Photography Exhibition: The Getty Museum - Jo Ann Callis: Woman Twirling

Jo Ann Callis: Woman TwirlingThe Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California, regularly has extraordinary photographic exhibitions. Jo Ann Callis: Woman Twirling is no exception.

This exhibition will run through August 9, 2009
Since she emerged in the late 1970s as one of the first important practitioners of the "fabricated photographs" movement, Jo Ann Callis (American, born 1940) has made adventurous contributions in the areas of color photography, sculpture, painting, and digital imagery. For her, photography is another studio tool to be used, along with the sets she creates and the models she directs, to render the sensual tones and textures of fabric and food, or to animate clay figures of her own making. The persistent inventiveness of Callis' work has made her a force in Southern California art and in recent photographic practice.
This exhibition covers a wide range of Ms. Callis’ work.

If you’re in the Los Angeles area through early August, I strongly suggest you take in this terrific exhibition.

As I travel, I love seeing the work of other photographers as I hope you do. If you know of a new photographic exhibition which you think the Blog should publicize, please contact me.

I took your advice and went to the Getty today to see the exhibition of Callis' work. It was wonderful. I'm glad you added the weekly exhibition article to your blog a little while back.

Thanks. I hope your readership grows. The Blog is wonderful.

Saw this exhibition yesterday Ned. It was great. Thanks for pointing us to these exhibitions. It's a great service. Hubby Morry and I read your Blog every week. We've just started reading your column at Tripso too.

Keep it up.
