PRESS RELEASE: Suzanne Opton at Photostop Gallery in White River Junction
Suzanne Opton, a 2009 Guggenheim Fellowship recipient, will be exhibiting photographs from her Soldier and Many Wars series at the PHOTOSTOP Gallery in White River Junction, VT from June 3 through July 30, 2011. An opening reception will be held on June 3rd from 5-8 pm and the artist will discuss her work at 5:30 that evening in the gallery. The public is invited to attend.
Opton’s work is in the permanent collections of the Brooklyn Museum, the Cleveland Museum, Fotomuseum Winterthur, the Library of Congress, the Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne; the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Smithsonian, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum, among many others. She has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts. Her widely acclaimed Soldier billboards were presented in eight cities in 2008 - 2010. Opton is on the faculty of the International Center of Photography, New York. Her book “Soldier / Many Wars” will be available from Decode Books in the fall of 2011.
In Suzanne Opton’s exhibit at PHOTOSTOP, selections will be shown from two bodies of work. The Soldier series features close-up portraits of soldiers who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan. Her Many Wars series focuses on veterans who are mostly from our region and who served in WWII, the Cold War, Vietnam, or in Iraq/Afghanistan. Most are seeking treatment for combat trauma that is either very fresh or has haunted them for a lifetime. In addition, several Opton photographs of Vermont residents will be shown in the PHOTOSTOP Corridor Gallery in conjunction with the White River Independent Film Festival’s screening of Last Stand Farmer, on which Opton collaborated.
In tandem with the exhibition at PHOTOSTOP, Opton will be teaching a workshop titled “Playing with the Portrait” on June 4 & 5. Contact the Gallery for more details.
PHOTOSTOP Gallery is located at 85 North Main Street, Suite 150, on the first floor in the TipTop Building, White River Jct., VT. Gallery hours are Weds. through Saturday from noon-6. Other hours are available by appointment. For more information call 802.698.0320 or check the website .
