The Artists Seen Project | Part 1 | Burchfield Penney Art Center Exhibition
Wednesday, October 26, 2016
It is my distinct pleasure to introduce you to photographer David Moog …
… and 620+ other artists from upstate New York!
Ok, as I’m sure you’re thinking right about now:
1.) what the heck is THAT all about??? Who is David Moog???
2.) WHY is Archival Methods writing this blog about this particular photographer???
3.) 620+ other artists??? YIKES!
Well, in a nutshell, 72-year-old David Moog is a retired former owner of a photography / business-to-business advertising agency, and by “retired” I mean that he has NEVER BEEN BUSIER! In fact, he photographs every day of the week!
The results of his efforts (thus far!) include the wonderfully composed portraits seen throughout this blog, more than four dozen(!) of which are slated for an exhibition at the renowned Burchfield Penney Art Center (more info below).
The Archival Methods angle? That’s easy, as when it came time to mat his large 15 x 20″ photographs David decided to use acid-free / archival bright white 8-ply 100% cotton museum board, all of which will be explained in more detail in Part 2 of this two-part blog (you can get there by clicking here, or on the link at the end of this blog, so read on!).
