Details from the Road: Photographs by Tom Ferris

November 6, 2008 - February 1, 2009

This traveling exhibition was circulated by the Emerson Center for the Arts & Culture, Bozeman.  It consisted of thirty-five color and black-and-white photographs in two series:  Auto Parts and Roadside Attractions. Auto Parts were detailed color images, which consisted of very close views of peeling paint and corrosion patterns on cars in junkyards–arresting abstract imagery with a seductive quality.  Roadside Attractions were scenes most reflecting a spare, dry, barren and windy interpretation of Montana.  This Montana-based artist gave a gallery talk and discussed the use of the pinhole camera.  Circulated under the auspices of MAGDA.
