From the Cumberland Gallery Web Site:

ARTIST TALK : Join us Saturday the 25th for an exclusive look at the work of two featured artists in the current exhibition Photography + Iterations. Based in Clarksville, photographer SUSAN BRYANT has long-explored photographic techniques both digital and traditional, while focusing on images related to travel and familiar objects and gestures innate to the human figure. She will discuss her technical process, inspiration, and experiences as a professional in the contemporary world of photography. Susan Bryant recieved her MFA from Indiana State University and has taught as a Professor of Photography for over thirty years at Austin Peay State University (APSU). See below for full resume and CV. GREG SAND, also from Tennessee, focuses his work on “memory, the passage of time, mortality, and the photographer’s role in shaping our experience of loss.” He often envisions and creates curious black & white environments in which figures are strangely missing where shadows appear. Greg will be delving into these elements along with his techniques and inspiration at the ARTIST TALK. A common theme you’ll notice in both Susan and Greg’s photographs is visual absence and its effect on a surrounding. Greg Sand recieved his BFA with honors and a concentration in Photography at APSU, where he learned from Susan Bryant and later assisted her in-studio. He has shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the southeast, including several at Cumberland Gallery. See below for full resume and CV. We look forward to having both of these distinguished artists at the gallery and invite you to come hear more about them and their work. This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
