Capitol Contemporary Gallery is pleased to announce an invitational show of work by guest photographers, Jan Boles and Hal Eastman, for exhibition in July. The opening reception will be Thursday, July 11th from 5-9pm. The show will be open and run from July 1st-30th, 2019. Jan Boles’s silver print montage series depicts landscapes that reveal the artist’s interest in time, history, perspective, and our ideas about the pastoral Western landscape. The pieces were created from 1989 - 1996 (predating digital photography). They include regional sites of interest such as: the Caldwell Depot, crops in Canyon County, the Snake River, and the old Idaho Penitentiary. The montages are created by taking a series of individual photographs shot from the same vantage point facing different directions. Then the photos are hand pieced together and developed into silver prints through a darkroom process. These unique panoramic observations are both a technically inventive photographic process and a remarkable vision of these rural sites. Hal Eastman’s Natural Dance photographs celebrate the power and beauty of female dancers breaking free to intuitively express themselves in arresting natural settings. Their innate dance movement is unconstrained by their technical training or any given choreography, and the movement emanates directly from their hearts and souls. The dreamy and ephemeral images capture a lengthened slice of time, revealing an expanded view of the dancers’ movement.
