Dual exhibition openings firmly place Patron Art House at Capture Photography Festival
Celebrating two exhibitions of contemporary photography, Patron Art House recently held opening nights, hosting over 400 visitors.
Its first involvement with Capture Photography Festival, both of Patron Art House’s exhibitions contribute to the reputation Capture has built over the years of being an event that aims to represent the full range of what can be done with lens-based work.
The exhibition focused on photography that pushes the boundaries of the photographic medium, with collage, digital editing or the application of commercial advertising technique.
Held at Fine Art Framing & Services at 1000 Parker St, In Plain Sight was on view only over the weekend from April 6 to April 8, 2018. For those who missed it, be sure to check out the artist’s links above to see their work and find out where they will be next.

Keith Mitchell: Phantom Shadows is a a featured selection of the Capture Photography Festival. This work is part of Mitchell’s latest series, titled Kleinborg Variations (KBV), in which the artist uses light and shadow to define space and shape using abstract planes and surfaces.
His early work often incorporated leather-bound volumes of poetry, tree branches, shells, and presented themes on philosophy, cosmology and transcendence. In recent years, Mitchell’s attention shifted to light and shadow cast over geometric shapes that he assembles from wooden components.
Also held in partnership at Fine Art Framing & Services, Phantom Shadows is on view at Fine Art Framing & Services (1000 Parker Street) until June 9th.
