UNBOUND! Exhibition Opening

Candela Books + Gallery is excited to announce our inaugural summer invitational exhibition, featuring work from over 50 contemporary fine art photographers! Friday June 1, 5-9pm, Candela Gallery will open UnBound!

The UnBound! exhibition and UnBound! gala event will raise proceeds in order to purchase select works from the exhibition. Purchased works will subsequently be featured in Candela’s newly-founded UnBound! Collection. The mission of the UnBound! Collection will be to support photographers through the purchase and collection of original photographic work while also actively pursuing opportunities to donate said work to notable art institutions.

2012’s UnBound! artists are:

Alex Arzt Dick Blau Tami Bone Alison Brady Susan Burnstine Ernie Button Shannon Castleman Tom Chambers Tony Chirinos Caleb Cole Thomas A. Daniel Michael Donnor William Wesley Douglas III Pam Fox Valerie Galloway Tim Gruber Cat Gwynn Lauren Henkin Joshua Hobson Renée Jacobs Courtney Johnson Russell Joslin Daniel Kariko Heidi Kirkpatrick Shane Lavalette Isa Leshko Matt Licari Louviere + Vanessa Noelani Martin Beth Moon Loren Nelson Alex Nyerges Richard McCabe Jennylyn Pawelski Rebecca Pendel Robin Rice Ken Rosenthal Alyssa C.

On July 20th, 7pm-11pm, Candela will host the UnBound! gala event which will include beer & wine, music, southern finger foods, door prizes, raffle, roller derby girls and anything else we come up with by then! Mostly it’s going to be a great summer party in the midst of amazing photography!
