Pasco-Hernando Community College’s Rao Musunuru, M.D. Art Gallery will be exhibiting works from artist Michael Conway in Beyond the Proof Sheet. An opening reception, sponsored by PHCC Student Activities, will be held on Thursday, August 22, from 5 to 7 p.m. The exhibit runs through September 26, 2013.
Conway is an artist by nature and a photographer by choice. He uses photography as a vehicle to explore the after-effect of an image, once printed. Mixed media materials allow Conway to expand the meaning of an image which opens a whole new world for the viewer to interpret.
“Each image in the exhibition follows a progression from the original photographic image to the finished painting. Whether it’s from a negative on a proof sheet or a thumbnail from a digital collection, it all starts with the frame and a long inquiring gaze,” said Michael Conway, artist.
The Rao Musunuru, M.D. Art Gallery is located in the Alric C.T. Pottberg Library on the West Campus in New Port Richey, 10230 Ridge Road. Art gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Friday. For more information about exhibits at the art gallery, call 727-816-3231.
