Robin Myers: "Unknown Constellations" | Keliy Anderson-Staley: "On a Wet Bough - Contemporary Tintype Portraits"

Galveston Arts Center is pairing with the Houston Center for Photography to present collections from two distinguished Houston-area photographers.   Robin Myers, a Houston-born artist, uses photography to make connections between our scientific understanding of the world and our human experience of it as expressed in every-day phenomena.  She reveals the stars on a marble surface, the Fibonacci sequence in hands and hair, the miracle of photosynthesis in algae emerging from the deep.  The crux of "Unknown Constellations" rests on photography's ability to mimic a reality that shifts seamlessly between concrete and abstract, between microscopic and cosmic. How we see and look at the world shapes the way we experience it, just as our experiences and emotions shape the way we see it. Myers holds a BFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She is the recipient of the 2014 Houston Center for Photography Fellowship, resulting in a solo exhibition opening in May. Her work has recently been exhibited… Business Name: Galveston Arts Center.
