Program Type:Arts & Crafts
This group exhibit features photographs by Scott Farrell, Paul Mele, & David Reichhold. Thinking about artistic composition in terms of counterpoint is rather useful. The idea is the same as it is with music, except visual elements substitute for musical notes. In this sense, “visual counterpoint” occurs when one prominent visual element of a composition is set up in contrast or interaction with another. This contrast can be in terms of shape, luminosity, clarity, color, or relative positioning. Counterpoint, in its most visually powerful form, is a way of positioning elements within the image frame, relying on the spatial relationship between visual elements to create compositional structure and interest. The exhibit runs though Dec. 4.
