Image City Photography Gallery’s September 2018 exhibit is SNAFU.
John Kosboth is the featured artist for this exhibit. His work offers a range of visual experiences that suggest who he was and where he has been but not who he is today.
Some of Kosboth’s images consider city and country environments, culture and accepted reality and emotional reactions to city and country gun culture. Kosboth challenges his audience through creative and complex portraiture. Kosboth’s “Portrait” is shown above.
Visitors are also welcome to visit the Neuberger Gallery, where Paul English is exhibiting. Chip Evra is the gallery’s current visiting artist. Jim Dusen, Larry Eldridge, Nancy Ridenour and John Retailack are the guest artists.
Award-winning photographs from Camera Rochester are also on display in the gallery, as well as artists-in-residence and gallery partners.
SNAFU will be on display through Sept. 30 at Image City Photography Gallery. Gallery hours are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. on Sundays. imagecityphotographygallery.com
