Joseloff Gallery

The Joseloff Gallery of the University of Hartford is a small gallery used for a variety of university-related art exhibitions.  The current exhibition is of the art faculty members' new work.

The first photograph shows Bob Calafiore's work.  The title of the group is Glass Arrangements, three digitally manipulated photographs of stacked glass pieces.

The second photograph shows in the foreground Matt Tower's ceramic work, Tea for Two.

It looks like there are some nice works there. It's also nice they let you take pictures. I find that most galleries frown on that.

These are very interesting photos. I'm encouraged to continue experimenting with my manipulations of cactus bloom photos.

Thank you for visiting and for highlighting our spacious 3,500 square-foot gallery of contemporary art located on the campus of the University of Hartford.

Unless prohibited by contract with the artwork lender, photography is always permitted in the gallery and admission is always free. Please visit our website at http://www.joseloffgallery.org for more information.

The beautiful Hartford Art School Faculty Exhibition will be on display through the end of this week, and will be followed by Brayman & Butterly, an exciting exhibition of contemporary ceramics.

Thank you again, we hope you will come back and visit soon.

It is good to see the Joseloff Gallery's gracious note. I am relieved that they are not sending the gendarmes. (They have a pretty good monitoring program, don't they?)

We could all have a spirited discussion about what is OK to photograph and post and what is not. In the case of today's posting, I looked around and didn't see the common signs prohibiting photos and I took the pictures in view of the attendant. And, thinking a bit about artists' rights, I took the first photo on an angle and at a distance, to give the flavor without a direct copying. (Plus, I attributed the works.)

Who knows what is really OK for amateurs like me? I guess I will usually try to operate with a bit of common sense and a willingness to say I am sorry and remove postings that draw someone's ire.

BTW, every exhibition I have seen at this gallery over the years has been good or at least stimulating. And, another photo from this show -- this time of a featured sculpture -- is scheduled for later this week.

I like your slant on this first shot.
