Irving-Austin Business Offers Photographer’s View Of Our World
Perkolator to exhibit pictures by Photographer Josh Sheldon
Northwest side neighbor, photographer Josh Sheldon will be on hand July 12 to meet fellow art lovers at Perkolator. Part of a six-week showcase of Sheldon’s work, the exhibit is the sixth in an ongoing series of events promoting the work of artists who live in the area. The reception will give patrons a chance to see intriguing images of natural beauty, urban wonder, and the human condition.
Much of Sheldon’s work is done in far away places. Recent assignments have taken him to the mountains of Switzerland, a run with the bulls in Spain, and the streets of Prague and Warsaw.
The images in the show reflect different themes that Sheldon has focused on during his career. He is passionate about our relationship with the natural landscape and, spent a month photographing the splendor of our national parks.
His work with a nonprofit group took him to Zimbabwe for a month, where he helped document the start up of an orphanage, a food program, and an education program. He took the opportunity to photograph the public and private moments in lives of the people he met. A selection of images from this experience reveal the common thread we share in our human experience.
Sheldon sees a connection between the natural grandeur of the mountains that he photographs and the canyons of glass and steel we create in our modern cities. Several photographs in the exhibit explore the relationship we have with the urban landscape.
Sheldon’s enthusiasm for connecting us to the wonder, mystery and singularity of our human experience is an easy match for Perkolator, which has a commitment to community involvement. In addition to offering coffee, baked goods and conversation, the venue strives to be a comfortable spot where the value of art becomes accessible to the community.
The exhibit is a collaboration between Perkolator, and Northwest Arts Connection, (NAC).
