Liquid Light Public Opening

August 22, 2015 @ 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM

"Constellations of Water" by Ernest H. Brooks II

Liquid Light: Photography Beneath the Sea

Exhibition Public Opening

Join us for the public opening of Liquid Light: Photography Beneath the Sea on Saturday, August 22. Featured artists Chuck Davis and Robin Robinson will be hosting Gallery Talks at 10:30 AM and 2:30 PM. Talks are free with Museum admission.

There is a world beneath the sea unlike anything seen on land. Liquid Light explores these ocean depths with black-and-white photography, capturing a quality of light that exists only underwater. Many of the pieces in the exhibition bring an awareness to the fragile oceans, and the need to protect and preserve them. Visitors will be amazed by the wildlife portrayed in its natural habitat. Manta rays glide through the water, coordinated schools of akule create amazing shapes, and rockfish swim confidently under the waves. These images were selected by Jeanne Falk Adams, daughter-in-law of noted photographer Ansel Adams and former President and CEO of The Ansel Adams Gallery. The collection draws attention to the photographers capturing a stunningly beautiful and mysterious underwater world. The exhibition will be open through January 31, 2016 in the John J. McMullen Maritime Arts Gallery.
