These photographs take dancers off the stage and put them on the playground of everyday life. The dancers in the photographs are like actors in movies. They are the storytellers. By integrating movement with surroundings, the photographs invite the audience to experience a moment, place, or scene with a sense of drama and humor.

Vanishing Point | Kate Ampersand
Downstairs Gallery

When the Boardman Tree Farm was sold to an agricultural company in 2016, the sale signaled the end of an Vanishing Point by Kate Amersandiconic Eastern Oregon landmark: a man-made poplar forest that ran along a six-mile stretch of I-84. The architecturally unique tree farm is being replaced by a mega-dairy farm and crop fields—a dramatic and permanent change. This collection of photographs presents images created by the artist during visits to the tree farm over several years. These images have captured the forest in different seasons, using three different types of cameras. Rather than tracking the forest’s demise, the artist chose to record its beauty and memory before it disappears forever, memorializing its shapes, colors, and moods for future generations.

This First Tuesday reception is held in honor of the artist(s) exhibiting at the Walters. With thanks to our sponsor, Decadent Creations.
