We are very pleased to welcome Barbara Freeman back to the library for a brand-new Local Art @ EPL exhibit. After debuting with 2010’s Road Light and following up with 2012’s smalltown: faith, flags, & firearms, the Evanston photographer and filmmaker has returned with All Dressed in White – a series of “color photographs that explore the gap between wedding day myths and traditions and the much-more-interesting reality… of two people trying to create a union.” You can catch this inspired show on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Library through the end of June, and don’t forget to stop by this Saturday, June 4 when it’s included as part of the 2016 Evanston Made gallery tour. Also, make sure to check back with Off the Shelf later in the month for a featured interview with the artist herself. Stay tuned.
We are happy to welcome Barbara Freeman back to EPL this month for a brand-new Local Art @ EPL exhibit. After making her library debut in 2010, the local photographer and film director has returned with an intimate exploration of Illinois’ rural communities titled smalltown: faith, flags, & firearms. You can catch this inspired series on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Branch through the end of September and also check out more of Ms. Freeman’s photography and film work at the website for her production company Freeman Pictures, Inc.
Barbara Freeman is a local photographer, film director, and the latest artist to be featured in our ongoing exhibition series Local Art @ EPL. Her show – titled Road Light – is currently on display on the 2nd floor of EPL’s Main Branch and captures the mystery in local, vintage road signs with a photographic series in eye-popping color. You can catch Road Light through the end of October, and after that, you can check out more of Ms. Freeman’s photography and film work at the website for her production company Freeman Pictures, Inc. I recently spoke with Ms. Freeman via email about her artistic “Aunt Babe,” urban inspirations, and desire to preserve the past through photography.
