Photographers Rebecca Rose & Virgil Henle Chosen to Exhibit Their Art in a Two-Person Show During the 2015 Louisville Photo Biennial

LOUISVILLE, KY- July 3, 2015
Award winning photographers Rebecca Rose and Virgil C. Henle announced today that they both were chosen for a two-person show at the Krantz Galley located on the Jefferson Community & Technical College campus in Louisville, KY. Rebecca will show her new body of work “Dreaming of a Wasteland” and Virgil will present his new series “Honed”. The Krantz Gallery has selected both photographers work for a two-person show from October 1st – November 7, 2015 as part of the Louisville Photo Biennial. The opening reception will take place on October 5, 2015 from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

Rebecca Rose was born in Louisville. KY and has created her art for more than 5 years. Her series, Dreaming of a Wasteland is about a lifetime of internal suffering and the unexpected negative impact of breaking free of a powerful force. Escaping the darkness, through which a familiarity is born. Indulging in its safety as it breeds hopelessness. It’s a toxic relationship between the mind and the body. Breathing in a new light while the spirit remains on the other side. Time is wasted. Breathing without a soul, trapped in limbo. This is the wasteland.

Virgil C. Henle was also born in Louisville and has worked as an artist for the past 15 years. He also teaches photography at the college level and via workshops. This show will debut Henle’s new wet plate collodian images of rock climbers using a historically correct wooden camera with a vintage brass lens. First created in 1846, collodian was used as a medical dressing. Frederick Scott Archer invented the wet plate photographic process in the 1850’s. It requires that the plate be exposed in the camera while it’s still wet, creating a need to work intentionally.

The Krantz Gallery is located at 1st and Chestnut Street, Louisville, KY, Chestnut Hall, Room 116 in the Jeffersontown Community & Technical College’s downtown campus. They are open Mon-Thu: 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and Fri : 9:00 am – 12:00 noon.
