Drive-by Shooting featured at The Open Gallery

The Open Gallery welcomes back crowd favorite Arthur Fields for an exhibition titled “Drive-by Shootings.” Fields conceived this series idea during the lonely hours of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown as a way to stay in touch with those things that bring him joy, of course food, but luckily for us, also photography. The exhibition features a variety of people on their front porches, photographed from a street vantage point, framed by the outlines of their homes, where they were obliged to remain for weeks. The collection has, at one and the same time, a sameness about the small town folks, and yet, upon closer inspection, the portraits reveal a varied and arresting cadre of individuals living together, separately, during a time of great worldwide upheaval.

The exhibition will run from September 2 through October 30, 2022. The First Friday opening reception will be held from 5-8 p.m. on September 2 at 329 Main Street in Vincennes. A closing reception will be help for the artist, who will be here on Friday, October 7 from, 5- 8 p.m.
