Welcome back from your summer vacations HYG Blog readers! We have started off the fall season running with Amanda Means: Glass + Light, a fantastic exhibition of Means' photographs. In our back room are two photographs by Dawoud Bey: Buck (Washington, DC), 1989 and Aurora, 1997. We'd love to see you in the gallery to check out the work by these extremely different but seriously talented photographers.
Outside of the gallery, HYG artists are busy all over the country and the world with exhibitions. Locally, Karl Baden has a solo show at the Danforth Museum in Framingham, MA entitled Every Day: A Long Year. The show runs from September 11 to November 6th and features Baden's signature daily self portraits, which are introspective as well as important comments on the history of photography, about which Baden is extremely knowledgeable. The opening reception is on Saturday, September 17th from 6-8 and there is an artist talk on September 25th at 3pm as well. Baden was also chosen by MassArt's Joanne Lukitsh as one of her two underknown/under-respected artist picks on fototazo's f100 list of 100 under appreciated photographers.

Curated by Jeff Perrott, the show includes work by 11 Boston artists whose work is all based in abstraction. There will be a live performance by the Nat Mugavero Quartet at the opening so its sure to be a fun event!
Gary Schneider has a show open now through October 22nd at David Krut Projects in New York. The show, HandPrint Portraits, Johannesburg is the first show that exclusively exhibits the HandPrint portraits that Schneider has been working on for years. This show follows a survey show of Schneider's work that took place at David Krut Projects in Johannesburg this past summer. While in South Africa Schneider set up a studio where he made of 50 HandPrints of artists and other members of the creative community. These HandPrints are what we see in the show.
