The Spot Gallery exposes reality

These photography-show participants don’t need color

When a photo appears in black and white, there’s little else to focus on besides the subject. A group of 20 professional and amateur photographers will show work that’s free from the distraction of color at The Spot Gallery’s Black and White Photography Show, opening from 6 to 10 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at 1835 Main St. in Barrio Logan.

“This show is a first for the Barrio Logan Arts District,” says Chris Zertuche, The Spot’s gallery manager and curator of the show, along with Mylow Lorenzana. “Images are stronger in black and white. They have a different intensity—you see the scene for what it is.”

A local artist who goes by Lady Savage was on Zertuche’s radar from a previous show he curated that included her abstract paintings. When he saw the black and white travel photography, another of her visual-arts passions, Zertuche asked her to join the show— her first as a photographer.

Lady Savage was recently accepted in the Lo Studio Dei Nipoti Resident Artist Project, which takes the grandchildren, nieces and nephews of southern Italian and Sicilian immigrants, as well as native southern Italian visual artists, and gives them a place to create art in a small village on the Ionian Sea in the Calabria region.

“In a place that’s so small and old-fashioned, it’s neat that people can see and experience art from another country right there in the village,” she says.
