more than a slice of life. Instead you are drawn into his rich images and invited to participate in the extraordinary American rituals he documents.   “Photography provides me the opportunity to participate, in my own way, in many activities I would otherwise be too shy to experience. I feel hidden behind my large panorama camera, almost as if I am playing the part of ‘photographer’." The exhibition will run throughout the month of August.   David will be selling and signing copies of his book  "What Would John Muir Say?" at the August 2nd opening reception.  Additional information on the artist and the gallery can be found at https://davisgallery1855.wordpress.com.
