4:45 – 5:45pm, ART ANNEX
Todd R. Forsgren uses photography to examine themes of ecology, environmentalism, and perceptions of landscape while striving to strike a balance between art history and natural history. To do so, Forsgren uses a range of photographic approaches, from documentary strategies to more experimental techniques. His work has been shown at numerous venues, including Carroll and Sons, Heiner Contemporary, and Jen Bekman Gallery. He studied biology and visual arts at Bowdoin College and photography at School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and J.E. Purkyně University. He was an artist-in-residence at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, the Artist’s Enclave at I-Park, and Maryland Hall for Creative Arts. Forsgren was also a Fulbright Fellow in Mongolia. He is currently Visiting Assistant Professor of Art this year, teaching courses in photography, digital imaging, and IVT. Included in this exhibition are works from Forsgren’s series Ornithological Photographs, in celebration of the publication of a monograph of the complete portfolio of 57 images by Daylight Books this autumn. Signed copies of Forsgren’s new book will be available at the opening. Work from this and other series can be seen on Todd’s website: http://www.toddforsgren.com
Exhibition runs through November 18, 2015. Open Hours TBA.
