The Framemaker proudly presents work by artist Greg Sand as part of Clarksville’s First Thursday Art Walk on December 6, 2012. An opening reception will be held from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibit, entitled “Traces,” will remain on display at the Framemaker throughout the month of December during normal business hours (Mon. through Fri. 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.).
Greg Sand received his bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Photography from Austin Peay State University in 2008. In 2009, Sand was selected by critic Catherine Edelman and the Griffin Museum of Photography as one of “the most exciting new artists emerging in the world of photography.”
Traces explores the themes of memory, the passage of time, and the photograph’s role in shaping our experience of loss. This series was created by removing the subjects from found photographs. Like the memories of passed loved ones, the reflections and shadows that remain vary in distortion and degree of clarity. These photographic mementos of the departed are left with only vestiges of the lives they once captured.
The Framemaker is located at the corner of North Second Street and Georgia Avenue, across from The Clarksville Academy.
