Frank Gohlke Exhibition Opens This Weekend!

The walls of the entire first floor of the Addison are now filled with the photographs of Frank Gohlke (b. 1942). This thirty-five year retrospective Accommodating Nature: The Photographs of Frank Gohlke opens this Saturday, April 12th and will be on view through July 13th.

With more than eighty photographs, the exhibition reveals how Gohlke explores a variety of landscapes across America - from urban and suburban, to rural and wild - and the complex relationships people have with those landscapes. Interested in more than just the natural features of a landscape, Gohlke uses his camera to investigate the different ways that people interact with their natural environments – how people change the landscape, but also how nature changes them, shaping how they live and work.

Frank Gohlke and the exhibition curator, John Rohrbach, will be at the Addison for a Gallery Talk and Reception on Sunday, April 20th, 2 pm. This event is free and open to the public. We hope you will join us!
