Local Event ~ Eric Etheridge Breach of Peace

I have posted a couple of times [1] [2] on the work of Eric Etheridge - a 're-photographic' project called Breach of Peace* in which he matches his current portraits of men and women who were civil rights activists here in the U.S. during the 1960s with mug shots taken of them during their activist youth. I find the project incredibly imaginative and quite powerful. Well, Eric's work is now on exhibit at ArtRage in Syracuse. While that is not exactly local, it is here in Western, New York. You can find the announcement here; the exhibition is up through 27 February and Eric will be at the gallery on the 21st for a talk about the project. I plan to make it over. You should too.
