TIERNEY GEARON: Private Princess exhibition

Thursday, October 10 – Friday, November 9, 2013

Opening reception for the artist: Thursday, October 10, 2013 from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

At the Eastern Star Gallery at Archer.

The newly renamed Eastern Star Gallery, located on The Archer School for Girls’ historic campus in Los Angeles, will begin its 2013-2014 school year with an exhibition of new work from Los Angeles-based photographer Tierney Gearon. The Private Princess exhibition will feature a selection of different bodies of work, including “COLOR SHAPE,” “EXPLOSURE,” and photographs from Gearon’s newly released, “Alphabet Book.”

The gallery will host a reception for Gearon on Thursday, October 10, 2013 from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

About the Artist:

A self-taught photographer, Tierney Gearon exploded onto the art scene in 2001 with her “I am a Camera” exhibition at Charles Saatchi’s gallery in London. Since her controversial debut, Gearon has pushed the envelope of contemporary photography. “The Mother Project” and “Daddy, where are you?” offered an intimate look into Gearon’s relationship with her mentally ill mother, capturing the raw intensity of the family dynamic and celebrating the artist’s free spirit. In 2009, Gearon pushed her photography to new heights, double-exposing film inside the camera to produce groundbreaking chance narratives in “EXPLOSURE.” In December 2012, Gearon photographed 13 Oscar Award winning actresses for a series titled “Hollywood Heroines,” which was published in the New York Times Magazine.

“For this show, the class and I chose a selection of current images of two different bodies of work that I have been working on simultaneously,” comments Gearon. “Both of these projects have been a huge friend-family collaboration, so it is fitting that “COLOR SHAPE” will preview at Archer.”

Gearon’s photography has been exhibited at many prominent galleries and museums worldwide, including Gagosian Gallery, Yossi Milo, Ace Gallery, The Parrish Art Museum, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and Phillips de Pury & Company in London. A preview of her “COLOR SHAPE” images was on display at Paris Photo and Los Angeles Photography Art Fair earlier this year. Her children’s photography art book, “Alphabet Book,” will be published in fall 2013 by Damiani.

On October 10, Archer will host a public gallery opening and reception for the artist from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m.

About The Gallery – its MISSION:

To engage gallery visitors in the collaborative journey of the artist’s creative process, and to build an expansive community around the shared experience of contemporary art, within The Archer School for Girls community and beyond. The exhibitions also serve to provide students with a real-life business model for gallery operation and art business management. Proceeds from art sales support Archer’s financial aid program.

 

ABOUT THE GALLERY:

The Eastern Star Gallery at Archer is more than a unique space to view contemporary artwork: it is the center of a vital dialogue between artists, students, teachers, collectors, gallery directors, curators and other art-lovers who are drawn to the Archer campus. Students with an interest in curation, exhibition planning, and museum and gallery management receive an introduction to the business aspects of fine arts through off-campus excursions and visiting guest lectures and panels of experts.

 

HISTORY:

By definition, the Eastern Star Gallery at Archer is a place of transformation. The space originally served as a chapel in the 1930s, offering residents a place of worship for more than six decades. During its subsequent metamorphosis, the 300-square-foot room served as a classroom and theater staging area before assuming its current life as an art gallery in 2006. Since then, this space has housed some of the most prestigious contemporary art in Southern California. In 2013, students renamed The Gallery at The Archer School for Girls as the Eastern Star Gallery at Archer, honoring the building’s historic roots as the Eastern Star Home for Women.
