It is heartwarming to see that Perspective, a not-for-profit gallery at 1310 1/2 Chicago Ave. that opened in April of 2010, is doing well, organizing new shows monthly. The work of artist couple Faigie and Bob Tanner, both graduates of the Institute of Design in Chicago, will be shown in an exhibit opening on Nov. 3.
In February of this year, says Ms. Tanner, she began a month of exploring street life in the Mexican town of San Miguel Allende, “with camera in hand,” photographing the way individuals and couples revealed their emotional states. The experience reminded her how much we share regardless of where we live.
Bob Tanner “became intrigued with the graffiti” covering the walls of Oaxaca during a visit in 2009 to Mexico and made a return trip this year. Utilizing the images stored in the computer he used Photoshop for editing and manipulating the images, enhancing colors and “painting” with the camera.
Fittingly, the show is called “Impresiones de Mexico.” It will run Nov. 3-27, Thursday-Saturday, 12-6 p.m.; Sundays 12-5 p.m., at Perspective, 1310 1/2 Chicago Ave.
