photographs with a common theme, Rice's aesthetic captures the perfect image of
summer. When one thinks of the summertime, a million different smells, sights,
sounds, and memories manifest. The gallery does just that with its annual show,
displaying a diversity of styles, themes, nuances, and artist techniques.
Rice curates 54 artists'
handiwork with sensitivity and honesty. "This is my favorite exhibit even
though it takes months to curate and a week to install. It is my curatorial showcase.
I love the moment when the viewer
is first drawn to an image," says Rice. "Sometimes it's indefinable; a moment
when the viewer not only shares but also reconnects to an experience
This year's invitational
image, Swimmer Cap by Greg Lotus emphasizes viewer eye movement through
the use of hyper-realistic colors in vibrant swim headwear. A beautifully composed image that is
influenced by fashion photography plays with a melodrama belied by the bright,
animated color. Three young women
pose in a retro gym, two of them distant and one up close captivating the
viewer with intense regard that dares you to look further.
Rice's forte is putting
images together eclectic in form and style that all live together like her own
personal collection. Crafted salon
style from floor to ceiling; photographs of various sizes, colors, and shapes
are juxtaposed like a puzzle that uniquely works. Refreshing beach landscapes and nostalgia
recreation exist in an expert balance populating the gallery walls. The
photographs are a feast for the senses, there is something for everyone; they
pull you into an environment, an emotion, a familiar
place. Viewers are invited to step into the diverse sensations that the season
has to offer at Rice's The Summertime Salon 2013.
