Wes Disney: A Retrospective at the Firehouse Gallery

July 27–September 8, 2007
Wes Disney came of age artistically during a fertile period in American photography. His approach in the early 1970s was characterized by an exploratory impulse in which the camera was seen as a divining tool for self-discovery as well as a way to explore meaning in the external world. Disney relocated to Vermont from New York City in the early 1970s. His photographic work, inspired by Vermont’s landscape, often incorporated collage and painting on the photographic surface. This retrospective exhibition will include Disney’s black and white photographs, watercolor and ink drawings made later in his life, and documentation of his important public artwork A Wall.

This exhibition is sponsored by Seven Days Newspaper, with additional support from Light-Works, Inc & Frames for You and Mona Lisa Too.
