Grosvenor Art Gallery to Exhibit “Midcentury Father” by Artist Justin Baker

SUNY Cobleskill’s Graphic Design program is excited to announce a new exhibition of photographic works by Troy-based artist Justin Baker, collectively titled “Midcentury Father.” The exhibition will be open to the public beginning Friday, Nov. 19, at the College’s Grosvenor Art Gallery, with a special Artist Talk scheduled for noon. The exhibition will be on display through Feb. 27, 2022.

Baker describes his work in this collection as an extensive exploration of the medium. “To me, the photographic medium needs alchemy. The photographic image at one time was more akin to magic than science. The processes I use to create my imagery are typically old film processes that are no longer needed or even film that is greatly expired,” he says.

“Even though the images I make all start as a film-based process, they do become digital images in the end. This process of translation leads to more exploration in the computer. Adding drawing back into the image or reworking a small area, or adding something that was never there to begin with. The camera and the studio wall create the space for the image to be made, but that is only part of the process,” Baker continues.

The Grosvenor Art Gallery is open to the public by appointment and during the hours listed below.  Please note that staffing of the gallery is subject to the academic calendar and will not be open when classes are not in session. All guests are required to wear a face mask and observe social distancing to protect against the spread of COVID-19.
