In A Different Light, a photography exhibit inspired by the visual and symbolic use of light in photography, opens Friday (March 5), with a reception from 7-10pm at Karpeles Manuscript Museum North Hall. Photographers Jill Greenberg and Chelsea Kedron developed the exhibit, curated by Rachel Good, to explore the extreme polarity of the essential role of light in the photographic process. The two photographers ventured out separately to capture their own side of the lighting spectrum in order to reveal their individual perspectives through the comparison of the artwork. Karpeles North Hall, which opened in 2006, is one of 10 privately owned manuscript museums throughout the country. The museums, founded in 1983, are home to the largest privately owned collection of historical, musical, scientific, and literary manuscripts, including such documents as the original draft of The Bill of Rights, and Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. In A Different Light will run March 5 through May 1 and is free to the public. A portion of each mounted print sold will be donated to the Buffalo City Mission.
7 – 10pm. Karpeles Manuscript Museum North Hall, 320 North St. (886-3536)
