Light Work Presents Raymond Meeks’ ‘Where Objects Fall Away’
Light Work will present “Where Objects Fall Away,” an exhibition spanning the career of photographer and book artist Raymond Meeks, from Nov. 3-Dec. 17 in the Kathleen O. Ellis Gallery at Light Work, located at 316 Waverly Ave. Meeks will deliver a gallery talk on Thursday, Nov. 13, at 5 p.m. A reception will be held from 5-7 p.m. on the same evening. All events are free and open to the public.
In the words of artist and publisher Meeks, “I continue to be inspired by collaboration with writers of poetry and short fiction and the merging of visual and word narratives. Recently, I’ve focused my efforts towards making artist books and a collaborative journal, ‘orchard,’ which presents a visual conversation with fellow artists.”
Meeks has collaborated with artists Deborah Luster, Wes Mills and Mark Steinmetz. His books and pictures are housed in numerous public and private collections, including the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; George Eastman House; Corcoran Gallery of Art; and the Howard Stein Collection.
