Submerging Artists 2004

Don Burmeister
, Alyson Denny, Marlies Diels, Natacha Diels, Alastair Finlay, Larry Racioppo, Jennette Williams

This June Safe-T-Gallery will be welcoming the warm months of summer with a cooling and refreshing show of water, photography, pottery and sound.

Water runs through all the works in the show, whether physically in the ceramic creations of master-potter Marlies Diels, "cymbalically" in the sound installation of musical innovator Natacha Diels, or metaphorically in the multi-layered, aquarium-like compositions of photographer Alastair Finlay.

The water is hot and steamy in the elegant photographs taken in the bath houses of Hungary and Turkey by Jennette Williams, while the attitude is definitely cool in Don Burmeister's photos of everyday objects submerged in glasses of water. But let's not forget the beach! Water, sand and jellyfish are all the materials needed by photographer Alyson Denny to produce her beautiful, enigmatic abstract color images, while Brooklyn's own Larry Racioppo gets himself into deep water as he lures various Coney Island Mermaids into the surf. In other words, this promises to be one big wet-kiss of a summer show - come on in!
