BRETT WESTON: ABSTRACTIONS
Brett Weston may be said to be the first successful artistic heir in the history of photography. The son of Edward Weston, Brett was taught the basics of photography by his father at the young age of fourteen, and set out on his own from that point on. At sixteen he had his first one-man show, and received international recognition at eighteen when a score of his photographs were displayed in the legendary “Film und Foto” exhibition of 1929 in Stuttgart. By the age of twenty, his photographs were on view in major shows in the US, Europe, and Japan. Since then, Weston’s photographs have been featured in hundreds of exhibitions around the world, and are staples in the collections of leading museums and galleries including the Getty Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Art Institute of Chicago, George Eastman House, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art New York, Whitney Museum of American Art, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Oklahoma City Museum of Art, Amon Carter Museum, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, National Gallery of Art and the Smithsonian American Art Museum among others.

CARA WESTON: The World Around
March 28 – May 26, 2015
Opening with Cara Weston scheduled for March 28th from 4:00 – 6:00pm. Artist’s Statement ~ The World Around: Giving my spirit time to breathe in order to capture the ephemeral richness of light is my meditation practice. Seeing is more than just observation, it is the recognition of each element in a scene for its own purpose; honoring its existence and how it contributes to the greater whole. As a photographer I am constantly drawn to the subtleties of the world around me and how they play against each-other in moments of contrast. I am blessed to have always had photography in my life. By heritage, by inclination and by emotional immersion the images I produce are to satisfy my own need to create and they exist in the hope that others will join me in the journey.
