Gormley Gallery Presents “Fugitive Landscapes” Photography by Geoff Delanoy
January 12, 2012
Gormley Gallery at Notre Dame of Maryland University presents Fugitive Landscapes, an exhibit of the photography of Geoff Delanoy, featuring images from Marin County’s Point Reyes National Seashore.
Made with a modified Holga camera, the black and white photographs contemplate the cumulative impacts of nature and capture the transient elements of the landscape.
“This body of work was inspired by my first experience with the coast of the Pacific Northwest in the late 90s,” said Delanoy. “They interpret the topography and the constant flux of the environment and the impact of the elements upon the landscape. The topography is in a state of constant change whether it is gradual, like erosion, or more fleeting, like a tide pool.”
The exhibit opens February 6 and runs through March 16, 2012. Gormley Gallery hosts an artist’s reception on Saturday, February 11 from 4 to 6 p.m. A gallery talk is scheduled for Wednesday, March 7 from noon to 1 p.m.
Geoff Delanoy is a visual artist whose work includes photography, digital imaging, and video installation. His most recent body of work has been featured in solo exhibitions as part of Photo Fest, hosted by the Arts Council of Greater Kalamazoo, Michigan, and most recently at Montpelier Cultural Arts Center in Laurel, Maryland. He resides in Baltimore where he is an associate professor and chair in the art department at Notre Dame of Maryland University.
Admission to Gormley Gallery is free. Regular gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday (call 410.435.0100 for weekend hours). The gallery is located in Fourier Hall at College of Notre Dame, 4701 North Charles Street in Baltimore.
