Grass/Roots: William Sutton & Jon Horvath by hadley hooper

Opening Reception and Artist Talk by William Sutton & Jon Horvath

Friday, March 18, 6 – 8 pm; Talk will begin at 6:15 pm. 

The Colorado Photographic Arts Center is pleased to present “Grass/Roots,” an exhibition featuring the work of Boulder based photographer William Sutton and Milwaukee based photographer Jon Horvath. Exhibition Dates: March 18 – April 28, 2016

Through their images, both artists celebrate the beauty and complexities of the American West, while simultaneously examining their relationship to its changing landscape. In his award winning work, Colorado photographer William Sutton captures the monumental size of the Wyoming grasslands, creating panoramic images that invite the viewer to enjoy the extraordinary beauty of the Great Plains, and to reflect on its value and the importance of conservation. While Sutton’s work takes a direct look at the land, Horvath’s photographs consider how the American West has shaped our cultural identity, focusing his lens on recording the hopes, dreams and aspirations of a rural town in Idaho. The images act as a microcosm, representative of a larger part of the country's experience with its own mythology. Together, both photographers elicit questions about the environment while pointing toward a renewed interest in beauty and connecting with the landscapes we inhabit. For more visit CPAC.
