STORM WATCH: A Photographic Journal of Tornado Alley. This exhibition presents 28 original digital photographs, as well as, storm chase videos and slideshows. The show will be on view from January 6 through April 29, 2012, with a special Artist Reception on March 10, from 5 to 8:00 p.m. Curator Bernard Stote manages the four-person show.
“Mark J. Dempsey, Nadia Elfarnawani, William Reid, and Andy Williams have captured dramatic storm landscapes of Tornados, Lightning, Clouds and Sky,” said Stote, a professional New York based artist and arts manager for New World Stages. Continued Stote, “The aim of this exhibition is to present four viewpoints of chase accounts and document the breathtaking severe weather phenomena by photographic journalist.”
The images on exhibit are a digital record from 2008 – 2011, during which the four storm chasers met on their travels with Tempest Tours. The area on tour known as Tornado Alley is a informal and popular media term that refers to where tornadoes are most common in the United States. The area between the Rocky Mountains and Appalachian Mountains is usually associated with this terminology.
