In keeping with our mission to provide opportunities to new, emerging and local artists to exhibit their work, Galerie BMG is pleased to host Regional Redux, an invitational exhibition awarded to three photographers who participated in the 30th Photography Regional Juried Exhibition at the Albany Center Galleries, Albany, NY, in May 2008.

Tom Chesnut's Stillness series offers a meditative reflection of the wilderness unspoiled by human presence. The simple visual designs and abstract compositions emphasize the artist's spiritual connection with the natural world he has captured.

Taylor Gillis's Stems, Leaves images are compositions created from the basic elements of flowers …the small details contributing to the plant's beauty which are often overlooked. The resulting images illustrate the potential which exists within us to look for, and find beauty and inspiration everywhere.

Michael Marston's Iceland landscapes present the improbable quality of this unique landscape, a harsh and isolated realm, beyond conventional standards of beauty. The artist has captured the geological, cultural and mythic associations of this landscape in a visual drama which emerges from the tension between its beauty and violence.

Tom Chesnut's images are archival inkjet prints matted to 16 x 20 in editions of 25. Taylor Gillis's images are black and white darkroom prints from Polaroid negatives, matted to 16 x 20, in editions of 30. Michael Marston's images are 32 x 40 digital C-prints in editions of 6.
