November 2015 Gallery Show
New Gallery Location & Wandering Vietnam
Gravy Studio & Gallery is excited to announce we’re moving to a storefront in Northern Liberties. The new location at 910 N. 2nd Street (directly across the street from North Bowl) doubles our square footage, opens up the possibility for cooperative work environments and studio photography, and provides a more centralized location with better access to public transportation. In addition, we’ve brought in three new partners to help make the gallery and shows better than ever: Ryan Scott, Sarah Puleo, and Harvey Stern. To celebrate, we’ve partnered with Sailor Jerry and Same Same Vietnamese Street Food for our November opening. Additional details will be available on our website and Facebook page.
We’re proud to present the first show in our new space, “Wandering Vietnam,” an intimate collection of portraits of strangers, by Ryan Scott. “Wandering Vietnam” captures the character and beauty of everyday people going about their lives as they really are—working, commuting, and sharing moments with their familiars. Scott says of the photos in this series, “I chose to approach people who had great character and I photographed them in the same setting they were in when I came upon them. I gave them little direction—only to look like they did when I first arrived.” The vibrant Vietnamese urban and countryside landscapes serve as a backdrop for the portraits and display many of the occupations and lifestyles throughout the country. “Wandering Vietnam” opens at Gravy Studio & Gallery on November 6, 2015 at 6:00pm.
First Friday Opening Reception: November 6th, 6-10pm
