|'Oooh Isnt It Pretty' at Yummy in Seaside|
|Seaside - Gearhart|
The Gallery @ Yummy wine bar & bistro is proud to premier 'Oooh Isnt It Pretty' a collection of new work by Don Frank.
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 1st, 2010 6-10pm
Professional photographer Don Frank, began photographing a collection of new and unique imagery found in Seaside Oregon. The process began in the Fall of 2009 and continued through the Spring of 2010, resulting in a thought provoking exhibit he has titled, 'Oooh Isnt It Pretty,' presented at The Gallery at Yummy wine bar & bistro.
This exhibition presents photographs documenting Seaside in a panorama of images showcasing the exotic and fantastical, as well as the dark and longing visuals found within the coastal town. The images created by Don Frank display the tension created by the two opposing sides found in every story, the overall theme of 'Oooh Isnt It Pretty.
"Seaside is one of the most beautiful places in Oregon," says the artist. This is clearly the basis for The Little Waves series presenting the grand seascapes and minutiae of color found in Seaside. "On the other side of the spectrum," the artist continues, "There's also a tension between the beautiful and profane at this beach." An idea clearly conveyed in the Didactic series, which points its finger with a pair of images framing the beauty of the area and the negative influences our presence has on its existence.
"It is my hope 'Oooh Isnt It Pretty' makes an impact on those who view it, conveying a calmness in heart and inspiring a call to action."
Join us at Yummy wine bar & bistro for the opening reception of 'Oooh Isnt It Pretty' on Thursday July 1st, 2010 from 6-10pm to view the new photographic collection created by Don Frank and meet the artists. 'Oooh Isnt It Pretty' runs from July 1, 2010 - October 6, 2010.
