AMATEUR
December 21, 2007 - February 14, 2008
Amateur literally translates from its Latin and later French origins as lover or someone who does something purely for the love of it without concern for other gain. Early photographers welcomed the designation and eagerly referred to themselves as amateurs in this sense of the word. All of the photographers in this show embraced their own scopophilia for the same reason and are sharing their work with other lovers of Writing With Light...

Pretty Lies / Dirty Truths
February 9 to December 2003
The first show of 2003 for BC Space deals with the demanding and urgent issues of our age. Entitled Pretty Lies / Dirty Truths, this exhibit will include artists whose work addresses the hypocrisy that appears to be systemic in the ranks of our political, spiritual, and economic leadership. At a unique time in the history of our world, when the United States is the unchallenged superpower with an extraordinary opportunity to use that position for the common good of man and the planet, these leaders are preparing to squander our resources on the most brutal and least inspired of human activities...WAR. Pretty Lies / Dirty Truths offers unflinching views and alternative perspectives of over four score artists who believe that underneath the current patriotic rhetoric lurk that same old motives driven by ignorance, arrogance, and greed. These artists all embrace the proposition that it is time to promote a better vision for the world. We further challenge that if any of the dirty truths presented in this exhibit are found to be untrue that we will offer a public apology and withdraw them from the show
