The Sordoni Art Gallery at Wilkes University will feature a new exhibition of artist Dan Talley’s work “STATE: Obvious/Not So,” from April 5 to May 29. The exhibition includes Talley’s photography, videos, drawings and installations that incorporate audio and photographic projections which have been exhibited at various galleries, museums and alternative venues.
“A Special Evening with Dan Talley” will be held at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 6. Free and open to the public, attendees can join Talley at the Sordoni Art Gallery for a reception and presentation on his retrospective of artwork. A gallery tour will begin at 5 p.m.
Talley is producing new artwork, much of it realized as photo-based pieces that continue his long-standing interest in Conceptualism and Minimalism. He is Professor Emeritus, Kutztown University of Pennsylvania, where he taught photography, time-based media and professional practices. He has been involved in the arts since 1970, working as gallery director, an arts writer and an artist. Talley co-founded several arts organizations including Art Papers Magazine (Atlanta, Georgia), and Real Art Ways (Hartford, Connecticut).
Early in his career, Talley’s artwork—including photography, videos, drawings and installations that incorporated audio and photographic projections—was exhibited at various galleries, museums and alternative venues. His writings have appeared in a variety of publications including Sculpture Magazine, New Art Examiner, Ceramics Monthly, Art Papers Magazine and in numerous exhibition catalogs and books.
The Sordoni Art Gallery is located at 141 S. Main. St. in Wilkes-Barre and shares space with the Karambelas Media and Communication Center. It is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesdays through Fridays and 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. The gallery follows the operating schedule of Wilkes and is closed on University holidays, breaks or due to inclement weather.
