Gateway to Hell, an image by PACC member Wright Schickli, was selected by the The Chateau Gallery in Louisville, Wright’s home town, for inclusion in its Scapes: Land, City, Hell online-only exhibition. Gateway to Hell received the Director’s Choice Award for the exhibition.
For its Scapes exhibit, the Gallery solicited all forms of landscape imagery, the premise being that, for much of art history, landscapes have offered the ability to view our world from a distance, allowing the elemental to become observable; in contrast, contemporary "scapes" untouched by human hands are all but extinct as we face the effects of the Anthropocene. The Gallery requested that entrants imagine their images examined by future archaeologists--because photographers are the documentarians and keepers of sanity in this world—and convey their view of the land, the city, or perhaps hell.
