The Ann Street Gallery’s new exhibition presents the work of renown photographer Dmitri Kasterine with an Artist Reception on Saturday, August 4, from 6-9 pm. Inside the Ann Street Gallery the People and Places 1955-2011 exhibition opens, along with Kasterine’s not to be missed, outdoor mural size photographic installation Newburgh: Portrait of a City series.
Since the early 1960s, Dmitri Kasterine has photographed some of the most eminent cultural figures of the twentieth century. Featured in the ASG exhibit are studies of Samuel Beckett, Francis Bacon, Stanley Kubrick and David Hockney. Selections of these portraits (also in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery) plus 40 other notables will be on view in the main gallery.
Presently, Kasterine is working on his book Newburgh: Portrait of a City scheduled to be published by Norton in fall with a book signing in the Ann Street Gallery on September 8, 2012.
The Ann Street Gallery is a nonprofit art gallery specializing in contemporary emerging and established artists. The gallery is located at 104 Ann Street in Newburgh, and viewing hours are Wednesday and Thursday 9:00 am-5:00 pm (closed for lunch 1:30-2:30 pm) and Friday and Saturday 11:00 am-5:00 pm.
