Charles A. Hartman Fine Art is excited to present Summertime, a poignant early body of work by the photographer Mark Steinmetz. The photographs in this exhibition were taken between 1984 and 1991. They were made in Boston and New England, Chicago and rural Illinois, and Knoxville, Tennessee. Like all of Steinmetz's images, they embrace the space between artist and subject with a curiosity that is empathetic and enigmatic. Summertime, a recently published monograph by Nazraeli Press will accompany the exhibition.
Mark Steinmetz lives in Athens, Georgia. His work has been shown widely at museums and galleries in the United States and in Europe. He has taught at Harvard, Yale and Sarah Lawrence College, and is the recipient of a prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship. His work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and The Art Institute of Chicago, amongst numerous others. This is the gallery’s third solo exhibition of Mark Steinmetz’s work.
