The Ohio Arts Council's Riffe Gallery Presents Photography's Back to the Future
by Kaitlin Armocida

The Ohio Arts Council's Riffe Gallery will present Photography's Back to the Future from May 2 - July 7, 2013

Curated by Catherine Evans, the William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography at the Columbus Museum of Art, Photography's Back to the Future showcases 10 contemporary artists who illustrate the variety and complexity of the medium by using everything from the earliest photographic processes to the latest digital technologies.

In this unprecedented era of smart phone technology, which makes taking pictures more accessible than ever, the artists in Photography's Back to the Future contemplate the medium's history and reassert photography's role in both contemporary culture and the artistic realm.

Artists in the show include: Amanda H. Cook, Columbus; Dennison W. Griffith, Columbus; Lori Kella, Cleveland; Tracy Longley-Cook, Dayton; Rachel Girard Reisert, Cincinnati; Francis Schanberger, Dayton; Jordan Tate, Cincinnati; Garie Waltzer, Cleveland Heights; Janelle Young, Dayton; and Christine Zuercher, Dayton.

Join the Riffe Gallery for the free opening reception of Photography's Back to the Future on Thursday, May 2, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Donated food and drink will be available.

On Friday, May 3, curator Catherine Evans will lead a free tour of the exhibition from noon to 1 p.m.

On Thursday, June 13 from 5:30 to 7 p.m., poetry readings by Rose M. Smith, a three-time member of Ohios National Poetry Slam team, followed by Open Mic. Register online May 8 through June 10.
