Show Dates: August 28 – October 16, 2015
Events: Opening Reception: Friday, August 28 at 6:00-800 pm
Louisville, KY. AICH (Asia Institute-Crane House) is pleased to present Canadian photographer Monica Glitz’s Ancient Splendors: Images of Asia, August 24 through October 16, 2015.
Glitz documents the World Heritage sites of Angkor Watt and Mount Huangshan (or Yellow Mountain) in her recent series of work. Through her lens she balances the raw beauty of these famous sites with a contemporary look at the fragile edge in which they contend with contemporary human intervention.
AICH Executive Director Bryan Warren said about the exhibition, “Monica is an emerging photographer whose work is not only beautiful but thought provoking as well. We are pleased to be able to bring her work to Louisville as our contribution to the Louisville Photo Biennial.”
Admission to the exhibition is free and open to the public.
Support for AICH is provided by D. D. Williamson & Company, Brown-Forman Corp., Stites & Harbison, LLC, Louisville Metro Government, and the Kentucky Arts Council.
