ArtBeat: Keith Carter @ Galerie BMG & the Center for Photography at Woodstock, 6/18-19/10
One of our very favorite art exhibitions of last year was the stunning display of work by photographer Keith Carter, “Poet of the Ordinary: Photographs by Keith Carter,” which was on exhibit last fall and winter at the College of St. Rose’s Massry Gallery.
Carter’s current area exhibition, “By Twilight,” is a haunting and intensely intimate series of photographs of the photographer’s mother as she descends into Alzheimer’s disease. The exhibit is currently on view at Galerie BMG in Woodstock, and Carter will be on hand for a reception at the gallery from 7-8pm Friday. The exhibition will remain on view through Monday, June 28.
This weekend, Carter will also be conducting a workshop at the Center for Photography at Woodstock. And as part of that workshop, he’ll be giving a lecture, “Re-inventing the World,” at 8pm Saturday the center.
The lecture is open to the public. Admission is $7; seniors and students $5.
