The Flesh And The Spirit

Virginia artist Sally Mann will have a new exhibit titled “The Flesh and the Spirit” opening Saturday at the VMFA. Mann known for her large format wet plate photographs of her family and landscapes is one of my favorites.

I saw her large landscapes at the Reynolds Gallery many years ago and loved them. In conjunction with the VMFA exhibit, Reynolds Gallery will once again be showing more of Mann’s work in an exhibit titled, “Afterlight” with an opening reception, November 13th from 6-8 pm.

The “Flesh and the Spirit” runs from November 13, 2010 to January 23, 2011.

Talk: Sally Mann: Conversations (Sat, Nov 13, 10 am – 1 pm)

  1. Sally Mann is a very interesting artist although I don’t always like her results.

  2. Conservative Republican Says:

    More leftist pablum from immoral, socialist so called “artists”. What does this stuff mean? Norman Rockwell – now there’s a great artist. he actually paints and draws “things”.
