50 Shades of Grey – The Purity of Black & White
March 15 – April 28, 2018
Reception Saturday, March 17, 1 – 4 p.m.


Photographic works by Mark Hilliard, who says, “The ‘Old Masters of Film’ gave us our beginnings, and our heritage . . . Their techniques and advances are still applicable today! How many of you who practice photography have felt the desire to pick up some film and start shooting again? Or, as an art collector, have you stood before a B&W image and felt its pull, allowing you to see the subject in all its purity? As a lifelong photographer (who has totally embraced the digital world), let me assure you that the thought of again working in film leaves me with a desire, almost lust that just won’t be denied!”

50 Shades of Grey – The Purity of Black & White is Mark’s return after 20 years to film . . . and the fulfillment of his creative soul. When viewing his B&W monochrome images, you cannot but be struck by their clarity and presence. The show runs March 15 through April 28. A reception to meet the artist will be held Saturday, March 17 from 1 to 4 p.m. Please join us to view the exhibition and speak with this very creative photographer.
