Photographs by Andrew Zimmermann at the Arts Club of Washington

The Arts Club of Washington Presents:

A new series of photographs by Andrew Zimmermann
“Colorado Summer”

May 5 - 29, 2010
Friday May 7, 6:30 – 9:00 PM

The Arts Club of Washington presents an exhibition of large format, black and white photographs by Arlington, VA based photographer Andrew Zimmermann.

The artist uses an 8 x 10 camera and traditional darkroom processes to reveal the changing forms of light, perception, and landscape. This series of images, which was created in and around Colorado’s Front Range, explores the constant flux of the natural world. Instead of presenting a series of landscapes as a static record of an unchanging place, Zimmermann expresses a vision of nature filled with stark contrasts of illumination and space. These images aspire to achieve in photography something Cezanne accomplished in painting: a disordering of our confidence in the consistency of vision.

Andrew Zimmermann lives and works in Arlington, Virginia. His work has been influenced not only by photographers, but also by old masters such as Titian and Cezanne, and 17th century Chinese ink painters Dong Qichang and Bada Shanren.

The Arts Club of Washington is headquartered in the historic James Monroe House, located at 2017 I (Eye) Street NW, Washington, DC 20006, and is open 10 AM – 5 PM Tuesday through Friday, and 10 AM – 2 PM Saturday. The reception is free and open to all.
