The Labuda and Pond Exhibition will be on display October 8 – November 16, 2012 in the Parkwood Gallery. The public is invited to join us for an artist’s reception for the exhibition on Friday, November 2 from 6 to 8 pm.
The bodies of work in this exhibition are unique perspectives of time and movement. Both artists explore space that overlaps a moment to convey something deeper than the place itself.
Ben Pond conveys meaning and emotion in his paintings with color, value and expressive drawn strokes in the media of pastel. What looks to be records of swift movements in his drawings are well thought out strokes and planed marks across experiences of various places.
In his photographs, Mitch Labuda uses a variety of angles and planned movements, to illustrate with his camera, similar to a painter with a brush. His photographs share much more with the viewer than just a static snap. I want to engage the viewer and share with them, a scene, a time, a moment that reminds them of something, jogs a memory
The Parkwood Gallery is open Monday thru Friday 8:30 am – 4:30pm and is located at 1838 Parkwood Avenue, Suite 120 off of Monroe Street in Downtown Toledo.
