Julien Levy Gallery, ground floor
Fascinated by the extensive journals of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, photographer Greg Mac Gregor embarked on a journey across America in their footsteps to capture with his camera the contemporary legacy of the famous 1804-1806 expedition. The exhibition features sixty of the artist's black-and-white photographs of points along the route, made over a six-year period in the 1990s. Excerpts from the explorers' original writings are included, paralleling Mac Gregor's emphasis on the human presence in the landscape and its impact on these sites today.
The exhibition is organized by Smith Kramer Fine Art Services and is accompanied by the book Lewis and Clark Revisited: A Photographer's Trail, by Greg Mac Gregor. The exhibition is part of a city-wide celebration of the bicentennial of the Lewis and Clark expedition.
