I have been selected to exhibit one of my newest pieces from my ‘My Dark Ophelia’ Series, in the 50th Annual Scarab Club Photography Exhibition from May 12-June 26th, 2021 in Detroit, MI.

Which one? Well, visit the exhibition and see for yourself!

Due to Covid protocols, if you would like to attend the Reception on Friday, May 14th, you may register here.  I hope to see some familiar faces!

“For five decades the SC has hosted an annual unthemed photography exhibition, primarily showcasing the work of artists from the metro Detroit area. The exhibition is unthemed and expansive in the wide range of photographic technique, subject matter, and expression of the medium.”

Ralph Jones’ skills as a photographer have earned him a respected place among Detroit artists. Jones is perhaps best known for his photographs of the culture and community of the city of Detroit. He has shared his knowledge as a mentor for the Focus Hope: Focus on the Mission project, and exhibited his photography widely, including at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit Artist Market, Focus Hope Photography Festival, Norwest Gallery and the Scarab Club.

Alumni Exhibition 2015 SHU

Alumni Exhibition 2015 SHU - Panorama

Join Klemm Gallery in welcoming Kelly Burke (’07) and Brett J. Lawrence (’95), our featured artists in the 2015 Alumni Exhibition from 6-8pm.

Burke’s abstract paintings “…focus on process and physicality of paint. The repetitious layering of, taking away, and re-application of color underneath automatic scrawling, scratching and mark-making express [her] inner psyche…”

Lawrence’s photographs document a collaborative project with performance artist Satori Circus, in which the two explore “…things that [they] each hold dear…photography, performance art and the history of an oftentimes struggling city with its beautiful historic theaters.”

This Friday, Studio Angelico will play host to the Homecoming Weekend Welcome Reception, and Klemm Gallery will be open to the public. Satori Circus, the subject of Lawrence’s photos, will perform in the gallery throughout the reception, and the artists will give a brief gallery talk at 7pm.
