STATES OF MATTER: New Work by Lisa Nebenzahl and Keith Taylor
March 9 @ 5:00 pm - May 23 @ 5:00 pm
Photographers Lisa Nebenzahl and Keith Taylor look at elemental components of the natural landscape, turning their cameras to land, water, and sky. These quiet investigations move in and out of abstraction, using light, scale, and perspective to describe the subtle surfaces of our environment.
Join us for an opening reception on Saturday, March 9, 5-8pm.
The Marsden/Gustafson Gallery is located at FilmNorth, 550 Vandalia Street, Suite 120, St. Paul, MN 55114. The event is free, accessible, and open to the public. The exhibition continues through May 23, 2019. The gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10:30-5:30.
Lisa Nebenzahl is a Minneapolis based photographic artist. Her work explores ideas about fragility and resilience, the passage of time and the function of chance and surprise observing and responding to the natural world. She is a recipient of the 2016 and 2018 Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant and participant of the 2018 Pocoapoco Winter Residency program in Oaxaca, Mexico. Lisa exhibits her work nationally, most recently showing at the Griffin Museum of Photography and A. Smith Gallery. Lisa’s work has been recognized by Rfotofolio and The Hand Magazine. Nebenzahl studied with her mentor, Keith Taylor, to learn the polymergravure and platinum printmaking processes. Lisa holds a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art + Design.
