CRANFORD – From Sept. 16 to Oct. 30, the exhibition, “Roadside”, by Howard Zoubek of Plainfield will be on display in the Tomasulo Gallery in the MacKay Library of the Cranford campus of Union County College. This solo exhibition consists of photographs taken by Zoubek on the side of roads throughout his travels.
In his artist statement, Zoubek explains that the influence for his photographs, “…comes from all the arts, my experiences, and people I’ve met along the way. This exhibit is about the landscape we pass by everyday. Although some images were found in and around preserves, most come from along the side of the road, at the edge of a parking lot or a piece of land waiting to be developed.” His photographs go on to, “…explore the layers of opposing lines, color and texture that occur as plants and trees compete within their existing space.” In taking the photos, Zoubek’s goal was to capture the complexity and bring attention to what might be considered common.
To take his photographs, Zoubek used a Wista 4×5 camera or a Canon digital. He completed all the prints of the photographs in his studio using an Epson 4000 printer on Moab Entrada Natural Paper.
The opening reception for “Roadside” will be held on Thursday, Sept. 16, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Tomasulo Gallery, located on the first floor of MacKay Library on the college’s Cranford campus, located at 1033 Springfield Avenue. Gallery hours are from 1 to 4 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. Evening hours are from 6 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday through Thursday. For more information, call 1-908-709-7155.
