Gebert Contemporary Gallery is featuring the solo exhibition Marks from local photography William LeGoullon making his debut at Gebert Contemporary Gallery. “Marks” showcases two enthralling bodies of work that Gebert Contemporary says, “He challenges the perception of a deserted, unpopulated landscape through his use of symbolism, artifacts, and the documentation of specific narratives paralleling a romanticized persona of the once wild west and that of modern day symmetries in nature and the human experience.” Marks exhibition will be on view through May 7th, 2016. They are located at 7160 E. Main Street, Scottsdale. For more information visit http://gebertartaz.com.
Tilt Gallery is featuring Vanishing Spirits: The Dried Remains of Single Malt Scotch, Photographs by Ernie Button. Button work centers literally around Single Malt Scotch and the residue that is left behind in the glass. “Different color lights have been used to illuminate the bottom of the glass, creating the illusion of landscape, terrestrial or extraterrestrial”, states Tilt Gallery. This photography examines “The alcohol dries and leaves the sediment in various patterns, likesnowflakes in that every time the Scotch dries, the glass yields slightly different patterns and results,” states Button. Vanishing Spirits: The Dried Remains of Single Malt Scotch will be on display until April 30, 2016. Tilt Gallery is located at 7077 East Main Street, Scottsdale.
