The Sohns Gallery, located in The Rock & Art Shop at 36 Central Street, presents Constructed Photos by MaryJean Viano Crowe. Much of MJ Vaino Crowes Constructed Photos are influenced by over nine years of teaching in Paris every January during the 1990’s for Rhode Island School of Design.  Scouring ancient collections at the Musée de L’Homme, Louvre and other obscure museums. When asked about her process the artist responds “I cobble together negatives from an array of subjects that I’ve photographed over time; then, scratch into and scotch tape them together.  Printing in sections 24” x 32”, I assemble and overlap sheets to create a large-scale composite, later to be polychromed with photographic toners. Although this work is frequently mistaken for painting, the process is entirely photographic.”
The show runs from May 9th – July 1, 2016 and can be viewed any day between 10am and 6pm in The Rock & Art Shop. An artist’s reception will be held on June 10, at 6:30 with the artist talk at 7:00.
