arts&architecture gallery announces:
Legacy: The Work of Kim Weston for Ottawa’s 2010 Festival X
arts&architecture is pleased to feature the exhibit Legacy: The Work of Kim Weston as its contribution to the Festival X 2010 schedule. As a third-generation member of the hugely influential Weston family of photographers, Kim Weston has exhibited internationally – this exhibit will be his first in Canada. Admission is free.
Based in Carmel, California, Kim Weston is a well-known artist, photographer and teacher. Working primarily with large and medium-format black and white film, he pursues his own photographic language and technical excellence while paying tribute to the legacy of his grandfather, renowned 20th century photographer, Edward Weston, and to his father Cole and his uncle Brett.
The exhibit will include 20 exquisite black and white photographs, many characteristic of his work with the nude. The 11 x 14 silver gelatine prints are mounted and matted to 16 x 20 and will be available for sale at the gallery for the duration of the exhibit. During this time we will also provide special pricing for the framing of purchased works.
Legacy: The Work of Kim Weston will be on display from September 15th – October 3rd. arts&architecture invites the public to view this unique collection of work and to attend any of the events planned to take place at the gallery throughout the exhibition period:
