An image by PACC member Allyson ElyInterior, Cement Storage Silo, Redwood City, 2022, is included in the current exhibition, Grayscale, at the Decode Gallery in Tucson.  From deep blacks, nostalgic grays, to brilliant whites, the genre relies on form, lines, and shape to tell a story.  As shades of gray continue to inspire photographic artists, Decode honors the art of black and white in this exhibition.  Holly Hart, a fine art photographer and founder/owner of Decode Gallery, was the juror.  The exhibition runs from November 12 through December 3.  The opening reception took place on Saturday, November 12.

Allyson says:  This image was taken inside a working, cement storage silo.  I’m captivated by this quiet world of shadows, dim light, unfamiliar machinery, and discarded equipment.  The juxtaposition of the productive with the abandoned gives this  place an otherworldly feeling.
