"Millions of men have lived to fight, build palaces and boundaries, shape destinies and societies; but the compelling force of all times has been the force of originality and creation profoundly affecting the roots of human spirit."
- Ansel Adams
An Otherwise Empty Room has big news! As an off-shoot to this blog, I have started an on-line gallery also named "An Otherwise Empty Room." In the tradition of some of my favorite photography heroes, Alfred Stieglitz and Aaron Siskind, whose visionary ideas and pursuit for the excellence of photography within the fine arts propelled the craft further than anyone could ever have imagined, the gallery aims to give young up-and-coming artists a place to present their craft, in a traditional and curated format.
The space is a blank slate for artists, with little distractions, if any. It is a big white room, "otherwise empty," ready to be filled with the work of visual craftsmen.
The portfolio of each featured artist will be displayed for two months, and then it will be archived in a second gallery, until such a time as room as needed for other artists' portfolios.
The first featured artist is Winder Holeman, from Chicago, Illinois. His work can be seen here. Please take a moment to view the images.
Thank you, and thank you again for supporting the work of independent artists.
