Frank Armstrong has been making photographs for over 50 years. His images speak to the freedom of the open road and also capture many fundamental freedoms that shape contemporary American life: freedom of speech, freedom of commerce, the freedom to fashion ourselves with the objects we acquire. Yet few of Armstrongs subjects are picturesque or pleasant in a conventional way, and none of the advertisements or goods on display are ideal and intact. Instead, he delights in the decay and serendipity that the passage of time brings to the life of all things. Occasionally we might wonder if his photographs are more powerful statements about freedom from things rather than the freedom promised by things. He seeks the ironic iconic. Ultimately, his photographs embody an even deeper freedom: the freedom to find poetry and beauty in the objects our society would prefer to forget, the freedom to see that which we are told not to value.

The exhibition will run from October 9 through December 16. Call in advance to confirm hours.
