Dreaming of My Future, an image by PACC member Wright Schickli, has been selected for inclusion in the Open Theme Exhibition at the Praxis Gallery and Photographic Arts Center in Minneapolis.
The exhibition features photographic works of all genres and subject matter that represent the artist’s endeavor to reveal through the photographic process a personal declaration of visual significance - be it a celebration of pure aesthetic formalism, of humor or conflict - of fiction or fact - or any other literal or ephemeral lens-based investigation. Carl Corey, awardee of a 2019 Guggenheim Fellowship in Photography, was the juror.
Wright says: I captured this image in June 2020 at dusk on a cloudy day along Matadero Creek in Palo Alto. I saw a young girl looking towards the creek, with her white dress somehow capturing a few rays of the day's last light. The surroundings looked very industrial: polluted, abandoned, and almost surreal with a road disappearing into the creek. I wondered what she was thinking about, and I just sensed that she was dreaming of her future.
The in-gallery exhibition is scheduled to take place November 13 – 27, with the opening reception on November 13. The current location (as of this moment!) of the online exhibition is:
