It's a fascinating exercise to see how different artists see the same object or space. That's exactly the idea behind a new exhibit opening this week at Image City Photography Gallery (722 University Avenue). "The NOTA Project" is a collaborative effort of five area photographers and photographer-mentor, Bruno Chalifour. After months of studying and critiquing each other's images, Chalifour suggested that they explore and photographically interpret the same geographic area in order to compare and contrast one another's work. The Neighborhood of the Arts became their target.
Featured artists include Gil Maker, Steve Malloy Desormeaux, Don Menges, John Solberg, and George Wallace, with guest artists Jane Hopkins (in the East Gallery), Paul Drushler, Lou Ryen, Hiatt Zhao, and winners from Camera Rochester. Also showing will be the Gallery Partners and Artists-in-Residence.
The show continues through Sunday, November 2. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. A reception will be held Friday, October 10, from 5 to 9 p.m. Admission is free and the space is handicap-accessible.
