Exhibit celebrates the 25th anniversary season of the Williams Center

Sense of Sound, an exhibition of 25 black-and-white photographs of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
Running March 22-May 10, the exhibit is a celebration of the 25th anniversary season of the Williams Center and Orpheus’ 22nd year of Williams Center concerts. The Office of the President commissioned Fink to document some of the orchestra’s rehearsals in New York and subsequent performances at Lafayette over the last 18 months.

Fink will give an artist’s talk at 4:30 p.m. Monday, March 23, in Williams Center room 108, with a reception following directly afterward. Orpheus also will perform an open rehearsal from 6:30-7:15 p.m. prior to its 8 p.m. performance with Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg.

Gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays. For more information, contact Michiko Okaya, director of Lafayette art galleries, at (610) 330-5361 or via email.

Fink has been a professor of photography at Bard College since 1988. In a career that began in the late 1950s, he has had solo exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, as well as in major retrospectives at Les Rencontres de Photographie, Arles, France; Musee de L’Elysee, Lausanne, Switzerland; and Musee de la Photographie, Charleroi, Belgium. Fink’s previous exhibit at Lafayette, Fish and Wine: Photographs of Portugal, was held in 1997.

His photographs have appeared in The New York Times, Art in America, Vanity Fair, Vogue, The New Yorker, and The Village Voice. He is author of Social Graces (1984), Boxing (1997), Runway (2001), and, most recently, Somewhere There’s Music (2006), a volume of black-and-white jazz photographs. A show this past summer at the Pace MacGill Gallery in New York City focused on the Democratic primary contest between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The Williams Center Gallery is presented under provisions of the Detwiller Endowment. The Williams Center and Grossman Galleries are funded in part through a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
