City Art Gallery in Columbia, SC, will host a collaborative event (Sunday, Sept. 26, 2010, from 2-5pm featuring the sale of photography and collection of food and cash donations for Harvest Hope Food Bank (currently in desperate need of both).
Dr. Fred McElveen is an established Columbia-based physician with a specialty in dermatology, but he is also an award-winning photographer. Though largely self-taught, the artist has studied with Ansel Adams, Cole Weston, Phil Davis, and Alan Ross, among others. Working in black and white, color, and computer-assisted manipulation, McElveen builds upon established practices of American documentary photography and European fine art photography while inventing his own artistic voice.
The City Art sale includes a large variety of McElveen’s images of Columbia such as the Gervais Street Bridge, but his artistic vision transforms these familiar sights into classic and romantic icons of place. The sale will include streetscapes, landscapes, close-ups, and images the photographer captured on his travels. The City Art sale will also feature many computer-enhanced images by the photographer.
McElveen, known well for his work in black & white will have many color pieces also in a vast array of sizes and price points. All attendees will receive a ticket for their Harvest Hope Food Bank Donation that will entitle them to a 10% savings on the photography. In addition, all purchases will be accompanied by a framing coupon for savings of 50% on the molding price.
City Art Gallery is located at 1224 Lincoln St. in the historic Congaree Vista area in Columbia. Gallery hours are Monday-Thursday 10am until 6pm, until 5pm on Fridays and 11am to 3pm.
