Image by Allyson Ely Exhibited at Decode Gallery

An image by PACC member Allyson ElyInterior, Cement Silo, has been selected for inclusion in the Grayscale Exhibition at the Decode Gallery in Tucson.  From deep blacks to nostalgic grays to brilliant whites, the black & white genre relies on form, lines, and shape to tell the story.  Shades of gray continue to inspire photographic artists; and Decode set out to honor the art in this group exhibition.  Holly Hart, a conceptual fine art photographer and gallery director for Decode, was the juror.  A minimum of 26 images was selected for inclusion in the exhibition.  The exhibition will run from October 14 through November 4; the opening reception will take place on Saturday, October 14, from 5 to 8 pm. 

Interior, Cement Silo is from Allyson’s series, An Uncommon Beauty.  She says:  This is one of the first photographs that I took in the silo.  A single, long fluorescent tube was the only source of light in the vast space.  The discarded equipment, eerie shadows, and silence give this place an otherworldly feel.
