CABRILLO GALLERY HOSTS EXHIBIT BY DENNIS HIGH
Aptos, CA— The Cabrillo Gallery presents Dennis High: Unearthed, whichopens with a public reception on Thursday, March 13 from 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. The reception will be followed by a talk with High at 6:00 p.m. in the gallery. The exhibit will run through April 18.
Dennis High is the executive director and curator of the Center for Photographic Arts in Carmel, California, and has curated more than one hundred major exhibitions. Dennis is nationally known as a portfolio reviewer and a professional artist consultant. High is also a prolific artist whose studio is located in Carmel. Unearthed exhibits High’s latest work with mixed media digital photographs and selections from his Vietnam series.
“Unearthed is a body of work that has evolved out of an idea of the past being brought back, into the light of the present, by means of the visual metaphor,” states High of his current work. “I am the last generation of the pre-television era. When comparing the 1950’s to the present, it seemed a simpler time, a time where life moved much slower and one could absorb ones reality at a more fluid pace.”
The Cabrillo College Gallery continues to excel in its programming with exhibitions and lectures by national and international artists. Admission is always free. The Cabrillo Gallery is located below the college library (building 1000) on the Cabrillo College Aptos campus.
