Last March, Rebekah Jacob Gallery called for artists of every ilk to send photos taken with their smart phones (just no porn or food shots, please). The best entries would be featured in a July exhibit entitled “Ways of Seeing: Phoneography.” Images came flooding in—500 of them in the first several weeks alone—and true to what Jacob calls “arguably the most democratic medium of the visual arts,” professional and amateur photographers alike sent them from around the world (including Australia, India, and Europe). Fred Woodward, GQ design director, submitted, and so did notable locals such as John Duckworth, Timothy Pakron, and Marni Rothschild.
What did they snap? Stop into 502 King Street from July 1 to 31 to find out, and meet many of the artists at a July 11 reception from 5:30-8:30 p.m. For details, visit rebekahjacobgallery.com.
