Opening reception for Dance of the Happy Shades by Dennie Eagleson ’71

Sunday, November 18, 2012 - 9:00am
Dennie Eagleson, a fine art and documentary photographer and the creative director of the Herndon Gallery, will have an exhibition at the Glen’ Atrium Gallery from November 14 through January 9, 2013. The exhibition, titled Dance of the Happy Shades, is a series of images created from Polaroid instant film, much of it expired. Natural materials were laid on the surface and exposed as photograms. The resulting images create bursts of color and layered marks from curving stems and veins of leaves. Because of the age of the film, the results are unpredictable, visually unrelated to the subject matter, but create a kind of constellation or “performance—in the frame. The Atrium Gallery is open every day from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and is located in the Glen Helen Building.
