Opening Reception: Thursday, September 26 from 6pm to 8pm
King Street Gallery presents Verisimilitude September 16 – October 11, 2019. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, September 26, 2019, 6-8 pm. The event is located at the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation Arts Center. Verisimilitude is the work of four artists Dominic Lippillo, John Morris, Casey McGuire, and Mark Schoon. The artists come together to examine the uneasy truce/dialogue between photography and its appearance of being true or real. With work ranging from antiquated processes to digital imagery, the exhibition allows viewers to explore genres of photography while considering the nature of perception. Admission is free and open to the public.
Dominic Lippillo is an Associate Professor of Photography at the University of Mississippi. In his series Stories We Tell Ourselves he creates digitally constructed images of rural and suburban landscapes combined with figures removed from the context of their original images.
Casey Mcguire and Mark Schoon present The Great Moon Hoax references lunar models and Apollo era images encouraging the viewer to take a closer look at science, the imagery that represents it, and how it impacts popular understanding. Both Schoon and Mcquire are Associate Professors at the University of West Georgia
John Morris contributes to Verisimilitude with the series 32830. The images in this series are photographed entirely in Florida addressing the effect of escapism, artifice and the suspension of disbelief in architecture and constructed landscapes. Over the last decade he has exhibited throughout the US as well as abroad, most recently at the CICA Museum in South Korean.
