First Friday Gallery Walk at C2C Gallery

September 5, 2014
06:00 PM / 08:00 PM
104 Washington Street Grand Haven, MI 49417 616-935-7337

Featured Exhibit: “Italian Light” with Douglas R Gilbert
Music: Violinist Zachary Graft

C2C Gallery is honored to host “Italian Light” with Douglas R Gilbert. Douglas lives here in West Michigan but began his career with “LOOK” Magazine. He began his photographic career there as the second youngest photojournalist in the company’s history. His work is in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Norton Simon Museum of Pasadena, CA and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta. He has exhibited all over the world. Douglas has co-authored three books. He is the author of “Forever Young: Photographs of Bob Dylan” (with text by Dave Marsh).

Douglas’ current work focuses on the qualities of sunlight expressed in the Italian landscape. The light and landscape of Italy heightens this challenge for him and is an irresistible draw for continuing explorations. The physical world is the raw material for Mr. Gilbert’s art. He photographs the environment around him, rather than any construction of his private realities. Douglas’ work will be on display and for sale through the month of September.

C2C Gallery is a Retail art gallery with a working ceramic studio located in downtown Grand Haven, Michigan. We feature more than 35 acclaimed Michigan artisans in ceramics, photography, paintings, glass, hand fabricated silver jewelry, hand painted scarves, wood sculpture, and textiles.
