rhea pappas opening @ perpich

although i’m not familiar with this series in particular, i was lucky enough to run into rhea on the way to get her new book printed.. the book focuses on the “sisters” series and will be living in my home soon..

her images are simple and beautiful – and each of these seemingly “normal” environments/moments that she captures somehow seem to shift and take on an increasingly haunting quality, the closer i look… like i have stumbled in on some intensely personal moment or exchange that i had no right to witness. subtly eerie expressions… great work. the fact that rhea pappas is still a student makes it that much more impressive

If you can’t make this one, there is an opening for her sisters series in mid-december – more on that here soon

what: art opening (black and white photography, winter beauties series)
where: perpich center for arts education, 6125 Olson Memorial Highway
when: thursday dec 4, 2008 6:30-9 PM
website: www.RheaPappas.com
