Bergamot Station’s receptions Saturday, Oct 13: William Eggleston: NEW DYES at the Rose Gallery and Cira Crowell: IN LIGHT at the Robert Berman Gallery. 


Photography buffs might want to hightail it over to Bergamot Saturday (October 13) for a preview of William Eggleston prints before they head across the sea to their new home at the Tate.

William Eggleston is the photographer credited with making color photography a “legitimate” art medium and for introducing the shot we now find commonplace — frames of the everyday from a different perspective. Ironically, by using a printing process that at the time was reserved for advertising (dye transfer), he ushered in the use of highly saturated color which heightened the intensity of his photos. New Dyes is exactly that, the photos have been printed as dye transfers but are curated from Eggleston’s work before he employed the method. 

For more Eggleston, visit the Gagosian Gallery (Beverly Hills) for 28 brilliantly vibrant large-scale prints from the Los Alamos series. Some images may be familiar, others have not been previously shown. Definitely worth seeing in person. 

While you are at Bergamot, cross the lot for the Robert Berman Gallerys Cira Crowell reception. Crowell deals in light and shadow. Her mediums are drawings, photos and projections, the show includes captures of “light sculptures” engineered by her partner Chas Curtis.

Make it a photo day! (Gallery info below the Eggleston interview clip.)
