 Other Places, Other Spaces: The Photography of John Puffer, an  exhibition of 25 images, spans about 40 years of John Puffer’s career, and includes images taken during his many travels to Greece, Italy and Egypt, as well as subjects taken from the American midwest.  Art Space Vincennes cordially invites you to see this gallery’s first show of photography, which will open on November 7 during the first Friday Art Walk  (5 pm – 8 pm).  This month the Art Walk coincides with the downtown merchants’ Christmas Open House; downtown stores will also be open from 5 – 8. 

Puffer’s photography has been recognized by galleries and museums around the country.  Among the aspects of Puffer’s photography that make his works unique are his approach to composition and his method of creating panoramic views by visually stitching images together in photoshop.  He favors urban and rural landscapes that are minimal in nature and often exhibit bilateral symmetry.  The wide-angled views present a curved space that is at once plausible as a record of the actual appearance of the scene, yet also subtly changed in subjective ways that affect content. These manipulations conjure compelling associations with a timeless past. All the images have been reworked and printed on new paper with the latest technology providing beautifully rendered color and texture.  You will find them for sale at a fraction of what they might cost elsewhere.  You may wish to consider these works of art as collector’s items or special holiday gifts.

A book that records the exhibition, with accurate illustrations of all the pieces shown and writings by the artist and others, will also be for sale for $28.oo.

Art Space Vincennes is  also proud to present The Flavors of Alessandria, the culinary art of Barbara Edwards, whose family came from Alessandria, Italy.  She will create a variety of  hors d’ouvres derived from family recipes from the region located in northwest Italy, north of Genoa, which lies on the Italian Riviera.

Weather permitting, Andrew Jendrzejewski will present his latest artwork, a video that will be projected onto the exterior of the gallery building.  If necessary, other arrangements will be made for the viewing.

Work in the gallery’s consignment room will also be for sale, including pieces by Nancy Rice, Bill Leaf, Amy DeLap and Andrew Jendrzejewski.
