Event Description

440 Gallery is proud to present Sanctuary, a series of new photographic works by Amy Williams. This solo exhibition marks Williams' sixth and final exhibition at the 440 Gallery, presenting photographs that were shot at the Okefenokee Swamp located in Southeast Georgia. Sanctuary explores abstraction in an ecologically pristine environment where lily pads appear to dance on the surface of swirling dark swamp water. Throughout, the artist shows her continued work in an analog process, shooting with a Holga medium format film camera and hand printing each image in collaboration with master printer, Gunar Roze. Amy Williams studied painting and photography at the University of Texas, Austin. She has been enamored with the photographic medium since she made her first pin-hole camera from an oatmeal box in the 5th grade. She taught herself how to print her own photos in the darkroom at the age of 16 and has never stopped loving the smell of chemistry, and the amber glow of a safelight. Amy Williams has exhibited her work in both New York and Paris and is featured in private collections throughout the United States and Europe. 440 Gallery is located at 440 Sixth Avenue in Park Slope, Brooklyn, between 9th and 10th Streets, and is convenient to the F, G, and R subways. The gallery is open on Thursday and Friday, 4-7pm, and Saturday and Sunday, 11am - 7pm, or by appointment.
