LeSo Gallery Presents: Picturing Thailand Closing Reception and Artist Talk
February 21, 2014, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Venue: LeSo Gallery
Address: 1527 Starr Avenue

Event Website: www.LeSoGallery.com

Description: LeSo Gallery, located at 1527 Starr Avenue in Toledo, presents Picturing Thailand an exhibition of photographs by Elliot Charney. Charney, recipient of the 2013 Toledo Museum of Art's Palmer Scholarship, concentrated 2 months of photographic exploration in Thailand capturing images of a foreign people, land, and culture.

Approaching the unfamiliar ways of another culture from the perspective of an unknowing traveler, Charney sought to bring to light the beauty of what Thai people experience as typical and mundane. Everyday Thai landscapes and cultural scenes are transformed into a world of wonder and awe when viewed by an outsider.

Thailand is abundant with beautiful, ancient culture – where the souls of the population feel as old as the brilliant temples that can be found around nearly every corner.

You're invited to view Charney's photographs of Thai landscapes, culture, and temples, and to recognize that the beauty we see there is none other than the beauty we find at home. On the other side of the Earth, the Earth is the same, and the deep seat for the soul of humanity will surely be found wherever we are.

Closing Reception/Artist Talk: Friday, February 21, 2014 from 7– 9pm. Doors open at 7 and the artist talk will begin at 7:30.

Parking is available along Starr Ave. and across the street at the Toledo Sports Center. Please refrain from parking on Valleywood Drive in respect of our neighbors.
