“Under the Surface,” a groundbreaking photographic exhibition by well-known rainbow community photographer Myles Gallagher opens April 5, and runs through May 20 in the second-floor art gallery of the Scarab Club.
Gallagher was born in Detroit, and takes his visual and image inspiration from what he likes to call “the school of thought that focuses on seeing the unseen.” a variation on his solo show’s title.
“Photography to be aesthetically pleasing and uniquely creative,” said Gallagher, “should capture the unusual angle or shot perspective, and share the gift of intense inner mood, the unique touch of a moment’s visual edge of what is in essence for me, a small pictorial eternity.”
Gallagher has also exhibited at the Ann Arbor Art Center, the Grosse Ile Historic Society, Ferndale’s Lawrence Street Gallery, Wyandotte’s River’s Edge Gallery, the Down River Council for the Arts, and the Jules Maeght Gallery, San Francisco.
An opening reception at the Scarab Club is scheduled for April 7, from 5-8 p.m. The Scarab Club is located at 217 Farnsworth at John R, directly across from the Detroit Institute of Arts. Call 313-831-1250 for more information or visit http://www.scarabclub.org.
