Oxidation and The Dance: Two Photographic Essays, an exhibition of photographs by Ray Magnani, will be on view in the Mezzanine Gallery from October 6-27.
Magnani received a 2017 Emerging Fellowship in Photography. In this exhibition, he is showcasing work from two series. In the Oxidation photo essay, Magnani presents images of rust and corrosion. In these photos, he explores the oxidation process as one that creates a deep beauty worthy of attention in spite of any dismay at the deterioration. The Dance is a study in motion that captures the carefree impromptu dancing of two young girls swirling around each other at an art opening.
The Mezzanine Gallery, open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., is located in the Carvel State Office Building, 820 N. French Street, Wilmington.
