The Analytical Eye: Photographs by Aaronel deRoy Gruber

March 18 – June 27, 2009

Silver Eye pays tribute to one of Pittsburgh's most prolific artists, Aaronel deRoy Gruber, with a retrospective exhibition featuring over 50 photographs. Gruber, who recently turned 90, is still actively creating fine art photography. Her tireless effort and inspiring images that range from picturesque panoramas of landscapes to industrial views of steel mills can be found in museum and corporate art collections throughout the country. Prints are available for purchase.

Celebrated for her artistic vision, Aaronel deRoy Gruber employs photographic processes that range from traditional methods to the latest in digital technology. She is well known for utilizing unique techniques such as infrared photography and many of her prints are chemically toned and hand-painted. The infrared film and digital filters (sensitive to infrared radiation) produce an ethereal quality often identifiable by foliage that appears white and rose-hued skies.

The Analytical Eye: Photographs by Aaronel deRoy Gruber is an exhibition of photographs selected from the artist’s collection, Photo Forum Gallery and The Carnegie Museum of Art. The exhibition Co-Curators are Linda Benedict-Jones, Curator of Photography at The Carnegie Museum of Art, and Graham Shearing, Arts Writer and Critic. Graham Shearing explains, “We have re-shuffled the pack and dealt the cards differently for this retrospective. And now we can view this particular artistic life as a panorama itself, strikingly consistent and incisive…an essentially analytical eye.”

This exhibition is made possible by a generous grant from The Pittsburgh Foundation. Broadcast media sponsorship is kindly provided by WYEP/91.3 FM.
