There’s just one week left of Sea, the exhibition now on view at Jen Bekman Gallery featuring the work of seven photographers including Katie Murray (BFA 1997 Photography) and Stephen Shore (BFA Photography faculty). In March 2001, Katie Murray was selected as one of PDN’s 30 most-promising photographers under 30. Murray’s work has been exhibited and is in the collection of the Yale University Art Gallery and The Museum of the City of New York. She has participated in numerous group shows, and most recently her work has appeared in the books Brotherhood and The Spirit of Family. At age 17 Shore met Andy Warhol and began to frequent the artist’s studio, the Factory, photographing Warhol and the people who surrounded him. Among the first to work almost exclusively in color, Shore, in 1971, became the first living photographer to have a one-person show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. A closing reception for Sea will be held at the Gallery, 6 Spring Street, on September 10, 6 to 8pm, and will be on view through September 13.
