DESCRIPTION

Urban Sight/Rural View: Documenting a Sense of Place, is an international juried exhibition. David Travis, Chicago Art Institute emeterius, chose 79 photographers from thousands of entries.

When artists think about place, whether it be rural or urban, they often think of it as a point of departure. One path may lead deeper into the site itself and its character, a sense artists want to absorb and express. Another path may lead away, beginning its course from connections that originated there. Perhaps a third is more fantastical, one suggested by the unexpected, yet significant, connections that the imagination creates. All of these ways are journeys and explorations that do not feel complete until they are shared.
