June 6th in New Orleans: Sylvia Plachy Gallery talk at NOPA

The exhibition “Forever Hold Your Peace” juried by photographer Sylvia Plachy will open on Saturday, June 6th from 6-9 p.m.

From the event website entry:

The New Orleans Photo Alliance is pleased to present “Forever Hold Your Peace,” a group exhibition on the subject of weddings, juried by Sylvia Plachy. In curating this exhibition, Plachy, a Hungarian born, New York based, world-renowned photographer, selected 31 photographs depicting the traditions, customs, symbols and the rich human tableau surrounding wedding rituals.

Featured artists include Marc Pagani, Evan Abramson, Katie DelaVaughn and Kate Nicholson. A slideshow of 58 additional images will be featured in the exhibition.

“Forever Hold Your Peace” will be on view from June 5 through July 19, 2009 at the New Orleans Photo Alliance Gallery, 1111 St. Mary St. New Orleans, LA 70130. The opening reception takes place on Saturday, June 6, from 6-9pm. Ms. Plachy will present a Gallery Talk at 7pm, where she will walk through the gallery to discuss the show and her thought process in selecting images.

“I was looking for the same kind of pictures that I look for when I am photographing. I was looking for what would move me and for what I would never tire of looking. I wanted to see a burst of life palpable on a piece of paper.”

– Sylvia Plachy

Sylvia is a featured artist at the upcoming LOOK3: Festival of the Photograph, June 11-13 in Charlottesville, Virginia.
