Cultural Memory:
Fine Art and Rough Art meet and Shake Hands

The Photolab Gallery announces an exhibit of black and white and color pigment photographs, titled “Cultural Memory” by East Bay photographer, Mary Ann Hayden.

The show will run from November 10 to December 28, 2007 at the Photolab Gallery, 2235 Fifth Street in Berkeley.

The exhibit is open to the public, accessible and free of charge.

A reception for the artist will be held on Saturday, November 10th, from 5 to 7 pm.

Photographer Mary Ann Hayden, also a painter, began doing photography in 2001. An experienced and accomplished painter, Ms. Hayden has exhibited work for over four decades, so photography comes relatively recently for her. In her current exhibit, Cultural Memory, we see an intriguing pairing of experience - both the photographer’s and society’s: painting and photography, landscape and graffiti, architecture and sculpture, and so on. She says: “The image (pairs) in this show…have been conceived at the intersection of historical necessity and cultural memory.”

Mary Ann Hayden has a BFA from Washington University and, in addition to many exhibitions across the United States, she has also designed and printed letterpress books and one of a kind, limited edition artist’s books represented in over a dozen university and private collections in the US and in Europe. She is represented by SFMOMA Artists' Gallery.
