Views From the Other Side - Alla Podolsky and John Treichler

Please join us for Artists' Gallery's July show:

"Views From the Other Side"
John Treichler and Alla Podolsky

July 8 - July 31, 2011
Opening reception: Saturday, July 9, 2-6 pm
Closing reception: Sunday, July 31, 2-5 pm

In Views From the Other Side, Podolsky and Treichler examine how things can appear so different when seen through new a perspective, whether it's a different viewpoint, angle, reflection, or dimension. The exhibit provides an opportunity for those who see it to experience what happens visually and emotionally when one breaks through the other side.

Podolsky, a painter who favors psychological and narrative themes, credits her inclinations to a childhood spent in Kiev, Ukraine, surrounded by ancient Byzantine iconography. "I consider myself a 'human painter,'" she says. "By that I mean that I paint people in the environments that are inextricably theirs and that bear the stamp of their humanity."

Treichler works in color and black and white photography, and enjoys creating images that stay with the viewer long after they have been seen. "I want people to look at objects and scenes and consider them in a way they had not thought about before," he says.
