Artist Spotlight: Richard Misrach

    The other day, I was introduced to the hauntingly beautiful photography of Richard Misrach. His photos of water really resonate with me, reminding me of the vast expanse of watery views on Lake Erie, where I grew up. I also found myself being drawn to his photos of the rolling hills and mountains in the American Southwest. As his bio on Artsy says, Misrach's photography explores "the importance of time in photos, in its infinite number of permutations" and "meditate on human intervention in the landscape and probe the environmental impact of industry".

    If you would like to see more of Richard Misrach's work, plan a visit to the Crystal Bridge Museum of American Art at the exhibit "Border Cantos: Sight & Sound Explorations from the Mexican-American Border" between February 18 - April 24, 2017.
