JUXTAPOSED: Spring Installation at Kimball Jenkins Satellite Gallery at the GM
imball Jenkins is an arts and cultural center which exists in a unique and amorphous space celebrating multitudinous partners, artists and advocates who actively and historically invest their innovations and resources into the health and cultural exceptionalism of New Hampshire. The Greater Manchester Chamber has partnered with Kimball Jenkins to curate a satellite gallery featuring a myriad of diverse artists, as a step in ensuring a more inclusive and desirable future for New Hampshire. You’ll continue to see rotating art installations in the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Boardroom at the Greater Manchester Chamber, located at 54 Hanover Street, Manchester, over the course of the next year.
Spring Gallery: JUXTAPOSED
The landscape of New Hampshire arts is indeed very diverse, but it takes a bit of excavation in order to dig up unique perspectives. Esmeldy Angeles and Artist X are the featured artists for these next two months. Their work, juxtaposed, illustrates the micro and macro of sentiment projected into photographic documentation; from intimate portraits to vast landscapes of Yellowstone, there is space for the viewer to fall into the worlds these two artists have captured.
Esmeldy Angeles is ‘a photographer whose work celebrates the art of black and white portrait photography. Born in the Dominican Republic, Esmeldy brings a unique perspective to her work, infusing each portrait with a sense of warmth, intimacy, and soulfulness. With a keen eye for composition and a deep understanding of the power of black and white photography, Esmeldy creates images that are both timeless and contemporary, capturing the essence of each subject in a way that is both striking and evocative.’
Artist X prefers to not be mentioned by name. He is an incredibly astute and technical photographer whom I met in Los Angeles and is a native New Hampshirite. Look to Kimball Jenkins’ Nature Conservancy Show in the fall for more of his work!
It is not hard to find artists, change makers, culture keepers who are different from us, but it does take effort to nurture new and different relationships and secure resources which some demographics may not easily have at hand. Kimball Jenkins is pleased to utilize the resources of our partner organization, New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists, in order to ensure that the artists featured have access to printers and mentorship on gallery showing such that there is some effort of skills share therefore ensuring continued participation in the creative economy from a broader spectrum of people. We really love our partnership with The Greater Manchester Chamber in our efforts to create these spaces and look forward to more incredible talent being featured on these walls!
The show will run through April & May with a reception on Thursday, April 13 from 6-8 PM at the Greater Manchester Chamber, 54 Hanover Street, Manchester. Please feel free to drop-by at any point during the reception to view the gallery and meet the artists themselves.
