Event Details

KMR Arts presents Lisa Elmaleh: Between the Divides, with an opening reception for the artist Saturday, August 15th, from 3-6pm.

In Elmaleh’s own words, ” I have sought out working class people and their environs, spent days with ranchers on the southern border of Texas, met an aging cattle farmer and his herd unable to meet the demands of modern industry in Missouri, found a widow at her husband’s grave in a military cemetery in Virginia. I found something poignant: strength and humanity in Middle America. These vignettes of experience are documented in the language of black and white film, photographed with an 8×10 camera. This work, and use of this camera, is not about quick judgment, rather, about slow perceptions.

I delineated an area: the landscape between the Eastern Continental Divide, the center of which is in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, and the Western Great Divide, in the Rocky Mountains. This is the story of Middle America and the places that tell the story of the present, which seems to be a story of resilience in this time.”
