Press release

City Gallery is presenting Field of Vision, a photography exhibit by Phyllis Crowley from Apr. 2 through Apr. 26, 2009. The Opening Reception is Saturday, April 4, 3—6 pm.

The horizon is our basic orientation in this world. It tells us what is up and what is down. When there is no horizon and only earth, we know that we are focused on the land and there is a feeling of firmness and solidity. When there is no horizon and only sky, we are pointed up into the air, and experience a feeling of lightness, weightlessness, and ascendancy. The placement of the horizon affects our perception and emotions.

These Cape Cod landscapes are part of Crowley's everyday life in the summer. In their simplicity, orientation (up, down, or straight ahead), and rich color, she finds a tranquil response to the daily violence and turmoil that have become part of our everyday lives. One knows where one is, with feet on the ground and head on the shoulders.

The opening reception will be held from 3-6 p.m. on Sat., Apr. 4.
