Silent Symphony: A Photographic Composition in Four Movements
On view through January 5, McLean Project for the Arts, 1234 Ingleside Ave., McLean
MICA CONNECTION: Ron Paras '75 (photography)
"Using a four movement symphonic structure as an organizing principle, Ron Paras presents over-sized photographs of both landscape and theatrically charged scenic images. The works are distinctive in their evocative nature, drawing the viewer into scenes both natural and staged. Dividing the works into Allegro, Adagio, Scherzo and Rondo segments, these black and white images pull the viewer into places both highlighted and created by the artist." - McLean Project for the Arts Exhibition Director Nancy Sausser,
